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!
A Few Tunas
We had Beautiful weather and a few yellowfins for Mark Shekletski and crew. Although there were some bluefins caught we had bad luck and managed to drive around them. Weather is getting nice and tunas showing up so give us a call to book your trip.
Back home, Bluefins snapping!
We made it back home to Pirates Cove, leaving mexico Thursday at 5:30 pm and pulling into our slip here at 12:30 Tuesday. A bumpy crossing and 25-30kt north winds up the sound from Morehead but other than that decent weather for the trip home. After releasing all those sails in Mexico we are ready to put some meat on the dock! The bluefins are back this year and have grown with the average fish around 200lbs and a few 300lb fish have hit the dock. There have also been a few yellowfins and even a couple bigeyes caught. Below are some pics from last years bluefin action. We have lots of days open so give us a call to book your trip.
Great day for last trip!
Looks like we fished our last on tuesday as the wind as set in for a few days and we will try to leave on friday. We had our owner, his son Andrew, and friend Christian and ran north and found birds, bait balls and fish on top again. We caught 43 of probably 65 bites and only fished till 1:45. That gave the BI-OP-SEA a total of 855 sailfish for the 2010 season. Great fishing, thanks to everyone who fished with us and look forward to next year!
New Boat Record!
The great fishing this season just continues. On saturday the 6th we had Rob Askew, John Lytle and gang again. We improved on Friday's tally of 36 by setting the new BI-OP-Sea boat record-----catching 55 sails in one day. Most of the fishing was around bait balls, birds with fish cutting on top. The guys did a great job and hooked many of their own fish. Yesterday we had our owner, his son Andrew and friend Christian. Lots of fish on top but not very cooperative. We still managed to catch 16. Today we had same crowd but added our owner's wife Mary and daughters. We had beautiful weather and fished right in front of Isla. We caught 19 sails, spent a good hour in water swimming with sails on bait balls, and sill were back at dock by 2:00! Only few days left then we head home. Booking trips for this spring/summer so give us a call. Thanks!
Sails still snappin!
We fished Sunday the 28th and caught 21 of 30 bites as my 8y/o Bradley caught 5 on his own! We had some days off and lots of wind then got going again yesterday March 4th. We had John Lytle, Rob Askew and friends Grant, Scuba Steve, Jimmy, and Keller. Yesterday was slow but we still caught 16 of 28 bites. Today fishing was great, lots of birds and bait balls and we ended up catching 36 of 60 bites. Should have some more pics tomorrow. Thanks!
