I was wondering how big are the bluefish that you spear up there? I live on the northern gulf coast, a big blue around here is 8lbs or so. I got one last year that was 14lbs, thats the largest that I have ever seen, but I heard stories that the ones off of hatteras get much larger. Nobody targets them around here (except me). I like to spear sheepshead, blues and amberjack in the winter, I have the rigs to myself mostly, but it never really gets too cold to dive around here.

Here in NJ some one will get one road and reel around 20 pounds once in a while. I tried to spear them yesterday.... which leads my to my promised report.
I wish I could say I stuck some fish this weekend but it just didn't happen. Left the dock around 6:45 Sat morning and heard on the radio right away there were birds on big blue fish just out of the inlet. Took us about 10 minutes to get there and we were right in them. We couldn't get in the water because there were too many boats running around on the fish. After an hour or two of banging them with the rod and reel up to 10 pounds a cool thing started to happen. Groups of 2 to 10 fish started following the hooked fish to the side of the boat. Blues and other fish will do this as most of you probably already know. At this point there weren't many boats around so I got my gear on as quick as I could and slipped over the side, thinking I could pick one off when he followed his buddy to the boat. Of course once I got in the water for some reason we had no more followers. Tried for about an hour then gave up and got out of the wetsuit. Don't you know as soon as I was dressed we drove back to the fish and for an hour every one we hooked had a bunch more swim to the boat with it???? That was frustrating. That every happen to anyone? Oh well we still had a great day.

I got this one on a rig south of dauphin island Alabama, I was at 50ft and at the end of my breath hold, actually I mistook him for an almaco jack. He's 1lb smaller than the state rod and reel record. This is about as big as they get in the gulf, but on some rigs you can dive down to 30ft and be surrounded by a bluefish "tornado" containing hundreds of fish. I have dove into these and used up my breathhold trying to decide wich one to shoot and returned to the surface never pulling the trigger
