yes Rod, they were scholling up like that at Bluefish Point on Saturday. There were around 5 of us in yaks chasing the school around and casting various lures in amongst the feeding frenzy but surprisingly they weren't hitting any of the metal lures. I wsa using a 7gram maniac lure and I also downsized to a searock as I thought that the size of the fisrt lure may have been too big.
There were also half a dozen stinkboats in amongst the action as well, including one guy flycasting...he wasn't getting anything that I saw
Dan-Hobie Fisherman got one on his first cast with a soft plastic, so that was obviously the way to go. I saw 2 guys in the stinkboats hookup as well, but considering the size of the school and the number of guys throwing lures into it, the hookup rate was very low...
Next time I'll know to try a soft platic rather than perservering with the metal slug. D'OH!
