Started out on the tuna grounds, very slow to start, decided to make a run and worked out great for the crew. Landed a dozen mahi to 15lbs, then landed tiles to 25lbs, had the choice to go back for tuna or deep drop for swords, guys wanted some sword steaks, made a drop 15 minutes later we were tight and landed a nice 200lb sword!
Posted on October 21, 2020 Joe Julian was a Shore legend If a book is ever written about the early days of fishing along the northern N. J. Shore, Joe Julian will surely be among the leading characters, The owner of Julian s Tackle in Atlantic Highlands passed away last week at 94. Joe, who also had a big ice business across the road, popularized his Montauk bunker spoons which feature a single large Siwash hook that was a big improvement over the huge built-in hook on standard bunker spoons which required the addition of a large treble hook to be effective but damaged a lot of stripers and blues that were to be released.
Had first timer with the Toy Dave with buddies Brendan, SteveX2, Chris and Rich, had a slow pick on the tuna going 3-6 on nice size yellows and first bluefin of the fall. Ended the day on half a dozen nice size mahi, good guys to have onboard today.
