I hear ya Ross. Since the blues came in on the beach, I opted for the easy way.

Jan, Glad you and Phil stopped to talk about OK's and the great drop off at MB. I think we all would have been gone and missed the fish. Certainly worth going back out there!

That's the truth Judy! Didn't think about that and glad I made the decision (with a little help!) to relaunch. Fun watching them blast the top water.

I just started to laugh when I saw your green paddle blades. It really was fun to watch even from the beach. I refused to feed bluefish my good plugs and the hook-out was in the car (completely unprepared to surf fish). I however set a record and caught 6 bluefish on a storm shad! It was a jointed shad after the first blue! Had to return to the car to get junk plugs and a hook out and they were gone. Fun Fun day!

They were definitely hungry. I hooked my first while letting out my lure in freespool 20 yards off the beach. Hadn't even engaged the reel. Then, before realizing just how thick they were, I threw a snag out to try to grab a bunker hoping for bass and had a blue chase the snag hook all the way back to yak! Switched over to a spook after that.

A buddy and I fished off of Lava. There were massive schools of bunker and some nice readings that weren't bait. We had several run offs but couldn't hook up.

We tried smaller baits and then we found out the culprit. As soon as you would drop down the bottom was covered with doggies. Fished for 2 1/2 hours with none of the right ones.

Later..... while the Devils were on, a friend texted me and said it was going off in the same area. He landed a 45 and a 50. He released the 50 but kept the 45 due to a gut hook set.


From this point on it looks like it will be a great season. Get out when you can.

Howie, I heard the same report from a couple of IBSP regulars who live by me. The had bunker in close on IBSP, but not the fish that Lavalette was blessed with yesterday. Asbuy to Belmar was dead, but there were boats all bunched up on bass/blues about a mile or so off of the beach. And of course, MB was on fire for a little while too. Just have to roll the dice and hope you rolled well I guess.
