Fishing Report Deep Jigging 9-10-2011

September 12th, 2011 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

I had Andrew, Lourdes and Jimmy come down from NY for a day of jigging and they picked a great day. This was by far the best jigging day since the spring for total action. It was not stop every drift every drop for 8 1/2 hours. To be honest we lost count of the # of fish landed but well over 100 fish for 3 anglers. We had a mix bag of sizes from small fish to 50 inchers. The big fish showed up as usual in the middle of the day. Lourdes was the 1st to land a 53 inch fatty. Andrew had a 54 and a 53 inch fish. Lourdes finished the last drift with a 52 inch fish. Jimmy had a lot of quality 45 lb AJs and a 16 lb Gag. In addition to the AJs we had Almacos, Black fin, Scamp and Gag grouper. It was great to see this many fish of all sizes for the future. Andrew was bringing up a small AJ and the drag started screaming off the reel for 100 feet and stopped. He brought up the small AJ which had been swallowed by a bigger AJ but didn’t get the hook. I wished we could have seen this one. The ocean went flat for the ride home and everyone crashed in the bean bags after a long day.

Fishing Report Deep Jigging 9-4-2011

September 6th, 2011 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

Finally back on the water after a 6 week lay off due to a broken foot/cast/crutches. I had the guys come down from NY for 1 day of jigging Ray, George, John, Ben and Hing. The ocean was flat and ran 32 knots to the south. The water temps are still at 85 degrees and a little current. After a couple of drifts we got the AJs and Alamcos fired up. The sharks are still around and a few fish/jigs fell victim. The action was steady but not wide open. We moved around and George found the fish of the day over some rough bottom a 30 lb black belly Gag Grouper. This was a great fish on a jig this time of year. Also had 3 more Scamps/Yellow Mouth Grouper. A current time came by with some weeds and we started bailing the Mahi on top water. It was wide open bloody decks for a while and put 20 Mahis in the box  for dinner. Continued working the jigs and found more nice Almacos. Later in the afternoon we finally had a quad hook up and landed Almacos/Albis and AJs. John landed a nice 12 lb Black fin on the last drift to add to the species list and the cooler. It felt good to be back on the water and looking forward to the fall season it won’t be long before the big boys should start showing up.
