The Blues are destorying my umbrella rigs :nono: so I want to try some live lining until they clear out.

Does anyone know of a good place out of Deale catch some spot and live line.



Thanks in Advance,
Dave

Right out front in Herring Bay and off Holland Point should still hold spot. Fishbites and blood worms on small j hooks. If you're like catching blues trolling you can always drag spoon umbrellas - commie proof and very productive. Good luck - Andy

Thanks for the info. Herring Bay right there that's good news.

On the Blues I had real good luck with small fake red eels (surgical tube) but no stripers.

Probably most the time I was only trolling around with half of the umbrella rig.


Thanks for the info.

Dave,

Make up a couple umbrella rigs with strike king teasers (lizards, worms, etc.) and run spoons off them. They work just as good as shad/eels and they won't get bitten in half. I've used mine on the last five trips and haven't lost any tails....................also caught a few nice rock on them as well. Good Luck

Capt. Hank DeVito on the "Afternoon Delight" from Breezy Point showed me a cool trick for umbrella rigs and Bluefish.He uses small rubber squid about 4 inches long.They are very tough and the Blues can not chew the up.Use a small spoon as the hook lure and it is Blue proof :thumbup:.

Keeping the speed at 3 knots helps also.Blues seem to prefer a faster troll then Rock plus going slower keeps the rig deeper.Often Blues feed near the surface.

spot and perch are thick along drop-off north of the green can outside of Holland point right now. I was there today loading up on perch. Blues were quite impolite. Rock, if any, were hanging low, watching and waiting. I suspect the nearly fully moon filled them up at night. That's my excuse, and I'm sticking to it.

I second the green can off of Holland Point. I fished there Sunday and loaded up on spot. I even had two Rockfish, spot doubles. The rock were about 10-12 inches.
