Very nice! What are the flatfish? Fluke/flounder?

And what's the round fish? It looks massive.

Those are summer Flounder, also nick named as Fluke.

We have the European flounder here which is a much smaller species,

Summer Flounder = Paralichthys dentatus

European Flounder = Platichthys flesus

Also, Halibut are part of the Flounder family  = Hippoglossus stenolepis

Interestingly, there are  8species of Flounder if you include the little known Flowery flounder which is only found in Hawaii.

The Summer Flounder grows pretty big, the rod caught record is about 27lb.

Well, sort of 50/50. 

I thought that Fluke were Atlantic Flounder, but when I checked the true name is summer flounder, which surprised me.

I knew they grew pretty big, we have friends in Maine that fish for them and stripers.
