Today my buddy George from G&B Fishing Systems and AVET reels, got his crew together from Jersey to angle some bluefins.
One thing about these fish, if you want to test out your gear, they’ll do it. It wound up being a picture perfect day, and the fish cooperated. All we used today was jigging tackle, conventional and spinning. I don’t know how many bites we had, but I think we landed close to a dozen fish which ranged from 80 to 120 pounds. We killed the first one we caught, which was probably one of the smaller ones, and also jigged up a few blackfins as bi-catch. We did have one fish on a popping plug first thing this morning, but the hook straightened out and he got away. Everybody in the group managed to catch at least one, and by the time we packed it in, they were ready for a rest! Thanks George for setting up the trip, and I’ll see you guys soon.
