  1. Does anyone do that? It's just another oily fish, like mackerel or bluefish or tuna, all of which smoke very well. Catch the fish, slash the throat all the way to the backbone, let it bleed into a saltwater bucket for a minute, and then bury it in a slush of cold salted ice (ideally, saltwater ice). Loin it later ... yet I've never read of anyone doing this. Has anyone tried? Hauling a cooler of salty slush isn't practical for a surfcaster, but this would be plausible on a sportfisherman or midsize CC.
  2. Selling 2 used Cortland 555 Little Tunny Rocket Taper Intermediate Camo Fly Lines: People know the fish they are used for, again they are used in real good condition: (one for sale) 10wt Intermediate - $29 shipped (has my own loop on it) (one for sale) 9wt Intermediate - $29 shipped (pre-tied loop)
  3. 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!
  4. There are some. I was practicing fly casting, and working my right knee, when explosions began happening. A mere 250-yard cast would have reached them, for the twenty or thirty seconds they were within reach. I'd be a really good fly caster if I could do that. Tomorrow I will be back, at the relevant stage of tide (early in the outgoing, a rip was just developing in the boat channel) when they appeared. Naturally they had to be on the far side of the channel.
  5. This post is stimulated by the thread about tried and proven albie (little tunny) flies. Brian Horsley, who catches more little tunny in a day then I will in my life, brought up the Tutti Frutti as a proven pattern. Pink on top, or is it chartreuse/green on top? One over the other, anyway ... now, there's apparently good scientific evidence that striped bass see yellow/Chartreuse colors better then anything else in the spectrum. Marlin see best in green/blue/UV spectra. (Anyone who knows otherwise is welcome to step in.) Is there any science, any non-angler's-WAG guesses at all, as to what part of the spectrum of visible light that's most visible to little tunny, and to tuna in general? I'll venture a WAG of my own. Bigeye, I'll bet, have the same vision as billfish, optimized for green/blue/ultraviolet spectra, because those penetrate most deeply into the water column. Little tunny, as best I know, don't dive as deeply as bigeye. They may, or may not, share the visual green/blue/UV visual acuity of billfish and bigeye. I suspect they don't because their habits are different. I note that I have not yet seen anyone, here or in Fly Tying, bother with an anchovy - sized Tutti Frutti. It most likely reflects a lack of imagination - who can believe that they'll bite something that weird? I'll give it a whack. Has anyone got any science to share on little tunny vision? If they're happy to bite on Tutti Fruttis off Cape Hatteras, there's no reason that comes to mind why they shouldn't do so off Long Island, too. Gentlemen, speak up. TLDig, if you're lurking, speak up too, it's been too long since we made seesaw jokes.
  6. Water's pleasantly warm for bathing, I was surprised by how completely comfortable I was in shorts while wading this AM at Cupsogue. Nothing biting save greenhead flies (ow). .... That said, anyone hear of any scombrid fish yet?
