Crossroads Bait and Tackle Fish Report > massive bluefish blitz
massive bluefish blitz

Aug 14, 2010

yesterday morning we were leaving the mouth in heavy fog and ran into a huge bluefish blitz in forty feet of water just south of the Merrimac River. We hit the blues on poppers and dragging niner rigs having double and triple hookups. The striper fishing was slow but we had a blast on blues with some 12 pounders around.

Tuna have hitting whiting off down lines between 18 and 20 fathoms. the whiting can be caught by tipping your sabikis with some clam or herring belly and fishing in 260-300ft of water off the bottom. These fish seem to be very shy and most guys are sizing down their leaders to entice a strike. Some dogs have started to show up as of late, hopefully they don't arrive in full force however we are seeing more.
