I hooked up with Capt. Brian Sawyer from Sticken Pigz to do some filming. We started out in 59 feet and went as deep as 65 feet. The AJs were very aggressive. Most of the AJs were between 25-32 inches. No real big AJs were caught but we made up for that with the amount we boated. We must have caught 100 AJs, we even caught a few on the bottom with cut bait and we caught about 12-15 trolling but the majority were caught on vertical jigs. We got our limit of gags, AJs and put 3 red grouper in the box. We were hoping a cobia or 2 would wander up to the boat but it never happened. Brian's 1st Edited version of the video was over 40 minutes but he cut it way back to 15 minutes for the post. The video is awesome! Check it out to see an Extreme Fishing Adventure in action.
