Fun Fluke Fishing!

Recommended Posts

I had asked about bait fish breaking the surface recently and someone mentioned I should try to fish a fluke around the bait fish.

I went out and did just that and had a blast! I would stay pretty far and cast to the outside of the bait ball, then retrieve it with a jerk pause. I seemed to get the bites on the pause. I even had a bass go airborne trying to get the fluke. Lol I'm pretty new to using flukes but I think I'll be using them much more, specially around the shallow grass that's everywhere in the lakes around me. Give it a try! Good luck!

Flukes are one of the best baits ever. I use the Super Fluke size. 

They are great for beginners because all you need to do is reel it in.

Do you not have success with them all year round or don't try them all year round?

 

We have success with them all year round.

I had success with white and albino flukes most of the year. This last time out I tried the albino paddle tail zoom super fluke and the bass were eating it up. I was swimming it on the edge of grass mats above the hydrilla.

I don't have success with them all year round. They don't do well in the heat of the summer. Also in the spring the water clarity is so bad that fish can't find it. That is when I go to a large spinner bait w/ colorado blade. But in the fall with clear water they produce big smallies.

O. Never had that problem. But I fish pretty clear lakes.

I have caught 2 bass on flukes. I like them, but I haven't had success. I just need to use them more I guess. Any advice for someone shorebound?

Keep your rod tip down as low as you can and don't be afraid to stop and let the bait sink. You will get bit as it drops. Also remember you are twitching the bait through the water no pulling it. That means moving your rod in quick, sharp snaps.

Okay, that may be my issue is pulling it.

I sometimes put them on slider heads and just slow reel or make small twitches. Works well around grass

i have caught fish using them in water temps from 34 up to 90+.  they flat out work.  There is a little bit of a learning curve of feeling bites but once you get that, you can catch fish on them year round in any type of water.

Flukes are definitely one of the best lures a bass fisherman can use.I like to fish them slowly with occasional twitches or twitch it side to side on top of the water.

If you can fish them under docks go for it.
