The chopper bluefish were on the bait of the jump! The tailors were stubborn and not taken any lures but after a slow shift in tide and the blues grew a taste for poppers. A good buddy of mine nailed a beauty 16+ pounds on the scale! I was reluctant to slap one on the the bite turned off. Back to bait and picked a few then the bite slowed. The lure chuckers using diamonds picked a few while the bait and popper people watched. Then the bite subsided and back to bait. On the dropping tide the chopper blues dispersed or did they. I had a few good'ums in there too!
Contrary to popular belief bluefish can be very picky, finicky and lock jawed at times. And of course they can be ravenous voracious feeders just like striped bass on the bite. I can remember countless nights in summer trying to raise a bite finding that one right lure then success! That is about as rewarding as fishing gets! I Hope you enjoy spending the day with me and thanks as always for watching and hope you enjoyed the video as much as we did making it.
