Fishing Report 7-19-2011 Deep Jigging

July 20th, 2011 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

I had a Steve and Danny in town from Kentucky for a 1st time jigging trip in NC. The ocean was nice with just a large east swell from the storm off shore. Started at a 18 mile wreck but only 1 AJ and too many sharks. Decide to run all the way to the break and it was worth the ride. 1st drop in 240 feet was an immediate hook up with nice Almacos. The action stayed steady with the Almacos for a while. Moved around a little trying to find the larger AJs but no big ones. The current was running 3 to 4 knots and the water temps were 88 degrees so I think they were being lazy. We did find some decent AJs later in the day. Also had 3 small Scamp grouper. Late in the afternoon they shutdown on the jigs so we ran inshore to a wreck and Danny landed the largest fish on the lightest rod a great battle.

Fishing Report 7-3-2011

Had Curtis Grant from Phoenix, AZ returned for more NC off shore fishing with Eric and Joel. Went to the Gulf Stream looking for Mahi. Started in 120 feet with flying fish everywhere. After a short period we had a small Mahi on the short flat line. Had good action in the morning with fish every 20 to 30 minutes. Joel caught the largest when a 20 Bull came in a crushed the short spreader bar set up. We trolled out to the deep to try out jigging for the Jacks. Joel caught a monster Almaco pushing 50 lbs. After a couple of triple headers the guys had enough and we went looking for some Grouper for dinner. Had 3 nice Scamps after a few drops on some inshore ledges. The afternoon bite slowed again (seems to be a pattern lately). The SW winds kicked up for the bumpy/wet ride home.
