Got out into the Ocean out or Jones Inlet for fluke yesterday in 55-70 feet of water south of the Needle 10:30 to 11:30. Hooked 4 fish one fat keeper fluke on the boat. I have a 25ft Grady Sailfish. We were able to hold our spot with the use of the GPS but the drift was up to 1.1mph at times. Is a drift sock in order out there? Also used 8-10oz bank with 20lb mono and very hard to feel the fish bite. I think I lost a couple from premature hooksets. My thoughts are to slow the drift with a drift sock, bounce the weight off the bottom so it does not catch and use bullets. Any other good tips for fluking in 60 feet of water and feeling the strike.
