  1. I roamed a lot of NJ beaches and jetties this summer all the way into winter. I have just been thinking that I all year I did not see any albie action. No surface feeding, and no albies taken by fisherman around me. Did anyone else have any luck?
  2. Hi, I use 15# PowerPro Super Slick with a 24” 25# fluorocarbon leader. I’ve used quick change swivels when Albie fishing so I can quickly change lures to see what lure type or color is attracting hits. i was told that the Albies won’t hit with a swivel on your line and that I should directly tie the fluorocarbon leader to the lure. Is this true ? Is there another lure attachment method that allows for quick changes when Albie fishing ? Thanks, i look forward to your reply.
  3. Albie season is coming up! Here's a set of discontinued YoZuri Livebait minnow jigs. Not positive what the color was called, mullet maybe? $25 shipped (continental US), PayPal
  4. I have accidentally caught a few albies from shore. It is a very nice looking fish. I have released the ones that I have caught as I didn't know anything about size limits or the type of the fish. I was told they are generally considered not good to eat. Since then i have done a lot of online research but I can find a lot of different opinions, some say it is great, some say it can't be eaten and other stuff like that. First thing I want to know is what are size limits on false albacore, if any are they posted somewhere? I can't find them anywhere in the website Second, what about eating, cleaning, cooking them etc. Are they good to eat? Why do so many people say it is not a good to eat fish? Thanks!
  5. So I've got this idea in my head to build a 9'6 distance rod using the kr-concept for launching mirrolures and gulps for specks as well as tins and albie snax for albie from the shore / jetties. I'm looking at 2 salmon/steelhead blanks and wanted to get everyone's thoughts on the blanks I'm considering as well as if this is even a good idea/concept. The blanks are St. Croix SCIII (3SC96MF2) and Rainshadow RX8 (XST1143F-TC). Both are 9'6" • fast action • med power • lure wt - SCIII - 1/4-3/4 oz. RX8 - 3/8-3/4. I'm just worried these salmon blanks might be too soft. Thanks, Dutch
  6. So far this year has been a year of firsts. I don't get out to fish much but late summer in a trip to the Caymans I caught my first ever bonefish. I always wanted to fish for albies. Had shots off the beach but never hooked up. My buddy Stan convinced me to take a charter. Last week we hired Joe Blados, the famous crease fly guy, out of Mattituck. All I can say is wow! The trip was awesome. We were into fish 15 minutes after launching and all day with very little lulls. The trip however was not just a first for catching fish, it was a total comedy of errors on my part. I have not been fully in the game for a while, however I was a total noob all day. First, while fighting an albie, my top 2 pieces of my rod came undo and I fought the fish with 1/2 a rod until Joe was able to grab the tip and put it back. Disaster avoided. As if I didn't take enough for that 1/2 hour later the reel knob came off my Lamson mid way through batte. I had to hand line the fish the rest of the way. Thats the reel knob I'm holding in my teeth. My fingers are still ripped up. Overall it was a fantastic day. I caught 8 fish, losing many other (i didn't lose the ones with the mishaps . My buddy caught equal amount. The fish got finicky in the afternoon and dropping to 12# leader did the trick. I had a blast. Thanks again Joe for a great day of firsts for me. Anyone have this many mishaps on one trip?? Keep telling myself I am just out of sync and need way more practice fishing
