Fishing Report Deep Jigging 8-24-2012

August 26th, 2012 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

I had Nathan and his father David travel in from New Zealand for their 1st jigging trip in NC. We headed to the south in light NE winds. Once we got out 45 miles the winds let off and the ocean was flat at the break. After a couple of drifts we had good action with nice AJs. Then we found the Blackfin tuna and caught 3 10 to 20 lb fish on the jigs. Later in the morning they started busting on bait and we caught some on top water poppers. The sharks showed up later in the morning and started taking the AJs. We moved to a different area and tried from grouper. Dave landed his 1st Yellow mouth grouper. We had a couple more hooked but the sharks got them. Later in the afternoon we found a school of big AJs. They broke us off on the 1st couple tried but then we finally landed a double header. The largest was a 54 inch fish around 80 lbs. We had a interesting ride home with thunder storms and strong winds.

Fishing Report Deep Jigging/Gulf Stream 8-19-2012

August 21st, 2012 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

I had a group of local guys and a couple jr. anglers on Sunday and headed out to the Gulf Stream for some trolling and jigging. Started trolling in 120 feet and waited for some storms to move off shore. We had a couple strikes and had a Wahoo run off some line before throwing the hook. There was not a lot of life on top and very little bait. We switched over to try some jigging at the deep spot and it didn’t take long. I dropped the 1st jig and was trying to show the proper action and got slammed after the 1st 20 feet of jigging. It didn’t take long for the guys to figure out the technique. We also had some Albies and a nice 18 lb Black fin. After a few hours of great jig fishing we decided to move inshore and try for some grouper. The current was running very strong to the south and we found more AJs but no groupers. We had an exciting ride home due to a storm line with 60 mph winds but made it home safe.
