Fishing Report Deep Jigging 4-2-2014

April 4th, 2014 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

Since we couldn’t find a day to fish on the weekend we decided to go on Wed while we had a small weather window. Frank and Luke can down from Raleigh and we headed off shore in a 15mph SW wind. The seas were building at the stream but the fishing was awesome. The 1st drift we had a couple small AJs and then Frank hooked something different and when it came up it was a giant Jack Crevalle. She was 43 inches long and very fat. This is now the new pending North Carolina State record at 49.1 lbs. We have some paperwork to handle but it should be certified as the new record. Continued fishing and had more AJs. Frank hooked another big fish and landed a 40 lb African. Another outstanding catch. We landed and released a couple of gags. Then Frank hooked another big African but a wolf pack of spinner sharks attacked it with in site of the boat. What a site but irritating. We moved to other locations after the sharks became aggressive. We had more AJs and sharks. While moving to another location I put out a couple plugs and with in 10 minutes the rod started screaming and Luke landed his 1st 39 lb Wahoo. We tried popping for Blackfin in the deep but no luck. Ended the day jigging a few more AJs.

Fishing Report Deep Jigging 2-1-2014

February 7th, 2014 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

I had Will, Jay, Toby, Shawn and LeAnn come down from Charlotte far a day of deep jigging. As usual the weather forecast was off somewhat with NE wind 15 mph. It was a wet cold ride out but once we started jigging it was worth the ride. Started hooking AJs on the 1st drift. They were between 15 to 50 lbs and what they lacked in size they made up with attitude due to the 68 degree water. Will started out great and hooked/landed a 42 lb Wahoo on a jig on a light action set up. The group worked hard all morning with many multiple hook ups on drifts including all 5 anglers on a couple drifts. Later in the day moved to slightly deeper water looking fro Africans. We found more AJs, Almacos and big Albies but the sharks eventually found us and took a few jigs. Shawn was able to land a nice 20 lb African with out the sharks taking it. We ended the day with more AJs and found a school of larger class fish for more pain. Everyone crashed in the bean bags for the ride home. This was a great start for the 2014 season more to come.
