Chris is spot on. Or these too:uhuh: I just finished this batch of Bling for the fall. We did good on them last year till we lost all the ones I made.

Based on last years reports it sounds like mid-late September is that about right? Lets do this!

damn! they are nice. What are the materials?

Hey Jim. They are stainless, thru wired with lead inside. Built just like a wooden lure. I then put a coat of epoxy and pile on the glitter. The next day I put another coat of epoxy. I use system 3 clear coat as it hardens nice and hard. The little ones are new this year. They weigh 1/2 oz and the next size weights 3/4 oz and I got another larger that goes 1 oz. All plenty heavy for casting on 20 lb braid. I found that the albies really like the sparkles last year.

Mr. Sandman
09-11-2013, 07:05 AM
Wow..stainless with lead and epoxy??? and thru wired? That is a lot of work for a jig. They look nice though!

I pour mine from tin and they work great. But I just buff them with a wire brush and they look good for several seasons.When they get real tired I just recycle them and repour.

ProfessorM
09-12-2013, 05:59 PM
Yeah a lot of work but I fit in the different operations thru out the year and I don't make 100's. Pretty much just for me and a few friends.

Glad I got one via the MacoJoe auction! Hope I get to use it this year? Next year? When ever?

One of the lures we use is a simple diamond jig. Those 3 pack little ones at Bennys, West Marine. They're like a half and oz. We scored 23 bonito this summer with these over 3 days on vacation.

If the togging weren't so good I would be bummed.

Some closer but still a mile or so and not real cooperative

sounds like the may be showing based on the other thread, should we plan something? If Albies are not around, we can always just scramble to another spot and look for black sea bass!
thinking next week....

Lots of yaks out there today. I did not fish and fish are not spread everywhere but should be by next week which will give you some breathing room. I'll see if I can make it work. If I can't I can give you some intel at least. You geared up for Albies?

Ok so how do you actually find the albies, is this all just chasing birds and bait around or can you set up in a location, such as an inlet and blind cast for them?

Probably passed right by you today Buzz. We found them along the Elizabeth Islands today with numbskull. Not tons but here and there as we bass fished. If I can get out in tin boat I may give it a go on Tuesday morn before I go to work. . I will look for you guys out there. I'll be putting in at East Bay.

as Far as set up I use 20lb braid with a 20lb fluro tied with a slim beauty knot. I use a stradic 5000. I tie direct to lure. I like small metal, my own, deadly dicks, maria lures, small crippled herrings. I luv 4 inch white sluggos if you are getting close to them. Better than metal as they stay in the strike zone longer. Most exhilarating, aggravating, fishing I know of.

Hey Chris I won't be going tomorrow. I am shooting for Wed. Good luck. Get on the water early.

ProfessorM
09-23-2013, 07:39 PM
yeah next week, sorry, cant' do tomorrow either!

probably won't be going on Friday as I forgot I have a concert to go to on Fri. If you guys still intend to go, I would, I will be taking Wed. off and trying so I can give you some intel. The access is real simple and I am sure you will have yak company out there too. P.

JohnnySaxatilis

I was told they like feeding into the wind... any truth to this? Makes sense

ProfessorM
09-25-2013, 03:47 PM
nope. I actually prefer this wind as it allows me to get out in my 14' tin boat. Southerlies make it tough for me.

They were in pretty close today. I had 5 fish on but only was able to get my hands on 2. I will say this they were the largest albies I have ever caught. One was 29" long and took my around 10 minutes to get in. All this action took place in about a 45 min. window, around 9:30. After that I found many pods and had lots of really good chances but no luck till 2 when I left. I covered a lot of ground for a tin boat. I did not see many fish caught in the whole area I fished today, actually didn't see one but I am sure someone in the area got at least one. I was all my my lonesome when I caught the fish I got. Lots of guys out there and I did not catch anything when fishing amongst the boats. I ran into Niko and fish4striper and they had come from the west and said they had a decent morning. I did see a lot of the larger boats head that way around 8:30 and never come back so I assume it was better in that direction. All were caught on a 4" white sluggo's.

To the kayak guys thinking of going Friday, I think it is worthwhile. Plenty there just got to hope they will eat your offering. They were in close and probably 10 to 15 kayak's out there so plenty of company. I'd get out there early. Good luck if you go. Here is what they are eating.

Falmouth to Quicks,,,, terrible day! No sooner gets out and got hit with some stomach bug,,, chit ten in 5gal bucket all morning, chills swets,,,,, couldn't function at all. Last night was hell!

I was in the fray today took a lil while but finally found em, only managed one blind casting, and had 3 or 4 good shots at fish. Paul does your tin boat have a little pole stand on the back? I didnt wanna bother anyone so I just kept to myself. I only saw one other guy hookup but he lost it after a good 5 min fight

No J. Just some nit wit standing which may resemble a pole. Says deep fisherman on side ugly beige yellowish color.

Good going. What time did the catch take place? Just wondering.

Picked up this 28lb boner yesterday morning while bouncing a 2oz bucktail on the bottom, milking a drift in 45' - keeping it on the bottom looking for miniature Halibut.



...just when you think you have it all figured out. I can't wait for the enlightenment. :uhuh:
