Stuart Fl. Reef And Wreck Fishing Charters for Amberjacks:

Excellent in smoked fish dip, good on the table and pound for pound one of the strongest fish we have, over the last 10 years Amberjacks have gained a lot of popularity with our South Florida fishing charters. AJ’s are the knights of the wrecks, and guard their residence with vengeance. Good luck dropping a big live bait to the bottom and getting it back up to the top when these brutes are on guard. Large schools of big, aggressive, great fighting, and good eating fish stage over Florida’s reefs and wrecks year round making Amberjacks a great “go to” fish.stuart fl. fishing charters, bottom fishing charters near palm beach

First time anglers, birthday boys, bachelor parties, pro athletes and “Leroy Brown”… will be beggin’ for mercy as they battle these brutes, or as we call them “Reef Donkey’s” which are common in the 25 to 65 pound range with a 142 lb Fl. record caught just south of here. Fishing big live baits or vertical jigs are the preferred methods of targeting these studs and since your holding the rod, when you get a bite…  YOU KNOW!

This might be one style of fishing where it’s more fun to not be the angler. You’ll be laughing so hard you’ll get cramps, as you watch your friend’s grunt, cry and shout profanities they fight these amazing fish. A tug o war with over 20 pounds of drag, on 50-150 lb. class bottom rods, spooled with 80-100 lb braid, bent in half like an Ugly Stick commercial. Keeping them out of the bottom or the wreck is the main mission, so the first 20 feet is the most important. After that a steady winching to the top will get them boat side for pictures and either a release or the smokehouse.
