Where are they? If I remember correctly, they are usually all over the place this time of year. Any predicitions for when they will show up? Like most fisherman, I love them when they're not around and hate them when they tear up my lures.
i have fished for them a little bit with nothing to show for it. the other day I fished the back/inlet near OC and had a few hard bites on clam/bellies from what i'm sure were blues. Would probably have been nice 3 or 4 lb fish, but missed the hits. I had mackerel out there too, but that went untouched. So they're prolly just starting to get here. Last year I had a few nice ones to 28"/8lb
I was thinking about that corson's area in particular. They are usually smashing mackeral and any plastics/plugs we throw at them. Who knows, maybe that big group is still coming. Last spring was great for big blues in that area.
I have been getting them trolling plastics and bucktails from my kayak behind North Wildwood for the past couple of weeks on a consistent basis. Mostly in the 6-10 feet of water off the ICW. Roughly 20"/4lbs, but great fun on light tackle.
hey guys if you are looking for blues they are in absecon inlet and atlantic city back bays i had 1 almost at 10 lbs and another missed and got a load of small baby ones too all on makrel hope it help...
Ed, I guess it depends on where you are
fishing. I'm with you though...I've caught 1
blue behind O.C. this year. I was looking back
at my log book from last spring and I had blues
on almost every trip starting at the end of
April. Some big ones too. I'm not complaining
though, I've probably saved a few bags of plastics.
