Bluefish !

I was right in the thick of a large school of pogies this morning but didn't see any sign of bluefish.

The bass were raising holy heck with them though.

Not many in Long Island sound this year...

 

Jack dick in LIS.  I caught a taylor blue bouncing bottom for fluke a couple weeks back.  We had that nice push of finning bluefish in early June but haven't heard of any events since.  Bunker schools should not be so peaceful....

Maybe we should think about the FACT that we don’t know if the bunker should be peaceful or not !!!

 

They are an important piece of our fishery !!! Guys let’s STOP being selfish and try to remember younger generations might want to have a chance to enjoy the waters too !!!

Lol you completely misunderstood my comment and took it out of context.  Yes they are central to our fishery.  The thread topic is about bluefish.  If bluefish are around they will turn a bunker school into a bloodbath.  I remember growing up there were years we couldn't even get a bunker out of a school and into a boat.  Some days we wouldn't even leave the harbor because you could snag and drop 15# blues until your heart was content and your forearms were ready to fall off.  Much different fishery then Maine, was just commenting that if they aren't thick in Long Island Sound like they have been historically, something is up!
