While there were plenty of blues at the beach today, it was nothing like this video. I'll post a report tomorrow.

Great motivation for the upcoming weeks!

Steelhead you say? Never heard of 'em.

While it's rare, at least in my experience, to see a blitz like this, when you do....it will haunt your dreams.

The force of nature.

Insane. Looks like that boat wanted in on some of the action!

No doubt. Often it's the other way around - the beach guys watch as a blitz comes off too far out to cast and boats slay 'em. It appears to be low tide and the boater would be wise to keep his distance, esp if the tide is still going out. I've seen more than one fisherman run his boat aground trying to get too close to the shoreline.
There's also something of an unwritten rule that when fish crash the beach they belong to the beach fishermen. While folks in NJ are a bit more laid back, out at Montauk surf fishermen will brush back boaters by casting big plugs with treble hooks at 'em combined with a barrage of creative language delivered with a Brooklyn accent. Combat fishing.

It's commonplace to see these types of blitzes within 3 miles of shore all fall long, but I have never seen one against the beach. We fish via boat over striper blitzes and combination bluefish and striper blitzes like this throughout late October and November with spinning and casting gear. A few guys use fly rods, but getting close enough for a fly rodder in a timely manner and not ruining the fishing for all of the other boats can be problematic for a number of reasons.

Not unless you have a good caster on the boat Mike
