Tank Matraxia and Marty Gras from Lyndhurst got into bigger fluke offshore of Sandy Hook with Capt. Kevin Cole from Brown's in Keyport. Matraxia had four keepers up to 5 1 2 pounds, but lost the fish of the day when a fluke of about 8 pounds did a back flip when netted by Cole -- jumping out of the net and spitting the jig.
The afternoon was much better, a good amount of angler participation and much better fishing, with a ton of shorts providing a lot of action and some nice big fluke being landed. Sean took the afternoon pool.
