Gulf Stream and Deep Jigging Trip 4-26-2008

April 27th, 2008 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

Headed out on Sat for a Gulf Stream/ Deep Jigging trip and the weather was as advertised great. Started by trying to catch a African but did not find them so we started trolling. Worked a few areas with no action so started north and found a good temp break and rip/weed line and it didn’t take long to start catch Mahi. We had as may as 4 or 5 at a time (sorry no time to take any pictures). A couple of time we had the school next to the boat and started catching them on the spinning rods. We stayed VERY busy for a couple of hours. We ended up with 19 Mahis and released a few peanuts. Started looking for a Wahoo and we eventually had a hit on the short Mai plug but pulled the hooks. Ended the day by doing 1 drop a 250 feet and had a quad hook up with large AJs. We boated and released 3 of them and the 4th pulled the hooks. The guys did a great job keeping them separated and the largest was caught by the 14 year old angler that did a great job. The fish was 57 inches and 37 inch girth (estimated over 80 lbs). We were the last to leave and had a nice ride home at 40 mph.
Things are heating up at the stream so give me a call or e-mail to experience NC gulf stream fishing/deep jigging at its best.

Jigging/Gulf Stream Trip 4-11-2008

April 12th, 2008 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

The weatherman gave us another beautiful day and I finally got a gentleman out that came all the way from Arizona to fish in NC. We headed to the stream for a combo trip since he was fishing alone we thought we would try different techniques. Stopped at a offshore ledge for jigging and 1st drift he catch a 26 lb African Pompano. The next drift he had a 13 lb Scamp grouper then multiple AJs. When the bite slowed we headed to the stream for trolling and after a short time we have a multiple hook up on Mahi. He did great we have 4 on at once and boated 3 of 4 with only 1 angler. Had a few more Mahis then the long line went off and I thought we had our Wahoo but turned out to be a large King 26 lbs. Continued trolling and finally the long line started screaming off and we had out Blackfin tuna. At the end of the day we tried some bottom fishing but it was slow but we did catch a couple of kings on the light line. I think this was the most species on game fish we had caught in one trip 7 species.
