Veteran fluke angler Dennis O'Brien of South Bound Brook watched his daughter Danielle hook the boat's largest fluke of the season just a couple of minutes into the first drift with a 13. Danielle's fluke was the first doormat by a female on Elaine B. II, and just barely behind the second largest ever on that boat which is her father's at just one ounce more.
