Fished for those flounders on holidays in states with bucktails. Very predatory fish and a different species to the flounder we have.

[b]2017 hopes: first tope / a specimen flounder (2.5lb+ or >40cm+) / a 6lb+ wild brown trout

Yeah, New Jersey. There is some good fishing there and the fishery is very well managed. They are significantly bigger than our flounders too so good sport on a spinning rod.

thanks ecleary
what do you mean the fishery is well managed - are you saying that the flounder are protected? is permission needed to fish for them?
and where did you fish exactly? if you don't mind me asking.
Yeah, Long Island Sound where your man Skinner fishes certainly seems to be productive!
i might have to get the next flight to New York, lol. Maybe fly with United Airlines..

mickser they sound like monsters! are we talking about the same species and not halibut??
I'm struggling to see any flounder/fluke species that reach those proportions..: http://www.fishbase.org/ComNames/Common ... chList.php
would love to have a try for them
cheers

Well they have minimum size and bag limits for a range of fish including fluke. You also need to register to fish, which was free from memory. I was in wildwood; I don't think it's a hot spot or anything like that but got a plenty of flounder there at 3 to 5 lb size. All on bucktails.

wow, wish I had known they were there when I was in wildwood 20 odd years ago!
All I ended up catching was small sharks from the north end :roll:
