Thread: Albies in NY

    Default Albies in NY

    Fished with Capt. John McMurray out of Jamaica bay a few days ago. Caught 7 albies in 2 1/2 hours charter. I caught most using 10wt intermediate line with 20lb F.C. tippet. Then , later I changed to floating line and caught a few more. My silverside pattern worked for a few for my friend but John's small albie whore fly worked a lot better.
    I wouldn't use any rod lighter than 9wt for these strong running fish. I have broken my 9wt
    on an albie a few years ago. Tight Lines!
