In this week’s section of our Reel of the Week, we take a deeper look into a video that was posted by Alexandra Spring (@alexandra.spring).
“For the past five months @cjpeppe, @ed_walker_sportfishing, and myself have been chasing records on a fly rod targeting offshore species. On our way to another spot, we came across a large school of Amberjacks. After sizing the school up we played around with a few and @cjpeppe was lucky enough to hook what would soon become the all tackle fly length world record Amberjack. The Amberjack’s initial run was incredible and got everyone’s blood pumping. After a ten minute plus fight, we were able to capture everything we needed for the International Game Fish Association (IGFA), submission process and CJ released his record fish at 36 inches completely unharmed.”
