• Fishing for Stripers When the Bluefish Are Around

”I grabbed the leader intending to pull enough of the fish out of the water to lock the jaws of a Boga Grip onto its lower lip, but with an acrobatic swish of its forked tail, the bluefish was able to get those nasty teeth around the 30-pound test leader, severing it with the ease of a trained surgeon.

”We watched with growing sadness as dinner disappeared into the dark waters.”
