George and Lain have a guest fishing with them today and are heading around 5 miles offshore from Key Largo looking for hard fighting Amberjack. In between a healthy bit of marital bickering, they manage to fill the live well with Blue Runners and Grunts which are ideal bait for Amberjack. As the more experienced offshore fisherman, George is playing Captain today and positions the boat on one of the many wrecks in the area and gets the guys straight onto the fish as guest angler, Bill quickly hooks and starts fighting one. The fish here average between 30-50lb and pulling one up from over 200ft is quite a workout as Lain is also soon to find out. After an exhausting fight, Lain brings a cracking 40lb AJ to the boat and is mighty relieved that the battle is over. This just isn't a fish that you can keep on catching and Lain looks completely beat, much to George's amusment, but Bill then hooks into another large Amberjack and another hard fight ensues. This has been a great day's fishing and the guys return to the dock to enjoy a fish taco or two.
