Fishing the rough surf for blues

 

mahi, black sea bass, hotdog, wreck fishing,

David Lecates …. Sea bass caught on top of a wreck bout 30 miles out and the mahi trolling near the hotdog

The past few days the surf has been a bit angry, bust mostly on the southern beaches.  We fished 3Rs yesterday the froth in the surf looked like a double latte with cheese.  The waves were heavy and came in fast.  We still managed to catch bluefish despite the conditions.  Casting was a chore with small metals so I upgraded to my surf rod and a four ounce deadly dick.  That was still hard to cast in the surf and the retrieve was sketchy at best with the fast current.  The tide was incoming in the late morning, we did best on mullet rigs and top and bottom rigs with cut mullet for little blue fish.  They have been either real small or in the fourteen inch range.  Not bad for eating size but still a tad too small.  It was still a great day in the surf.  We decided to head to the point in Cape Henlopen after fighting the wind and waves.   We dropped by the inlet and it was was rough with lots of birds working the end of the north wall.   Read more ›
