    Went out with Randy, Paul, Arlen and myself aboard
    livingwater charters with Capt. Rick from Wilnington NC.
    This was a jigging-popping trip only. The fishing was insane one drop one fish, huge groupers huge
    AJ'S, Wahoo,blackfin, yellowfin tuna.
    We jigged in about 300ft of water every kind of jig
    worked at one point i tested 10 different kind
    of jig's all worked very well.

    Awesome job!

    For the naysayers, I guess you can't catch fish on butterfly style jigs and spinning reels:rolleyes:
