Gators

Adrenalin.

The rush from hooking into a Bluefish 30 inches or bigger is an adrenalin rush. Especially fishing non blitzing conditions when out of no where a Gator slams a plug and the drag is coming off the real and the rod is bent big time. Mayhem.

3 of 7 caught on town beach

3 of 7 caught on town beach, 2014, These were fun, caught on looong casts. Had to work for them. No blitz, just long casts and a possible hook up on the first 20 yards of the retrieve. Found them and was all alone. Green Ava worked. Red tailed Ava ignored.

I like the Dookster a lot. Bass and Blues like it too, they really crash the plug

Very memorable Gator. Bayside, calm water, Danny swimming in close to shore and this Gator just smashes the plug. Water everywhere, the place was destroyed. Drag screaming. One of the best fish I have caught, mean fish
