Good catches of Spot, Rockfish, Spanish Mackerel and Bluefish! On Tuesday, I fished with a friend and his son. The friend happens to also be a professional mate so that helped our success. We caught about 60 live Spot in no time. Before we could reach our targeted fishing grounds, we located diving birds and breaking fish. We caught our limit of Rockfish in short-order by live-lining the Spot. First-grader, Zach Jr., was in charge of craking in fish. With our rock limit in the box, we put the spining gear away and broke out the trolling rods. We caught 14 Spanish Mackerel, a dozen Bluefish and released several keeper-sized Rockfish all before 10:00 a.m.! Saturday was little tougher with boat traffic and finicky fish, but we ended up with 9 Rockfish in the 20-24 inch range and 8 bluefish.
The Spot won’t be around much longer, so if you want to try live baitfishing for Rock, book a trip now!
