Inshore Bluefin :)

I know you guys up north get the bluefin in close to shore sometimes but it's a very rare treat for us here in Virginia Beach. There has been a great bite for the last 10 days with most fish in the 100-300 lb range and most have been caught anywhere from 1-4 miles off the beach. We caught this little feller about 3 miles off the beach on Saturday, 75" FL and 225 lbs. Sushi anyone?

Nice. What were they feeding on?

 

big bunker, most hook ups were on boats fishing for striper so they mostly resulted in breakoffs. We went out with 50W reels looking for the big one...

 

We did get ours trolling tandem rigs that were appropriately sized for big striper, but beefed up with heavy hardware
