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
Back from the Yard! A little bottom paint a fresh buff job and now ready for some action.
Today we had a great day! We ended up killing our giant! He was 91 inches long and weighed 349 pounds. A big fish! We caught him kinda quick for the size that he was. We had him on the deck in a hour and a half. It kinda sucks that we don’t get to keep but one fish like that a year but at least we get one. The fishing is still been very consistent so if you want to wrestle a giant it’s time to go! Give me a call (252)305-7960
Today was a pretty day on the ocean. We had one bite today it was a nice one too. We fought the giant for two and half hours. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to kill him or not. He was a nice one roughly 500 pounds. We had him on the leader multiple times but wouldn’t let us get close enough to make a decision on whether he would be the trophy for the year. Finally after one last ditch run the swivel got sideways in the tip and the fish was gone. It was a great battle and nice to see a fish of that class but I wish I could have gotten a better look.
Today the weather was great and the fishing picked up! We had a lot of bites today with some tough luck. We did catch three and was able to keep a 69 incher. It seemed like we had everything happen you could think of to our fish today. We pulled a few off, we broke one off, we chaffed a couple off, and had a shark eat another off. Makes for a very stressful day when you can’t make things go in right direction. We did see something today that I have never seen before though. We seen about a 17 foot long Great White Shark swimming along with a school of bluefin. I couldn’t tell if she was eating them or just happened to be in the same area as the school of tuna. But it was really cool to see. Looks like the weather will be pretty again so look out for another report. The fish are still here so if you want to go don’t put it off till later you need to come NOW!! (252)305-7960
Today we had a lot slower fishing then we did the last couple of trips. I think the weather had a lot to do with it. It was calm in the morning when we had a few bites but by mid day the winds switched and kicked up the seas and seemed to shut the bite off. Looks like the next couple of days will have a lot prettier weather conditions so maybe the bite will pick back up.
Today we had a nice day on the water. It was my first day back in the OBX waters and it felt good to be home! We had four giant bluefin tuna bites catching three of them. We caught two of them at one time! We got to keep a fish too he was 72 inches. One fish was 250 pounds plus the other was 325 or better. Great big fish! We have days available for the next couple of weeks and the fish are here so it’s time to come! Give me a call (252)305-7960
Today Capt. Jessie ran our boat. He had three giant bluefin bites and caught one. The one he caught was a nice one! He was 88 inches long. The fish are here and it’s trying to stay consistent as long as the weather holds up. If you want to go catch a giant give me a call! (252)305-7960
