Deep Jigging 4-14-2012

April 16th, 2012 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

I had Mike, Kint, Winnie, Al and John down from NY with bookfishingtrips.com for 1 day of deep jigging. The ride out was great flat calm and ran at 42 mph. Started off in 140 feet but no current and to takers on the jigs. Moved out to 200 feet and had a few small AJs. Finally went to the deep and found some 50 lb classl AJs. The current was very slow and the fish were not aggressive on the jigs. Landed some decent fish and a few sharks. Caught a nice skip jack tuna and a small Blackfin. By the middle of the day decided to run 25 miles south looking for more current and action. Stopped at the numbers and 1st drift we had 4 anglers hook up to big fish. We lost 2 of the 3 fish due to the size of the AJs (broke leaders). Kint landed his fish a fat 53 inch x 32 inch 85 lb female. For what ever reason couldn’t get the big fish to eat again. Found 30 to 40 lbers and then the wolf pack found us. We had 10 150 to 250 lb Dusky sharks that would not give us a break. Landed some nice False Albies and Almacos. The warm winter and 76 degrees water had them out of the normal spring patterns.

Finally got a break in the weather and headed off shore with some local guys for trolling and jigging. Started off trolling and had a lot of short strikes and Wahoo bites bit could keep them hooked. Jigged in the deep water and had a few nice AJs until the sharks found us and would let us land a fish. The afternoon trolling bite was better and finally landed a nice 55 lb Wahoo. Ended the day by bailing some nice gaffer Mahi on spinning tackle.
