We had some great fishing on Saturday with two more big wahoo, 67# and 68# along with a 60# yellowfin and a few smaller ones. I still have a few days open next week before we wrap up our 2017 charter season if you want to get in on the action!
We have had some good blackfin fishing for the last month or so, but, other than a few trips, we have failed to find any numbers of yellowfin. Today we turned the page. We fished from the mid 800’s up to the 000’s, and caught a dozen yellowfin up to 50#, a handful of blackfin, ands 63# wahoo. Great fishing today, let’s hope for the same conditions tomorrow!
Mike Mattingly has been fishing with me for close to 15 years. He always brings a good crew and a lot of luck! We took a chance today and ran down the beach looking for wahoo and blackfin. True to form, Mike’s luck held up and we ended up with a mixed bag, blackfin tuna, wahoo, mahi, amberjack, a barracuda, and a rainbow runner for our token exotic!
- Anyone who has fished in the Frenzy has probably noticed that I would much rather fish off on my own than in the middle of a fleet. Today was no exception. After catching a bigeye on the 810 yesterday, I decided to run back up there and roll the dice. I heard the fleet catching a few blackfin about 15-20 miles south, but stuck with my game plan and ended up finding some fish on top. We ended up having a great day, and a few other boats steamed up to us to catch a few as well!
October is here, and it’s time for TUNA! The past few days we have had some great fishing, a few boats had limits of yellowfin and a good number of blackfin as well. We caught a 141# bigeye and a handful of blackfin today, and had a 300#+ blue marlin eat a tuna. We decided to sacrifice the tuna and got a pretty good show from the blue one! Great trip with a fantastic group, we hope to see you in the spring Ken, Frankie, Barry and Heidi! We have some dates available next week and have opened up through Nov 13, give me a call 252-216-9034
We headed up to the Northeast today looking for some tuna, but the water had moved way offshore overnight and we had to go a few extra miles to get to the fish. A couple of boats found the grass, and it was loaded with Mahi! One stop shopping, we caught a limit in a little over 15 minutes! On the way back down the beach we batted 1.000 on white marlin, 1 for 1. It looks like one more day of fishing before José gets here, wish us luck!
Marlin Season is now in full swing! Our charters have been treated to some really credible fishing over the last few days. We caught 5 out of 7 blue Marlin for the last 4 days, one Grand Slam, and a double Grand Slam. It looks like the weather will keep us to the dock for the next few days, I’m ready for a couple days off, then we’ll be back at it, let’s hope this Nor’easter brings in some more fish, September should be awesome!
