When fishing a fluke lure, you want to make sure to use a light-action rod and reel. This will allow you to feel the fish bite, and also make it easier to set the hook.

You’ll also want a monofilament or fluorocarbon line in the 10-20lb test, with a leader in the 20-30lb test. For bait, use a strip of squid, mullet, or bunker. Cast your lure into the area where you think the fluke is holding, and slowly retrieve it back towards you.

When fishing in shallow water (6ft), simply reel your lure in at a steady pace. Pay attention to your line, and when you feel a bite, set the hook immediately. Fluke is delicious table fare, so make sure to keep a few for dinner!

There are a number of ways to fish a fluke lure, but the simplest way is by casting it out and then slowly retrieving it back towards you. You can also twitch the lure up and down as you reel it in to make it look more like a real fish.

When fishing for fluke, you’ll want to use light tackle and relatively short casts. You should also use a very slow retrieve, especially when fishing in shallow water.

Fluke are ambush predators, so they often lie in wait for prey before attacking. By using a slow retrieve, you’re mimicking the movement of an injured fish – something that fluke love to eat.

There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question, as the most effective way to fish a fluke lure will vary depending on the specific fishing conditions.

However, some tips on how to fish a fluke lure that may be helpful include using a slow retrieve and working the lure in close to the shoreline or structure. Additionally, it can be effective to use a twitch and pause motion when casting the lure.

There are a few techniques that you can use to fish a fluke lure. One of the most popular techniques is called “walking the dog.” To do this, you cast your line out and give it a quick jerk to create some motion in the water.

Then, you slowly reel it in, allowing it to move back and forth in the water. This will mimic the movement of a real fluke. You can also try twitching your lure back and forth as you reel it in to create more motion.

The best way to fish a fluke lure is by casting it out and then slowly trolling it back in. You can also use a jigging motion to fish the lure. Make sure to use light tackle when fishing for fluke, as they can be quite delicate.

To fish a fluke lure, you’ll need to use a light tackle setup and a spinning reel. You’ll also need a 6-pound test monofilament line and a No. 1 or 2 baitcasting sinker.

Cast the lure out and allow it to settle on the bottom. Then, slowly retrieve the lure back to you by reeling in the line with your left hand and using your right hand to twitch the rod tip slightly.
