• Dealing with Those Bluefish

”Another difference is that bluefish can and often will jump when hooked. Don’t panic at this event, it adds a lot of excitement to playing a bluefish.

”Some anglers will drop their rod (called bowing) at the jump but unless you’re fly fishing or using a light line test, just hold on during the aerial show.

”The good thing about being a striper angler fishing for bluefish is that your rods and reels, unless they are ultra-light, will work but expect a lengthy battle.

”Hey, that’s a big part of the bluefishing fun.”
