I went out to do some jigging for Amber Jack and grouper with Art, Joe, and Cameron. The day was going just as planned. The AJs were everywhere. We started pulling them up right away on vertical jigs. We caught AJs for about a solid hour before we decided to reposition the boat over the rock pile to get some grouper. Art hit the auto up anchor button and the anchor rope came right up with no resistance at all. That's because the anchor was still at the bottom. None of us had a clue how that happened, but we were relieved when Art pulled out his spare. Art put the new anchor on the chain, got the boat where we needed to be, hit the anchor down button and the anchor dropped in the water without the rope. The chain broke a second time. We tried to leave the boat in gear and hover over the spot but it was just too windy. Our jigging and bottom fishing day was over very early. We were in 60 feet of water so we went in to 32 feet to try trolling for gags but got nothing. We moved a few more times with no luck, and decided to call it a day. All we got was our limit on AJs and one Spanish mac, but we still had a good time regardless of our setback and shortened day.
