“Super Grouper” Jigging Trips Recap

Posted on: May 11th, 2012 by GregS No Comments

The ‘Super Grouper’ vertical jigging trips were a success.  Hard working Captains Wayne and Chris and dedicated jig fisherman turned what was a slow weekend for many Miami anglers into productive days on the water.  Four 10-hour days aboard the Reward Won produced a mixed bag with several species of grouper (snowy, scamp, gag, red), mutton snapper, golden tilefish, almaco and amberjacks (to 42lbs), blackfin tuna, bonitos included, all on jigs.  Experienced jig fisherman from New York and Oklahoma City joined the local “Miami Wrecking Crew” hitting spots from 100’ to 490’ .  Fun was had by all, aided by Capt. Wayne’s contribution of a keg of Presidente.

Some higlights include:

  • Day 1:  4 snowy groupers of 8, 10, 13 and 18lbs!
  • Day 2:  5 scamp groupers, 1 snowy, 3 ‘keepers’ and Jomal’s 42lb AJ
  • Day 3:  10lb Golden tile, Gag grouper, multiple 35-42lb Amberjacks
  • Day 4:  13lb Red Grouper, multiple Jacks
