Siesta Key's Fishing Wall of Fame

Jigging

Jigging

Jigging has been great and will continue to be good year round. For the guys willing to make the trek we can catch big red snappers ,amberjacks,gag grouper, yellowedge grouper,porgies, tilefish, queen snapper, yellow eye snapper and even more on the bottom but dont forget about the wahoos and blackfins on the way up. We jig these species in 300-600 feet of water. we are equipped with shimano tallica reels and terez jigging rods but feel free to bring your jigging gear as well. Its a great way to fish for those who can handle it! A lot of these deep water groupers do not have closed seasons so leave the grunts alone this winter and come jigging on the Double Nickel!!
Swordfish on the jig

Swordfish on the jig

This swordfish was caught on a shimano butterfly jig in 200 fathoms of water. it was a real surprise we expected a tuna but were happy with this barely legal pup. We catch a lot of pups in the hotter months and seem to encounter more big fish in the fall and winter. The gulf of mexico sword fishery has been on the steady incline fora while now come out and try your luck with a broadbill!
