You guys 3 bluefish limit now too?Took 81 years old brother Joe and 70 years old friend Dave fishing in Manasquan Inlet this evening during a cold, sunny nor’easter on the incoming tide. We caught 12 bluefish. Not bad for 3 old guys. I didn’t see anyone catch a fish. I caught, tagged and released an 18” bluefish on a spoon soon after I started fishing. Then I didn’t get a hit for nearly 2 hours. After the incoming current got swift, I caught, tagged and released a bluefish double on an Ava A-17 and brother John’s homemade synthetic buck tail teaser. Soon after that I caught, tagged and released my first ever bluefish triple with 2 teasers and a plain hook Ava A-17. Catching my bluefish limit on one cast was awesome . Then a bluefish bit off my teaser. After that, a bluefish bit off my Ava. Just before I left, I caught, tagged and released my seventh and final bluefish for the day. Caught 32 fish: 25 bluefish, 5 hickory shad, a fluke and a kingfish in 12 trips to the inlet this year. Tagged 27 fish: 25 bluefish, a fluke and a kingfish. None were recaptured yet.

Quite the assortment you have there!Went for a little while Sat and Sun afternoon to run my boat some after working on it and because the wind actually somewhat cooperated. First cast with a senko Sat this dude bit and got its teeth tangled in the line. Redeemed myself a little later with about a 3½ pounder.
