5-19-10, Mixed Bag
Today we had Michael Eveland and crew from Maryland on a nice calm day following high wind and rain yesterday. We started out the morning with lots of bluefin action, keeping a 50 pounder and releasing about 20 more. We had several makos get after our tunas and managed to boat a 145 pounder. We spent the afternoon looking for yellowfins and caught 4, we had a few more bites we did not hold on to. Thanks!
5-17, Lots of School Bluefins
Choppy weather for Brian Pate and crowd today. Yellowfins were scarce for most of us although a few guys did get hit by 4-6 yellowfins at once, just luck of the draw. We were on northern end and found non-stop action with school size bluefins. The one we ket was 70lbs and we released at least 20 more ranging from 15-70lbs. Sounds like gaffer dolphin fishing is heating up south of us so hoping for the gulf stream edge to get within our reach soon. Thanks!
5-16, Slower fishing today
A lot slower yellowfin fishing today but we did manage 4 nice yellowfins and one gaffer dolphin. Some guys were more fortunate and ended up with 10 or 12 tunas.
Box full of Tunas!
Today we had Bob Scott and gang from Maryland. Started out a little choppy but got prettier and the tunas cooperated for us. 14 fish weighed 576lbs and sent us home early. A good sign of tunas over a big area and gaffer dolphin showing up off Hatteras so should be making it up here soon. We still have some weekdays and one sunday left in May and lots in June so give us a call or e-mail. Thanks!
Short day, Nice yellowfins
Good weather and fishing on Friday for Ed Shultze and crew. Unfortunately we had a chaffed fuel line which caused us to head in early on one motor. We got back in time to have another fuel line made and back running for Saturday. Thanks to Ed and gang for being patient and we will see you again.
Today we had Jay, Steven, Ashley Mulvey and friends for a great day on the ocean. We had a good day catching 9 yellowfins with some tough luck loosing a few more. More yellowfin showing up each day with a scattered gaffer dolphin mixed in. We have plenty of days open so give us a call. Thanks!
Never would have thought we would still be catching bluefins on May 1st but here we are. Water conditions have been different this spring with colder than usual water, gulf stream not pushing in as it typically does this time of year. Saturday we had Sam Busey and gang who boated a 189lb bluefin and released 3 more in the same size class. We spent the afternoon looking for yellowfin and although some boats did find a few as well as bigeyes, we were not so fortunate. Still have plenty of days open so give us a call or e-mail. Thanks!
TUNA GRAND SLAM!!
On Saturday we had Brenton and Chuck Smith and crowd from Virgina Beach. The bluefins were still around but some bigeyes and yellowfins made a good showing as well. We had 2 bigeyes and 1 bluefin with the largeest weighing 300lbs. We also caught 3 yellowfins to fill in the cracks and give us a tuna slam(3 species of tuna in same day). As you can see we had a very large shark take the tail of the 300 pounder, did not get a good look but likely a mako or blue shark. Fishing is great right now and we have some days open next weekend so give us a call or e-mail to book your trip. Thanks!
Bluefins still Here!
We had beautiful weather and great bluefin fishing Monday for Carl Greene, Chip Herom, and Rodney Berry. The bluefins were schooled up up top, often several acres at a time, rolling and jumping. It took some work to make them bite but we had steady action all day. The fish we kept was 154lbs, and we released 5 more in the same size range. We also found some schools of 50-60lb fish and after releasing a few trolling we casted plugs on spinning rods which was great light tackle action. Chip did a great job catching the 60lb fish shown below. We have lots of days open so give us a call or e-mail to get in on some of this great action. Thanks!
Today we had Mike Fogarty, Will Crabtree, and Andrew Donovan from New York. The guys made the long drive down yesterday afternoon and were rewarded with a 275 pound bluefin.
There were some yellowfins caught today as well and we have lots of days open so give us a call. Thanks!
