Flukes, How Do You Fish Them?
Posted March 29 2012 - 07:49 AM
In Florida where I now live it is a whole different game. When and where do you fish a fluke and how do you use it? Weighted or No? In open water over grass or in pads? Slow retrive or short jerks or stop n go or something different? Since I started trying them here I have only caught 2 fish on them, and was with a slow retrive.
Any advise or help would be appriciated.

I have also had good luck with it on the C-rig. Seems I have caught most of them on the initial fall off the C-rig.

Thanks for the replies so far. I was trying to Jerk-Pop it along the surface, not doing so well. So if I'm understanding correctly, most of you give it a twitch-jerk then let it sink, then repeat. Is that right?
The Zoom super fluke and super fluke jr are more of a topwater bait for me, I live and fish in PA and the way I use them is I let them sink a few feet and then give a couple of quick jerks and stop it and repeat. I also like to use a 1/8oz scrounger for fishing close to but not in cover and open water. For a slug-o I fish the same way but I do move it faster as it doesn't come up as fast as the fluke and I found a bait that is awesome, River Rock Baits jointed jerkbait in 4" and 5", these are made with a denser plastic but they have a joint in the center so it has a lot more action than a standard fluke or slug-o. Those I fish with a jerk-jerk-jerk, quick stop and repeat, they stay a little deeper in the water so you can fish them unweighted much faster than the others.
