Default Re: OK Guys... What's your favorite target species?

The bluefish as to be one of the toughest, meanest, orneriest, fish that swims.
They will gorge themselves, puke it up, then gorge again.
It's almost as if they kill for fun.
If you hook a big chopper, it's a see-saw battle with a most worthy opponent
Landing a bluefish can be a challenge. They have razor sharp teeth and can see out of the water as well as in.
They stare at you with those evil yellow eyes and you can just tell that they're itchin' to rip your face off
Sound like fun ?
It is.

Rip Tide,

I love holding them by the gill plate and feeling their mouth close down on your hand. The jaw pressure is truely amazing. I love schools mixed with stripers and blues. Keeps you on your toes.
