Fishing Report Deep Jigging 9-23-2012

September 25th, 2012 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

Day #2 we headed offshore for another day of deep jigging. It was a decent ride out with a NW wind. We started in 280 feet and Tony was the 1st to drop and had a nice AJ on immediately. Everyone has great action all morning with 30 to 60 lb AJs and Almacos. Had many drifts with multiple hook ups. Winnie landed her largest AJ after a long battle. We also saw a couple Wahoo chasing the jigs to the boat and had 4 different bite offs. Mike hooked the 1st shark of the day and brought a 250 lb Dusky to the boat for a few pictures. By about 1:00 we decided to bottom fishing after everyone was spent after 2 days of battling AJs. Tried live bait fishing in shallower water and could only find smaller AJs.The winds picked up for a bumpy ride home.

Fishing Report Deep Jigging 9-22-2012 Day #1

September 24th, 2012 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

I had Winnie, Mike, Nick, Al and Tony come down from NY for 2 days of NC jigging. Day #1 we had flat calm seas and a great ride out. We started in 280 feet of water and there was zero current and wind. It took a couple drifts to find the fish but once we found them it was none stop all day. This was Tony’s 1st trip to NC and his 1st trip jigging and he started things off right. His 1st fish was a fat 57 inch x 36 inch fish. Everyone caught nice fish and with no current they battled all the way to the boat. The sharks took a few fish and when I dropped a head overboard we saw a large Wahoo swim by the boat/head while drifting down. I put a swimming plug on Nick’s popping rod and we went up for the next drift. We only moved a short distance and the popping rods started screaming drag. Nick landed a nice 56 lb Wahoo. The largest fish of the day was caught by Al and giant 59 inch x 38 inch 100 lber. After a long morning/afternoon of jigging we went looking for some bottom fish but very slow.
