Lighthouse Sportfishing Barnegat Bay Report 5/4/2017

Quick report here, my World Series of Birding Team, LBIF Ospreys, has been spending every available minute the last two weeks scouting birds for the Big Day, this Saturday. We are competing in the Bird Conservation Challenge – Level I Limited Geographic Area. Our team is staying in Ocean County and hope to make OC proud! You can follow me the day of the event on Twitter @LHSportfishing. Wish us luck! Oh, what does this have to do about fishing? OK, here it is…While scouting birds by boat today around the inlet I saw some terns getting excited so I ran over to get in on the action. I guess fishing trumps birding  My first cast, was my only cast, because after a couple twitches of a white BKD I got hammered hard. It took the better part of 10 minutes to land the beast (bluefish) and when weighed it pulled the scale down to 15.4 pounds. Be warned, this beast is still out there and might be looking to fight with you soon!

Screaming drags,
