Bluefish action in southwest Florida, USA.

Posted on June 12th, 2013

[nggallery id=877]Tony Brecknock and I had another fun but challenging day searching for trophy Florida bluefish footage.  We started early, but the tides were low and the air temperature really got hot. We fished hard for 3-hrs. waiting for the tide to start flooding.  By 11:00am the tide had changed and the bluefish moved into over the reef we were fishing to do some heavy feeding.  Tony also landed a surprise lizard fish.

We fished  Rapala Shift rods and theRapala  Magnum Baha saltwate rod matched with with the Rapala spinning reel and loaded with Sufix 10 lb., 832 braid & 20 lb. Sufix fluorocarbon leader. We used our  Minn Kota Riptide electric and Minn Kota Talon anchoring system to locate and than hold where the bluefish were feeding.  The top producing lures were the Blue Fox series of casting spoons.

Bluefish feed in schools and when they move in it’s fast and furious action while it lasts, and than they move on.  Tomorrow if early morning winds are low, we are planning on fishing some deeper reefs in the Gulf of Mexico for a variety of bottom fish.
