Let’s go fishing!!!

Tuna Tuna Mahi Mahi and the Bills!!

Thank goodness the wind finally settled a bit… after several weather days waiting out the noreaster we were able to get back at today with our ace tuna crew – pretty work guys!!! The crowds before the blow chased dolphin, billfish, tuna, tiles and more plus our young offshore angler  (7 years going on 30) proved yet again that he may be small but he be mighty… Awesome job kiddo!! (As always!!)  Summer is here and so are the fish!  Give us a call – it’s time to get out there!!!

  

Mahi, Marlin, Tuna, and Tiles!

Another great week of fishing!! Thank you so much everybody…. what AWESOME groups!!!  A variety this week…. meat and bills make for tons of fun, yummy dinners, and lots of memories!!  Thank you J for the sweet boat side marlin pic!!  Give us a call… It’s time to go fishing!!!

      

Mahi Mahi and More!

Mahi Mahi has been the main course for us this past week… we had a few weather days and then a super nice class of fish with several citations!!! CONGRATULATIONS and a huge thank you to everybody!!! Lots of bill fish sightings and the TUNA are still around as well plus our first token Barracuda!! (Ceviche time!).  A big shout out to our young anglers as well… it is tons of fun having the kids with us and getting the next generation hooked on this craziness is one of our passions!  Give us a shout… it’s time to fish!

  

Time to Fish!!!

It’s that time of year yet again…. Let’s go fishing!!!  Turkey season was phenomenal – thank you so much everybody!!! The first 10 days of this year have been full of fun, fish, fishing touches on the boat update, silly weather, and awesome groups!  Thank you to everyone that helped us kick off this fishing season with a blast!  TUNA, DOLPHIN, COBIA, WAHOO, and a few BILLFISH already!!  Give us a call to get on the books… things are wide open and tons of fun on the Outer Banks and trips are booking fast!!  Time to fish!!!

It’s Waterfowl Time!!!

It’s that time of year again!!  Another Thank You to all of our anglers for a fantastic fishing season!!!  We wrapped up October with a few final Tuna trips, an awesome short duck season (quickie 4 days in October), a last minute trip out west to get our minds right for feathers, and final (never ending lol) prep for the DUCKS!!!  The November season has started and will wrap up after Thanksgiving… then the big season is here!! A huge Thank You to our groups so far – always a blast and always so much fun to kick off waterfowl season with you guys!  We will be back to fishing in the Spring… Remember inland fishing for ROCKFISH cranks up in the Spring and we will start chasing COBIA in May!!  Happy November to all!!!

It’s officially Fall!!

Our hot summer months have slipped into cool Fall mornings, crisp Carolina blue skies, and continued awesome fishing!  The weather kept the Fistful at the dock several days the last month (definitely a sign of fall!) but that just gave us a good excuse to get some work done on our renovation projects for the lodge (Thank you Brandon and KB for all the help!!) and slip out for some of the BIG Red Drum!! (Pretty work E and Congratulations to Chip and the boys!!!!!)  As October approaches we look forward to more consistency from mother nature and are already seeing our tuna show!  This is also the time of year we begin our transition into waterfowl season… Geese and Teal for September with Duck Season soon to follow!  A bittersweet time… we hate to stable the Fistful but are so excited for the next season!!!  We will be fishing through much of October and have some days open for anyone looking to get out there!… The Blackfin tuna are here and the Yellowfin are typically close behind.  Give us a call!!

      

Awesome Summer Fishing!

Summer rolls on and the fishing continues to be awesome!  Mostly Offshore this past week – Dolphin (Mahi Mahi), Tiles, and Billfish are on the main menu with a few Tuna, some Amberjack, Wahoo and one Giant Pink Flamingo (what tha????!! Pretty work Jess!!) thrown in!!  Nearshore trips are smacking the Ribbons plus Spanish and King Mackeral, Drum and an occasional Cobia!  Don’t miss out… late summer/early fall is typically fantastic fishing and the scorching heat starts to settle down into super comfortable weather… September is BILLFISH season and the marlin are already starting to show!! Let’s go fishing!!

   

Quick Catch Up

Quick catch up!  The summary is Awesome fishing and Awesome groups!!  Between a website re-do, boat swapping/upgrading, and a thankful near miss with the last hurricane – I have totally fallen behind on fishing report updating.  Many apologies and hopefully I’ll get this one right so it stays put!  Offshore trips have found billfish, tiles, dolphin and still some tuna!  Nearshore adventures are finding ribbons, mackeral, bluefish, albecore and more.  Tournament week wrapped up Friday with phenomenal billfish catches and a fantastic showing of local talent!! (Congratulations everybody!!)  The Alice Kelly Memorial event was a success as always and pretty work to all the ladies!!  Go girls!!  This summer has been a ton of fun so far and still lots more to come… Thank you so much to all our groups… you all make what we do so fun and tremendously rewarding! We have August 24 and 28 still open and several options in September – Let’s go fishing!!!
