    100 Pound Amber Jack Fight And Much More
The greater amberjack is a prized game fish because of its size and sheer strength. There is a reason, a very good reason, why this fighting machine is known as the 'Donkey of the Sea.' This 'Donkey' can put strong, very strong, young men on their knees. It did not take long for fellow Florida native, Mr. Daniel Kemp, Sarasota, Florida, to find out, first hand, the awesome power of this power-house. Catch the big fight 7:50 minutes into the video at the end of this report.
Friday, 3:00 P.M. the Florida Fisherman ll is ready and so are we:

Let's go:

Trolling on the way to the far off Florida snapper/grouper banks often requires A:

Talk about a fight to remember. Our resident 'Jersey Girl' is so proud of Canton, Georgia's, Mr. Paul C. Sandell. Mr. Sandell was trolling hundreds of yards behind the Florida...Team-Work:

Friday Evening brings the best meat ball subs & bunk time. We simply must be well fed and rested for the fights sure to come:

Followed by:




Hope the fish are still hungry. I know we are:


Thanks, Tammy. Let's go the work:







That's one worth remembering:

Think this is a BIG boy? You have not seen anything, yet:

Looking good:

Great way to end our last overnight American red snapper trip of the season:



Nothing better on a July very hot Florida day than ice cold spring water. Tammy makes sure we always have plenty; she makes it a point to keep our Zephyrhills bottled water ice cold the entire trip:

The ladies get in on the act:




Mr. Kemp, if you think that huge American red put up a real fight...you have seen nothing yet!

Hold the camera...you are going to need it:

Let's get ready to rumble:

It's getting late and we are still a very long ways from home:

Never thought we would see the day when Mr. Sandell would like anything as much as king fish...But!



We are fished out tired and stuffed. Take us home Captain John. The best of food, plenty of snacks, ice cold spring water, and an air conditioned bunk. How could anyone ask for anything more? Oh yes! There is also fishing:







The in the money jack pot winning grouper hit the scales at 14.0 pounds, American red 16.1 & mangrove snapper 8.4 pounds:


'CATCH' the action in this short, on the water, video:

By our standards the bite was slower than we would like, regardless, we still ended up with a mountain of fish as well as a, '100 Pound Amerjack Fight And Much More.

Great report, pics and video as usual Bob. Our fishing in NJ is terrible with all the stupid regs and size restrictions, so I really enjoy seeing your reports of really nice fish.  That was a huge Amberjack that the angler caught.

Tight Lines,

   Thank you so very much. Your kind words are greatly appreciated.
That amber jack was indeed a monster:


We in Florida have also been strangled by NOAA. Thankfully we have so many different kind of fish that we always have plenty to catch & keep.
