Fishing Report:
The bluefish jig bite was on fire today at the Shark River Reef. This is one of over 30 that I put over the rail today. In addition, I caught several dinner plate porgies and some out of season bluefish. Several false albacore and one Spanish mackerel were also caught.

Fished the same spot that I’ve been fishing all spring with the same pattern plug and got the same results. Landed 6 bluefish out of the 8 that I hooked while also missing 4 other strikes. All were in the #2-4 class.

Fishing Report:
Still catching the same sized bluefish, #2-5 at the same spot. Only thing that’s changed is the plug. I snagged the plug (the one a I posted a picture of a few days ago) on a buoy so I had to break out it’s replacement-same plug in the same pattern, now I just have to get battle scars on it😁

Fishing Report:
As you can see, Manasquan River bluefish have a taste for the bunker pattern SP Minnow.Been using this one since last spring and it still produces today. I see no reason to scratch up a new one. The only thing I did was upgrade the rear stock treble to a VMC treble. I’m thinking about taking off both trebles and replacing them with inline single hooks.

Fishing Report:
Hit one of my go to spots on the river this morning. Intel from yesterday said the river was on fire with bluefish from #3-12. U fortunately that was yesterday. Fished this spot for about an hour without a touch and only saw one #2-3 caught. Took a ride over to the inlet that that was completely dead as it was at the bottom of the tide. Returned to my original spot and a few casts later, I was rewarded. Had two other bumps but never came tight.

Finally found some bluefish this morning. Last year at this time they were in thick. The average size was also much bigger. Got 3 in the #3-5 class. Two on a SP Minnow and one a X-Rap.

Both my son (right) and I are hooked up with #15+ bluefish. Some don’t like catching blues but I find them to be some of the hardest fighting fish in the sea.

Skunked in the night for Stripers to find Bluefish blitzing on small bait at first light...I'll take it! The moon came through in a big way bring with it the small bait I've been looking for...only thing is during the day it seems only bluefish are around. let's see what the night tides will bring...fingers crossed for Stripers, and Screaming Drag!

This was a "welcome back" bite that was greatly appreciated. Nothing like catching Bluefish all day in a spot you knew they would be staging. Hopefully the next moon will bring the monsters, and hatch that stay put bait...Screaming Drag!

Fishing Report:
The bite was slow on an evening fluke trip so I decided to use my light spinning set up spooled with #10 braid. On the business end I lightened up my leader to #20 to which I tied on a 3/4 ounce bucktail with a closer teaser above. Casted out and would you know it, after just a few bounces I got slammed. The fish proceeded to run directly away from the boat. I didn't want to touch the drag, so I cupped the spool but that did little so the fish down. Wasn't long before I was into the Mono backing on the reel. Fortunately, the fish slowed and I was able to turn it. At this point guesses were made as to what was on the end of the line. Guesses included a big striped bass, cow nose ray and black drum. I was hoping for a big weakfish. The thought of a big bluefish did cross my mind but I thought that after a few minutes that if it was a bluefish it would have bitten through the light leader early in the fight. I was able to gain line although the fish still made a few more drag pulling runs. Eventually had the fish boatside and got a gaff stuck in it. As hard as it was for me to believe it was a big bluefish of #11+ hooked perfectly in the corner of the mouth where it wasn't able to bite the leader.

Fishing Report:
The Bluefish bite is still going strong. Cocktails ruled the day. There was a two hour run of none stop Gators...all were picky but we got it done. With so many cocktails around this signals the end of May, and time to focus on Striped Bass out East.

This is just another end to end, and slack to slack fishing trip. I almost went home when the skunk ruled they outing. I was encouraged to stay so I took a brake to at a cookie, drink a Gatorade, and a short nap. I woke to find the bite had turned on! Bluefishing like I'm use to...finally. Screaming Drag!
