10/17 Saltatrix


We sailed again this morning with Marty and Dan who are repeat customers and great people to have on the boat. For the 2nd day in a row we had Bluefish of the biggest variety, think 10-16 lbs. We actually weighed the largest fish just to confirm this and it was just over 16 lbs, which is a huge bluefish. There are schools of bunker tight to the beach–all the way out to 55 feet of water and beyond. We worked these bait schools to death the past 48 hours and have landed hundreds of Gorilla Bluefish. Word on the street is that there are large Stripers in the melee as well but we have caught nothing with Stripes on it although i am positive that they are there if you can get through the yellow eyed fish. I can’t complain because the action has been non-stop and when you want serious rod bending/tackle busting action there is nothing that matches up to jumbo Blues. We have 3 more trips this week and I am always optimistic that we will catch Bass on the next drop, that is what I am telling myself at least.
