Trip Info

The Catch
Amberjack
Spanish Mackerel
Summary

We left at 7 in the morning, and went out to first catch live bait. We caught hard tails and cigar minnows before tossing out some trolling gear for Spanish mackerel. We caught a dozen within just a 10 minutes and then decided to head offshore for amberjacks. We road for an hour and as soon as we dropped some live baits down it was an instant hook up! We bottom fished for an hour and in that time caught and released 15 amberjacks. We had a bull shark come up and actually eat one we were fighting. Our costumers decided they had a good enough workout and decided to head back. What a great day of making memories it was!
