Sea bass jigging question

98 posts in this topic

I saw you catch that fluke lol. I was the guy casting a fin-s on a jighead at the back. I got bit off by a bluefish, but no striper like I was hoping.

I checked the other reports that day, and while everyone reported slower than expected fishing, other boats caught some fish. High hook on the Jamaica 2 was 7 sea bass plus a cod I believe. Big Mohawk had limit catches. 

 

The lesson learned for me is the smaller the boat the better when it comes to inshore bottom fishing. Also I’ll be positioning myself somewhere between the stern and midship on the next inshore bottomfishing trip. I might finally give the Big Mohawk a go for the next trip out...

@Sir fisher guy I saw the slower reports as well but think you’re right about the larger boat. My thought was that the oher boats would be jam packed  but in hindsight I guess a few twisted lines is better than an empty cooler. I was about mid ship and it wasn’t much better.

 

I have a 6pk trip lined up for 5/26, feel like I’m in the hole 0-2 already and need to limit haha

I was under the impression that if the fishing is that bad the boat would give you a credit for a free trip??

I paid 78$ for 6a to 4p. I picked the Big Jamaica because they limited the trip and they have nice wide aisles along the rail and plenty of seating. As much as I like the capt and crew of the Jamaica 2, they don’t have enough seating in the cabin.

 

The “limit” for the trip ended up being 60, and when they were down to two spots like 5 days before the trip, I was afraid I’d get stuck on a smaller boat with even more people. It turned out the conditions were meh, and the other boats weren’t as crowded as they could have been.

 

it’s ok, that’s why it’s fishing not catching, blah blah blah. I’ll try to learn from my mistakes, because when you get right down to it, it was my decisions that caused my bait to land where it did....
