Great Kingfishing!



Posted By Captain Dave in fishing | Permalink | Comments
My guys wanted to catch live bait this morning and try some light tackle kingfishing.

The water was cooler and not quite as pretty as it has been, but the action was still great. First bite of the day was a citation 21 pound blackfin tuna, and after that it was all kings. We had a lot of "skyrocket" bites and everybody got to enjoy seeing big fish explode on flatlines and short baits. Hopefully the drum will bite as good for you guys this evening. Thanks Mike!

Today we were after tuna, but wound up kinda stuck in the middle.

The boats that stayed closer to home had good catches of king mackerel on live bait, dolphin and a wahoo or two. We headed east to find tuna. The current was screaming and the fish weren't cooperative. A few boats fished further to the east but I decided to wait where I was and hope for a few bites. Phil caught a 50 pound yellowfin and we did land one out of a couple nice blackfins, but the bite got a little better in the afternoon for the guys that fished up. Still, we got a couple of nice fish and they owe us for next time. Thanks Mark!

This morning we caught live bait but the water was still so stirred up from the storm that we couldn't find anywhere to use them.

We ran out to the blue water but things were slow. We caught too many albacore, one king mackerel and Matt released a sailfish. There was some yellowfin action further to the east but I didn't find out about it till it was too late. Thanks Chris, see you guys next time!

Today we made up for yesterday's "misses"...and then some!

It was a little breezy this morning but my guys quickly made the decision to go trolling. We had a great morning catching a box full of blackfins and five wahoos. Erik got lucky and landed a citation 43 pounder! Thanks for a great day Doug!

Too Many Plans



Posted By Captain Dave in fishing | Permalink | Comments
I always do better when I make a plan and stick to it.

Today we went to find live bait to look for kings, but menhaden were hard to come by. We headed out with a well full of small blues but I got frustrated after fishing in a good looking spot with no bites, so I headed out and switched over to the trolling gear. It wasn't a bad plan, and we had a fair amount of action, but we didn't have the best luck today. We landed one out of five wahoo bites, three gaffers, missed a sail, broke off a white and saw a blue marlin chasing bait. Right near the end of the day I found some big kings. We caught a couple trolling and switched back over in time to catch a nice one on live bait. Thanks Ronnie!

The morning breeze was brisk out of the northwest, but it began to subside by the afternoon.

We caught some live bait and looked around for some kings in the morning. Sam caught a 27 pounder and we missed a couple others before jogging out further. Fishing wasn't red hot but we got lucky and caught two wahoos, including Ronnie's 40 pounder, and a handful of gaffer dolphin. It's supposed to be calm tomorrow...can't wait!

We had the luxury and flexibility of picking any day we wanted this week, so we chose today. No regrets!

The weather was slick calm and the dolphin fishing was great offshore. We caught our limit in one stop and went looking for something else. There wasn't much else in the blue water for us. We caught a blackfin tuna and missed a sailfish. The guys with live bait did good on the kings this morning. Thanks Jaimie!

We did have a swell from the hurricane offshore, but overall the day was pretty nice.

We had good dolphin fishing, and limited out on bailers in three stops. The wahoo fishing was a little scrappy, but we did land one out of a double. There were a few kings caught on live bait further inshore. See you in the morning Jim!

Girl's Day Out

Today I fished with a "boat load" of women!

I wished the seas had been a little calmer (and so did a couple of the girls) but we made the best of it. My first stop was a good one. We caught our limit of dolphin in one stop, then went wahoo fishing. Not a lot of bites today, I think the southeaster had them shut down, but we caught one out of a double, then pulled off a single later in the day. Had a great time...you guys are the best!

Victory!

Today I had the guys from Victory Chapel in Concord, NC. They Mopped up!

We found cooperative bailers today and did well. The wahoo fishing was good too. We landed three out of seven bites plus a nice blackfin tuna. All the guys were smiles! See you next time JC!
