September proved to be a great month for us. The weather cooperated and we only had to reschedule a handful of trips. The last week we caught a few limits of tuna and mahi. Sharks are still a problem, but most days we could get far enough away to make a catch. Looking forward to October!
The last few days have been a little frustrating! We found the Gulf Stream change on Wednesday and had great dolphin fishing. Thursday, we expected the water to move in across the Point, but it had shoved down the road and we ended up chasing a school of fish 8 miles to the Southeast and ended up with a limit of yellowfin, a few blackfin and a Wahoo. Yesterday the water turned over, 77° green, dead water covered everything from the Point down to the 400 line. Luckily we found some better water and scrapped out a handful of yellowfins and a few blackfin. Today, I opted to head down below Doamond Shoals. We had a half limit of dolphin, a few yellowfin, and a bunch of blackfin. Pretty water moved in below the Point, and the boats up there caught limits of yellowfin! Four days, four completely different conditions, luckily we found some fish each day. It looks like the water had straightened out now, we will find out tomorrow! We still have some days open this month, check out our online calendar for availability or call 252-216-9034.
Hermine tore through the Outer Banks this weekend, and the backside of the storm was packing some hurricane force winds that took many of us by surprise. The Frenzy rode the storm out in a slip at Pirate’s Cove, I’m headed back to the Fishing Center today. Hopefully the seas will fall out so we can make our trips this week. We had some great fishing before the storm, let’s hope it continues! We have some days open next week, give me a call or check out our online calendar.
