When I’m fishing Gulf waters I love to tie into trophy Amberjacks. Some anglers refer to them as “donkeys” but I see them as an aggressive hard fighting gamefish the is a real contender on lighter gear and in the smaller sizes, taste great!
Amberjacks definitely love to feed over bottom structure. That structure can be man-made reefs, or natural reefs. In the feature image you can clearly see them holding just off the bottom-structure.
This usually means that they are in-active and to get them to bite you have to either get a live baitfish down to them, or troll above them using a “cuda-tube” or Rapala to get the interest of barracuda which in-turn gets the attention of the Amberjacks and gets them into feeding mode!
