Details:I had the dog with me so I started off walking in through the trails west of Bride Brook. It is a nice walk; I had never been through there before. Once over the railroad tracks I was surprised to see how busy it was. People were on the beach, at the pavillion, and on the jetty. I skirted everybody and kept west; I gained the water by the high ground that extends to a small point that makes up the eastern edge of the inlet to Four Mile River. It was high tide (I missed my target time by 1hr) and I'm guessing I was fishing in around 10 feet of water over sand with some reef in spots. I began with a mackerel-patterned popper and on my second cast caught a Bluefish moments after a school of baitfish erupted from underneath the popper. It would be the only adult Bluefish caught for the day. After a while with no action I switched to a blue/silver Castmaster with a short bucktail. After a few casts I was into some snapper Bluefish and even got to witness some blitzing as the small Blue were chasing fish onto the rocks (this was whipping my dog into a frenzy!). The fishing slowed as the water left. I didn't see any boats having luck, but the jetty across from me was producing more snapper Blues and one angler at the end was having a good day for Porgies as far as I could tell.
