Nice going Bob! I've only fished those northeast flats, sight-casting for stripers and bluefish a few times. It's certainly exciting stuff.

The last time I did it was many years ago with Del Brown. Del loved to cast Gurglers to those fish in the skinny waters of Monomoy Inlet. Here's a series of scanned shots I took of him taking a bluefish on a Gurgler. His guide was Rich Benson - I believe.

Oh, these shots were taken before Boga Grips were available and the norm was to use a lip gaff on toothy critters.
