Yesterday I was shocked to be catching monster bluefish during November! Big blues are still around if you know where to look, and are willing to travel.
Yesterday actually began with micro-schoolies jumping and chasing bait in the early morning sunlight.
After catching a few micros I noticed a large flock of birds working hard over what appeared to be some very large bluefish. I quickly reeled in my line and began to carefully hustle down the jetty rocks.
My plug got slammed on my very first cast with the Guppy mini pencil. The hit was terrific! Plus I caught the entire thing on camera.
It sure felt good to have a solid fish take drag, especially this late in the season!
Between myself and my buddies, we probably caught around ten bluefish in the 10-17 pound range. It was a memorable morning to say the least!
