Looking for AJs, but found APs.
Took a day run out of SSM yesterday, got around 50 miles and the water looked awesome. Lots of life (Flying Fish, birds, purpose) so we started Trolling. 30 mins in the shotgun gets hit, a Joe Shute w/Hoo daisy chain. We must have had a week point in the braid as the main line parted quick into the fight. not sure what the fish was but after losing the fish, lure, chain, bird and top shot mono we deicide to make a drop for some AJs. Sent down a few Hard Tails and hold on..... we lost the first after a 20 min fight, lost the second on a jig, but got the third. To our surprise the AJ looked a little funny in deep color. Few seconds later my first African Pompano. Man can these fish fight. Really warriors.
Thanks Fergus for a Fun day!
