Bushido on the Rocks Sunrise Fishing on an Inlet Jetty A Bushido Shad rigged on a leadhead jig was deadly for stripers prowling among the rocks. The “meaty” Bushido tail created a thump that the stripers couldn’t resist. I swear the bluefish are working for tackle companies. Not only do they destroy soft plastics, they almost always know where to stop biting – just short of the hook. They must have inside information. A switch to a pink Bushido Shad was fine with the stripers. They came one after another until it was about time for me to quit. I found redemption with the last fish of the morning. This bluefish was overzealous with his bite. He paid the price with a quick visit to the rocks before being released.
