    Default Sea View Pier 5-1-2011

    Today I fished the Sea View pier from 7AM until 7:30PM and the chopper blues were biting. When I got to the pier they have already caught three chopper blues. Those were on cut bait fishing near the suds. So I put out the king rig and pulled in the first chopper of the day off the king rigs which weight 9.9 pounds. A couple more chopper were landed and then I got my seconds at 7.6 pounds. During lunch I was asked to watch some rods while they went to eat and that is when I pulled in my third chopper blue at 12.1 pounds. Towards the end of the day I picked up my go home fish which was a chopper blue at 7.2 pounds. A total of 14 chopper blues were landed and a whole lot of tailor/snapper blues were landed. The blue bit all day long either on plugs when the water was clear then on cut bait once the water got sandy and then back to plugs as the water cleared this evening. So this was the first time putting out the king rig and it was a good day. We left a good amount of blues in the bait tank.

    I love seeing a report like this. I have never fished a pier (NC or elsewhere) and this firms up my commitment to get down to the shore this Summer.

    Unclesteve it's a blast! Even without the big king gear you can have such a good time with bottom rigs or gotcha plugs

    Yep, I picked up one of those rods. I think with these light S winds the blue fish should be on the tear for the next couple of days. I'll be putting out the king rig once I get done with work. Fingers are crossed for a cobia or king but do not mind playing with those choppers.

    Tim, I am confused, what is the better way to grab a chopper?

    Is it off a king rig at the end? Or off the bottom in the surf?

    Im gonna try again today for one, and I cant really set up a king rig ( with anchor rod etc..) on Oceanana, but I could just put out some live mullet directly on my line on a king rig and let him swim around with a bottom rig out at the same time....

    I hate to miss the plugging action at the end while Im at the surf if thats the case....might miss a good spanish or two ....im so torn!!!

    For me the best way is with a king rig at the end. Since you may also pick up a cobia or a king.
