Monster Amberjacks

Updated: Oct 18, 2019

IIn this episode, I take Team Treejob on a fishing adventure off the coast of St George Island leaving from Apalachicola, FL. We got to our spot and immediately hooked up on a keeper Amberjack that was about 30lbs. Shortly after, we hooked into a dozen smaller ones which we let go and then a 50 pounder hit one of our jigs. After a long fight that included nearly losing it because of a tangle with another AJ, we boated the beast. Then the fight of a lifetime started. Rafael fought an Amberjack for what seemed like an hour before we saw it. It was so big he thought it was a shark at first.

To find out more about the greater amberjack caught in this video, see the link below:
