There was one guy next to me, but we didn?t formally meet so I thought it would be inappropriate for me to ask him to pee on my legs I wasn?t at gunnison otherwise there would have been a line

Very good advise coming from what sounds like unfortunate experience.

I put in a few hours seeking fluke behind IBSP yesterday afternoon. Only one fluke at about 16", and the bluefish were all over the place destroying my Gulp...so I put on a little mackeral jig

and proceeded to catch 15 to 20 fish from 1 to 4 pounds until the tide changed and they all disappeared. Great light tackle fun! I clipped the barb so C&R was easy, although I had a few threw the jig back at me.

Kingfish are nearly everywhere in the wash, kind of like blueclaw crabs (and little blues) in the bay.
Spanish macs... I've never been at the right place / time to run into them. I'd love to, though.
My guess is that being able to run and gun chasing birds in a boat would up your chances. They're sort of like albies in my limited experience - they are very mobile and you just have to put your time in getting the experience and putting yourself in the way of luck.
Speaking of albies, with all these other summer visitors getting here early, I'm looking to hear about the false albacore showing up by the end of July.

Kingfish that are 10" or so and up are great eating. No need to filet, just cut the head, gut the fish (making sure the push out the "red" blood) then pan fry in very light film of oil, salt/pepper (and I like a touch of old bay). a few minutes a side and the meat will peel right off bones!


Do not pass these fish up, if you like a good breakfast after a morning stroll!

and if you want a good fight, downsize to an 8' 1-2oz rod (risking something bigger breaking you off) and these fish fight better than most trout.

Guess kingfish are on everyone?s mind. I got 3 clams yesterday morning to try for them before work in SoMoCo. Was using a much smaller rod than Rob mentioned and it ended up being a real blast. Used a high low rig with 1 oz bank sinker on a 7ft inshore ugly stick paired with a 3500 spinfisher. Kingfish we?re supposed to be on the menu ( at least for shark bait) but got into fast trigger action on my first cast a little before 6. The Triggers went through my clams in a hour with me taking my time shucking and cutting them into small strips. Tonight I managed one small fluke on the low dropper of the same rig with a bucktail on the bottom after sacrificing half a dozen gulp mullets to the little yellow eyed ones.

Timing...
I was back at Barnegat Bay yesterday afternoon and fished a few hundred yards of my favorite stretch of bay shore walking with the tide. Nothing but a couple bluefish bumps. I turned around and fished the same stretch back the way I came and landed 7 or 8 fish, most in the 15 to 16" range with a couple littler ones, and 2 bluefish.
Maybe the water was too still. When I started the bay was glassy smooth. When I turned around the wind started up from the ESE enough to put a 3 or 4" riffle up.

I guess everybody is home re-tiling their bathrooms or something. Or maybe just too tired from fishing all day to post.

How do you relate to the SOLUNAR tables? According to the one I was just looking at on the US Harbors site, Wednesday around sunset is one of the best fishing periods of the year.
Will you be out? What kind of effort will you make?

I don't bother with solunar tables... I just fish when I can, and base it on tides when I can.


Can't make it out Wednesday night, but I'm going to hit the surf Monday morning.

I got a tip for all of you getting your gulp tails nipped off by the blues, keep a few small strips of pork grind with you. When the tail gets nipped, leave the body on and add the pork, because it?s all about the flutter of the tail.
