Topwater Fishing for Gator Bluefish (with super slow-motion)

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Big bluefish slamming topwater plugs in NJ. Video by Tom Lynch. Veteran anglers Bob McGinley, Eric Hoff and Bill fished Ron Muccie (Indestructable PVC) and Lex Lure pencil poppers with great success. Roberts Rangers, Big Ed’s and other assorted topwater plugs also scored big. All hooks were barbless. All fish were released. Video features high-frame-rate slow motion imagery.

I have a Rapala Husky Jerk HJ-10, Fishing hooks with barbs just so the the bunker doesn’t fall off while i cast it. i have a kastmaster with a tube tail in green. i have 50 lb braided fishing line. should i need any other things?

surffishingvideos says:

bunker or mullet at night for bait. heavy mono leader (80lb), no real need for wire. Blues will hit swimming plugs at night, such as Bombers and SP minnows. I suggest taking the trebles off, replacing with single tail hooks and crushing your barbs. Using barbless single hooks make unhooking a lot easier and safer for you and the fish. If there are stripers around, leave a barbless treble or single hook on the belly.

GiulioM16 says:

topwater fantastic, especially the white! but sells them at home or are do it yourself? in Italy are on the market?

Stripersor Bust says:

Two questions. First, how do you get all the way out there without your reel getting submerged? Or is it shallow water all the way? And two, what season is best for bluefish? The websites and regulations pages say all year but what months do you actually catch the big bluefish?

You should try doing the same with circle hooks…….. seriously it works give the fish some slack the second you the fins and THEN when the fish bites you pull. I love circle hooks… lolzorz
