Sunday, July 12, 2015: 7/12 Hatteras Offshore Fishing Report

I had Chuck and the gang scheduled to fish Tuesday but with the sketchy sounding forecast, decided to take them today.

It was pleasant offshore with a cool north breeze. The wind direction, however, made the grass scattered and difficult to fish. We did land a couple of nice gaffers and a wahoo, but Zander caught the only tuna of the day…great job buddy! Thanks again Chuck

Friday, July 10, 2015: 7/10 Hatteras Offshore Fishing Report

What started out as a windy sou’wester turned into a nice day and great fishing!

Once we hit the current, the seas calmed and the day was quite pleasant. We found a couple cooperative schools of dolphin and hammered them as good as we could. Logan even caught a couple on his fly rod! In the afternoon we got lucky and landed three wahoos as well. I just hope these guys can figure out how to cook them! Thanks Mike

Thursday, July 9, 2015: Birthday Wishes

Today was part of Jake’s birthday vacation present!

It was hit or miss on the dolphin today. We found a few small schools and bailed some, and also landed a couple of gaffers. There were a few wahoos caught, and we missed a HUGE one, late in the day. One thing for sure, there will be fresh dolphin in Michigan! Thanks guys

Wednesday, July 8, 2015: Quality!

Today we didn’t have a ton of bites but they were all quality!

I wound up fishing south of the fleet and around some beautiful conditions, just not a lot of action. Still everybody on the boat caught a quality fish including three gaffer dolphin, two wahoos and a sailfish. Congrats to Jason for his sailfish release and to Casey for a citation 42 pound wahoo!

Tuesday, July 7, 2015: 7/7 Hatteras Offshore Fishing Report

Another beautiful day offshore, complete with some meat and marlin action!

We started out on a color change that had a pretty good sign of bailers. It wasn’t “one stop shopping”, but we worked at it until our group had all they wanted. We went one for three on wahoos, and the highlight came when Alyssa landed a 175 pound blue marlin. Thanks for sharing a great day with us guys!

Monday, July 6, 2015: 7/6 Hatteras Offshore Fishing Report

The cloud cover made the day quite pleasant, and the ocean was nice too.

Fishing was a little scrappy today but we still managed to land a few dolphin and a couple wahoos. Thanks for spending the day with us John, hope to see you again sooner next time!

Sunday, July 5, 2015: Beginner’s Luck!

Today we took a marina “make-up” charter, and put together a nice catch!

The group decided on the order in which they would take turns, and as luck would have it, Emily and John, both first timers, caught the two biggest fish. John landed a 47 pound wahoo and Emily’s dolphin was right at 30. We lost another BIG gaffer near the boat, and got one jump out of a sailfish as well. Thanks for a great day guys!

Tuesday, June 30, 2015: 6/30 Hatteras Offshore Fishing Report

Today was slick calm and the blackfins bit.

My group showed no interest in looking for a marlin but seemed excited about catching blackfin tuna. We caught a pile of them and a handful of dolphin to boot! Thanks for a great trip Roy

Monday, June 29, 2015: 6/29 Hatteras Offshore Fishing Report

Meat fishing was kinda scrappy today but the bills made a decent showing.

I found out late in the day that there were a few dolphin caught in the shallows, but we were in the deep and had some action. Russell caught a 150 pound blue marlin that put on a great show and we hooked another one on a TLD that parted our 30# line. We had one other mystery bite and landed a couple of dolphin. There were several sails and whites caught as well. Thanks for another great trip Mike!

Thursday, June 25, 2015: 6/25 Hatteras Offshore Fishing Report

Nice to be back out!

Scattered streaks of grass with random schools of dolphin. I wound up searching out the deep and finally found an edge, and eventually a school of dolphin. Unfortunately we didn’t capitalize, but we caught a handful of fish on the troll. There was a scattered billfish and wahoo bite around as well. Thanks Chris!
