We we're just talking about those things in another thread

I'd love to be able to consistently target them

I've been targeting them in NJ for the last 3 years with some success. I learn a little more each trip so hopefully i'll be able to catch more.  I fish from my kayak so i can only fish when the wind and boat traffic allows. They put up a great fight.

Well summer hit hard this past weekend and appears to stay with us with extreme heat. Water was just hitting 80 on the Raritan just heading out into the ocean. Huge schools of bunker and if you found the right one the blues were on them. Lots of them. Lost to many lures with double hook ups. Blues taking the lure while in another ones mouth. The best sight is seeing them launching out the water with the lure still stuck in the mouth like  20 minutes later. Looks like I'll be tying 80lb instead of 50lb next outing. Fluking has been slow for about a week now. Seems deeper water is doing the job now unless early morning or sundown you can hit them shallower. Be careful in this heat guys. I came off the kayak today and had a huge head rush from heat exhausting. You don't know it until you take that break.

Found that out once. Early May, 80 degree air temps in the afternoon with a cold morning, cold water temps. On the yak all day with a wet suit. I went to get off the yak and couldn’t even stand. I just beached, stumbled to the truck, and sat for an hour to get my head straight. That was probably my fault but it’s def Scary

Out back OC. Power drifted the edges of a deep hole and then drifted straight over as the tide picked up. All fish picked in about a 50 yard radius in ~10-15 feet of water, all on the edges. All on gulp/bucktail w a trailer hook also tipped with gulp. My cousin clocked his PB, which dwarfs my 18 incher next to it lol. Thankful water is warming up so we can finally ditch flats fishing.IMG_1232.JPG.6b9e1d0f6742b83a6a185d298a831257.JPG

Only 24.5, but nice and thick. Had a small sea robin or 2 in its belly. They and some blowfish were harassing us throughout the day

That's sweet revenge.  The other day I watched a sea robin hector a 4" fluke and eventually eat it.  The poor little fluke was tail walking all over the place but the sea robin was relentless.

I'm sorry but 24.5 inches shouldn't be labeled as "only". That's more than a solid flounder.

Fishing has turned to garbage this week. Out back CmC last night from 530-730 and nothing again except for a **** load of seaweed. Had something nibble but probably only either a snapper or maybe small sea bass. More rays swimming around. There are more of them this year than i have seen in the past so not sure what's going on with them. 

 

This morning 530-630am, not a tap. This sucks.

Lol i say only because that fluke had some shoulders on him. First glance looked at least 26+, and he weighed more than an "average" 24 incher, almost 6.5lb
