I agree with MakoMike. Whole squid, 8-12 inches long, tandem rig, 30 lb. test fluorocarbon leader, 5/0 Gamakatsus snelled about six inches apart, and a fishfinder. Using this setup, I caught many 8+ pounders this past season on the Fire Island reef and off of the Ocean Beach tower - places not usually associated with big fluke.
Big bait - big fluke.
