Hopped on the ferry this past weekend over to Ocracoke Island to see if I could find myself some fish. Always have done pretty well out there. Got running a little bit late due to a ferry route taken out of the schedule, and didn't really get fishing untill nearly noon. I was hoping to get into some redfish, but they weren't hanging around too much, but it didn't take long to hook-up with a nice bluefish. Got him up in the surf and he bit off my 45lb. mono leader. Not thinking, just wanting to fish, I picked up my other rod with 60lb. leader and had the same result, so being a genius(lol) I tied some wire up. Next cast struggled one in that was right at 30". Managed to get two more in, one at 31" and the other 32". Had one hooking in the jaw and he shook it out. What a blast! This was my first time catching any blues over 1 1/2lbs., and man can they fight!!! Oddly enough, I caught them on cut shad, that I had saved up for catfishing! I'll have some pictures up here soon.
