I got on the sand around 9:30 am this morning and the first thing I see are dolphins everywhere. They made their way north in a hurry and thankfully I did not see them again. Not long after, a school of small bluefish bust the surface and head straight for the beach just north of my location. I quickly tie on a gotcha and manage to catch a couple, keeping one for future bait.

The water was clear, but had a lot of grass. The blues surfaced many times in the next hour and a half, but the grass made it very difficult to catch them.

Around 11:00am the wind picked up and the blues disappeared. Nothing touched my bait rod, and I caught one blue on the heaver using cut spot. The crabs were chewing at the spot also. Packed up around 12:00pm.

Good flounder bait! I'll even throw it out on my heaver for drum, or anything else that will bite it. :eusa_pray:

Maybe that's why I was the only one fishing there today!! When I left there was one person just setting up at the north end.

THANX FOR THE INVITE BRO - I went to the tackle shop at 6 and restocked some stuff and then went to the rail and tagged flounder- tag & release 14 fish,added to my 400 + list for the year so far.

Bluefish- If I am using cutbait, there is no better cut bait than the oily bluefish.....filet it,strip it and cover in Kosher salt, put in fridge ( do not freeze ) it will last several weeks.
