been very successful during June, July, and
August trolling custom squid rigs, brined
mackerel bars, and rigged ballyhoo. As new
fall fish migrate in from offshore we will
drift, chum and place sewn or live baits at

lined bluefish for bait.
Both of the above techniques are used for Shark fishing. When anglers hook up they can fight the fish from a fixed transom rod holder or a custom fighting chair. If you would like more detail about our custom rigs or techniques please
