I was a pretty good fluke bait fishermen. I was one of high hook whenever I went on fluke party boats. I landed more than 20,000 fluke in my life.
However, many fishermen started to use bucktail/small jigs for fluke nowadays.
Guys who used them routinely beat me even they are beginners.
I met a good fluke fisherman who use only bucktail/jigs on a party boat in Long Island years ago and I counted how many hit he got. Amazingly he got at least 4 times more than I got.

We used to believe bucktail is working in shallow water. But it works in any depth. I observed that guys who get down smaller bucktail/jigs in deeper water get more bites. You need touch as well as ultra light rod/thinner braid to do it.

The fun part of using bucktail/jigs is you can create the best setup and test it. Here are some variations of setups.

This two hook setup is for using whole small squid or long strip of bait

You can attach teasers you like to the jig.
