5/24/13 Tunas before the Front
We had Jayme Jackson, Rob Hale and crew from Raleigh who fish with us memorial weekend every year. A pretty morning and good action with the yellowfin. We left a little early with a predicted cold front and hard NW winds. It hit us about 15 miles from the beach and we had an adventurous ride but made it home in one piece. Thanks guys and see you next year.
5/23/13 Rough Conditions/Tuna Snapping!
Stuart Bates and the boys joined us today and they were very salty and ready to deal with the 20 knot south winds and endless rain squalls. A crappy ride out and tough fishing conditions but the yellowfins were biting. We got hit hard 3 times and caught 1 single as well as a couple dolphin which filled the box and back home early. Thanks guys and see you next time.
5/22/13 Great Fishing Continues
Bill Kennedy and the boys joined us again today. Despite the great gaffer dolphin fishing we had yesterday they wanted to focus on tuna and it worked out. We caught a double first thing, then 6 out of 8, then 5 out of 7. Add a 90lb Mako and handful of gaffer dolphin and the box was full and home early. Thanks guys, enjoy your fish and see you next time.
Dennis Harding and his crew from Maryland joined us today and although we had another bumpy ride out fishing conditions were great. We had fast action with gaffer dolphin and the boys did a great job with 6 or 7 at once on a couple occasions. A nice average size and the boys ended up with 500lbs of dolphin. Thanks as always guys and see you next May!
5/20/13 Good Fishing Overall
Bill Kennedy and the boys from Beaufort SC had a rough ride out with SE swell making for bouncy conditions. Tuna fishing was better overall and although we only caught 4 singles some of the boats got hit hard and ended up with 8 or 10 tunas. We also caught a few gaffer dolphin. Thanks guys and see you again on Wednesday.
5/19/13 Better Today
John Buttino and gang from New York had a little better fishing today with 4 nice yellowfins and hand full of gaffer dolphin. Thanks!
5/18/13 Slow Fishing
Chris Wall and his crowd from Virginia were very patient as fishing was slow overall. A couple boats got lucky on tunas and caught 6 or 8. We ended up with only 3 yellowfins for our efforts. Thanks guys and hope for better next time.
5/17/13 Tuna Wham
Tony Gower and his crew from his drywall company in Virginia Beach had pretty weather today. Hot water had pulled way out from yesterday and dolphin fishing was scrappy. We managed a small catch then fished our way back up and in to just below the point where there had been a scattered tuna bite. We were very fortunate to be in the right place at the right time. The yellowfins popped up chasing flying fish right off our bow and we got hit hard. Ended up catching 6 of 8 bites. Added another pair after that to round out a great day. Thanks guys.
5/16/13 More Great Oregon Inlet Fishing
Today was one of those days that started out bleak with 20knot SW winds, big seas and very little action in the am. Capt Brynner on the Smoker and I fished up the Edge and found a temperature break/color change. We had a few bites right a way and it just got better from there. Soon the grass came to the change and we had great action with bailer and gaffer dolphin. We then left the change and fished back to the edge where we caught a couple blackfins. I then found some Hammerhead Sharks and Yellowfins balling bait on top and got hit by the yellowfins. Sharks at 2, pulled 2 off and caught 2 over 60 lbs. A great catch for Jae Song and crew from Northern Va. Just goes to show why Oregon Inlet offers some of the best fishing in the world. You just never know what the day may bring.
5/14/13 Scrapped it Out
Travis Campbell and his crew from Statesville NC were celebrating Travis graduating NC State with Engineering degree and getting engaged! Could not have asked for a prettier day. Fishing was slow overall and we had some tough luck with tuna bites losing quite a few. We did catch a couple yellowfins and scrapped out a catch of dolphin. Thanks!
