South Jersey Report

What a fantastic start to fluke season. Flounder pounders were all over the flatties in the South Jersey back bays during the opening weekend. Several fluke hit the scales on opening day including a 2.93 pounder caught by 9-year-old Griffin Barber from Stone Harbor and a 3.51-pound specimen decked by Jack Morrissey from Merchantville. Morrissey’s fish was taken from Patty’s Hole behind Avalon and his crew had four keepers all between 19 and 21¼ inches, and all fish fell for minnows and squid.
