Generally people drift for fluke. It's possible to just jig or do a slow retrieve, though. How are you crabbing? Would imagine it would be difficult if using handlines, but not too bad if you are  using traps (shaking the boat while fishing wouldn't help with catching a crab on a handline).

White bucktails work.

I know, I have some  Wink

I prefer just sticking some bait on a fluke hook and letting the current do the work for me though!

Live Killie turns even into better crab bait.....however if you're in the Red Bank area chances of catching Fluke slim....up by Oceanic Bridge much better but heavy boat traffic....

Don't know the Navi but you might want to try using traps attached to a float.  Set your traps in the line of your drift and pull them as you drift to them.  just be careful you don't snag your trap with your bucktail and you have enough line on your traps to reach the bottom without pulling the float under.  It might work.
