Live Line Fishing Report 11-22-2008

November 26th, 2008 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

Went on a quick 1/2 day grouper trip on Sunday. Just my self and a buddy. The ocean was flat and we caught a few live baits and went looking for Gags. Stopped around 85 feet and the 1st bait was on the bottom for 10 seconds before I got smoked. We had a great time a limited out but needless to say we lost more than we caught. It is amazing even with 80 to 100 lb braid and 150 lb leader you still can’t stop a large Gag when they want to get to the rocks. We also had a lot of AJs that wouldn’t leave the live bait alone.

Gulf Stream 11-17-2008

November 19th, 2008 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

Headed out to the Gulf Stream for a try at some Wahoo and late steam action. The weatherman gave us a short window so we headed off shore in a NW 3 foot chop. Started putting lines out and got to the 3rd line and the long port rigger went off. A large Wahoo took off for the horizon slashing across the surface. After a 20 minute battle and a lot of head shaking he came up and threw the hook 20 feet from the boat. We put the lines out again and before we got 2 out another drag started screaming. This turned out to be a over achieving Bonita. We worked the area but the water was very dirty. We picked up a few more fish and decided to move South to cleaner water. The bite was slow in the middle of the day so we jigged Jacks for a while. No large ones but triple headers kept us busy. We ended the day trolling a good rip line with weeds and caught a nice 61 inch Sail and a few small Mahi. Headed back in and cleared the inlet at dark.Captain Mike Jackson
