Video: Rhode Island Fall Fluke Fishing Tips

httpv://youtu.be/9D1p71n8p4g

Even though the season is winding down, fluke are still available in Rhode Island waters, as the New England Boating TV crew found out last fall (2013) when local fishing guru Capt. Dave Monti showed us some of his tricks for targeting big fluke in the waters of lower Narragansett Bay.

We fished one of Monti’s favorite spots—Austin Hollow off Beavertail Point, in the West Passage of Narragansett Bay. A deep trench here holds big fluke in the late season, and Monti goes about targeting them with big baits.

As you’ll see in the accompanying video, Monti prefers a slow drift (wind and tide in the same direction is key) and fishes a special “fluke cocktail” comprising whole baitfish, squid and fluke belly rigged on a large Kahle hook. He hops this concoction over the bottom on a 3-way rig and waits for the fluke to climb aboard.

The proof is in the pudding, as they say, so check out the results for yourself. You’ll learn a lot about fluke fishing in the process!
