Join me for a Q & A on Sunday, Sept 14 on the Wicked Tuna page from 9- 9:30 pm. I will be answering questions about the show and fishing on the Outer Banks.
It’s been a while since I posted a fishing report, lots of things happening around here. Wicked Tuna North vs South premiered a couple weeks ago, the ratings are great, and hopefully they will be back for season two. Thanks everyone for watching! We had a three day nor’easter and I took advantage of the down time to fix a leaky rudder port. Back to business yesterday, we had a handful of BLT’s, a few blackfin, a wahoo, and a limit of dolphin.
We fished today while hurricane Bertha was approaching from the south. Unfortunately for the Weather Channel, she passed well offshore and had no effect on the East Coast. I feel really bad for you Jim Cantore, I know you love coming to the Outer Banks during hurricane season and frightening off any tourist who may think to support our local economy, but this time we emerged unscathed! We did have some swell offshore, and during the morning it reached the beach making for some great surf making the bar a bit dicey for a few hours. We caught 2 tuna and lost a third after about a 45 minute battle on a TLD 20.
