Recently I had the pleasure of fishing with Cameron Ripple and Capt. Jimmy Nelson who is the host of Extreme Fishing Adventures.
Jimmy and I had talked about doing this trip for a while; stars aligned, schedules were cleared, the weather was perfect, and Mike Wior of The Collective Tattoo added the finishing touches that made this trip possible.
We met up with Jimmy at the marina at 7 am, gassed up, and headed out; A few hours later we were hooked up to fish 70 miles offshore. The game plan was to stop at a few reefs and do vertical jigging. We used Hookher flutter jigs which worked like a charm.
Here are the pics:
Cam dropped a flutter jig down to see if there were any reef donkeys around. The answer was obvious.
And cam was stoked
Jimmy got in on the action
We got the cameras ready
The kayaks went in the water
The bite was on (Mike T doesn’t mess around)
Mike hooked up
And got pulled around
Back and forth
The grouper showed up
On our last stop we hooked a hog fish while jigging; time to bring out the spear gun
