Fishing Report Deep Jigging 4-27-2013

April 30th, 2013 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

I had the pleasure of having anglers travel to North Carolina from Japan for 2 days of jigging and popping. Mr. Hara, Eto, Oda, Mizutani, and Tsuruta. The weatherman was not kind at all and we were only able to get out 1 day and even that was very rough NE winds 15 plus most of the day. The fishing was good once we arrived. We found a lot of small AJs and Almacos in the morning. We did catch a small African and then the sharks started bothering us in 200 feet. We moved out to the deep spot and the 1st jig down was hammered by a fat 50 lber. It was a big effort trying to jig and fight fish in 4 foot seas stacked up with the current. The guys stuck with it all day and landed some nice AJs. It was a long wet painful ride home.

Fishing Report Deep Jigging and Trolling 4-14-2013

April 15th, 2013 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

I had Brandon, Eric, Phil, Steve and Jim for a day or jigging and trolling at the break. Had a great ride out with an outstanding sun rise. Started jigging in 150 feet of water but the water was 74 degrees and gulf steam blue. We had a lot of small AJs and Almacos but no big fish. Moved out to 200 feet and Jim caught the 1st African. Then he landed and nice Gag released after a couple pictures. Also found plenty of medium size AJs. Then Phil and Eric caught a pair of Africans. These are slightly smaller but have the long streamers on the body “very cool” Later in the morning decided to do a some trolling and it didn’t take long before the short rigger was skied by a 45 lb Wahoo. After a short fight Jim landed his 1st Wahoo. Trolled to the deep drop and found some action with Blackfins, Albies and Skip Jack Tuna. We caught a few AJs in the deep jigging and tried popping for Blackfin. We had a few strikes on the poppers but couldn’t keep them hooked. Had a great day with plenty of species and meat for the guys back at the dock.
