When I was just getting into party boat fishing as a kid on Long Island, I heard of an exotic species called the false albacore which a few pros would try to catch by trolling Japanese feather jigs from the 10-knot party boats of the day on the way to bottom fishing grounds at this time of year.
This morning, we fished on the beach on bird life. We had some albies, bonito and blues in the morning. Once the tide changed, we lost the albies but boy oh boy did the blues bite! We SLAUGHTERED THE BLUES with most anglers onboard catching their limits and some! (but only keeping their limits) They ranged anywhere from 2-5 lbs. Ava 27s, both plain and tailed, worked the best.
