Fishing Report Deep Jigging 3-23-2013 Day #2

March 25th, 2013 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

On Day #2 Peter Parks joined the guys and we left early and ran 35 mph in flat seas. As expected it didn’t take long and had bent rods on the 1st drift. The early morning fish were a little bigger and much meaner. They were very aggressive slamming the jigs and we no current so they covered a lot of ground around the boat. The guys did a great job keeping the lines untangled. We had multiple hook ups every drift for most of the morning. The new guys started feeling the pain from 2 days for jigging but stayed with it all day. Later in the day we tried a couple deep spots looking for Black fin but found more hungry jacks. Charlie caught a nice Yellow Mouth grouper, Peter released a gag and a few Albies. We had a giant Logger Head turtle come right up to the boat and check us out (very cool). Later in the day we found a school of big AJs. The 1st drift we had all 5 guys on at once. Landed a lot of 50 lb class fish. Peter caught the largest for the trip. She was a fat 54 inch long by 32 inch girth 70 plus lbs which was his best AJ. Ran back at 40 mph in a flat calm ocean.

Fishing Report Deep Jigging 3-22-2013 Day #1

March 25th, 2013 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

I had Nick, Kint and new anglers Charlie and Wilton traveled down from NY for 2 days of jigging. We delayed leaving by a couple hours due to the winds still blowing. The ride out was better than expected and once we dropped the 1st jig it was wide open. In didn’t take long for the new guys to get the hang of it. The water temps were around 70 degrees so the AJs were mean and fought hard all the way to the boat with little current. We had great action from mid morning all the way to early afternoon. Nick hooked something that fought different and came to the top at the boat and I stuck the gaff into the 1st Cobia for the year. Then Wilton caught another nice Cobia. Charlie was not to be out done and landed a 23 lb African. The next drift Nick landed his 2nd Cobia. Later in the day we moved around and found more AJs , Almacos, Rainbow Runners and also found a hungry wolf pack of sharks. Released a couple nice gags and Albies. Headed back in just before dark to get ready for day #2. We weighed the Cobia at the dock 39 lbs, 38 lbs and 36 lbs lots of good eating for the guys.
