Rod Bending Amberjack action!!!!
Have you ever heard of an Amberjack?  Most folks commonly refer to them as AJ's for short.  They are some of the hardest fighting fish you'll ever encounter.  Not only do they pull hard but they are fine table fare.  This time of year we dont get many opportunities to get out in the gulf in our bayboat.  So when Capt Willie told me he wanted to take his brother out to catch some AJ's in this little weather window we had.  I was stoked.  The three of us loaded up Thursday morning and headed out.  We started by loading the livewell with live bait in anticipation of what was to come.  After we had what bait we needed we pushed south to the AJ hole.  Once we arrived, it didn't take long and we had a double hook up of big AJ's.  This kind of action kept up for the rest of the day, landing AJ after AJ after AJ.  We also caught a lot of nice Trigger fish and Red Snapper, which are currently out season and had to be released.  Needless to say we were able to skip the gym after tangling with all them Reef Donkey's all day!!!  If this sounds fun to you, give us a call next time your in the Pensacola, Perdido Key or Orange Beach area.  Captain Willie or myself will get you out on the water for some rod bending fishing fun!!!!  Check out our youtube channel for some videos of our fishing adventures, including footage from our Amberjack Trip!!!  
Until Next Time,
Capt Miles Howell
