Fishing Report 3-18-2012 Deep Jigging Day #2

March 19th, 2012 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

Day #2 started with a slow ride out through the inlet with thick fog. Once off shore it cleared and with 10 miles to go the ocean went completely flat. Started in 140 feet and 1st jig over was immediately hammered. Everyone got into the action quickly and with no current the fish fought even harder. Caught a nice class of fish all day ranging from 15 to 50 lbs. The water is already at 73 degrees when it would normally be 68 degrees now due to the warm winter I assume. In the middle of the morning Bart hooked something large on a buck tail but turned into a 6 foot Dusky fouled hooked in the peck fin. Everyone worked hard all day but as usual Lourdes showed the guys how it was done. Bart finally broke the ice with the 1st Cobia of the day but a small 12 lber. Had another 15 lber and then at the end of the day Frank hooked a big boy 45 lbs. This was a good start to the season and look for things to continue to improve if the weatherman can give us a break.

Fishing Report Deep Jigging 3-17-2012 Day #1

March 19th, 2012 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

The wind finally stopped blowing and we were able to start the 2012 jigging season with old friends down from NY. Lourdes, Andrew, Peter, Frank and Bart made the trip down with bookfishing trips.com. The ride out started nice but once we crossed into the gulf stream current the seas picked up a lot. We stopped in 350 feet to try for tuna 1st thing but the current was 4 plus knots and the seas 4 to 6 and very steep. After a couple drifts Lourdes hooked a nice AJ that was eaten by a shark. Moved in to 135 feet to get out of the current and marked fish quickly. Everyone dropped and had 5 anglers hooked up. The action was wide open for a while. The fish were mixed with 15 to 20 lb fish and a few larger fish mixed in. There were so many small aggressive fish the large AJs were too slow to eat the jigs. Peter and Bart hooked a pair of decent 50 lb fish. Frank landed/released a nice 20 lb Gag.Continued to work the 135 foot range the rest of the day with good action. Late in the day the seas laid down for a 43 mph ride home.
