Another pretty day in the ocean. Thanks Brian. Enjoy the Tilefish!


Brian McAndrew, his son Thomas, and his buddies joined us for a pretty day on the ocean Wednesday. The dolphin got after us early in the wide open and we caught a 37lb citation plus several 15lbers. Later in the morning we had some sailfish action in the baits. They were not very aggressive, we did get a shot at 1 or 2 of them but they didn't come tight. We finished off the day bailing a real pretty class of dolphin around a piece of floating 8x8 timber. Thanks

White Marlin

The white marlin bite has been good out of Oregon Inlet recently, so we rode along on the Marlin Gull for a day. We had a good time taking shots at these fish today. Alot of them were coming to the teasers and flat lines.

Alice Kelly Release Tournament

We had the pleasure of fishing the Alice Kelly with the F.I.N.S.S.S team this year. We caught 2 sailfish and a few dolphin. Glad everyone had a good time! Cheryl, if you have any pictures, send them to me at Look forward to next year.

What a difference a day can make! We started off in the tuna hole hoping to just get a handful of bites. Another captain reported a change 8 miles outside of us, so we quickly aborted the tuna plan since it has been so slow and ran to it. We found a big grass line and immediately caught a 25 lb dolphin and then picked our way down it the rest of the day. We ended up with 8 nice 15-25lb dolphin and 30 bailers. 260 lbs of dolphin. Thanks

Charlie and his buddies from Jersey wanted to catch dolphin today. We found a beautiful grass line southeast of the inlet. We fished it hard along with 3 other boats and there was only about a dozen fish caught on it between the 4 of us. So, we went to plan B and tried some bottom ground down there that we have never tried before. It paid off, and we caught a limit of big seabass and blueline tiles. As soon as your rig hit the bottom you would get a bite. Doubles of bass and tiles were common. 265 lbs total
We broke our second camera of the year today too....arggh. Charlie, if you have any pictures from the trip send them to me and I will get them on the site. Thanks

Quality not quantity. Dr B, and his buddies wanted to catch a tuna, so we gave it the effort, but the tuna bites were few an far between for the fleet. We did catch one nice 60 pounder on the bar. Along the way his niece's boyfriend visiting from the cheq republic released a white marlin. This was his first trip in the ocean! We also caught a gaffer, a few nice tilefish, couple of seabass and released a reef donkey......Thanks

Make up trip today. Our group was from as far as South Carolina up to Pennsylvania. We had at least 10 tuna bites today and held onto 4 of them and caught a dolphin. Nice class of fish and a pretty day. Everyone went home with plenty of meat. Thanks

On Thursday our group needed to be back at the dock early, so we ran to one of the towers 20 miles out. The amberjack fishing was real good. We caught them on high speed vertical jigs and topwater plugs. At least five fish were fighting to get the top water plug every time it hit the water. All these fish were in the thirty to fifty pound range too! Great sport on the spinning rods! Thanks.
The boat in the picture hit the bridge pilings on the way out this morning. The main span has been real shallow recently, so we have been using the south span. There was a work barge in the south span which blocked half of the opening, not to mention the current.

The day started off with REAL thick fog. Once we finally cleared the inlet and got into the ocean it lasted for another 15 miles before it burned off.

Beautiful day on the water. We went south again and found some grass. 30 gaffers and 2 blackfin tunas. Fun day.

Check out the pictures of the kayakers in the gulf stream......hmmmmmmm.
