Details

A steel blue colored fish with a large mouth, forked tail and prominent teeth.

How to Catch:

Bluefish can be caught in the inlets, surf and withing 10 miles of shore in a boat. When fishing inlets, using spoons and plugs are a good bet. When fishing surf, use a good 10 ft surf rod with 30 lbs braid and a 3 - 4 oz spoon. The heavy spoon will make for a long cast. When fishing offshore trolling spoons will put plenty in your boat but when they are in a frenzy a topwater can be lots of fun. They do have sharp teeth, when using spoons and plugs you can get away with mono but mainly use wire.
