Benchmark Sportfishing, Bust on the Bass, Hammer on the Blues!

Benchmark Sportfishing - 10/19/2011

On Tuesday, Benchmark Sportfishing, hosted repeat offender Jonathon S. and the boys for a mid-day trip! Last time out was in August and with fluking slow in the south wind, we went sea-bassing. Coming back this time, Jon was looking for a better fighting target.

We set rigs out on SB Rocks, and pulled tubes, shads, single tubes, and stretches, trying to convince a Bass to bite mid-day. Only finding small bluefish feeding on clouds of rain-fish topwater, and catching a couple. We moved out to the mud and as soon as we came tight on the anchor had all the bluefish action the boys could handle. 1, 2, and 3 fish on at a time until everyone’s arms were sore, and after keeping 27 up to 10lbs and releasing just as many up to 15lbs, everyone had their fill!

Ended the day with not a Bass bite, which we know is tough Mid-day to begin with, but in the end had a great time and some happy boys!

Out again Friday, Stay tuned!
