Delaware anglers can drift top/bottom rigs lanced with killies and bluefish/sea-robin strip baits, bumping lone 2- to 4-ounce bucktails tipped with large live killies.

Camo: Fluke possess a highly developed camouflage system, making them excellent ambush predators.

Tease Them: Over/under rigs featuring bucktail teaser rigs tipped with a strip bait often prove deadly when fished close to the bottom.

New Jersey anglers can bounce 3- to 5-ounce bucktails and 1-ounce bucktail teaser combo, tipped with fluke belly; sliding snell two-hook fish-finder rig lanced with 8- to 10-inch fluke belly, mackerel or sea-robin strip baits too.
