Fishing Report 12-29-2011 Deep Jigging/Trolling

December 30th, 2011 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

We finally got a 1 day weather window and headed off shore with my son David (in town for the holidays from Miami) and fishing pal Steve Conley. We started off jigging 1st thing looking for some Cobia and Grouper but only found a few small Jacks. Decided to switch over and try trolling for Wahoo. It did take long I was in the process of setting out the 3rd line when the medium flat line started screaming off drag. David grabbed the rod and landed a nice 40 lb Wahoo. It stayed wide open for the next hour and never got all 6 lines set before getting another strike. We had Wahoo, False Albes (6 at a time) and Black fin. The largest Wahoo 50 lbs hit the long rigger and melted off 300 yards while Steve watched. There is nothing like a Wahoo run while trolling. The wind picked up from the SW around 1:00 and the trolling bite slowed down. We moved in to 200 feet and started jigging. David hooked a small Jack that turned into a large shark. While we were battling the shark Steve landed a 32 lb and a 36 lb African back to back. Decided to head in when the winds picked up to 15 to 20 mph with 3 Nice Wahoo, Blackfin and  2 Africans. The fishing is still outstanding here when the weather allows.
