Alewives

Don't you wish you could cast a alewives/herring as far as possable from the shore without it coming loose?....Here is how to do it.....Buy alewives........my guy saves the dead ones...if yours are alive..... they need to go to "alewives heaven" before this works......Separate them on a cookie sheet and freeze them.....when its time to fish....take them to the beach frozen!!!!...give a good dose of fish oil and hook behind the dorsal...then let it fly.....In the early season. and most of the year., stripers will crush the alewive, or any tiny bait fish.......dead or alive!!. So freeze some alewives. and cast them to where you have not been able to before................and Hold the ROD!...please practice catch and release.
