Bluefish aren't everywhere, but there are still opportunities to get into hot fishing, such as I had in the Hudson River last week when Chick Many handled his Ty Man and took care of the releases as I caught 24 blues in less than an hour on a big pencil popper before a short striper beat them to it. There have been a few stripers plus big blues in Point Pleasant Canal for those fishing jigs or live eels (which Castaways has in stock) at night.

October 4th, 2017 Stripers Blues Charters Today, we split our day amongst the blues and porgies. With Miss Belmar s 3 engines and a total of 2,100 horsepower, she is the first boat to the fishing grounds every day and we guarantee it.
The surf was rough this morning, but Vinny D'Anton of Wall released a 24-inch striper that hit a Chug Bug at Belmar, and Joe Melillo at Castaways Tackle in Point Pleasant reported a few bass are being caught in the local surf on metal. The Seaside Park tackle shops are reporting small blues in the surf, with a few bass among them.
