Well last night i went out on a boat out of barnaget light thinking i was going to have some fun catching some good size blues. After an hour ride out to sea I started getting some hits as soon as i dropped my line in, but couldnt land anything using my size 5 bluefish hook. So after i switched to a size 2 high low rig i started pulling in alot of fish. The thing was, they were all under 2 lbs.[confused][confused] The pool winner weighted 1 lb 10 oz. Does anyone know why they are so small so far out? i went on the same boat maybe a month ago to the same place and we were getting 10 or 12 lb fish. [confused][confused][confused]

Late July into mid August...blues seem to take time off and spawn. As another poster mentioned, the small blues are the best to catch for eating. I used to troll umbrella rigs up and down the LBI coast and IBSP coastline in early September and load up on small blues. Sometimes 3 on a rig at once. Small ones were the tastiest.
