Bluefish and Stripers…Plentiful and BIG!!!

Sunday was a day to remember. Bluefish in the 15-20 lb class and lots of Stripers. Both tides produced but a slight edge to the flood tide. This year the Bluefish have not only been plentiful but BIG. Let me tell you a 15-20 lb Bluefish on a light spinning rod or a 9wt fly rod is all that the equipment or you can handle. Stripers were hanged up in schools of thousands of fish slurping baits at the surface. Every reef has fish crashing baits depending on the tide. Don’t recall fishing gm ever being quite so good. Flies used larger Clouser Minnow. Spinning gear bait either paddle tail minnows in 5” or chrome tins.
