We went 1 for 3 on white marlin today, and caught a few tuna and dolphin for dinner.
Today I decided to leave the tuna fleet and check out the eddy South of the point. We were overwhelmed with scattered grass, but with no tide, I made a couple drops and caught some tiles for dinner. We set back out, and within 20 minutes, we hooked a blue marlin between 350 and 400 pounds. The hook pulled, but not before I shot this video
Two sails, a few tuna and dolphin for our group today
Today I tried to stick to the north edge of the fleet and overshot the fish by about 12 miles. I can’t always land in the right spot, but by the end of the day we had a nice catch of fish
Once again, June has proven to be the prime season for yellowfin tuna on the Outer Banks. Each of the last three days we had outstanding fishing, plenty of action with tuna chasing flying fish several different times during the day. A few marlin have showed up, unfortunately, we haven’t connected on any of our bites.
Yellowfin tuna chasing flying fish is one of the most incredible sights in the ocean. We are fortunate to witness this spectacle several times a year out of Oregon Inlet. Today was one of those days. Randall Moon and his crew had a great day today, catching a bakers dozen tuna and a gaffer.
