I've actually been targeting 5lb bluefish here all summer. I've taken all my sons friends, my wife and anyone else who's interested in non stop, drag screaming fun. We've caught them on fly but i'm a topwater junky.

Scott....Nice video and they really grow them big up there!!

Bunkers = Pogies = Atlantic Menhaden.....correct??

Capt. Rich....That sized bluefish must be fun on the longrod!!

They are terrific fighters and YES, their teeth are really sharp...I "lipped" the first one that I caught in 1979....bad move!!

Nice video and I'll tell ya, striped bass love them too! I had a few days like that on the RI shore line when the sun was just right, the water clear and surf small and the bait were right around your ankles cuz any further off shore was suicide. What really surprised me, though, was how many bluefish were moving along the shoreline. Only a small percentage of what was out there were feeding aggressively at any given moment. That was a real eye opener! My best on the fly rod was 12 lbs and in those days I was the only driving around with a fly rod hanging off the truck! The rest of the crew thought I was a little nuts :) Gawd, that was fun times!
