Matador Charters Fishing Report

First offshore report of 2013 from rudee inlet for us

Yesterday we fished offshore for the first time this year. We had expected to find some warm enough water to troll in, but it is looking like trolling offshore may be a couple days out. This south wind and warm weather this week should help us out and im looking forward to the catch inshore and offshore improving dramatically over the next couple of days. We should see tuna and mahi move withing range offshore and cobia, mackerel, and sharks will move within range inshore as soon as water temps get above 70. Anyways on with the report from yesterday. Yesterday we found 63-64 degree water all over the cigar. We stopped off and caught some sea bass real quick and moved on. The sea bass were a nice class of bass, however the fishing there wasnt on fire so we set up an exploratory troll. We put out a couple baits for an hour or so and looked for maybe a stray mako, bluefin tuna, or bluefish bite. Nada. No bites. So we worked out to 100 fathoms where we set up to do a little bottom fishing and shark fishing. We immediately caught a couple nice 30-40 pound golden tilefish for the box. Then the sharks showed up. We spent the rest of the trip catching all the 6 to 10 foot long sharks we could want to catch and when it was all done, we had a couple golden tiles in the box for dinner and everyone on the boat had released a shark for a citation. It wasnt the tuna slaughter we had hoped for but nonetheless it was a good day of fishing and a good start to the season in Virginia Beach.
