Sea Robins caught on soft plastics

I got two last weekend. Been doing this thing we do for a long time and never had Sea Robins on soft plastics. 

The funny thing is one hit on the surface.  Granted the water was low but small bass were hitting on the surface. 

I just had to chuckle when I saw the Sea Robins on my soft plastics,  lol:howdy:

I get large ones on tins all the time. 20+ inches

 

I'll probably get more on plastics this year, cause I wanna fish more plastics.

I have caught literally hundreds of them fishing gulp swimming mullets.And using my own homemade large grubs. Caught so damn many I have given up on some of my fluke spots.The instant my baits hit bottom they were on. I swear if you move to avoid them they just follow you.

They're not very fussy about color either.

I've caught them trolling, bait fishing, swimming plugs, diamond jigs.

Night time, day time. Boat, shore.

Interestingly I've caught 0 skates in the past say 10 years since the robins moved in.

I keep hearing about alien UFO bases under water. Is it possible they're not really fish but extra testicles from another galaxy sent here to take all of our stripers and blues back to their planet?

If I'm not catching fluke but am catchin large searobins, I'm still eatin:howdy:

 

And on fluke gear, the fight isn't horrid. 

 

But your right about skates.  My nephew got a nice clearnose 2years ago, but I don't think I've caught one in quite awhile.  I haven't seen a barndoor in 20years.

The BIRDS jump all over soft plastics in Jamaica Bay... and the Lizard Fish too.

I have never seen a Lizard Fish here in Long Island Sound. Otherwise they'd be eating my soft plastic baits too.

Sea Robins on light tackle are a lot of fun.  I get lots on small jigs with plastic swirl tails and enjoy it.  This year I'm gonna keep a few and see how they are smoked.

I catch sea robins all the time when I fish for bass and weakfish with plastic and/or bucktails.

 

Last week, we were fishing up in Connecticut when a robin came up under my friend's popper.  Didn't actually hit it, but if the retrieve was maybe 20 feet longer, it very well might have.

Sea robins will follow a sluggo in and try and take the lure when it's hanging above the water.  Like a dog jumping for a treat.  I've also had sea robins eat my casting egg instead of the fly.

I keep a few if big enough.  Do a quick marinade of mirin, black pepper, pinch of salt and baking soda.  Broil and serve like eel sushi with the sauce and sesame seeds.
