Depends how fast your drift is, we have done both. If you have the right drift you can structure it to drift right over the wreck.take one said:this might sound stupid, but if you shark there do you drift, or anchor so your slick drifts over it?.
GOT TO BE A LITTLE OVER 40 AND YOU HAVE WRECKS AND STRUCTURE JUST AS GOOD CLOSER---THE BLUE IS NOT A BIG WRECK BUT THE MAIN THING IS WHERE IT IS LOCATED. THE VESSELL IS A TRAWLER ABOUT 80' BUILT IN THE 70'S AN SUNK IN APRIL 1983.Team Mayhem said:From Absecon Inlet, anyone have an idea of how far of a run?
the biggest mako i ever hooked....and lost was at the blue on a tuesday in 1991. it was at least 800, ate the bluefish fillet and swam all the way to the boat. when it got to the boat with the hook in its mouth, not a worry in the world i wanted no part of him. it was my first mako. he looked at me, and took off. he played for 1 minute before the jump that put the line in his tail and ,goodbye. im glad i lost him as if i could im sure i would have killed him but glad i didnt, and couldnt.bigfish4me said:Ahhh the blue...a special place indeed. Im kind of partial to it because i had an english setter growing up named misty blue. The other reason is for the one that got away. Now there is no way to know just how much this mako weighed but ill tell you this it was during the south jersey shark tourney and we had the ONE. She ate the deep line and 1hour later was boat side and im tellin you this shark was at least 10' long probably 12 cause it sure looked like it was almost half as big as the 24' er we were fishing.This is it were in the calcuttas its payday fellas, oops the first shot with the flyer doesent sink,ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ to the bottom she goes but every thing holds and 1 hr 45 min later this fish is beat and boatside again and the gaffman screwed the pooch again and just didnt get it done ....... in his defense this truly was a different kind of beast were talking 600+ lbs , and we should have had 2 flyers but after the 2nd miss gaff she sounded again and then it happened terminal tackle failure, im not sure just what would have happened if the gaff shot would have stuck, i know we definitly could not have gotten that fish in the boat, probably would have missed the weigh in....but we beat that pig ...just couldnt seal the deal. Funny that was the same year a grander was caught in montauk a few months later with a few scars on its side that looked awful familliar.
