7-6-10 Fished with two groups
today. First group was from PA, my home state. The
blues were cooperating around the inlet with a
couple spanish mackerel throw in. The afternoon had
a young man with a lot of energy to say the least.
Marcus you are a fishing maniac. Had a great time
with both groups, hope to see you next year.
7-5-10 Started this full day trip
trolling the inlet with all the other boats. It was
a little congested to say the least. We picked up
good blue fish and spanish mackerel for an hour then
the bite slowed down. We headed out to one of the
towers to try for some AJ's and they were not
hungry. Dropped the chum bag in and had 2 very nice
sharls show up, circle the bait and would not bite,
what the heck. Headed back in and got on another
good blue fish bite. Thanks guys had a blast.
Hoefully the weather will be better waether next
7-1-10 Three guys from PA fished
with us today. The wind was blowing and the ocean
turned agian so we stayed inside. Got on some very
good croakers and had a blast. We laughed as much as
we fished I think.
6-29-10 Wind, wind wind, stayed
inshore and hit several different spots. Had good
croaker, mullet and pigfish. Love having the kids
onboard, makes the day too short.
6-28-10 Fished with two very nice
groups today. The wind can't blow much harder
without a hurricane nearby. We stayed in the sound
and caught a lot of croaker. Several sea mullet but
not as many as last week. Towards the end of the
tide the bigger ones started to bite and we managed
to put enough in the box for a good fish fry. Thanks
guys, see you all next year.
6-26-10 Some Philly boys fished
with us today. We tried the ocean but it was too
rough. Headed back in and caught probably a 50-75
fish, flounder, croaker, sea mullet, pig fish.
Really fun day inshore.
6-25-10 Had a half day trip
looking for something big. We ran out about 6 miles
till we found some blue water and a little life. Put
the chum bag out and waited. It did not take long
and the first fish showed up. 4 ft shark. Fun on
light tackle. After we landed that one a big fin
pops up a hundred yards out. Everyone gets excited
to see a big shark coming in. Sadfully he did not
take our bait. It was a great day to be on the
water, very calm.
6-24-10 Had a full day trip today
and the ocean turned over. The water was 15 degrees
colder than yesterday, made for a rough day. We
stopped at a wreck in the morning water was 61
degrees, stopped at the same wreck in the afternoon
and it was 78. We caught tons of fish on the wrecks
but nothing much for dinner. We did manage to get
some good bluefish and a dolphin.
6-18-10 The weather was a bit
windy but we managed to hide behind some islands and
land some fish. The boat traffice was hectic,
thought some of them were going to drop their anchor
in our boat. We caught sea mullet, croaker, shark,
flounder, pigfish, spot and bluefish. Great day with
some great people, see you guys next year.
6-17-10 This after noon was the
boys time on the water. Had three generations from
KY. Proud to say the boys out fished the old men by
a long shot. Best part was a 30 minute battle with a
cownose ray. Other fish caught, flounder, pig fish,
bluefish, croaker, see mullet and spot.
6-17-10 Had a very nice family
from WV fish with me today. We stayed inshore for
some croaker and sea mullet and they cooperated. We
also caught several other species including pig
fish, pin fish, blue crab and spot, made for a great
half day trip.
6-16-10 We built a food chain !! I
love doing that. We started out catching blues and
spanish mackerel along the beach. Later in the
morning we traded the Blue fish in for some
amberjacks at one of the towers. We then headed out
and bottom fished for some tilefish and black
seabass. The bite was good then stopped all of a
sudden. Next thing you know there is a fin up behind
the boat. The hammerhead sharks showed up in full
force. We saw several and managed to land an 8
footer. We took the best photos you can while
keeping some distance and then released him. He
surged at the side of the boat and broke the rod.
6-15-10 Had the Ohio boys back for
their third time. They must just like abuse to keep
coming back. We caught a 12-14ft hammerhead two
years ago and they just keep wanting to do it agian.
We did have a great day with a limit of Amberjacks
and several released blacktip sharks, one of which
was huge but got off after a spectacular jump. See
you boys next year !
6-14-10 The weather and fishing
where both good today. Had some of the best kids
onboard I can remember. The croaker were very happy
to bite the kids baits, maybe not so much the dad's.
Thanks Nic, hope to see you guys next year.
6-11-10 Brian from KY was onboard
today. Great guy, just wish the weather and fishing
would have matched. The fog was the worst I have
ever seen in the morning. We could not see more that
30 yards. Hung out at the Oregon Inlet bridge for a
couple hours til the fog lifted. Caught a couple
fish for bait. Headed out when the fog lifted and
did manage to land a nice Amberjack. We bow fished
for a couple hours, but the fish where a little to
deep for us to hit. Thanks for going out Brian and I
will see you in Sept.
6-10-10 Had a couple PA boys come
down to fish. Slow going and then the bite started,
we boated 20 some blue fish in a couple minutes.
Time to start a food chain. We swapped a bunch of
little fish for bigger fish. The Amberjacks love
bluefish for lunch. Thanks guys see you next year.
