Weather is changing and water temps are rising. As grouper season is about to open (April 1) and Kings soon to be showing up, we ventured offshore 50 miles to wreck fish for some Reef Donkey! The Amber Jack is easily one of the great fish in the Gulf as these monsters are always ready to beat us up.
Water temps in the 140ft mark ringed in at 67 degrees mid day. We spent the day Jigging and within two hours landed about 20 AJs and Rudderfish. Heaviest weighing in at 36lbs.
The most interesting we encountered was a Giant Cobia lying Top Water.
I look forward to re hooking up with these beasts come winter time.
