Two nice hits this morning and then, limp line. 30# Power Pro was shredded above or near swivel. $50.00 worth of lures and hardware gone in ten minutes. What the "F" on a flip'in cross?!

That's what they do.Lots of times people think the bloofish they hooked bit them off ,when in fact another one came by and hit the swivel. (especially in a blitz) They will hit a swivel as it comes by even if there is no fish on the plug too. Hi Ronsmile.gif

I'd love to know too. I've only had blues cut my leader twice, once one swallowed an entire Krocodile spoon and the other time I was chunking with a 60 or 80lb steel leader and it cliped through it like butter. I've had the line above the leader cut a handful of times. I suspect it might be other blues. my brother has seen a blue cut his line while another was on.

No blitz. Never saw what bit me off.

View Postsometimes you'll get weed on the line and they'll go for that!

 

 

There was weed around.

 

There was also some green slimy stuff in the water that kept sticking to the line.

Everyone knows bluefish love weed!

 

I've never had them bite through the braid although they've nicked it darn good. Tough luck on the plugs, what did you lose?
