Matador Charters Fishing Report

Finally some yellowfins!

Friday and saturday we had the same group. Celester Grey and the group from FishOn events had us booked for what the weather would prove to be the last two days we would spend in Oregon Inlet this spring. Friday, we would fish to the north and look for tuna. We started around the point on the warm side of a change in 70.5 degree water. A couple boats in the general area were getting hit and we circled around and waited our turn. After about an hour, we got hit and caught 2 out of 3 nice yellowfins. The bites there sort of dried up soon after and a group of boats to our north were managing a slow pick. We put the greenstick out and began working north through some 67 degree green water and managed to get hit again there in 150 fathoms on the 600. That time we went 4 for 5 on smaller 30 pound class yellowfins. We continued working north and found a lot of boats and not a lot of bites and we ended the day catching a very quick limit of nice tilefish on one of my holes up there. Altogether we caught 6 yellowfins and a limit of tiles on friday. On Saturday, we decided to head south and look for dolphin. The forecast was wrong and whereas very little south wind was forecasted, it blew 20 all day and rained a lot. We stuck it out and stopped immediately on the rocks where we caught a bunch of jacks. Then tried a deep hole for groupers, but the current was on it and made it impossible to fish. We trolled north, picking at a couple of gaffers before settling in on the 1250 rocks where we picked at the tilefish through the sea bass that we had to throw back, but were pretty thick. We finished the day off with a small catch but from what I heard from the fleet there it sounded like we did well considering the conditions. We returned to the dock at pirates cove on saturday and dropped our charter off and steamed back to Rudee inlet during the ninght so we can begin our season here. We are now in rudee inlet for the summer and ready to book your virginia beach fishing charters.
