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.
