Did you guys target them, or are people suddenly catching blues when after other bottom feeders.

If the latter is the case then you could almost say that there appears to be a substantial increase in these species this year.

If the former is the case, has this been brought about by this species being prominent on a local fishing mags cover and people are chasing them as they are on there bucket list.

They use to be everywhere.( point peron). They pretty well got shot out. Now days not many I know shoot them. But if you choose to that's fine also. But yeah they seem to be a few around. Baldies are everywhere atm. They are definatly increasing big time.
