I'm sorry, but it isn't a fluke. It is a flounder of the genus Paralichthys, one of the sand flounders. My money is that it's a P. albigutta, gulf flounder, but I would need to see more of its visible side to be sure. Google also P. dentatus, summer flounder and P. lethostigma, southern flounder. All three have very similar faces, but a positive diagnosis can be made by observing the arrangement and types of spots that are on the visible side. BHB = Blue Heron Bridge.
