Fishing Report Gulf Stream Trolling and Deep Jigging 12-28-2012

December 29th, 2012 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

We had a small 1 day window to try to make it to the stream while my son David was in town for the holidays. The ride out was OK a little NE left from strong winds yesterday. I set up the trolling spread and starting working in around 170 feet. We made a few passes around the ledge and only had a knock down moved off shore slightly and started marking bait at 50 feet. Then all hell broke loose when all 6 lines started screaming at the same time. The biggest issue is that we only had 3 anglers on the boat. After the a few minutes 2 fish came off and David landed the 1st fish a 60 lb Wahoo. I gave David another rod and landed a 50 lb Wahoo and finally my buddy Rich landed his Wahoo. The last fish actually broke the lip off a new stretch 30 plug. The was unreal I have never seen this before and it is scary to think about how hard the fish hit the plug. Once we took a few pictures and got 2 lines out both went off and we landed another 40 lb Wahoo. We ended up with 5 Wahoo and lost at least 10 others. The trolling bite slowed around 1200 so it was time to jig. 1st drop and we all had AJs and Almacos then Rich landed and 20 lb Gag. I followed him with a 25 lb Gag and David had a 10 lb Scamp. We had a lot of action jigging with AJs, Almacos, Rainbow Runners, Albies and King Mackerel. We headed back in early with both fish boxes full and sore backs. A great trip to finish the 2012 season.

Fishing Report Deep Jigging/Gulf stream 12-1-2012

December 2nd, 2012 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

We finally got a decent day to get off shore. I had Anthony, Will, Rob and Jose drive down from Raleigh. The weather was OK with a NE wind/swell once we reached the break. Set up for the 1st drift and did a demo for Will an Jose which were 1st time jigging anglers it didn’t take long and hooked our 1st AJ. The fishing was OK with good action but the sharks found us and started eating most of the hooked fish. We landed and few AJs and False Albies. Decided to put the lines out and troll to the next spot. We didn’t get all of the lines out and had a Wahoo on the long lines. After a long run it through the hook. Continued trolling and we had  pack of Sail fish in the baits. After most of the baits got hit we finally hooked one after a long drop back. Rob grabbed the rod and did a great job angling the fish. We stopped at the next jigging spot and had good action. The high light was a fat 35 lb African. We landed a few more good AJs and headed for the inlet.
