Also known as ‘Summer Flounder’ this popular fish is a staple of Vineyard waters despite the fact it can be found as far south as North Carolina. The Fluke has the ability to camouflage itself by changing the color and pattern of their dark side to match their surroundings.
Fluke mature relatively quickly and often reach sizes of 26 pounds with a lifespan of nearly 20 years. Known locally as ‘Dormats’ for their massive size, Fluke is a fun and easy fish to catch and makes for a delicious meal. Fluke has a light, firm, mild tasting white meat that is perfect breaded, fired, with some lemon juice.
