Our first blackfish trip was a success! We started out the day with a slow pick of blues waiting for the hard current to ease off a bit. We then moved to the shallow water to try for some tog. Despite the 70 degree water temp, we did manage 8 nice keepers and a bunch of shorts to 5 lbs!

As we were making our move to another tog drop a huge school of bluefish appeared out of now where. The blues were breaking all over the surface, birds everywhere. We switched back over to the jigs and proceeded to massacre the blues and then some.

After everyone had their fill, we tried one drop in deeper water on the way home. No blacks, but we did manage some big sea bass and a few scup. Great day on the water!
