Hi there fluke fans...

I'll be heading out to R.I. tomorrow on one of the party boats & was wondering if using raw shrimp would be a good idea or not?

Flukes eat anythig

I very been fluking forever 20years now, and I have seen fluke vomit crabs, shrimp, mussels ,Baby fluke and all kinds of fish. Sea bass love table shrimp and weaks love anything shrimp. But it's best to match the hatch offer what they are feeding on now. But do give the shrimp a shot. Its the a bait that u can eat if it's left over.

The only thing I don't like about work is that it interfers with my days off!

Well I got 1 keeper fluke on the shrimp yesterday while on the Seven B's.
So it does work, but not very economical.

Being that they tend to curl when they die I would expect them to twist.

Squid would be a much better option.

Expensive is all relative. If the bait produces when nothing else does its the cheapest bait around.

Thawed freezer burned shrimp work well on fluke, I've had fluke up to 6 lbs or so on them. Great tog bait too.

Cod readily hit boiled shrimp with Old Bay seasoning. Yes, I've tried it ... Better than clam ? Maybe ! But cost wise, definitely better options ...
