Without a doubt the last three weeks of fishing  are defined by two things for me.  One, I’ve caught more bluefish in the past three weeks than the past five years combined. They became a nuisance.  The biggest was13 pounds. Second,  it’s been an absolute grind to put the big ones in the boat.  Either they haven’t arrived in the numbers as in previous years at this point,  or the wild fluctuations in water temperature are keeping them bitchy. Here are some of the good ones. All topwater plugging in shallow. One big girl on fly this week

I caught more blues in one tide 2 weeks ago than I did in full 2 seasons combined('18, '19).

Every cast for hours. 6-12lbs. All topwater.

Fun when you're targeting them for topwater, and they're good sized. Nuisance when you're running soft plastics or eels at night for bass. 

All things considered, good to see em back though.

 

As for bass of size? Meh. Bizarre migration. Small waves came through fast and didn't stick around on their journey up the coast. 

This past New Moon was the worst June New Moon I can remember. Did bubkis from shore for anything of size.

Wow! Fantastic catches! I’ve been in schoolie jail so far this season (shore guy), but hoping to break out soon.

 

Tight lines!
