Saturday, November 30, 2013: 11/30 Hatteras Offshore Fishing Report
Conditions weren't "optimal" today, but we still had a good ol' time with these rednecks!
I rolled the dice and headed WAY south, in hopes of lucking up with some wahoo action. The day started out promising as we landed a 45 pounder as we were setting our lines out! Unfortunately the water got ugly and cold and that was our one and only wahoo bite. We did have a nice battle with a sailfish, but after a bunch of jumps and a few minutes on a TLD, he got away. I got us in position for some bottom fishing for the last hour, and with only two guys fishing, I'd say they did pretty good. Thanks again Jamie, enjoy the fish!
Saturday, November 16, 2013: Wahoos In The Morning, Blackfins In The Afternoon
With a slick calm forecast, I was a little surprised at the southeast swell we had to run in to this morning. Fortunately the wind stayed pretty calm and the day turned out to be really nice.
We started out in pretty good shape, two wahoos within the first hour of fishing. I knew my guys wanted some tuna, and the reports sounded like a good sign of blackfins to the east, so I trolled that way. Doing so committed me to that plan and nixed any thoughts of bottom fishing later in the day. Unfortunately things settled down and we only caught a couple of blackfins. Still, it was decent fishing for the boats that were there earlier. Happy Birthday Chris, and I look forward to seeing you back in the spring!
Saturday, November 09, 2013: November Blues
Today we had the variety pack again, plus awesome weather!
We decided to go for the "sure thing" to start with, so we took advantage of the slack current and slick ocean and caught our limit of triggerfish. After that we bailed some dolphin, caught a couple wahoos and released a 250 pound blue marlin. I was pretty excited about it! Thanks for another great day offshore Keith!
Wednesday, November 06, 2013: 11/6 Hatteras Offshore Fishing Report
In my opinion, today was kinda miserable, weather wise. We dealt with a northeast swell, 20 knots of wind from the southeast and it rained all day.
Fishing was kinda scrappy but we did manage to put together a nice catch to the south. We landed our only wahoo bite, a 35 pounder. Luckily we ran a cross a couple schools of bailer dolphin and boated 30 of them. It was a challenge in the rough seas but we spent the last hour or so bottom fishing and the triggers were biting. We caught a nice pile of them before wrapping it up for the day. Thanks Steve!
Wednesday, October 30, 2013: Another Mass Murder
My buddy Dave showed up with "the crew" and wanted to see the live bait king fish action we've been having. Well, we showed it to him!
The action was as good as it has been, and we limited out by noon. I weighed everybody a citation fish (30 pounds and over), the biggest was 36. We also caught two citation blackfins, a 27 and a 30 pounder. We topped it off with a nice mess of bailer dolphin. Still, as good as the fishing was, I don't know if it topped the sunrise. He makes a new one every day! Thanks for a great day offshore Dave!
Tuesday, October 29, 2013: Two Guys, Two Limits!
Today I had the pleasure of fishing with a father/son duo. Scott and Scotty had plenty of action!
We caught some live bait along the beach this morning and headed out after the kings. It was pretty hot fishing again, and we caught our 3 per person limit soon after 9:00. I don't know how many 30 pounders we had but I weighed what looked like the biggest two for their citations and they were 37 and 38 pounds. I headed offshore to spend the rest of the day looking around and wound up catching a limit of dolphin, one blackfin tuna and pulled off a couple of wahoos. Thanks guys for a great day!
Monday, October 28, 2013: Gettin' Even
These guys are regulars, to say the least, and they LOVE catching kings! They also love catching dolphin but were unable to make their annual June trip this year...so we made up for it today!
We "live bait" fished for our kings, and it was as good as it gets. We had our limit before 11:00. The majority of the fish were between 20 and 30 pounds, two of which made the citation mark, Jay's 31 pounder and Matthew's 40 pounder. We jogged offshore since we had so much time left, and wouldn't you know lucked up and found a nice school of bailers. We caught close to 40 of them before they quit biting! Thanks again for another great day offshore!
Sunday, October 27, 2013: Catching You Up
I've had a lot going on since my last post. We commercial king mackerel fished a couple of days, one of which we did ok, the other was slow. I've been fishing flounder nets in the sound, so that has occupied a few mornings, and has been productive.
We had a charter yesterday and today. The wahoo fishing has been pretty scrappy. Yesterday we were 0 for 3 and today we were 1 for 4 or 5. We spent a couple of hours bottom fishing today and did extremely well catching triggerfish. I got a report of some good blackfin tuna action to the east yesterday. Thanks for a fun day offshore David!
Saturday, October 19, 2013: Chandra's Big Fish
Ok, so, call it lady luck but last time Chandra fished with me, she caught a 500 pound bluefin tuna. Today she was first in the chair, but had no idea what she would be in for!
At 8:15 she was hooked up to a blue marlin. At some point during the fight the fish unfortunately got tail wrapped. What should have been a 30 minute battle wound up lasting for 3 ½ hours. I've gotta admit, Chandra never gave up or suggested handing the rod off. She did an outstanding job. By the time we got the fish squared away and back to fishing, it was noon and I had a lot of catching up to do. I covered a lot of ground in a short amount of time, but finally found a "mega school" of dolphin and limited out in one stop. It was late in the afternoon, but I had one further mission to accomplish. I wanted to find a wahoo for Taylore, and in the bottom of the 9th (no pun intended) we got it done with a 30 pounder. It was a beautiful day offshore. Thanks guys!
Friday, October 18, 2013: Repeat Performance!
Today was almost identical to yesterday, which was fine with me!
Day #2 with Jim and the guys. 3 for 5 again on the wahoos. One stop shopping on our dolphin, and I mean they were HUNGRY! We only caught one blackfin today, but we pulled off a couple of sailfish to make up for the tunas we didn't catch! Great weather, great guys and great fishing!TEST
