Fishing Report 5-13-2012

May 14th, 2012 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

The weather took a turn for the worse with 15 mph SE winds so making to the drop was out of the question. Decided to try some inshore spots for top water AJs and headed out 20 miles. There was a 3 to 4 ft chop but Jon made the 1st cast with the popper and immediately got skied by a 15 lb King Mackerel which cut off the mono but the plug floated with 6 AJs swimming circles around the popper. We retrieved the popper and it didn’t take long to start hooking AJs on poppers. Joey and Nick doubled up many times on live bait. Tetsu caught fish on top water and jigs. Later in the morning Nick caught a nice 12 lb Gag and released a short gag. We had wide open action for the 1st few hours and then picked at them until lunch. Once the bite shutdown they would not eat anything even through you could see the school following the boat on the drifts. Headed in so the guys could start the long trip back to NY.

Fishing Report Deep Jigging 5-12-2012 Day #1

May 14th, 2012 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

Finally a day of good weather for Jon, Tetsu, Nick and Joey to come down from NY with www.bookfishingtrips.com We headed off shore in flat seas and made it to the deep drop by 7:30. The current was moving slightly to the south and it didn’t take long Jon was the 1st to hook up with a decent Almaco. We had steady action with good AJs and Almacos all morning. Caught a nice Mahi on top water and lost a couple more on plugs. Moved in to 150 feet looking for some grouper action. Nick had the hot hand for the day. About 12:30 he hooked something different on his light 7 foot conventional set up when it came to the top it was a 31 lb Gag Grouper “Black Belly” Then he put on a clinic. He landed a 15 lb Red Snapper (released), hooked what would have been a 20 lb Fireback Grouper, 10 lb Scamp and topped it off with another giant 34 lb Gag on a buck tail. Joey had a nice Gag eaten by the sharks and landed a 10 lb Red. Tetsu had a Strawberry Grouper and Snowy and Jon had a Kitty Mitchell and a Yellow Mouth. In total we gags, reds, scamps, yellow mouth, strawberry, snowy, kitty mitchel, red snapper and a fireback. In addition, Blackfin, Mahi, AJs, Alamcos, Pinkys. A great day of fishing with  a lot of species.
