Trust and believe that when your catching monster Bluefish that bigger bass are close by. Striped bass and Bluefish have a love-hate relationship...kinda like us humans. Bluefish are super competitive feeders and can swim much faster than striped bass. Stripers are lazy so they hang behind blues in a blitz to pick up the chunks that float to the bottom. Blue Fish feed stripers so that's the love part of the relationship. Given the right size, they will eat each other, and both are even cannibals. That would be the hate portion on both sides.
I know one thing seems to puzzle me. If you're catching all bass first, and then start catching blues the whole bite dies off...just the reverse order it seems to last a longer time. I guess that's one of the many reasons why most fishermen don't like catching Bluefish...I don't mind. Stay Bent!
