First fluke fish

Recommended Posts

Caught this dink on a fluke this afternoon. I was lucky to land him because I accidentally pressed the spool down before setting the hook. Took me about five seconds to get up all the slack and set the hook but he was still on. I didn't weigh it but I think it's safe to say that it was at least ten pounds, right? 😉

 

Does my face make you feel uncomfortable?

At 67 not much makes me feel uncomfortable 😉

Nice fluke fish! Glad you got that topwater bite figured out!

Thank you man. Yeah, it wasn't exactly topwater because he hit it when it was a few inches below the surface, but close enough.

Yeah, I already like them. Unfortunately I think it's getting too cold to effectively fish them now. High in a few days is going to be 39. I got a football head jig and jerkbait ready though.

Is that a favorite white bird rod on the grass?

Yup. Have you used it?

No I haven’t used it but I like favorite and I recognized it. Lots of younger fishermen use them I’ve seen them a lot around here.

My first fish was a fluke, too.  Come to think of it, MOST of my fish have been flukes.

 

Does your face make me uncomfortable?  No.  But that full head of hair does.  Wish I had all my hair.

Yeah well he won’t have it for long, time flys, and mine is gone to but really it’s the grandpa on your mothers side that the hair gene comes from is what I hear, funny though because both my grandpas had hair 😆

I'm probably not the best person to ask because I haven't used many rods to compare it to, but I think it's pretty nice for the money. Not the most sensitive rod out there, but it's held up to a lot of heavy use, it's lightweight, and it's not too expensive. I am planning on getting a carbonlite 2.0 soon though. I need something for jerkbaits/flukes/shakey heads/etc.

Nice going! Flukes will work when no other bait will sometimes.

When you can't think of anything else  use Fluke 😉

When you see boiling on top of water use Fluke 😉

When nothing else works use Fluke 😉

I actually just switched to a lew's carbon fire (I got it for $45 on sale) and I would definitely recommend it if you can get it on sale, and if you haven't already bought a white bird. It just has better sensitivity, winn grips, etc.
