Went out on the doris mae last night on the 1/2 nite blue trip. First let me say that, last nite was one of the best fishing experiences I have ever had! We had an excellent spot on the boat, ( the stern ) and reall ybeat the heck out the fish. I had taken my girlfreind, who has never been on a charter boat, and since our daughter was born hasnt been able to get out fishing, so she deserved it greatly! We boated between 30 to 40 monster blues just between us! we brought home our limit because I love blue fish and have plenty of people to give it too as well. Everyone on the boat did well as far as I know. We did get into some rather large sharks as soon as we pulled up but not for long. we left them biting. great nite and thanks to all crew and capt. He really knows his stuff!

my great grandparents loved the blues as table fare- But that recipe, noone else in the family liked. how do you cook it? I have hear soaking the fillets in milk or deep frying them helps.

Congrats on your day with your wife. nice work

We had to run for about 1 hour straight out, and the mate tells me that the other day they barely got out of the inlet cause the blues were so thick, but they get out farther and farther every day. Id say we went out 20 + miles. I cut the red strip out of the fillets and deep fry the fillet, man is it good. I think some people have just had a bad tasting batch of blue fish or something because I think it is an excellent tasting fish, but not as good as striper! Thanks alot guys

Bent Rod 23,
Thanks for the report! Sounds like and awesome trip.I thnk the key to a great tasting blue fish fillet is to bleed the fish immediately after catching and then put directly on ice ASAP. This has always worked with me.

My friend puts them directly on the barbecue and keeps basting them with some sauce he makes with oil and other stuff.He chunks the blues, not fillet. No aluminum foil or anything. Taste better than any blue I ever ate.

My wife makes fish cakes out of them. I cut all the dark meat out first, then I leave the rest up to her.
You can't even tell it's blue fish.
We also cut them up in chunks, batter with old bay and cover with hot sauce, similar to buffalo wings.

My son and I were on Barnegat Light this past Saturday and we nailed them also. We left the dock at 7:30pm and headed pretty much due east. We dropped the lines over at 9:00pm and the carnage began.

All the head boats were fairly close together as you could see the lights from the other boats, in fact we sailed right past the Doris Mae and set up not far away from her.

The action was fast and furious with all the blues you could want. It's been a long time since I got that bloody on a fishing trip. :D
