Finally got to take a break from my busy schedule that has had a hold of me and got the boat out yesterday. Went by myself to get away from everyone & everything, got to do it every once and awhile, its great for the body and soul.
Left the inlet, marked bait right away,nothing on it, decided to make a run north to the Shrewsbury Rocks where good Bluefish reports had been coming from. When I got there it was game on. Just about the whole fleet of head boats and about 40 private boats were in on the action.
After jigging up 5 fish, losing 2 jigs to the vicious jaws full of teeth, my arms were tired of cranking, time to troll for awhile. Out went 2 stretch 25's, one chartrus and one jointed blue & silver. Not long into the ride when BOTH rods went off at the same time. A lot of challenging fun for one guy to crank them in without tangling the whole thing up, and once at the boat, rod in one hand, gaff in the other, putting them on the deck. Great day on the water, nice Shark bait vacuum sealed in the bait freezer out in the garage.
