One thing for certain, you can’t catch yesterday’s fish! We had limits of tuna for the whole fleet in the last few days. Today, not so much. That’s what keeps us going, you never know what will happen day to day, maybe tomorrow tuna will be jumping I the boat! We have a few days available this week if you want to get in on the action
We had a week of wind and took the opportunity to get a few projects taken care of on the Frenzy. A couple windows were leaking, so we pulled them out, rebuilt the trim, and replaced the glass. No more leaks! We also replaced the carpet to clean up the interior. Now we’re ready to fish. A couple boats fished today and they each had great catches of yellowfin. We have some days open next week if you want to get in on this action!
The 2016 bluefin commercial season has come to a close. Nick and Billon have once again done an outstanding job, landing the biggest fish of the season on Tuesday. It probably would have been a NC state record if we had caught it with a charter, but since we were commercial fishing, it’s not eligible. 669# dressed! Thanks to #Penn Reels, #Reel Easy Rods, #Makai, #Hooker Electric, #ACR Artex and everyone else who made this year a success.
The 2016 commercial Bluefin season is quickly coming to a close, and once again, Nick and Billon did have done an outstanding job. Of all the days we have spent together over the last few years, yesterday was one that I will be especially thankful for. It was Easter Sunday and we went fishing. My nephew Lucas came down to catch his first tuna with his buddy George. After getting blown out on Saturday, we made it out on Sunday and had some action. Within five minutes of setting out, we caught a doubleheader of shorts. Over the next couple of hours, we had two more double bites, each time connecting with one, only to pull the hook each time. We have been really fortunate this year, holding on to nearly all of our bites, but today was the exception. That’s why it’s called fishing and not catching! We still had a great day, and My brother Jeff and Lucas got to see what we do without having to tune into the National Geographic channel! Thanks Nick and Billon, excellent job once again!
