July back Bay summer flounder fishing


The action started with a 23″ summer flounder followed by a 21″, 17.5, 17, 17.75 and numerous  small flounder. I also lost a big summer flounder, that is haunting me.  The water clarity was about a 6 in the spot I caught the fish, and a 2 in some areas. This was do to  a few thunderstorms that rolled through last  night. The water temperature was 73 degrees.   Overall, it was a beautiful day to be saltwater fishing the sounds of Cape May County, NJ.  It takes more effort to catch keeper summer flounder in the back bay waters this time of year, but it beats  a 20 mile ride to the old grounds.
