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!!!

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!!

         

August Fishing!

As we roll on through August we have had a variety of fun this past week – Our kick off was the Alice Kelly tournament – always a blast and what a great cause!  The marina was buzzing all week with the Pirate’s Cove Big Game Tournament – Congratulations to all the teams!!  We had Nearshore trips for Spanish and Blues – Tons of fun for the kids!  And our Offshore trips were spent chasing down the Dolphin and Tiles… YUM!  Thank you so much to everyone!!  We have a few spots open in the next few weeks before we change gears and start chasing ducks… Give us a call to get in on all the fun!!

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!??

Cobia, Tiles, Mahi and more!

It has been an incredible start to our 2018 season… the COBIA are thick, the RED DRUM are around, the dolphin (MAHI MAHI) have started to show and the TILES are hungry!!  Thank you so much to all our trips this week… you guys are awesome!!!  Congratulations to 7 year old B for his first (several) COBIA!!! Way to go kiddo!!!  It’s time to fish!!!

 

       

Goodbye Turkeys… Hello COBIA!!!

Fishing Season has Officially begun and the COBIA are here to kick it off right!!! 

 

We wrapped up another phenomenal turkey season thanks to all our crew!!  There is nothing quite like Spring in the woods and to be able to share all we treasure with great friends and family is beyond words…. Non-stop back porch stories, delicious meals right off the grill, fun and fellowship and simple appreciation of what mother nature offers us all every day – we can’t say Thank You enough to everyone.

 

On to the COBIA!!  These fantastic fish are on the move and coming up the coast fast – fishing as been off the hook this week and the weather has cooperated despite the forecast (a true testament to NEVER fully believe the weather forecast on the Outer Banks…. the dart board technique is alive and well!)

 

Near future Dates available at this time are: May 21 and 22, 28, 31, and June 1. Some scattered dates are still open the last 2 weeks of June.  Don’t miss out on this fishery… our Cobia will often move out by July so give us a call soon if you want to target these fish!  In other news further off the beach – the DOLPHIN (MAHI MAHI) are showing up, the boys got into the TILEFISH already, and the TUNA are still biting!  Let’s go fishing!

 

 

  

Happy 4th of July!!

It’s hard to believe we are already moving into July… so far the summer has been fantastic and the fishing incredible!  Tuna, Dolphin, King Mackerel, Spanish Mackerel, Bluefish, Sea Bass and more… Thank you so much to all of our groups and a huge bucket of appreciation to Jim, Tom, Kelly, Dave, and all the crew getting us through an unexpected quick haul out – you guys are amazing and we would be lost without you… You have no idea how much we appreciate you! Thank you  🙂

 

Give us a call – it’s time to go fishing!!

 

June Fishing!

As we roll into mid June the fishing continues to be fantastic!  A mixed bag of trips and fish this past week – from Half Day Nearshore to Full Day Offshore… and everything in between.  Dolphin… Tuna… Mackerel… Blues… Tons of fun with awesome people!! Thanks everybody!!  The last 2 weeks of June are filling fast… give us a shout if you want to go!!

      

Beautiful Weather and Beautiful Fishing!

From Cobia to Dolphin to Spanish Mackerel to Tilefish and more…. this week’s theme has been variety!!  Our Cobia are the main target this time of year but who can resist chasing the rest?!?!  🙂  We have already had tons of great trips with awesome anglers – thank you so much to all our seasoned salts and to our new group too (Go Duke!)  Great job everybody!  Let’s go fishing!
