Fishing Report 8-15-2008

Had a great group of guys from all over in town for a work meeting and took a day to do some fishing. The weatherman was nice with a light NE wind and calm seas. The guys wanted to get a work out so we went out 20 miles to play with the AJs. The 1st line in the water was a nice Cuda that was hooked in the corner of the jaw so he didn’t cut through the mono. We worked on the AJs most of the day with live bait and jigging. Had a couple over 40 and one pushing 50 lbs. Then the dive boat took our spot so we went off shore and tied another spot that was slow and even slower when we tried trolling. Finished out the day jigging more large AJs until everyone had their fill. Between the full moon and east wind the other species didn’t seem to be cooperating by the radio talk but we had fish most of the day. I almost forgot we hooked a 250 lb shark while jigging on my 760 spinning set up. The problem was that we hooked it in the peck-fin and got it with in 10 feet of the boat before the leader broke but a great battle.

Live Live Fishing Report 8-10-2008

Had a return group of local clients with some out of town relatives for a full live bait trip. Headed out to the 23 mile area with live bait caught at the inlet and started trolling. It didn’t take long before the long line went off with a nice Mahi but it jumped the hooks. Then the short rod went off with the same result but the school came to the boat and we started throwing them live baits and we ended up with 4 nice Mahi. The largest was a 18 lb Bull that went crazy chasing and live bait for 30 seconds before he caught it. We continued trolling several spots with no more action and decided to change tactics and anchored. The light line went off and started screaming for the horizon and then came back toward the boat. The lady angler did a great job and we had a 20 lb Bonita. Then went I started jigging we hooked a nice AJ. Moved off shore and started grouper fishing and the action was none stop but most were short Scamps. We kept working at it and ended up with 8 nice keeper grouper. Headed back home with plenty of Mahi and Grouper in the box.
