Fishing Report Deep Jigging 5-26-2013

May 28th, 2013 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

Headed out to the break with the guys on day #2 with a great ride out and beautiful sunrise. Started in 300 feet and the guys worked hard. The current and wind pushed the jigs out during the drift but the guys worked hard. They did not want to eat the jigs for a while but we found a large pod of bait at 80 feet and the small Black fin tuna were around with the big AJs below them. Ray landed the 1st nice fish a 50 lber. Ray continued to hook some nice fish but they could not be stopped and broke him off in the ledge. Andy landed a small Black fin on top water and lost a couple more. We did not get a lot of bites in the deep but they were all quality fish and very mean. Moved back into 200 feet and found a few small Almacos and Barracuda. Started working a 140 foot ledge and Andy landed a nice 35 lber. The winds started picking up so we decided to move inshore and finish with some top water action. Stopped at 85 feet and a large wreck and caught a few small AJs on jigs. The dive boats must have worked the inshore wrecks hard for the holiday weekend because the AJs were no where to be found. A great 2 days of fishing for the guys.

Fishing Report 5-25-2013

Finally and good weather for cast and I had Ray, Andy, Jimmy, Tom and George come down from NY for 2 days of jigging and popping. Day #1 the wind was still blowing hard North so we stayed around 25 miles looking for AJs around the wrecks. The guys were not disappointed we stopped at 20 miles and I threw a few live pogies to see if they were around and the wolf pack showed up quickly. We had outstanding action all day with top water baits and jigging. The fished ranged from 10 lbs to 40 lbs but they were very mean. Later in the day the wind let up and they really turned on with 10 fish chancing the top water plugs. They got so aggressive you could get them to eat the plugs by using the figure-8 technique and more than once the strike was so aggressive it would splash the guys in the boat. We did have a nice Cobia swim by in the morning but would not take a bait. later in the day Ray landed a 20 lber on the jig. Headed back in the flat seas to get ready for day #2 and rest the sore muscles.
