Default Re: Secondary Target Species ....

many years ago, I followed an albie recipe by John Geiger and wound up with something that I wouldn't give our dogs. It was actually "edible" in the sense that it would provide emergency sustenance and didn't make me physically sick.

I somewhat target a few species that are in season simultaneously. I'll tie on a BTJ, and put a tiny 3-4" soft plastic teaser on a light jighead 4 or 5' above it. I'll do some fast retrieves and pick up a blue, low and slower...catch a bass, slower and bumping bottom...fluke. I'm always thankful for all fish...intended and unintentional...that I catch. I threw a small diamond jig/red tube on 12 lb test on a hot August afternoon thinking I'd probably get skunked (but maybe a small blue). In a short time I caught 3 fluke and a half dozen smallmouth-sized sea robins...all unexpected...all fun. Reel fast...reel slow...ya never know...

Yes! Used to catch both simultaneously summers in L.I.'s back bays years ago. Both species were small fish I was catching on...Rebels (mostly)

They call them "squeteague" in RI. They are highly ciclicle and disappear, then come back then disappear again. I have seen at least four cycles in my lifetime and each time people blame their disappearance on commercial fishing, which ain't true.
