Almaco jack on light tackle
way to catch Amberjacks is deep jigging. We have
taken an old technique and combined the new technology of spectra line
and butterfly jigs. This deadly combination now allows us to place
jigs on deeper wrecks with really light tackle. Catching a 40lb
Golden Amberjack on a spinning rod in 300+ feet of water on a fast
moving jig is just as thrilling as fishing can get. Target species
are Almaco Jacks, and Golden
Amberjack. The wrecks that we will fish range from about 150' of
water and all the way out to 385'. When conditions are right we
can fish up to three jigs at a time and multiple hook ups are common.
and Almaco's are aggressive, hard hitting, fast fish that are really a
blast to catch. The small school fish are a lot of fun, but a big
Golden Greater Amberjack is truly a special trophy.
