On Sunday, Dan McGraw and Mike Garron left Long key marina in Waretown as the sun was rising as usual on their 25' Steiger in search of  some great fishing.
They broke Barnegat inlet and headed North to fish with the rest of the party boats and pack around the tires. After catching 12 short fish they decided to move away. Headed South past Harvey Cedars they found some nice structure in 50' of water. It was getting late in the day and the drift was just starting to pick up. They derided to change out their baits and loaded up a spro bucktail with a green teaser trailing along. After 3 or four skates they decided on one more drift... then Bang.  Reeling the fish up and having some fun thinking it was another skate, the fish surfaced and the game faces were on. They netted the fluke and immediately wanted to get it on the scale.
The Fluke measured and even 31 inches and weighed in at 11lbs. The arsenal that was hit was Berkley 3" green gulp and spearing.
