You can add some slammer blues to the list of big boys hitting the beach. Blue fish in the 10 lb plus range were mixed in with the bass chasing those schools of bunker yesterday. The majority of action has been on bunker and the snag and drop method is still your best bet when…

A nice body of good size bass moved in along our beaches yesterday, they were hot on the trail of a school of full size bunker and gave shore bound anglers a shot at what boat fisherman take for granted. Big popping plugs and swimmers took their share of fish but the number one method by…
