Yesterday was a beautiful day offshore. We ended up running nearly 45 miles to the Southeast in order to find some warm water. Everything looked good at first, we found a school of porpoise and immediately hooked three blackfins! After circling around for another two hours without another bite, a thirty pound wahoo made a fatal mistake. That was the last of our trolling bites. We ended up our day by catching a few tilefish, sea bass, groupers,and porgies. A regular smorgasboard! We have another week or so before I haul the boat for winter maintenance, so give us a call and we’ll get you out on the Gulfstream!
It looks like we have a few schools of fish working down this way, unfortunately we missed them on our trip up the beach this morning. Give me a call, and we’ll get you out there to catch a few!
What a great day to be out on the Frenzy! Sixty degrees and sunny, not our typical January weather. Our first bite turned out to be a school of big bluefins. We hooked four, and after about an hour, we landed two. One was 72 inches and weighed close to 250 lbs. The other was 65 inches, and weighed 160. We ended up catching two yellowfins later on in the day. Striper fishing was excellent for the few boats that made it up to the State line. If anyone is interested in a striper trip, give me a call, and we’ll set something up
My mate Dirty J and his wife Jodie Futch had a 6 lb. 11 oz. baby boy at 5:15 today. Congratulations to them on their first child. I was fishing offshore and catching bluefin tuna. Water conditions were not very conducive for good yellowfin fishing. The warm water had shoved well offshore, and after working out 48 miles east of the inlet, I trolled my way back to the bank and ended up finding some bluefins. We ended up with a limit, one 47 incher, one 52 incher, and one 54incher. The fish weighed between 75 and 100 lbs.
Welcome to the Fishin’ Frenzy fishin’ report. A typical October catch(the picture is from a few years ago), unfortunately, this is not a typical October. Our tuna fishing has been slow at best, but we have managed to make our days by catching some tilefish and king mackeral. The good news is that the November and December are looking better for yellowfins this year, there are still plenty of fish left up north, and as the water cools down, they should be moving down into our range.
