Time to fish!

Sunset over pirates cove marina… Weather is shaping up with reports of fish on the beach… summer is on the horizon…

Update :)

The Fistful has continued to chase the Spanish, Blues, and other nearshore species with some fantastic folks this week…. lots of fun and great fishing for everyone!  A big thank you to all our groups!!  We did have a day off at the end of the week and were fortunate enough to be able to go Offshore with an awesome friend and fellow hunter/angler to get into a little Marlin action!  Thank you so much Mike!!!!!  What a great day!

June 20 Fullday

What a great day we had.Quenton my homeboy from gates county was on the boat today.Quenton always seems to getem when he comes with us..Thank you for all the support..We ended up with a great catch of gaffers baffers and bailers along with a 40 lb wahoo and our first billfish of the year.A cool surprise a HATCHET marlin which is easly mistaken for a white marlin..Glad for the beatiful weather and great fishing in our range..




Back to the Cove

Back in the water and ready for the season! Shiny and even a fresh coat of bottom paint 🙂


This year we have added a new trip to the repertoire – a “Deep Water Bottom Fishing/Trolling Trip“.  This Extended Full Day trip is designed to allow for the time and fuel required to venture a bit further from the beach than we are able to do during the conventional NearShore trips.  This will provide for the opportunity to specifically target different species such as dolphin (mahi mahi) and bottom dwellers.  It is not a classic deep water gulfstream trip – more of an “in-between” and provides the experience of fishing for a wider selection of species in a budget-minded package… We will have the “Trips and Rates” page updated shortly to provide more information… Let’s go fishing!

Spring Haul Out

The Fistful is up for a quick spring haul out… getting ready for this year’s season!!  New zincs, some clean up, and a little wax and she’ll be back in the water ready to go 🙂  The days are getting longer and the warm summer fishing season is fast approaching… We are saving days already – give us a shout if you know your desired dates and we’ll get you on the book!  Thanks to everyone for all the support!!  We are looking forward to another awesome season with everybody!!


October White Marlin

September 6 Full Day

What an awesome day!!!  The ocean was beautiful once you crossed the bar and the Fistful was able to venture out on a full day trip in search of a little meat… To have such a great group of guys on the boat when we can get into the fish like this is nothing short of a fantastic “make you feel good” day!  Limit of dolphin plus a White Marlin – WAY TO GO FELLAS!!  We can’t wait til Rock Season… looking forward to seeing you again!!!  Nathan, Justin, Chris, and David – Thank you so much for fishing with us!!!


August 9

Full day trip today with a great crowd! A handful of dolphin, a white one briefly in the spread, a blue one that hit a TLD 20 flatline bite – streaming line to end in a tail wrap and gone, and one nice barracuda… you guys are awesome!  Thank you so much Joe and crew!!

July 29

Pretty work everybody!  The weather cooperated and the Fistful boat was able to head out for an Offshore trip today!  We stay nearshore most days during the summer and it is so nice to be able to get out there for a little change in pace!

Missouri’s Major party june 7th

Wow we had a crazy bunch with us today…You guys are great…The beers, bloody marys, and momosas where flowing when I stopped the boat this morning…Shortly after setting out the third pole the first two where over..It was good action for us..After catching all they wanted of spanish we made our way off the beach in search of a bigger fish..We never found one but did catch a couple of Bonitas..I think everyone will agree a good time was had by all.
