Looks good Bob! How long did you have them in the smoker?

Thanks.  They were small, only 3 hours @ 175*.  Wood used was alder.

Man I fished three sessions on a south side beach over the weekend and didn’t find one blue fish. Very odd.

I actually caught the bluefish that Bob smoked.

 

I've been catching them pretty regularly on the Cape for a month and a half. On Thursday night there was a school in tight & thick at the spot I was fishing. I caught at least a dozen. Dropped about a dozen more. It was stupid fishing. I tried again on Sunday night and Monday morning. Not a bluefish to be seen. Not even a hit.

Bob,you don't brine the fish at all?

I smoke fish with a brine for 4-12 hrs 

 

quart water with 1/3 cup each salt, sugar and soy sauce.  I like allspice berries cracked and bay leaf 

 

smoke with alder
