    Kure it is!!! Any tips on hooking into a nice chopper blue like that? Rig, bait, location on the pier? Mackerel maybe a little out of my skill level.

    Live or Cut bait on the bottom near the break. Fished on something like a blue fish rig with wire and a big hook like 5/0 thru 7/0 hooks. I would fish close to the break on the incoming tide and move out some for the falling. If you see some being caught then fish in that area. My favorite baits for Chopper Blues in order or preference are Blue Fish, Spot, Mullet, Sea Mullet. Good Luck

    i've seen that kure beach only allows 1 rod and reel, if you pay another 5 bucks are you allowed a second pole or are they really strict about that? thanks

    I go out there quite often and unless you pay the money to kingfish 3 rods, they STRICTLY only allow one rod, i've tried payin the extra $ for another rod to no avail... Thats really the reason i go to cb now alot more often... good luck should be a great weekend of fishin Let the moon be with us....

    also could be (no disrespect intended) that you're just a younger guy and they didn't wanna harass you, who knows
