42 pound Amberjack

Went out with Hoodini Charters here in the OBX this week, while on vacation. Hooked up on a 42 lb amberjack. They sure are a fighting fish. The main target was billfishing, maybe a dolphin or wahoo. This was a stop along the way at a navy tower in the water. We each got our amberjack (party of 5) in about 30 mins total. Good thing we stopped here. 40 miles of trolling in 8 hrs and not a single billfish strike. Just one 12' hammerhead hit our teaser and a wahoo strike that didn't hook up. It was a good day though...that's fishing. Came back with 153lb of fish, 45 lbs of meat. Local shops were selling it for $12.99/lb so not a bad day.
