fluke fishingThe August 4 fluke fishing (summer flounder fishing)  visit to historic Montauk Point, Long Island was quite successful. Andy and Rich’s guest, Capt. Joel Lizza of the Sea Otter Fleet, shows what it takes to target trophy Fluke in the deep water. Big seas and strong currents are no deterrent as the bite was on, the action rarely slowed and there were numerous double headers. Rich, Andy and Joel really put their tackle to the test battling these fish and the conditions. Nearly all of the fish were of legal size and several were in the 3-5lb range, with the largest at over 8 lbs. All of the fish were caught drifting at depths over 40 feet.

“The summer fluke fishing bite on the east end can be very good.  There are many good spots in the open water east and south of Montauk Point.  Our original intention was to film there, but it it was simply too rough.  We ended up filming the bulk of the show out of the wind in Fort Pond Bay.  Fortunately, the bite was just as good there as anywhere else!” Capt Andy LoCascio
