Caught on the James Joseph II out of Huntington today by me. I got it on one of my handtied teasers. Here is the short tale. I opened a pepsi and drank it with one hand and had my rod in the other. Then I get a slam and I thought to myself, "URG a Bluefish". I held the rod with one hand knelt down really quick and put my Pepsi on the bench and as I reeled up with my ultra light spinning rod with drag coming out I got this nice 23" Fluke. My first keeper of the season. It was taken on a Olive and White hand tied teaser with a spearing on the hook. Thank you for the chance to be the angler of the month!

Post  Large John on 5/17/2011, 9:28 pm

Thanks guys If I ever get the photos unloaded from my phone Ill throw them up here for ya....but here's the story...

Left home in PA on Wed the 11th at 7pm arriving in SSP at around 1030pm. Finally got out on the sand at aboount 11. Cast one rod out and before the second bait hit the water the current and WEEDS had the first one on the beach. Tried again with a shorter cast...same result.
Packed up and drove to the inlet. Threw bucktails and lures for another hour and a half nada.
Packed up and moved off the beach to nap.
Got up at 445 and hit the inlet.
Cocktail Blues were in order for several hours...two hours of every other cast hook ups and a steady pick other wise until about 1030-1100. Started BSing with some folks til about noon before I moved up the beach.
Saw some Gannets diving on Bunker just outside the bar and pulled in. Threw a chunk way out and a snot ball in close.....instant weed ball on the way out chunk that carried into the shorter cast. Untangled the mess and flipped the chunk back out in the trough.
Walked back to the truck to get my sunglasses and maybe a bite to eat........
As I am opening my sunglass case I see thru the window the big rod is doubled over and the drag is screaming...I ran out and picked up the line didnt even pause when i came tight to the fish ....just kept pulling til it was out over the far bar and inthe strong current.
The fish ran south almost to the next walkover before it stopped. Now the game was on gaining a little on every incomming wave and trying to keep it to the next one.
Finally got it over the bar and back in close. Several minutes later I finally saw it in the wash....knew it was big when i hooked up but DAMN...... wow wow
Weeds jamed up my eyelet on the shock knot kept me from locking down on it so when the next wave went out the fish hit the sand and I grabbed ahold.
As soon as I picked up the fish I thought forsure 50. I was spent but somehow managed to carry the monster to my truck...taped at 49inches and a friend stopped by with his boga at 48lbs.
Lost a little in drying til I hit a scale off the beach. 47.25lbs personal best by 12 plus lbs
I was spent but managed to get a picture off to my wife and a few friends.......I did finally manage to get two rods back out. This time both with bunker and in close....neither was in for 5 minutes before one wnet down again...as I picked that up the other went off too.
Thank god a friend was coming up and grabbed that one. A 14lber and 10lber came out of those two. A steady pick prevailed til the tide was in....I never did get my glasses or my lunch but I trade them anytime for a fish like that cheers
