Made a right out of the Inlet while it was still dark. Ran along the beach looking for peanut bunker. Just south of Bayhead we were pleasantly surprised (as I'm sure the rest of the fleet was) we came across multiple pods of bunker. Once we had a little day light we could see the bunker were being harassed to the point that the were cart wheeling and jumping out of the water.we quickly replaced our shads with snag hooks and proceeded to snag and live line. I immediately had a good run off and after a minute or so in the fight I was bitten off. It soon became evident that there were some bluefish in the mix. The next run off yielded our first bass of the day. I had an additional 4 bites, losing all 4 (2 to bite offs and 2 to half eaten bunker-the last of which even missed the stinger hook I added). With the building fleet and higher sun, the pods eventually broke up but not before we added a bluefish. Once they did we put out a pair of bunker spoons and a shot gun rod with a Mojo. The Mojo wasn't in for two minutes before it yielded another bluefish. 20 more minutes on the troll was non productive. We moved south and further offshore on some intel of a troll bite. We eventually added another bluefish on a green tube rig but the bite was slow. Once again we made a move, this time slightly inshore but not tight to the beach. We deployed a pair of Maja #4 spoons and got into a good bite. At first it was all bass then a few bluefish before a few more bass. Made a few stops tight to beach n the ride home where we fasted shads but we couldn't find any more fish. We ended the day with a boat limit of 'unders' to 40"s and 10 bluefish.
