Big Bluefish Hit Cape Cod

Alex Ridgway

Getting out on my newly purchased Hobie Kayak is still exciting in and of itself. Yet after doing well last week with small keeper bass, I was more excited than ever when I launched the kayak yesterday morning.

The air temperature was a balmy 37 degrees. I broke out my gloves as I admired the flat calm conditions of the tidal river I would be fishing.​

To my surprise I got off to a very slow start, catching only a few schoolies and spooking a few better looking fish.

More...

I chuckled to myself, recalling how I had told my friend that I planned to catch my share of Stripers, then pick up a few Tautog, and then head to a different spot to try for the first Bluefish of the season.

However as many of you know, even the most well-thought-out plan rarely comes together perfectly, especially during the spring run.

  1. Why can’t you say where? Why does everything have to be a big secret?

  7. How about targeting big brown sharks from the kayak?

    Have you tried that yet Alex?

    1. I have thought about trying it! I think it would be really difficult to get a big one boatside quick enough to not hurt it.

      I do know of someone who did it by accident live lining a bunker, so it is possible! I believe it was around 60 lbs.
