Tuesday, July 29, 2014: 7/29 Hatteras Offshore Fishing Report

It was a cool northeast wind today which made it quite comfortable offshore, but the fishing was a little scrappy.

There was a little marlin flurry this morning, and I gave my guys the choice of chasing a billfish or chasing a wahoo. They picked wahoo, and we wound up landing three and a bonus small gaffer. Great to see the wahoos around. Thanks Pat!

Saturday, July 26, 2014: Mongo's Monster

Today was a great day, if you like slick calm days.

We found a nice edge in the deep with some dolphin on it. They weren't the most cooperative, but they did good enough. We caught half a limit, including a couple of big gaffers. Mongo landed a 42 pounder to earn himself another citation. We skipped baits for a while and then shallowed up to search out a wahoo. Finally, just before quittin' time, we got the bite and Lee angled him to the boat. Thanks Jerry for another great day offshore!

Friday, July 25, 2014: Bananas

Fishing was a little scrappy today, and our luck wasn't at an all time high.

We found a couple of schools of dolphin but they weren't overly cooperative. We had a few trolling bites, including a wahoo that got away just out of Mikey's gaff reach, and a sailfish that zipped a flatline but never came back. Middle of the day I saw a bunch of bananas go over the side, but I think it was too late. Still, we wound up with a mess of dolphin and plenty for a few good meals. Thanks Gary!

Thursday, July 24, 2014: Short Day

We didn't have much time to work today because the "little guys" were seasick as soon as we started fishing.

Fortunately we got some bites pretty quick and had just enough time for everybody to catch a fish before heading back in. Short day but still some great groceries for the grill! Thanks Steve.

Wednesday, July 23, 2014: More First Timers

My buddy Peter showed up with a bunch of newbies today, and even though it was a little like boot camp, we whipped them in to pretty good shape!

It took several stops but we managed to catch a limit of nice bailers, with a few gaffers mixed in. We only had three wahoo bites today because we spent a lot of time out in the deep, but we did land two of them. The highlight was David's sailfish, that put on a great show and posed nicely for a photo before being released. Thanks for another great day Peter!

Tuesday, July 22, 2014: Lots Of Laughter!

Today we had another group of Godspeed first timers, and I know they had fun because they were laughing all day, especially when we were bailing dolphin in the rain!

We had a mixed bag today but overall fishing was GREAT offshore. I don't know how many wahoo bites we had today, probably a dozen or more. We managed to land five...pretty happy. We didn't really concentrate on dolphin fishing but I found some grass patches and we got a nice catch of big bailers plus a couple of nice gaffers. Still happy. We had three sailfish encounters today and Sarah got the job done as she angled hers to the boat successfully for a photo and a release. Great job Sarah! You guys were great, can't wait to see you again!

Monday, July 21, 2014: Carter's Catch

My guys requested "table fare" rather than marlin, but we got to do both anyway!

I knew that we were gonna have an early dismissal today, so I didn't wander too far to the south. I hung around the break and we had some wahoo action. We managed to land three of our six bites plus a few dolphin. Near the end of the day Carter had a great battle with a sailfish...AND WON! Great job guys. Enjoy the fish this week.

Sunday, July 20, 2014: Father And Sons

Today I had the pleasure of spending the day with Jack, who had the pleasure of spending the day with his four sons!

The weather was perfect, so the boat ride alone was wonderful. I trolled offshore quite a ways till I found some grass patches and a couple different schools of dolphin. These guys caught on pretty good for first timers and we wound up with a nice catch. I spent the afternoon looking for a nice fish and finally found Jack a wahoo. Thanks guys, it was truly our pleasure having you on board today!

Saturday, July 19, 2014: Squally

Today Ronnie and the boys showed up, and brought the rain with them!

It was raining when we left the dock, and it rained the whole time we fished. After a couple wild rounds of thunderstorms, and more on the way, we decided to cut the day short and play it safe. Fishing was pretty good though, we had good dolphin action and there were some wahoo and billfish bites around the fleet as well. See you guys in October!

Friday, July 18, 2014: 7/18 Hatteras Offshore Fishing Report

We had a choppy northeaster to deal with today, and on top of the rough seas, the fishing was scrappy.

It's crazy how things change, but today there was plenty of grass and very few dolphin. We got lucky and caught all three of our wahoo bites, and I feel like we had the best of the wahoo action. The wind is supposed to die down for tomorrow, and hopefully the fish will be hungry! Thanks Keith!
