Today Mother Nature showed just how strong she is. We left yesterday with the 74 degree water crossing the point and today the water had shoved offshore and down almost to Hatteras. We did end up catching a bakers dozen of nice sized gaffer dolphin. There were a couple boats that did get lucky and hit some yellowfin. Hopefully things will get right tomorrow and we gett’em in the morning. The weather was considerably better though.
Today we had some tough conditions to fish in. The water was there but the 25 knot SW wind on top of it made it hard. We ended up pulling it out though. We caught 30 plus gaffer dolphin a blackfin and a nice yellowfin tuna. The weather man said it was going to fall out as the day went on and he was right just about time to go home. Would have been nice if it was a little earlier like predicted but we made the best of it. Our guys stayed busy all day long. The way things were shaping up by the end of the day I think tomorrow will be good too. We will see in the morning.
Today the dolphin fishing wasn’t quite as good as it was yesterday but we did end up with a nice catch. We had to work at it all day and it paid off with thirty plus dolphin with most of them being gaffers. It looks like the weather will be changing for the next couple days but looks really good for Tues and Wed which we have both of those days open. If you want to get into some world class gaffer dolphin fishing give me a call at 252.305.7960. We would love to have you.
The wind finally quit blowing and the gaffers have shown up. Today was slick calm and the gaffer dolphin fishing was very good. When we finally got right on the grass line we were able to catch a limit of fish pretty fast. We caught all of them in a hour and a half. That’s really gettin’er done. I hope it holds out for tomorrow too.
Today the fishing was about the same as it has been the last few days. The conditions were a little bit tougher though. There was a 15-20 SE wind with rain that made it kinda tough to fish. We had 3 yellowfin bites and caught 1. Plus a blackfin tuna and all the albacore you wanted. Two boats did end up catching a few more tuna but overall it was slow. We don’t have a trip till the weekend but with the weather report for the next few days I don’t think anyone will make it anyway. That could be good it might give things a chance to really come together. The summer is coming fast so don’t miss out on a chance to get your feet wet give me a call. The fishing is going to get better and better. (252)305-7960
Today was about the same as yesterday a little on the slow side. The conditions are trying to improve. The water is pushing up and getting in a little more suitable position for things to really take off. It just seems like any day we will go out there and will take off. We ended up catching 3 blackfin with 3 or 4 bites to go to the boats that were fishing. There were as many albacore as you wanted to catch though. We are booked tomorrow but the weather might get us. We will see in the morning.
Today was a lot better then yesterday but overall still slow. We caught 5 dolphin, 1 wahoo, and a king. And pulled off a couple yellowfin’s amongst multiple albacore bites. There were a few yellowfins mixed up through the fleet though, so there is sign of more showing up. Hopefully things will keep getting better. We are booked again in the morning so we will find out.
Today was a lot prettier weather wise than yesterday but the fishing was still lacking. We had pretty good fishing conditions for most of the day. Water that you should have no problem getting a scattered tuna or dolphin bite in. But it seemed as if there was nobody home. There was a lot of area covered with not a lot of action for the whole fleet. We had one mako eat a teaser and that was it for our day. Hopefully something will change for tomorrow.
Today was our first day back at it since we had a four day northeaster. It was a little slow but we made the best of it. We had a 150 pound blue marlin get after our teasers and ended up eating a flatline, but sadly he came off shortly after. A little while later we had a couple of mako’s get after us. We ended up catching one of them which ended up being a throw back. After that we got into a few baffers catching 6 in all. It wasn’t great fishing but we made a day out of it and got something for dinner. Booked tomorrow so hopefully we will have a little better report.
Today was our first day back since we hauled the boat for our yearly maintenance. It was a beautiful day to be on the water. We trolled around for what has been the last couple days of a mix bag. Yellowfin and a stray bluefin. About 10:30 we hung into a pair of NICE bluefins. One on a 50 and the other on a 80. By the size of the holes I thought the one on the 50 was going to be a lost cause but we were going to try it anyway. We fought the fish for a long time. The one on the 80 we got on the leader four times before we were able to pop his head out of the water and control him a little. That took 2 hours and 15 mins to do that still with the other one on the 50 still. The fish was a monster 100 incher which is a solid 500 pounder. Seeing that the one on the 50 seemed to be an even bigger task. We safely released the caught fish and started to get after the other one. We fought him for another hour until our 90 fluorocarbon leader finally chaffed through. Bummed out that we spent over 3 hours and didn’t get to even see the fish we set out again. Shortly after we went over a good looking tuna mark as I turned around to see if they would come up they had started boiling our teaser and 6 poles came down. As quickly as it happened the one after another started to pull off. Except for one that we caught it was a 30 pounder. Glad to have him. That pretty much made our day. Looking forward to our next adventure offshore seems like things are getting changed over for our spring time fishing. If you thinking about going fishing it’s getting time to go so give me a call 252.305.7960
