Gulf Stream/Jigging Trip 5-26-2008

May 28th, 2008 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

Headed out Monday with a great group for SC and NC to do a combo trip at the gulf stream and some jigging. The ride out was a little bumpy due to the east swell and went through a few storms/clouds. Started trolling and we had a knock down quickly which was a small Blackfin tuna. Most of the boats in the area were talking about the slow troll bite so we headed out and started jigging for Snowy grouper. Everyone caught their limit after a few drifts. The largest was around 25 lbs and great fish. Went back to the drop and started trolling and caught a Mahi quickly and then it slowed down again. Did some jigging and different ledges but very slow bite. Started trolling in 130 feet of water when the short diving plug started screaming and we had our Wahoo. The trolling was slow but did manage a tuna/mahi/wahoo. Cleared the inlet as the sun was setting to end a great day on the water.

LiveLine Charters Fishing Report 5-25-08

Had a full day trip with a group from NC. We started around 12 miles looking for kings but the front from Saturday has them shutdown in shore. The guys wanted to try there hand catching AJs. Headed out 20 miles and the 1st drop to my surprise we had a nice fat Gag grouper. Then we started catching AJs on live bait and the guys found out how hard they fight on 50 lb tackle. The largest fish was 49 inches and 30 inch girth around 50 lbs. Then we started with poppers on top which was something to see when they exploded on the surface. We did a little bottom fishing and caught a keeper red and broke off a couple. Could not locate any kings that wanted to eat.
