8 fluke @ 18" May 24-Sept.7 (Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day. I, being selfish, wish they had lowered the bag limit and extended the season.
I fished quite a bit last summer and limited out only once. Who needs 8 fluke anyway? I release a lot of Bass, Blues Weaks, but I have a hard time releasing fluke. Personal shortcoming, I guess

Back in the day in San Diego when the size on Halibut was 24" and all we caught were 22 to 23"ers now that was painful .

Ouch...Is that similar to fluke fishing? By the way,I am in the midst of setting up a 9' wire line outfit for bunker spoon trolling, I recently acquired a Penn 113 metal spool reel and a 9' Seeker rod with carbaloy guides. The only problem I have, is that I am not too wild about trolling. I did have limited suces last year pulling Stretch 25s with spectra line. It seemed like I was deep enough to avoid the blues brothers, but, when they showed up it was a mess... too many hooks.

You can change out the hooks for singles on the Stretches .Just make sure that they swim properly . I've also seen some people cut off one hook on the treble making it a double . If you troll the wire with Drone's they have single hooks . Also if you run a dredge it will have singles . I always change out my trebles on all my jigs when fishing Stripers/Bluefish/Tunas . Most heavier iron comes with single hooks .

Pedro,
Pedro, Gotcha, I am with you 100 percent on the iron. I removed the trebles on the crocs. I do run a single rear hook on the stretch. I guess I could try them with singles on the body also. I'll see how they swim. I usually remove the rear hook on my small casting plugs, and never use a tail hook on a wooden plug. One bluefish can ruin a good thing. I am not into collecting used plugs. Thanks for the input.
