Fishing Report Deep Jigging 11-20-2010

Had John/Phil come down from NJ and Brian from Raleigh to take advantage of the flat calm ocean in Wilmington, NC. After a 38 knot ride out the made their 1st drop and John hooked up in 10 seconds. A decent fish 35 lbs. There was zero current and the boat seemed to be going in circles when we hooked fish. Phil had a nice Almaco and then a couple more. Eventually the sharks found us and took a few fish. Moved to a different area and John caught a 10 lb Yellow Mouth Grouper. We marked the tuna but couldn’t get the jigs through the False Albes. The Black fin were there because the guys trolling next to us were hooking them along with Wahoo. We also saw 3 different Sails free jumping. Then we found the big boys but the guys didn’t stand a chance. Brian was the 1st to hook one and she striped 100 feet off the spool before shredding the leader in the rocks. John hooked the next one with the same results. Things seemed to slow down later in the day so we moved inshore for some grouper. Brian started with a 20 lb Red, then a 4 lb Lion Fish and then a huge Queen trigger. He had the hot corner for a while. Worked our way inshore looking for a gag but no luck. It was a mixed bag with plenty of nice fillets for the coolers.

Fishing Report Deep Jigging 11-14&15-2010

It has been a while thanks to the weather but had a 2 day window to get off shore. Sami, Brian, Burt, David and Jose made the trip down from NY. Day #1 headed to the south in a NE swell but a nice ride. The action started slow but picked up in the morning. The problem was when we found the AJs the sharks found them every time. We hooked a few good fish but couldn’t get them to the boat. Started catching some nice Black fin and worked on tuna most of the day. Also had a couple decent Mahi on top water. At the end of the day the AJs decided to eat and we had OK action late in the afternoon. We did manage to hook 3 grouper that all turned into lunch for the sharks. Ended the day with a full fish box with 12 Black fin, 2 Mahi and 2 Kings. Day #2 headed to the north looking for the AJs but slow once again. We did start picking up a couple of fish a drift but all were around 30 lbs. Decided to work our way south again and hits a few ledges on the way. Had a couple more Black fin before moving in to a wreck in 100 feet to try top water. It only took a few drifts and we had AJs chase the poppers but missed the hooks. We had a big fish hooked on the jig but no stopping him from getting into the wreck. We landed a couple nice Almacos before running back in flat seas.
