Two weeks ago we caught a bunch of Albies on the fly out of Moreshead on the fly. Keep the faith they will show . Too bad they dony stay in one place for more than 30 sec.
pulling an old thread up in celebration of the unofficial beginning of fall!
I have one goal this year:
1. catch an albie from the surf (if they are around)
(1a. catch an albie from the surf on the fly (if conditions permit)
In the late 90's we had days in shark river were you could catch all you want. Between me and Bill we caught over 30 on a tide. Some of the fish were in excess of 10lbs. All on hot green candies and bend backs. Water quality is KEY. Clean blue water, outgoing tide 99 percent of the time. The Albies r thick on the edge of the mudhole and have been for 2 weeks already . Need clean water on the beach or forget it.
hot green surf candies... nice
I hear ya about the clean water. That's when I've seen them in close so it makes sense.
picked up a few albies at the mudhole on Fri morn. all were on a dead stick, drift. Chartruese, clousers. picked up a nice chicken mahi on the pots, throwing Killies. Had a nice bull whack my fly but got off. I found that the mahi were more active at 50nft away from the pots. Water temp was 75 deg F, clean blue water.
I've been looking for a group to split a trip with using Shore Catch for albies. If anyone is interested in joining up to split a charter, I would be interested for the next week or two.
I would be interested. I fished with Shore Catch Tom on the 39' Yellowfin for stripers. Anytime this wek or next. Then I go to Mexico for billfish on the fly.
