I can't wait for spring stripers and blues and so much fun in the surf and from the jetties. My personal best bluefish was 19 pounds and I honestly believe I have broken the 20 pound mark but didn't weigh them so I can't say for sure. I love catching those yellow eyed demons, their strength is amazing as is everything about them. I was fishing on a party boat last spring out of Belmar and caught a 14 pounder, not my biggest by far but it was enough to win me a 300 dollar pool. That was my biggest pool win ever.