6-9-10 Over all we had a good day
of fishing. The wind blew but not quite as bad as
they predicted. We tried going out the inlet but
that did not work well. Just too rough. Came back in
and fished the Oregon Inlet bridge and caught a bunch
of flounder. Mostly through backs but we did land
one very nice keeper. Caught several other small
fish too. After that bite slowed we headed back in
the sound and found a pretty good blue fish bite and
also caught a bunch of croakers. Great group, good
weather what more could you ask for.
6-8-10 Had a group of WV boys
today. We trolled north of the inlet for an hour
with out a bite. Did not mark any bait and there was
not a bird to be seen. We headed out to the tower
and there was lots of life there. Water was 71
degrees and the fish where there, to bad that they
did not want to bite. We had several cobia and
amberjack follow the baits but would not bite. Spade
fish all over. They will not be too lucky next time
cause we will have the bows with us. Thanks goodness
the tilefish cooperated, we got our limit and a
couple sea bass to boot.
6-6-10 Wind, waves and more wind.
We could not get far off the beach due to weather.
Thankfully the blue fish hung out near the inlet for
us. We trolled for a while and managed to have some
pretty steady action. Couple were nice size, much
bigger than last week. We had a mystery bite on a
big spoon. The drag started to scream then it went
silent. Probably a cobia but we'll never know. Water
temps are still low. Come on warm water !
6-2-10 NJ George was back on
board. We were determined to catch something bigger
today. Catching bait was pretty easy as the croakers
were biting good. After we had a livewell full we
headed south of the inlet until we had some warm
water and hit a couple wrecks. The ones with life
had some good Amberjacks on them. We caught a bunch
and kept going lighter on the tackle. They are a
blast and when you use the right equipment. The
weather turned on us and visibility went from 10
miles to 100 yards in no time, thank God for radar.
6-1-10 Had a three generation
group onboard. We caught fish bottom fishing,
trolling and chumming. Not bad in 6 hours. We caught
croakers, blue fish, Spanish mackerel, and black tip
5-30-10 Had a NJ boy in town for a
couple days of fishing. We hit a couple wrecks and
picked up several black sea bass, but only two
keepers.. The water is still cold and should warm up
any day. We dropped and got our limit of tilefish in
less than 30 minutes. Had some excitement when
around an 8 ft shark showed up right under the boat.
We tried to hook him but he was he not interested.
Same with a couple big eye tuna.
5-24-10 Like an dummy I forgot the
camera. We had a good day bottom fishing and caught
a couple blues trolling south of the inlet. We
bottom fished in the sound in the morning and did
very good on the croakers. They did not have much in
the way of size but we plentiful. They will get
bigger as the summer goes on.
5-20-10 Best weather of the week.
Thank goodness, I was getting tired of the rain,
cold and waves. We trolled outside of the inlet and
had a good bite of blue fish. Had 2 and 3 on at a
time. We where using light tackle which made it a
blast. Caught one nice Black Sea Bass on a wreck and
that was it. Wish he would have told all of his
buddies to come join him for dinner.
5-19-10 Half day trip with some WV
boys. We marked tons of bait outside the inlet, the
dolphin and birds where there too but the fish did
not want to play. We came back inside and drifted.
Picked up some small flounder and skate.
5-18-10 Wow, the weather. It
was raining sideways, I think in both directions. We
did manage to get out for a couple hours in the
morning. We went to a spot that gave us a little
wind brake but the grass was horrible. We moved back
in a little cove and picked up some blue fish,
flounder and skate. Little Jay had a good time and
was the toughest guy one board in the bad
5-15-10 Had three great guys
charter us today. The forecast looked good but as it
happens so many times the forecast was not correct.
We picked up some live bait in the morning then
headed out the inlet. It was not bad heading out of
Oregon Inlet but it turned ugly around 11:00 and the
ride home looked bad. We fished some structure about
12 miles out and picked up some really nice
Black Sea Bass. After an hour there we headed
further out looking for some Tilefish and hopefully
a grouper. The
Tilefish cooperated but the grouper did not. We
picked up our limit of Tilefish in 2 short drifts
and headed back in. We stopped half way at some more
structure and added a couple more good sea bass to
5-12-2010 Half day trip today. The
wind was kicking, around 20 kt out of the west. made
it a little rough. We trolled around the inlet and
managed to pick up a couple blue fish.
5-11-2010 Full day trip with
a group from Kentucky. We got on a good top water
bite earl in the day. The birds where pushing the
blues around and you could not stay on them very
long till they would move on. We managed to get a
couple in the boat before the bite ended. We did
some bottom fishing around the inlet and caught
several skates and rays. One was pretty big and put
up a good fight on the light tackle we were using.
Water temp was around 60 and the inlet. It will warm
up and the fishing will get much better
4-20-2010 Took a make up
charter out for some deep drop fishing. We went
about 25 miles southeast and fished in 250-300 Ft.
Fred hooked up as soon as his rig hit the bottom. It
did not take us long to get our limit of delicious
tile fish. The sea bass where cooperating too. We
would catch 2-3 sea bass for each tile fish. There
where a lot of small ones mixed in so they went back
to grow up. Around noon Brian dropped his rigged and
it took off for parts unknown. Definitely not a
sea bass or tile fish. 2.5 hours later we landed an
11.5 ft thresher shark. Not a bad start to
2010, give us a call to book a trip. 252-982-6930
