It took us about 45 minutes on the boat before we could no longer see land in any direction. With in 5 minutes of dropping the bait, Cindy and I each landed a 20-25lb Amberjack in the Atlantic Ocean while in Key West. 8/06.
These fish were 100 to 180' down and put up quite a fight. Not really being fisherman, it only took about 6 fish to completly where us out.
Same pose, but different Amberjack. After the last two, we were so tired,, and getting a little green around the gills, so we headed in for the day. Note: This is Cindy's biggest fish, which was 40" long and 21.5 lbs, which she is getting mounted for "The Room of Death".
