Yes Ed finally hooked into some big bruiser bluefish today on the fly rod. He can no longer be called a virgin!!! Ed hooked into a bruiser bluefish within 10 mintues of launching the kayak using 1 of my lucky flies. To bad the fish bit the 6inch fly off. I hooked into a 15lb bluefish right after Ed. Then hooked into another bluefish that had to be close to 20lbs. Took me almost 8 minutes to get this fish to the kayak. Ed couldn't believe how this fish was beating the crap out of me. It was hugh and I'm glad it never made it into my kayak. Ed and I had more hookups. We both lost a lot of flies but it was well worth it. Ed later on landed a 4lb bluefish and also hooked into the last big bluefish of the evening that took him for a real nice ride. I think Ed can now officially be called a flyrodder.
It was a lot of fun watching Ed hook into these fish. And as I predicted on this post:

Ed was going to catch fish on his fly rod.

CONGRATS ED!!!!!!!!!

Took the pictures with my disposable camera. Once I finish them and get it developed I will scan and post it.

It think we'll have to start a 12-step program to get these people away from their fly-rods.

Congrats ED !!!!

Someday God will explain the universe to me ... while I'm waiting I'll go fishing

#20 bluefish? That's a scary thought! Sounds like you guys weren't using wire if you lost that many of your hooked fish. Were you using heavy mono? I usually use a 30 lb. mono. shock tippet whenever the teeth are around in force.

Must have been a great day. Not only lost your flycatching virginity, but got rid of that smelly skunk that had been following you around for the past few weeks

Looks like all that late night practice finally paid off

I guess it also took a real fly fishing guy to finally get you into fish.

Was it trolling? or cast and retrieve?

Once again, good for you!!

See you out there soon.

Tom

Thanks a lot guys!!! It was loads of fun hooking the first bluefish but I guess it swallowed the fly too deep. When I went to do a strip strike on it... the line went slack. Had a few other hook ups and lost those too until I hooked into the 4 pounder. So far all the fish were caught on the troll, so all the late night casting didn't come in that handy. Although Stan did compliment me on one of my casts. The biggest blue I hooked into was when I stopped paddling and was checking on my fly to see if I had any seaweed on it. When I stripped it a few times, I felt some bumps thinking it was snagging some seeds as it was being pulled. Then the line went slack so I thought it was free... then for some reason, it was pointing toward deep water. Then I realized I had a fish on.... The biggest of the night. Took me in all directions and took quite a bit of line. When the chance presented itself, I cranked like crazy. Had the fish up on the water, rod in my right hand swinging the fish towards me to grab the leader and it shook its head and cut the line. Oh well. Can't wait till I get a keeper bass! Woooo hooo!!!

Awesome! Fish put up a great fight on the fly rod; just watch out for the knucklebusting reel handle.

schoolie all the fish were caught using 20# floro. The only reason why we were looking for a big striper under the blues but that didn't happen.
