We took a party of 5 out off the south shore of Staten Island looking for bluefish. We left the the dock at 6am.
Dropped hook at 6:30am, started to chum, and first fish was on board by 6:45am. Good fishing throughout the morning. We got medium to large bluefish, up to 12.5 pounds.
Near-constant action through the day. Pulled our anchor as the last fish came aboard.
Super successful day. Smiles all around. Every left with a bag full of filets and enough to freeze.
