We worked our way up the break in roughly 70 degree water and had steady action with AJ's, almacos, albies, and assorted other jacks. I marked the blackfin on many occasions but the aj's were quicker to the jigs, and soon had the crew wanting to pull on something else.
Decided to break the anchor out and go after some jumbo deepwater triggers. I figured it was gonna be a bloodbath, however we only managed a few for the brine tank. The ones we got were big, but it wasn't what I was wanting. Put the anchor away and went on the drift to see if we could pick up the scattered triggers and found a good bite of creole fish, and very big sand tiles and short drifted a very small area and managed to put a good number of tasty beautiful creoles in the tank.
Sometimes the best laid plans don't quite work out. However, we may have fell a bit short in the jumbo trigger department, but we made up for it in the ball busting laugh all day department and enjoyed a nice quick ride back in nice seas. A big piles of creoles, a fish not many people have had the pleasure of eating, was just a bit of icing on the cake.
Thanks to the crew, I enjoyed the day thoroughly.
The fishing will run strong through the winter. Soon enough we will be rocking some killer jigging and popping rods from Spinal and some awesome terminal tackle from Guides Secret. Come on down, bend a rod, and see if you can handle the amberjack pain train !!
