|The Kastmaster XL landed|
a few fish but the float and fly
far outfished metal.
|The wooden egg float/fly rig was the|
hot ticket for albies and accounted
for over 50 fish in one day. The fly
is a homemade blue Deceiver.
Without question the best producer was a wooden float with a Deceiver fly. The fly was a homemade chartreuse bodied Deceiver that had blue hackles for a tail. Our float/fly rig was outfishing most of the other boaters around us who were mostly using metal. We did also land a few fish on Kastmaster XL's reeled quickly along the surface. The float/fly combo was also fished with a very fast retrieve. If we threw it into breaking fish, a hit was almost a guarantee.
The albie fishing has attracted a ton of boaters to the oceanfront as the word is out and albie madness has set in. There are also lots of fishermen along the shoreline looking as well as catching in certain spots. Boaters, though, have a big advantage when it comes to finding these fish and staying with the breaking schools.
