Andy Ead - Blues and Fluke trip

I had return client Andy Ead of Watchung, NJ, his wife Christine and their 11-yr old son Jaeden on a 4hr bay charter.  First, we hit the bluefish which were destroying spearing - the blues had the spearing pinned and were crashing and busting all over the surface.  Jaeden’s primo casts had him with the hot-hand with the bluefish early.  After catching a bunch of 2-5lb blues, we moved back to some areas that have recently been producing fish in the keeper range.  Among a lot of shorts, Andy had the hot hand landing 2 nice keepers (18.5, 19) and lost a much bigger fish as it made a quick dive after seeing the boat - there is definitely a 1oz. S&S BigEye bucktail hanging out of it’s mouth.  The trio had a great time and took home some nice fluke and cocktail blue fillets.  Looking forward to seeing the Ead's next season - got to catch the one that got away!
