Tablefare for the Day
I am Capt. Sal,staring another Charter with a live well full of Sardines and Cigar minnows. The trip starts with one of the Anglers hooking up with the largest Jack Crevalle I have ever had the pleasure of put of the deck of my vessel.
The day progresses with Sharks,Bomito,Barracuda and two small Dolphin.Then we topped off the day with few nice King fish. All weighing in at 15lbs and two at 10 pounds each. At one point one of the Angelers hooked up with a hefty Amberjack on a Star Deluxe rod loaded with 25lb test Hi-Vis Suffix line on a Penn 750 skirted spool reel.
Terminal tackle was a 5/0 bleeding circle hook on a five foot Seaguar flurocarbon leader. All connected with a 175lb size Sampo ball bearing snap swivel.The day ended with a fish box cooler filled with some fine tablefare! I am Capt. Sal from St. Lucie Sportfishing Charters. Boat safe & fish hard! Capt. Sal out.
Knock down drag out Fight!
That' a Big Amberjack
