Lures for Bluefish

Recommended Posts

Hey, I was wondering what are some recommendations for bluefish lures. I've been catching them on sp minnows and deadly dicks. Also somewhat cheap, not trying to spend $12 on a lure where it may be gone after a few fish. Thanks

Hopkins Shorty is a staple for me.  

 

Plus it's alot more versatile than just cast and crank.  Work it like a jig off the bottom, stick a squid strip on it. About as "all purpose" as they come. 

 

Also check out Dan Tinmans Bluefish Busters.  Great affordable lure.  Skinny or fat.  Depending on the bait they're after.  Cast a mile.  Cast and retrieve with a jerk motion works well for me. Sells them in the CBST here on SOL.

Blues will eat anything , make it splashy on the surface and you will get hit. As was said use a wire leader if you want to keep your plug.   When they are feeding they  go crazy.  Suggest you go barb less and have a good gripper like a  boga to take control of the fish.
