Monster amberjack for 10 year-old from the UK!

During a four-week holiday in Marathon Florida Keys, Dr. Michael Scott treated his son, Luke, to a day of fishing with SeaSquared Charters.

The goal for today was to raise some sailfish.  A couple of hours into it with no action, we decided to change strategy and head to the wrecks.  Just as we  were moving on, a sail free-jumped right at the side of the boat!  No landing, but Mike and Luke at least got to see one up close.

We dropped on a wreck and the guys caught two very large mutton snapper.  I then noticed a strained look on Luke’s face indicating he had something really big on his line.  He did a great job wrestling the beast to the boat and only needed a little assistance at the end, when he was rewarded with an 80-pound amberjack!


To finish off the day, we stopped on a patch reef and added porgy to the day’s catch.

The amberjack will be smoked and packaged for the Scott family to enjoy back home in Cranleigh England.

    Way to go Luke! Amberjack are tough fighters, and most men have a tough time bringing one in. Obviously these brutes are no match for you!

    Congratulations and hope you return to fish another time!
