17.0 in. Flounder caught by Chris Habeck fishing in New Jersey on 08/08/09
17.0" Flounder caught by Chris Habeck fishing on Saturday August 08, 2009 at 20:10 near Beach Haven in Ocean County, New Jersey (NJ), United States North America

I went down to LBI and stayed in Ship Bottom on 14th street. We decided to do some fishing so we hit the surf at around 9:00pm. We were useing bunker for bait in hopes to get some Bluefish. Now as you can tell in the pic its not a Bluefish and it was very dark because of some clouds! There wasn't much of a moon! So I had to hold the line to feel for bites. After about 30mins of fishing I felt 3 little taps, I hooked him on the third tap. I knew right away I didn't have a blue on because of the dead fight! I thought maybe I had a skate or dogfish so I was surprised when I landed this fluke. Usually Fluke dont hit bunker. I guess because I had a small chunk on the hook he was able to get it in his mouth. Anyways he was just about 2.0 pounds and 1 inch shy of being a keeper at 17 inches the limit here in Nj is 18 inches so I took a quick pic and released him!!!

Do bad not a keeper! When u do get one try filleting it then pat dry and spread on lightly crab or seafood stuffing roll and tie off with baking string and brush with butter salt and pepper to taste. Set it and forget it. Now were talking
