05 Aug Big Bluefish Everywhere!
There is no doubt that this last moon brought in mass amounts of new bluefish to our area! While we are still seeing the chunky 9-to-14-pound resident fish that were mixed in with the spring striper run, there are more and more new schools of “ocean darts”- long and lean blues that certainly are hungry!
Trolling is still the ticket for success, as we can cover a tremendous area in a short amount of time to keep the reels screaming and the anglers into nonstop action. There were too many double-headers to count. No one has ever seen a monster bluefish bite like this one!
As an added treat, we are also seeing more and more schoolie bass at dawn and dusk, mostly on light tackle spinning rods with surface poppers.
