Made the trip from Upstate to LI for Memorial Day. Fished on Friday 5/22 from 6:30 AM to 10:00 AM at a GSB beach on the south shore. Walked all the way in while most other fishermen drove their beach buggies. Caught my first bluefish of the year on my new rod (2-piece used Lamiglas). Also first ever on a swim shad. Never caught a blue this large and could not believe the power it had. Wonderful experience.

Other fishermen were great. Two let each of my two sons reel a bluefish in. They loved it and I appreciated the friendliness of all the other fishermen. I read lots of stories about spot burning, undersize fish takers, etc. but my experiences have been nothing but great.

My first of 2015

Thanks guys for the replies. Yes, they are hooked. We went back on Sunday in the afternoon but there were no blues around (only in the AM). We lost 4 lures so it was a good lesson for them that not everything in fishing comes easy.

We will be back again on July 4th weekend to see if we can catch something else (with stripes, we hope Smile otherwise, there are always fluke and porgies to catch.


Stripers are like carp, except edible !!
