*Note from Ryan: this post was originally published on September 4th of 2019. I figured now would be a good time to share it again, because fluke fishing around peanut bunker schools is something you can try doing this late summer and fall.
Catching "keeper" size fluke is typically easier when fishing from a boat, but there are plenty of areas scattered throughout Cape Cod & the Islands where it's very possible to catch big fluke from terra firma.
Jetties and inlets like the one pictured above (which I fished yesterday morning) can be great places to try for fluke.
Often during late summer and early fall, there are large congregations of peanut bunker in these types of spots.
Yesterday morning I encountered thousands of peanut bunker, bluefish and fluke at an inlet during the incoming tide.
I also stumbled across more schools of peanut bunker, bluefish and fluke while fishing from a nearby dock.
It was a fun and exciting morning!
Fluke Fishing Video
I got a little creative yesterday and utilized a drone and various Go Pro cameras to film a video recap of the entire fluke fishing from shore adventure.
