Trip Info

The Catch
Amberjack
Summary

We tried deep water Jigging using Alutecnos Blue Jigging rods and Daiwa Saltist Nero Reels 6500 (supplied by Rokmax) with 50 lbs braid line and 300/400 gm jigs, each with double assist hooks, (supplied by Rokmax).

The first fish was caught on a Halco GT Jig (which is available from Rokmax) and this has an exceptional action when snatched, it was a 25 lbs Amberjack caught in 140/160 mtrs after only about 5 minutes work and that was followed shortly after by 35 lbs specimen in about 250 metres. Both fish fought well and the guys had good sport bring them up from the depths.
