Giant Bluefish and a Thresher.

Fished Guy, Christine, Cameron & Alex yesterday afternoon. Guy and Cameron are experienced fishermen but not so much for Christine and Alex. As it turned out experience wasn’t an absolute requirement as we caught Giant Bluefish until the whole gang (including me) was completely worn out. Interesting that these fish were on top under birds and deep to over 100’. Many times we’d hook up on a fish under a bird on the surface and at the same time catch a fish on a deep drop. The gang caught fish after fish and every fish they caught was at or over 30” (about 15lb at 30” BTW). The fantastic bite was topped off with a huge Thresher Shark joining us in the feeding frenzy. I’ve seen a lot of threshers over the years but this particular thresher was HUGE. Anyway as long as I’ve been doing this I don’t recall ever getting into and catching so many Giant Bluefish. So very happy to share the days experienced with such a nice group too.
