Have you ever tried cut or whole skipjack? The best bait I have found for big blues. When you cut them up they bleed like crazy and they are an oily fish so they give off a lot of scent. I have caught blues and flat heads on live bream but not on cut bream. I use a slip sinker rig with a big circle hook. The circle hook ends up in the corner of the mouth every time and I have never lost one once they have been hooked. You don't set the hook with a circle hook you just let the fish hook it's self, that takes some getting used to. Let them run with the drag set properly for the line you are using and when the rod has a good bend in it start fighting them. Best thing I have found for big cats. Were you fishing deep? Day or night? We have been getting them near the Arsenal in about ten feet of water at night on skipjack.
