4/7/13 Great Day!
We had Ed, Bob and the boys from Maryland on Sunday. Calm seas and a warm day for once. Fishing was slow but we were very fortunate. Bob did a great job catching a 72" bluefin that weighed 200lbs. We also caught a couple blackfin tuna. Thanks!
4/2,4 Still Slow
We had Eric Cunnigham and crew from Ohio on Monday. The 6 or so boats fishing all ran down the beach looking for the gulfstream change where the Hatteras fleet had good fishing the day before. The water had shoved way out and we turned around at 55miles without getting to warm water. The Seaducer and the Sensation both caught a bluefin in 55 deg water but the rest of us never had a bite. On Thursday we had Greg Farinak's gang from Raleigh and the ride out was bumpy head to seas out east of the inlet. Better conditions once we started fishing and we had 2 bites at once early. Young Michael did a great job to catch a 100lb bluefin. No bites the rest of the day and only 1 other boat had a bluefin bite. Lots of wind for this fri/sat and we will be back out Sunday. Gulf stream looking to be pushing back up the bank so hopefully fishing will improve. Showing a pic below of the BI-OP-SEA running sent to me by a guy fishing in an outboard. Thanks!
3/29,30 Tough fishing
We had Christopher Sunda and crew on friday and fish was very slow. We managed one bite and caught a 83" fish we let go. Saturday we had Andrew Long from Raleigh and had slick calm seas with a lot of boats fishing. We found some bluefins northeast of the inlet and fish but they were not biting. We saw fish cruising on top with tails and dorsal fins out of the water but could not get a bite. A couple boats caught fish but overall not much action.
3/24/13 More Bluefin and first Blue Marlin
We had Luke and Rick today and forecast was wind increasing to 20-25 out of east but had a pretty morning as you can see from pic. The Water had moved up from the day before and the bluefins were there thick. Tough to get bites but we hooked one right away and fought him for about 2 hours. A nice 400lb fish for Luke. Our next bite was very unexpected--a March Blue Marlin. Rick did a great job and it was a nice fish pushing 500lbs. Luke got some video so hopefully we can get that posted sometime. One more bluefin bite which we lost and left early when the wind came on. Thanks guys!
3/15/13 Bluefins still Here
We had Jeremy and the boys from Raleigh on Friday on the Legacy. They were troopers and drove from Raleigh in the morning so we got a late start. Good bluefin action right out of the gate for the fleet with multiple hookups for many. We got there about 45 minutes behind the gang and had a bite right away that we did not get. The bite fell off a bit and we fished around for hours before hooking a 85" fish which we released. Did not find our 72" and under fish for the day. Great sign of bluefins though with lots of marks on the bottom machine and fish seen on top surfing down sea. Captain Jordan will be back with the BI-OP-SEA tomorrow and we are available starting wednesday the 20th. Thanks!
Great Sailfishing to finish in Mexico!
No fishing lately with high winds and swell from the winter storm that came through last week. Was looking at some pics from previous springs and came across this one of some bigeyes we caught April before last. Fishing out of Oregon Inlet provides the opportunity to catch a lot of different species and you never know what you might catch! We have lots of days open still this spring so give us a call or e-mail to book your trip. Thanks!
3-2 and 3-3-13
We had Dennis Williamson's crew on Saturday and Wes Johnson on Sunday. Saturday only 1 bluefin caught by the whole fleet. We ended up catching some tilefish for the guys for dinner. Sunday we relocated and found the bluefins in big numbers. They were not biting very well but lots of fish on top and mixed up sizes. We did keep a 71" fish and let one go that was probably around 75". A couple boats reported fish in the 87" plus range! We have lots of days open so give us a call if you want to catch a big bluefin. Thanks!
Back home from Mexico and there a a few Bluefins being caught if anyone is interested in booking a trip. It is your best chance of catching a tuna that averages over 150lbs. I will be running my trips on the Legacy, another Oregon Inlet charter boat until the BI-OP-SEA returns from Mexico mid March. The cool weather here has me looking forward to some Spring fishing. Below are pics from late April and early May last year. As you can see both yellowfin tuna and gaffer dolphin fishing can be great. Weekends are booking up fast so give us a call or e-mail if interested.
