Fishing Report 6-29-2009 Live Bait

June 30th, 2009 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

Had a group of guys in town from Pittsburgh, Pa. and it was their 1st time deep sea fishing. The weather was OK with a SW swell. Left the dock with 2 live wells full of pogies. Started around 10 miles and had great action on small kings and a couple of teenagers. After everyone had warmed up with the kings we headed off shore for a work out. The guys were not disappointed and caught plenty of AJs. They were holding close to the wrecks so we lost a lot of fish. Once again a nice bonus with a gag grouper drifting for the AJs. After a few drifts we picked up a few large Cuda staying under the boat and they would pick off the baits as we dropped them. I decided to put one out with a short piece of wire and a 40 lber ate it next to the boat. I hand off the rod and the fish made a run for the bow and swung around towards the stern I saw something flash over my head from the starboard side of the boat. The cuda jumper completely over the T-top (with bean bags on top) and landed 10 feet on the port side. I couldn’t; believe it he cleared everything and broke the line. I have seen cudas jump before close to the boat but never directly over the center of the T-top. Everyone was as surprised as me. We moved off another 5 miles and started trolling and had plenty of Mahi and king action.

Fishing Report 6-27-2009 Live Bait Trip

June 29th, 2009 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

Had a local group of guys on Saturday for a live bait trip. The wind in the morning was a little more than fore casted as usual but we started around 10 miles and had a small king right away. The storms from Friday night had the water messed up and it didn’t look good. Decided to take a ride out 20 miles and play with AJs. 1st drift over we had a nice surprise 15 lb Gag grouper. Then the AJs decided to start eating and everyone caught there fill until they wanted to try trolling and take a break. Moved to a live bottom area around 21 miles and 1st line in the water we had a nice Mahi but it threw the hook with a couple of jumps. Had great action trolling with kings, Mahi and a nice 25 lb Cobia. Also had multiple kings eaten by a 40 lb Cuda following us for a free meal. The late afternoon thunder storms came up and we decided to call it a day. Overall a great day with 6 different species all on live bait.
