Last weekend I got a call from Dean who wanted to take his son and his buddies out for some offshore fishing before they all went off to college. He requested nice weather, a nice boat and some fish that would wear out the boys and I had just the plan. Sunday we ran offshore on the big Cabo yacht and were greeted by calm seas and sunny weather.
After some bottom fishing to put some fish in the cooler for dinner, it was time for the guys to battle some Amberjack, After some bottom fishing to put some fish in the cooler for dinner, it was time for the guys to battle some Amberjack, or as we like to call them Reef Donkeys. It was non-stop action with every live bait getting plastered by an Amberjack as soon as it hit the water. Drags continued to scream till the boys said, “uncle!”. With some fish in the cooler for their dinner and some tired arms we cruised in. It was a great day and I am looking forward to getting out there again soon to battle with these tough fish.
Till next tide, get out there and get your offshore fix in!
