Blue Plate Specail

  Summer is in full swing!  We just finished using up our fireworks stash from the forth, when Derek Jeter Hits number 3000,  We need more fireworks!  Oh, and the fishing is great too.  This morning Jan and I left the dock in hopes of slaying some porgies for dinner, however, we found a nasty bluefish attack!  Top water  Zoom Flukes and Jumping Minnows sealed the deal, and made for an unforgettable morning.  In total we landed 8 blues on light tackle in shallow water.  What a great day!


  1. I think I read a good recipe for bluefish over on A Dash of Salty blog, might be something worth trying out. Good time it sounds like.

  2. Sounds like you guys had a good time.

    It was nice to see Jeter get his 3000th hit with a home run. Even as a Red Sox fan, I always liked him and I think he is a class act.

  3. Derek Jeter is an asset to all of MLB.
    What he has accomplished few in baseball do.
    As a Red Sox fan I can say you deserve my sincere CONGRATULATION.

    Savage, spent some time near the salt today. Sail Fest in New London.... Great Time

  4. So lucky to be soooo close to the salt. Nice bluefish!

  5. Ed+Brk Trt, I saw a very young Jeter get a hit at my first ball game. Who knew it would go this far. The Arods and Mannys just are not really in it and alienate the fans.

    Brk Trt, New London has some good fishing. You should bring a fly rod next time.

    JGR, I don't know why people complain about blue fish. To be honest it is pretty good.

    Blake, I always say i want to be closer to that steel head fishing you guys have, and again your driftless area fishing video is great.

  6. Manny was an awesome hitter but a tool as a human being.

  7. Ed, I think Manny was one of the better hitters in MLB. The guy just had a poor attitude and work ethic.

  8. Just Manny being Manny..............anyway going to try and get out to Boston Harbor and do some fishing this weekend. Also, I got this from Smith & Wesson yesterday: http://goo.gl/4Kz90. Did you ever consider the Body Guard 38 when you were looking for a firearm?

  9. Ed, my brother has a bodygaurd .38. I have shot it sevral times, and. It is a good gun.
