Trolling near the Amazon wreak

April 05, 2017

I had a son and his 82 year old dad on the boat 4 days of fishing. The first day we went bottom fishing at the off shore reef near the Amazon wreck. They caught several nice size trigger fish and a few nice snapper. There were a lot of short trigger fish as well as a lot of short vermilion snappers. I put live lines up on top and we caught 3 dolphins all around the 25 to 30 inch. The second day we trolled the offshore artificial reef starting at the 80 foot and trolling deeper I started at the southern end and with each turn moved slightly north. We had a spectacular day with 7 dolphin 3 were released due to size, 2 bonita, one was very large both released, and a barracuda also released. The third day we went to the same place lots more weed in the area as well as a lot more boats in the area and didn’t have a knock down I tried trolling deeper and we even tried drifting bait into the weed. On the fourth and final day of their trip we trolled the same place and had 9 bontia several that were very large fish all of them were released.
