Matador Charters Fishing Report

Great offshore fishing LOTS of mahi

Lately the wind has been blowing and it hasnt been good weather to fish. We have the boat at pirates cove marina in nags head north carolina for the next two or three weeks and have been doing a little bit of offshore fishing down there before we bring the boat back up to our home in virginia beach for the summer. Yesterday, the weather broke and we weree able to make it offshore. Our target species yesterday was mahi mahi, and it was pretty easy fishing. We fished for dolphin for about the first two hours of the day and caught about 40 nice sized dolphin starting as soon as we put lines in the water. We caught them as fast as we could go and then left them so the rest of the fleet could get a shot at them. Then we got away from the area where the dolphin were and went a little deeper to see if we could find a yellowfin tuna or two. Nothing but more dolphin. Towards the end of our dday yesterday, we stopped and did some deep dropping and caught a nice mess of blueline tilefish to finish off a nice box of fish for the day. There have been some yellowfins around and yesterday there just werent many. We look forward to getting some yellowfins in our upcoming trips. Very few yellowfin tuna were caught by the fleet yesterday, but there were several blue marlins seen and caught yesterday by the fleet which is another good sign that spring is here and good fishing is here for the next couple of months.
