AWESOME JULY!!

I am not sure where to start… the last half of July has provided an amazing variety of crazy fun fishing with so many great groups!!  We appreciate everyone so much and also appreciate the fantastic fishing that our area has to offer during these summer months… we are so thankful to be able to call the Outer Banks home.  Our trips have predominately been Nearshore the last few weeks and the species all across the board – Kingfish, Triggers, Tiles, Spanish mackerel (we had 2 6 pound plus citation Spanish in 1 week!! check out the pic below…), Dolphin (Mahi Mahi), Albecore, Amberjack, Cobia, Red Drum, and more.  This time of year you never know what you will see out there and everyday can be different – so much fun!!  August is booking up quickly so please give us a call if you want to go… Time to go fishing!!!

   

Late Summer Great Fishing!

The last 2 weeks have been full of great fishing and amazing charters!  We have had a number of young anglers lately and what an impressive display of ability and enthusiasm from all of them – Every one of our kids jumped right into the fray and man… you can’t slow them down.  Some are new to the game and some are already well on their way to becoming pros (B. Boys – you know who you are!!) – Awesome job everybody!! One of our goals is to create an experience for them (and their adults) that will turn into a life-long passion… it really gets your heart fired up to see that spark.  Thank you so much to all our groups – Grown-Ups and Youngsters!  *** A huge Thank You goes out to Capt. Jim on the HogWild and Capt. Troy on the Fowl Hooked for helping us juggle some of our groups during our unexpected quickie haul out and to all the gang down at Bluewater for pulling together and getting us up and running again – JP – we owe you… as usual!! Thank you so much…. I wish I could have seen you on that lift!! ***

 

Last but not least – we do have some days open for the next few weeks – the Fistful gets a break starting September 17th this year so let us know if you want to get out there before we turn to the ducks!  The Billfish are starting to show… the dolphin are here on the Full Day trips… the Big Drum are hanging around… the Mackerel are snappin… the blues are snappin…the Jacks are snappin… the weather is beautiful… Let’s go Fishing!!

Summer fishing is fantastic!

As we roll on with our summer season the fishing continues to be so exciting! The king mackerel have shown up, the big red drum are here, our amberjacks are still super spunky and the dolphin are moving in!  Don’t forget about the Spanish and Blues – smaller fish and so much action and fun! (not to mention delicious!)  Several of our local youngsters (including our little angler) participated in the annual Pirate’s Cove Small Fry tournament (Thank you Troy for taking the gang and Awesome work Nikki for a fantastic turn out!) and caught Spanish, Blues, Croaker, Spot, Spade fish, and more…  keeping the kids into it is so important and we are very proud to be part of a community that supports our industry and our passion.  We have some openings left next week for a few 4 hour trips and (1) 6 hour trip – give us a call… let’s go fishing!
