Due to a tip by a friend, I headed to the east side today on a guide trip with friend Bobby Klutz on his 28 Mako. The bite was good, but due to a large amberjack, we didn't get to kingfish long. The first two fish in the box were 22-28 lb kings, and then we had doubled up. One 33 lb. king, and 2+ hours later, we had a 60 lb 4 oz amberjack in the box. We chased the jack almost 2 miles, and then fought him up and down just out of gaff range for a while on 15 lb line and a king mackerel rod. What a fight! I'll be back on the water tommorow, so stay tuned.
