Abundance of Amberjacks

While operating out of his new & improved location, the Bradenton Beach Marina, Capt. Larry and his fishing parties have been catching their limits of amberjacks, while going offshore, out past 100 ft on the wrecks, springs and large ledges. There, they also find monster mangrove snappers, along with a smattering of yellowtail snappers, cobias, big sharks, and impressive red groupers. Check out Mike Romano below with his first amberjack caught using a live pinfish in about 120 ft offshore of Anna Maria Island. That same party also caught more amberjacks, grouper and a cooler heaping full of mangrove and yellowtail snappers.
The amberjacks have been so thick, Capt. Larry's charters have practically been beating them off with a stick! Check out George Cummings from Anna Maria Island with his epic amberjack he caught using a live pinfish in about 120 ft offshore of Anna Maria Island. George and party was on a charter during a scorcher of a day, and it seems the hotter the weather, the hotter the fishing action!
Inside 9 nautical miles [state waters] you'll be in the midst of a myriad of keeper gag grouper, plus some monsters mixed in to toughen you up. It's important this time of year to always keep a flat line out with a large, live bait. Last week Alex Simard, fishing here all the way from Italy, hooked up a serious sailfish on a live blue runner on the free line. It's a common occurence during the summer, make sure you aren't caught with an empty flat line, or- even worse, no flat line at all! So folks, keep your lines tight while the weather is paradise, because life is good, fishing is fantastic... NOW is the time to come on out and get ya' some of this awesome action!
