Cool, calm and cloudy. That described the conditions today.

Fishing was a little tough, but we pieced together a catch and there was no shortage of entertainment on the Godspeed. These guys always have fun. We found a few dolphin here and there. It was hard work trudging around in the scattered grass but we got a nice handful of big bailers and a gaffer. We fought a sailfish for a while and even though we enjoyed the show he put on, we lost him. One nice wahoo and a blackfin tuna rounded out our catch. Thanks again Marlon, see you guys next time!

We ventured out into another choppy ocean thanks to northeast winds at 20-25.

After yesterday's butt kickin' ride home, most of the fleet headed further up the line to be in position for a better angle home. I was the southern most boat and was figuring in enough time to troll up the beach for a good ride home. We found two places of dolphin and bailed a handful each time. It would have been easier to work if the seas were calmer, but my guys did ok. We pulled off one wahoo, but some of the guys had a handful of bites east of where I fished. Thanks for tuffing it out guys. Enjoy the dolphin!

Today the weather forecasts were dead on. Reasonably nice in the morning but pretty slanty out of the north by lunchtime.

You always have to keep your angle in mind. Some of the guys headed way south where the better wahoo fishing was yesterday, but I didn't want to commit to the butt whippin', if the wind picked up. We didn't have any wahoo action, surprisingly, but there were a few bites down the line. We found some grass out in the deep and bailed some dolphin around it, and later in the day hooked a triple header of sails and landed two. Great job Dave and Reggie! See you guys in November for some yellowfin!


Stormy Again

NOAA forecasted 10-15 out of the east with a slight chance of rain. What REALLY happened was southeast 20 all day and thunderstorms most of the day.

On top of having miserable weather, we were still plagued with poor fishing luck. We lost a sailfish first thing, missed a few dolphin bites then lost several other nice strikes which were probably wahoo. We finally got a wahoo in the boat at 12:45 and it took the rest of the day to land a dolphin! Thanks for hanging in there Melvin, and I hope to get you on some more fish later this fall!

Slick calm but scrappy fishing.

We would have fared better if we could have hung on to more than one of our four wahoo bites, or more than one of several dolphin bites we had...but that's fishing! The guys had a lot of fun between bites teasing each other, and plenty of that went on! See you in the morning Melvin!


Pennsylvania Codgers

Elmer and the gang are some of my favorite "old codgers". They had another great day offshore today!

We caught some dolphin first thing then went to work on the wahoos. It wasn't that fishing was all that great, but it just wound up being pretty good for us. We landed four nice wahoos and pulled off a couple more. We also had a little billfish action as Tom fought and released a sailfish. I'll see you the same day next year Elmer!

The weather couldn't have been nicer for our trip today, and the fishing was pretty good too!

This morning the talk on the radio briefly rolled over to our memories of the tragic events of 9/11, years ago. Our prayers go out to those who sacrificed and who lost loved ones on that horrible day.
I've gotta say that the older I get, the more I appreciate calm cool weather. That's what we had today. For a change, there was a good sign of dolphin, and the bailers we found were nice ones. We whacked 'em pretty good and went on looking for something else. I did see a sailfish but he didn't bite. We had two wahoo bites today and landed one of them. It was great to see the Crabills again. Thanks Jessica for setting everything up. See you guys next year!

We enjoyed a cool north breeze today and a few wahoo bites!

It wasn't off the charts action but we managed to land four out of six wahoos today. It was a "low pressure" trip, and we all had a great time. Thanks again Dusty for a great time!


Second Scratch

After Sty scratched "wahoo" off of his bucket list yesterday, I asked him what was next on the list. He said "a 40 pound wahoo".

Wouldn't you know, it was his turn in the chair when the 43 pounder bit! Great job Sty. We were the only boat out today, the weather wasn't the greatest and the scattered grass was back, making it really hard to fish. We landed two out of three wahoo bites and a couple of dolphin. See you guys in 2016!


Better Wahoo Action

Last time Sty fished with me we caught a grand slam, which wasn't on his bucket list, but he has been wanting to catch a wahoo, so we scratched that off for him today.

All four of my guys landed a wahoo today plus a nice gaffer dolphin and a couple of bailers. We dodged a few squalls but overall it was a pretty nice day. See you guys tomorrow!
