Apologies to all for the lack of posts…. it has been a busy few weeks!!  We have had so many awesome groups and tons of fun!!  A HUGE HUGE thank you to our PCBT Team with a special shout out to our Alice Kelly Girls!!!  You gals rock!!  The girls placed first in the Boat Decorating Contest and weighed in the 2nd and 3rd place tuna!!  The boys had a fantastic showing during the main tournament finishing up 15th in a field of over 100 of the world’s best fisherman and boats – Way to go guys!!!!  The rest of the offshore days have been full of TUNA, DOLPHIN (MAHI MAHI), TILEFISH, BILLFISH, and even a quickie tower stop to visit our old friends the AJs!  Thank you again to all of our anglers!!!  You are what makes what we do so special!!!  We will be fishing a little deeper into the season this year before we make the jump to the birds… our last trips are scheduled for the beginning of October.  We still have a few days open so please get your day if you are ready to get out there… LET’S GO FISHING!!

 

Fantastic Outer Banks Summer Fishing!

Summer rolls on with AWESOME GROUPS and AWESOME FISHING!!!  A huge thank you to all our groups the last couple of weeks… you guys and gals are always tons of fun!!  Fishing has been off the hook with DOLPHIN (MAHI MAHI), TUNA, MARLIN, TILES, and more!!  Don’t miss out and get on the books – we still have some open days in August but they are going fast! Let’s go fishing!!!

Summer Fishing is HOT!

A quick catch up… other than a couple of weather days and an awesome 4th (what a gorgeous day to celebrate Independence Day!!) we have been chasing offshore fish non-stop!  Fantastic fishing continues with Mahi Mahi, Tilefish, Billfish, and even some tuna still around!!!  A huge thank you to all our groups – you guys and GALS rock!!  This Thursday opened up last minute (July 15) and we have a few spots left the following week for both Offshore Full Days and our Nearshore Half Day (5 hour trip – Perfect for a family trip!)  It’s time to fish… Let’s go!!!

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!

  

Summer Fishing is here!!

The season is in full swing! Variety is the name of the game for this year’s start… Cobia, Mahi, Drum, Spanish, Kings, Tiles, Blues, even a Puffer and already seeing some billfish (jumped off a sail yesterday)!  The weather has been awesome and the fishing equally enjoyable… Thank you so much to everyone for getting this year rolling with so much fun!!  Give us a call if you want to get out there… it’s time to go fishing!

     

Winter Catch Up!

We have had one of the busiest and most fun winters!  Exhausting but crazy rewarding, super fun, non-stop and never a dull moment 🙂  A huge thank you to all our hunters… you guys are family to us and we cannot tell you enough how much we appreciate and love you!! We miss everyone already 🙁  We kicked off the season out west and then got down to business back home with waterfowl, upland game hunts, winter boat maintenance and continuing construction on the new lodge (completely restored 1850 farmhouse…almost 3 years of work and finally getting to the end!).  Our lodge is scheduled to be up and running for turkey season and we are really excited to stop building and start enjoying it!  Upland Game Preserve Season continues until the end of March and we have had a blast starting up this new adventure!  We had a soft opening last season and with private hunts this year we are well on our way – we still have some availability this year of anyone is interested in getting some shooting in before it’s back to the water… Fishing will start rolling next month with inland Rockfish and we start chasing Turkeys in April… then… COBIA season!!  We are starting to fill days in May and June for the Fistful so please give us a call if you have days you want to save… it won’t be long before the winter is gone and sunny warm fishing days return!! Give us a shout!!

         

Summer fishing rolls on!!

A huge Thank You to all our anglers the last couple of weeks!  Pretty work everybody!!!   OFFSHORE FULL DAY trips are finding Dolphin (mahi mahi), Tiles, Sea Bass, Triggers, and more plus our Billfish are starting to show up!!  Our 4 and 6 hours groups are after Drum, Mackerel, Cobia, Ribbons, Shark and even a Rattlesnake!?!? You never know!  The weather has been awesome all summer until several days ago – Mother Nature kept us at the dock for a few days but she is straightening back out now and it’s time to go!!!  Thanks again everybody…. always a blast to fish with all our anglers!!  A few days opened up for us this coming week – give us a call and join in on all the fun!

June summary – amazing fishing!

We are rolling into July with unbelievable weather and equally fantastic fishing!!  The past week has been full of dolphin and tuna plus tiles and more on our Fullday Offshore trips and Spanish and Blues with a few Cobia still mixed in for our 4 and 6 hour trips… and as always –  incredible groups to spend the day with!!  Our 2 big fish of the week were a 124 pound Yellowfin Tuna and a 195 pound Bigeye Tuna plus the first Wahoo of the season –  Pretty work everybody!  Slick calm conditions and crazy active marine life makes you catch your breath and say thank you… every day.  Congratulations and thank you to all our anglers – you make what we do so special!

Gordon – always a pleasure and KY fam – thank you for making the drive!! (you may not have fit on the plane with all that anyway!!).  CW… never a dull moment and always a trip… looking forward to next time!  A couple of stowaways and a sweet dockside visit rounded off the week plus a great Father’s Day back to the basics – what else would you do on your day off!??
