Im thinking bout making a trip on the Sunbeam either tonite or tomorrow morning. Their morning trip leaves at 6, which i think is too late. My question is tho, what kind of bait/jigs should I bring cuz there is no way in hell your ever gonna see me using a whole frozen herring for those toothy bastages.

SS,

 

They will be fishing the Race diamond jigging the bass and bluefish. You need a 6.5-7 foot medium boat rod and a 3/0 size reel spooled with 30# mono and an 80# shock leader of 15 feet joined with a double uni-knot.

 

Regular diamond jigs of 6-8 ounces with a single 8/0 hook. It's about 60/40 bass and bluefish right now. The time of day is not an issue. You need a moving tide to fish the rip. Daytime jigging at the Race can be very hot this time of year.

 

They will shortly start there night trips fishing the same area drifting eels. That's when you will see fish in the 30-40 lb range.

 

Good Luck,

 

Al
