This is my first trip jigging in deep waters from 100 - 140 meters consistantly. Stamina plays a major role on long range trips like this, especially when you're fishing during the day and night with only 4-5 hours of sleeping a day. From the beginning, I've jigged from the morning until the following night which result in puncturing myself, which in turn also affected my jig presentation hence the bad catch rate.
My main target on this trip was to land an Amberjack regardless of any size. Albeit I did not hookup any, I was quite dissapointed with my other catches as none of my fish landed weighted more than 7kgs. On a better note, I've landed my first dogtooth tuna, ruby snapper, yellowfin tuna which adds up to my species tally. On top of that, it was a pleasure fishing with new faces and making new fishing friends to talk cock with.
Lessons learned from my first long range deep trip are never overstress yourself, take plenty of rest whenever your hands n fingers feel tired, have enough sleep and do not OVER EAT ! It tends to make you feel more tired and wear out faster, to me at least. Hopefully next year I'll be back to Luconia again to continue my hunt for Amberjack.
