Trolled up a bunch then set up on the drift and had a brown shark bonanza. Great day as the girls caught some good eats and then all got to battle some brown bruisers on light tackle. Fun day!!

Fish Head - Saturday Fluke Trip

Funny fluking Saturday - Greeted with an odd heave in the morning and ominous clouds surrounding us - Robert, Dave and Bob worked it to put together a decent catch of fluke and other bottom dwellers. We didn't crush em by any means but they managed 6 keepers and plenty of action on shorts before calling it a day due to thunderstorms. Congrats Dave on his personal best fluke! Great day on the water and amazingly we never got rained on!!

Sunday Funday Bluefin Tuna, Yellowfin Tuna & Mahi Mahi

Fun trip on Sunday - First fish was on as we were setting out the lines, got a nice surprise with a quality Yellowfin. Thought it was gonna be a great day but 5 more hours on the troll and nothing but a few boils on the spread. Went on the chunk and jig and jigged up and nice 54 inch Bluefin. Congrats Dave on your PB bluefin on a jig!!! Got a nice mahi barrage when 3 gaffers came barreling through the slick. A few bluefish and some shark sightings but that was it for the day. As always lots of fun and boxed up some good eats!!!

Fish Head - Offshore weekend report

Had Jason Todd JB Pat and Kim for a tuna sniff mission. Headed to Toms for our 1st overnighter of the year. Worked it hard but couldn't find a break. Afternoon troll produced a donut. Set up for the night and it looked good - bait life etc. Only one tuna bite which came up tail wrapped and was lost at the boat. A few mahi and sharks kept us awake all night. In the morning got up on the troll and headed south to Carteret - nothing again!!!arrg. had to change mindset and look for some bluefin. Headed to the southern bluefin grounds and lines in - fish on fish fish off after it smoked 400 yards of line and my braid backing connection hung up in the guide. swung around and hooked up again. After a great battle Jason landed a 51 incher. went looking for our under and found them on Topwater action!! Caught and released a bunch. What a daysaver!! Overall great trip and lots o laughs!!!
