Default Best Bait for Amberjacks

Heading out to the Edge in a couple of weekends as well as the Oriskany. Looking to load up on AJs, Triggers, and Mingos. What is the best bait for AJs?

All help is appreciated! Thanks!

I always liked catching ajs on diamond jigs. Nothing locks you up like an AJ.

The biggest hard tails you can find. Try buck tail jigs in the tide line outside the pass, around the channel marker bouys, or around the Massachusetts.

Butterfly jigs or OTI jigs I like the lighter colors even glow in the dark ones at 200 to 225 grams. Shimano has a new shape I haven't tried yet but will soon. If you are going jigging nothing like braid and high speed reel, hang on!

What kind of reel do you use and what's the biggest AJ you've caught on it?

Don't forget porgies caught on the spot. Jigs are how I swing though.
