5/3 – We had Ryan S’s group out for the first time – these guys have been in our area for work and wanted to try offshore cod fishing – but given that bluefishing busted wide open the day before, we asked them if they would rather try that instead. They were game. We had blues right out in front of our inlet on jigs, but the boat traffic drove them down. Switching over to Stretch 25 plugs, we had no problem keeping the rods bent with blues from 5 to 12 pounds. After running around at couple of areas, we found the blues more stacked up and got back on them with jigs until the guys’ arms were sore.
