The reefs are lighting up with fluke activity, according to Cathy Algard, Sterling Harbor Bait and Tackle, Wildwood. “The Wildwood Reef produced many nice fluke with keepers up to five pounds, while the Cape May Reef has started to produce more keeper fish this past week.” John Niewinski of Mullica Hill bagged a 3-pound, 15-ounce flounder caught on a live minnow in the ICW behind Wildwood. Nino Aversa of Washington Township fished with a buddy near the Grassy Sound area behind North Wildwood and boated eight keeper flounder. Schoolie stripers are all the rage along the back bay sodbanks, as anglers are fishing the predawn hours with poppers, plastics, as well as chunking sardines. And for all you crabby people — Crabby Jack gives the crabbing 4 Claws (out of four) this week and says there are some nice size crabs right now, just not in large quantities.
