Late jigging report


I've been meaning to share some pics for awhile now but life has gotten in the way recently...

Anywhoooo... We had some guests from Sprotfishing Magazine and ASA in town for the grouper opener. The goal was to gather content for a future article in the magazine. Well, mission accomplished! In 2 days, we documented 32 different species on the FlatSide and FlatFall jigs. For the most part we stayed in 140 to 200 feet of water. The drifts were slow enough that we got away with jig from 140 gram to as small as 80. It wa slights out action all day for both days...

We had a couple of notable catches. Day one I got a black jack (trevally). I've talked to a lot of people since and no one can remember seeing one this far north. A really cool looking fish that had me wondering during the fight...


On day 2, Trey caught a large sand tile. We joked that it was a giant but we never considered weighing it. Turns out it would have eclipsed the world record by a few pounds. Oh well... Live and learn!


We had lots of good eats boated. Along with the usual grouper, we had African pompano, mutton, big eye toro, cobia, trigger, porgy, atlantic green bonito and a ton more. Bottom line is everything eats a jig when fished correctly!

Here are a few pics from the 2 days... What a blast!

We've stepped it up to 80. We had quite a few breakoffs with fish getting us in the rocks... I've always gone withe Seaguar for the invizibilty. 90% of the time, it doesn't matter but when the bite is tough in clear water, I want to be in stealth mode
