6/30 Art Braswell

We had the pleasure of fishing with Art Braswell and his crew from Yorktown Va on Thursday. We started off catching bailer size dolphins with a few gaffer size fish mixed in along with a bonus sailfish! The kids did a good job putting them in the box. There were a few tunas being caught by the other charter boats nearby, so we switched gears and put the bigger gear out. Our only bite was a hungry white marlin….glad we got him! Thanks

Catching Up!

We've been slacking on the fishing reports a bit! We fished the Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament in Morehead City earlier this month. Congrats to the team on the Double B!  Thanks again to the Finsss team for fishing the ladies tournament with us. We had a blast! 

Our dolphin fishing has been good for the last couple weeks out of Oregon Inlet.  There has been a few yellowfin tunas and a some billfish around too…..

The fishing and the wind picked up for our trip Tuesday. Thanks to Jesse and his buddies for fishing with us today. They did a great job dealing with the choppy conditions. We caught 25 gaffer dolphins and a few bailers today on a temperature change with eel grass on it. Thanks again, see you next time.

Weekend Fishing

I cant say much for the meat fishing over the weekend. The conditions were beautiful, but the fish weren't there in enough numbers to support the amount of boats that were fishing. We did catch a few tunas and some dolphin on every trip. The weather was perfect and our crowds had a good time

The good news is that the boats fishing south of us in Morehead City and Hatteras have had real good dolphin fishing, so they should be moving our way.  There were also 20+ blue marlin seen yesterday by the fleet of boats fishing out of Hatteras.

First Billfish!

Friday we caught our first billfish of the year. After catching a limit of bailer dolphin and a couple of 40 lb yellowfins, we hooked a 200 lb blue marlin on 30 lb test tackle. One hour later we released her unharmed! Thanks!

Saturday the meat fishing slowed down a bit for the fleet. We did catch our first white marlin of the year……Thanks for checking in.
