Looks like a 30 inch fish to me and possibly a 40" depending on the length of that rods butt, but I'm not disputing him. Good for you that you're schedule is open enuff to fish 5 days a week some people have to work more than that but good for you. Also good for you for catching more fish than everyone else, someone should give you a trophy.

Pomatomus salta you must just be jelious of the fish kracka has been catching. There are pics on this same thread of what appears to be a bluefish pushing 40". What does he have to prove to you? I don't know either one of you but clearly I can see who the fisherman is and I can also see who the asshole is. And honestly if you were as good at fishing as you were at being a internet tough guy and running your mouth there might not be any fish left

WOW, did this thread explode. :popcorn: Yikes! :eek:

I personally have fished with Kracka. He don't Bullshit on #'s. Most of those choppers were caught up in Jersey.

Pomatomus salta, It happens somewhere in the Delmarva area this time of year. You might have to travel sometimes. But you know that. This year it is close. I hope they show up around Kent Island for the guys. They use to.

Biggest reason there are very few chopper blues in the bay, is that the gulf stream runs much weaker and has much warmer and fresher water from melting ice up north.

I don't discus global warming so don't go there. I admit that I don't know enough to pontificate on the subject.

Couple that with nothing for them to eat (menhaden) and we catch 10 inch snappers in August instead of 12# slammers in June.

Blues travel a long way and use ocean currents to help migrate. Gulf stream no longer pushes them up the bay.

The reason for fewer bait-fish has more to do with habitat than over-harvesting.

Lol I didn't miss on shit, they were even thicker then.
You and all the families, who the hell still wants 100-150lbs of blues every week? If they keep showing up like this the bluefish stock will crash just like the Striper stock did from all the big fish being kept.
