A bit breezy. Made my way out on the bar, seeing little in the way of life forms. Early incoming and I was casting into a trough, thinkin back to June and July, when I hear a commotion behind me. Birds going nuts and the water looked like a washin machine in the wash cycle and coming right at me. About an acre (well probably a 1/4 acre) of large bluefish, flying out of the water, tracking and crashing bait. They got to within 20 feet of me as they passed. Got a tug but didn't hook up. Woulda got cut-off anyhow. With the tide filling in behind me had to vacate. Saw a few more blitzes in the distance along the beach as I walked in.
