Fishing Report 4-25-2009 Jigging/Bottom Fishing

April 27th, 2009 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

Had a jigging/bottom fishing trip with a group of guys down from NY. We wanted to try primarily for grouper/bottom fishing. The ride out was not fun into a east swell. Went 52 miles and the current was running hard. We caught a few various bottom species but could not get the grouper to bite. Move offshore and had a nice 30 lb African jigging and a 20 lb red grouper. Worked hard moving around and tried for tuna on the jigs but I think they are all still to the south chasing flyers from yesterday. Ended the day with a beautiful Hog Snapper on the jig. Also had a lot of smaller AJs until the guys had enough.

Fishing Report 4-24-2009 Deep Jigging Day #2

April 27th, 2009 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

Headed out with Paul and the guys for day #2. Finally the weatherman was right. Went to the south in search of the big boys. Had great action and caught some decent fish in the morning but nothing over 50 inches. Then the area went crazy with Black fin tuna chasing flyers everywhere. We proceeded to caught them on top water and what a blast. The action was none stop for a while and in every direction tuna were in the air. We had a triple hook up and Igor tried his light tackle set up since we had Mahi around the boat but the problem was that the largest Blackfin of the trip hit the top water plug. After a 30 minute battle a 30 plus lber was in the boat. Later in the afternoon the large AJs started chewing. We had 2 fish over 50 inches the largest was 56? length and 36 inch girth. Another amazing day jigging/top water with 7 or 8 more species.
