Looks like it picked up were the fall left off. I guess those bucktails turned into plain leadheads pretty quickly

Tim,

Tough day back there.%**# wind. Tried to get away from the blues and wound up getting away from the fish. Managed one bass 25". Hope your wife enjoyed the day.

They were thick in Great Bay this afternoon. They were pretty big too. With no net man I broke several off trying to swing them over the rail. The fluke can not be far behind.

the other day was getting so mad, just catchin sea weed.. took a cast and let it sink and right away i thought i snaged more red weed, i was like this is it, i'm outta here... started reelin in super fast and boom, drag started going out! took me a couple of cast after to realize what i was doing to catch it but once i realized it was the fast retrieve, every cast produced a bite or a fish. even noticed that the bass would eat it even with a little red weed on the lead head,but didn't notice any with the weakies.... now i'm a pink plastic pro. so if you've never had any luck with plastic like me,maybe just get mad. one of the first times gettin mad ever made me so happy!

. Choppers as well as cocktails. Bass still to be had along with some drum. Tide runner weaks as well!(got pink?) Season should be in full bloom come the weekend. PS..blues tend to make "history" out of nets. Might want to carefully gill em or "small gaff" em in the mouth for reliece.

</font>[/QUOTE]There no chance in he!! that I am trying to gill a big chopper blue. I was sucessful swinging the first 3 but after that they straitened 2 snap swivels in a row. I tied the next one direct to the and it bit it off. I did manage on 23 inch striper that I was sure was a tiderunner but it had stripes. All fish were caught on pink fin-s.

Not with the fingers bud! My fault for not elaborating. Can use a regular gaff & "carefully" come in from the gill slit & out the mouth. Piece of plastic tube can be used to cover the point to prevent impailing ;) (have lots on hand). Should you "be in a bind" (safety wise) or plan to keep some, thumb & middle finger in eye scokets makes for a perfect grip & calms the hell out of em.

Hey there Rick. Saw a guy on Monday lose a good part of his thumb just trying to get his jig out. Lose a few, but who really cares. Lost about 20 bucks worth of jigs to em already. Been catching decent , but no weaks since Sunday.

Hey Val whats going on. I plan to keep my digits intact. I have yet to get in on the weakfish action down there. Got out tonight and gave it another shot. All we got was four blues. Had one hit a run up near where you were fishing but could not hook it.

Do the "bluefish death grip" :D ...grab the blue hard right behind his head..up towards the top...and squeeze with your thumb and pointer finger. They wont move while you take the hook out.

Clamchucker, I saw a dude a few years ago do that on a Head out of CM. Mate netted it, and was gonna take the hook out. DudeMan says all cocky, "I Got it". I never saw a guy lip a blue before, but we all got some peace from that point on, cause Mr. Loudmouth "GOT IT" alright, and stayed inside the boat for the rest of the trip.
