The offshore fishing is just incredible right now so get your stuff together and book a trip. We have plenty of days available. Give me a call at 7577496008 and we can get you set up. Heres our report from wednesday: On wednesday, we had my good friend jody along for a day with his employees. The plan was to catch meat fish and we started off trying to go get some wahoos and dolphin to the south.

We started out shallow down by the cigar and began trolling north. We had a pick at the dolphins and had 3 wahoos bites, catching 2 at 37 and 26 pounds. We had also caught 15 gaffer dolphin. We began working to the north towards a pocket of warm water along the 100 fathom line that I thought might be holding some marlin. We made a straight line troll in that direction with our dolphin and wahoo gear out and very shortly began seeing white marlin. We released two and had one that got deeply hooked with a j hook and so we put it in the box at 67 pounds.

At this point we have already had a stellar day and it is only 10 am. As we are working towards the north in the warm water, I get a call from a buddy on the radio who is 15 miles to the north of me in the canyon and he says the bigeye tuna are chewing. We pick up and run to the canyon and set out the heavy tuna gear. When we get there, we immediately hooked up with a pair of yellowfin tuna, catching 1 at 47 pounds. Then we got into the area where the bigeyes were.

The other boat was there and everyone was getting bigeye bites. We immediately hooked a double and began fighting those fish for a long time. After about an hour we had the first one at the boat and in the box at 173 pounds. 20 minutes later, we caught the second one at 223 pounds. Both of these fish were caught by lady anglers and they did a great job working the fish and getting them to the boat. Both of these fish were way bigger than the girls who caught them. We got the two bigeyes situated on deck and put lines back out and within ten minutes we were hooked up again on a single bigeye.

This fish made a huge long run on the 80 wide and almost spooled us. We were able to put the brakes on the fish and it ended up getting tailwrapped and coming ot the boat pretty quickly and easily. This fish was on the deck and ended up being the biggest one at 257 pounds. At this point, we had nearly 1000 pounds of meat on the boat and it was time to go home. We put it in gear and made the ride home to rudee inlet in the dark in slick flat seas. Final tally for the day: 3 bigeye tuna- 173, 223, 257 pounds 3 white marlin- 2 released, 1 at 67 pounds 2 wahoos- 26, 37 pounds 1 yellowfin tuna- 47 pounds 15 gaffer dolphin All in all we had virginia citations for 2 white marlin releases, 3 bigeyes, and a wahoo.

Offshore fishing does not get any better than that.
