Blues were all over Union Beach on Saturday...caught 2 dozen+ from kayak and had a feel that I could catch as many as I wanted ...it was dead calm in afternoon and you could see them cruising around...they were hitting anytjing...I mostly used metal...some were probably over 10 lbs...party boats were also having a ball

My estimate is that some of them exceeded 10 lbs and they were very aggressive
