Summary

Great morning today! We had out Francis, Gus, MaryJane and Randy for a light tackle bluefish trip. Before the recent winds the south side had been producing nicely on the flats from Wapuoit to Cotuit. Pulling GetTight my 23 footer out of its slip in Winthrop we trailered down to Falmouth harbor. I met the crew at 0700 and started our trip running east. We started hitting outflows along the way to Cotuit. Each outflow produced bluefish but just larger single fish not packs, 7-10lb fish. Mostly keying in on Hogy epoxy jigs in Green and Pink. Upon arrival at Cotuit we started working the surf line just outside of casting range of some surf fisherman. After several drifts with no luck I decided to move to the outside of the flats. We started working the color changes between sand bottom and eelgrass in 5-6 feet. We get honed in right away, fish started to respond to poppers. They looked to be drawn in be the noise often from a distance. Most were 4-6lb fish in packs of 3-6 fish. We continued for about two hours with constant action. Rebel Jumping minnows were the lure of choice. Around 1100 we called it quits and decided to grab lunch at the lobster trap. Several fish were kept for bluefish ceviche. Another great day on the water. Although the fish seemed to be very scattered we ground out a good morning.
