looks windy for this weekend, but I am still planning on going out Sunday and Monday. was hoping for a Saturday evening trip but looks like late afternoon winds might be blowing hard.
I just picked up a few of those Mustad inkvaders octupus jigs looking forward to trying those out. :)

Do you go north or south for the lings?
You seen the reports of BFT being caught out of Monterey?

We cheat. Lol. We deep drop into 850 to 1000ft of water with an electric reel. We have special rigs with glow lanterns and glow rubber shrimp. Takes about 10 to 12 lbs of weight. Looks like a huge sabiki rig. His eyes suffered decompression from coming up from 875ft.

That’s deep . We are not allowed to fish that deep anymore in CA. Spear fishing them must be a rush.

It can be a fight. Amber jack will almost pull your arm out of the socket if you don’t know what you are doing. Sometimes we have to cut their throats to get them under control. I am a little wiser in my old age. Lol. I don’t shoot the amberjack unless I have help. Gotta check for sharks first before you shoot. Got this pic off my GoPro a few years ago. I was down 110ft in the Gulf of Mexico off ft Myers.

Lol. I wish. I can’t do what I used to do anymore. I’ve slowed down a lot in the past 10 years. I still eat right and stay active.

Not bad fishing 3 keeper lings and some nice rockfish. Winds picked up early. No worries for the Grady. But uncomfortable for the fisherman. Good trip all in all.
