Deep Jigging 3-20-2010

March 25th, 2010 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

Had a 1 day weather window and took Kevin, Bernie, Richard and Jimmy all 1st time NC jiggers came down from NJ to see what our area had to offer. Like most anglers that visit NC I don’t’ think they were disappointed. Started in 140 feet and after very quick lesson on jigging it was on. The guys learned quick and couldn’t believe the power of the AJs. As usual none stop action every single drift. Had a small African turn into breakfast for a shark then Kevin caught the big boy 38 lb African. After a couple of hours the guys wanted to try for tuna. Moved to 200 feet and found even more Jacks then moved out to the deep and 1st drift a nice 25 lb Blackfin. Continued to catch Blackfin in the middle of double headers of 50 plus inch AJs. The big boys were there and caused a lot of pain. Richard ended the day with a 300 plus lb Dusky on the jig. A outstanding day with 5 Blackfin, 3 Africans, double digit Jacks, 300 lb shark.

Fishing Report Deep Jigging 3-8-2010 Days #2

March 9th, 2010 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

Day #2 started with a stiff SW wind once we got offshore but still made it to the drop. The AJs were still hungry but I think the sharks were even more hungry. We had a lot of fish but a lot of tackle lost to the sharks. Caught plenty of sharks on jigs. The winds let off in the afternoon and caught another nice Cobia and also a African. The high light of the day was Ken breaking in his new Blue fin popping rod set up on a 9 foot 400 lb Hammerhead shark. After a 30 minute battle the line parted with the shark 10 feet below the boat. There are some great videos coming when Peter gets home. Just want to say thanks to Jonathan, Peter, Ken, Joey and Tetsu from www.bookfishingtrips.com for 2 days of none stop action and it is only the 1st week on March.
