I caught 2 octopus with a 150g jig from St. Paul's Islands. For a begginner, new boat and rod it is success. This reflects my nickname. Any comments?

hi jigging master,you have named yourself before catching any fish.it has been very long now since i posted in this forum.you will be called a jigging master when you have caught at least a dozen good sized dentex and some great amberjacks like some members of this forum did.when i say good sized dentex i mean over 2.5kg cos fish wieghing less should be realesed if possible.but no problem we will call you jigging master just the same if you wish so,but it is much harder than you think......................goodluck

Lol My friend, you know what fishing means? It means to find the fish and catch it.  You cant just ask people where to catch amberjack! 1) amberjack are pelagic fish meaning they always move around and 2) I dont think people are going to stay telling you where to go.
Go try out experiment with different places depths bottoms etc. Search the net for maps anf depth charts.

Jigs are a matter of preference, can't say there is a particular one that is king like any lure. Match them up to your rod rating and take it from there.

Different jigging styles attract different fish....the long intense stroke, short speed jigging etc....AJs seem to like the long stroke.

Look for drop offs where it goes from say 20m to 50m and jig that spot. As Lapsi said refer to the local charts and then experiment but these fish move around so a good spot today could be an unproductive spot tomorrow.

I got a decent size barracuda on a jig yesterday. Didn't know you could catch them as well.

I do appreciate you caught 2 octopus with a 150g jig but this only means that you were not jigging properly my friend , as you could do that with any hook & shiny lure for octopus even a white painted led with a treble hook you can catch them. Not that I am a professional or even so a master , So if I was yourself I would of used a jigging novice not master as Jigging is not that easy to practice you need to learn the technique. Good luck & looking forward to seeing pictures with an amberjack soon. Welcome to the forum!!
