Avoiding jewfish while bottom fishing
I’m getting really frustrated bottom fishing. Every single time we hook a good bottom fish we get nailed by a jewfish which takes it. Never the trash fish, always the quality fish. For every decent bottom fish in the boat we lose twenty to jewfish. I am not exaggerating. Sharks and dolphins are also a problem but not as bad. This is on the southeast Atlantic coast. Is there anything I can do to deal with this? I’m to the point where I’m ready to throw the **** rods in the water and quit.
