"Today's Report" | Carolina Contender | 05/29/03
 

It was a pretty rough day on the water.  The seas were tough and the fish were not too cooperative.  We ended up hooking into a couple of Barracuda and a nice Cobia, but all were lost due mostly in part to the rough sea conditions.  The Spanish did not bite too good on the beach this AM either. 
I forgot to report yesterday, but we went to the Stream on the MacMarle'n and had 1 Blackfin Tuna, 2 Yellowfin, 4 Dolphin, 1 King and 1 Jack- The fishing was decent as we fished the Northern Winyah Scarp area.  I understand the fishing off the Blackjack area has gotten hot as of late.

Rough and tough!! The southwest wind really had the seas kicked up and choppy. There was alot of water flying to say the least. We had some real troopers on the boat so we trudged out to the 65 foot hole and jigged some big cigar minnows. The effort had little reward with only 2 sharks and one King coming to the boat. Stay tuned it will get better!!

Today I reported back to duty aboard the Carolina Contender.  We fished on inshore wrecks and encountered amberjack, cobia, king mackerel, barracuda and sharks.  Quite a variety pack today.  Although we were unable to successfully land a cobia, I did see something today that I've never seen before.  I watched a 50lb Cobia literally scare the life out of a live grunt.  I brought in what was a lively grunt and found it to be frozen solid after it was sniffed by the large Cobia.  I'll be back at it again tomorrow aboard the Contender for a morning and afternoon live bait trip.

Capt. Grady and I along with some folks from Charlotte and Michigan fished the MacMarle'n today around a few offshore wrecks and had good luck with the jacks, caught king mackerel, grouper and saw cobia on several occassions but was unable to capitalize.  Overall good day with good weather conditions.  Tomorrow I return to my comfort zone on the Carolina Contender for a 1/2 day trip so stay tuned to the webcam around noon.

Here are the pics from Saturday's trip aboard the MacMarle'n.  Pictured is a 71lb amberjack and the total day's catch highlighted by a 50lb wahoo that ended up being the largest fish caught in the Far Out Shoot Out.

It was a beautiful, action filled day on the water.  We started by jigging live Pinfish and Cigar Minnows 12 miles out then went and did battle with Amberjack until the crew was near wore out.  Then a nice Cobia showed up (weighed in at 44.30 pounds) and he put on a show before we hooked him up and then it was off to catch a few Kings before heading in at 2pm.  A full days fishing in just over a half day for sure.  Lots of fun for all.  Check out videos.

Had another great day on the Kings at the Atlantic Ledge. We also caught some Sharks and a Bonita. We used dead Sardines and had all the action we could handle on a beautiful day on the Ocean. You can see what a Hard morning of fishing can do to you in the pictures below!!

What can you say except the Gulf Stream fishing has been phenominal and very consistent for the past several days.  The Mahi are showing up in great numbers with Wahoo encounters frequent and the occasional Yellowfin Tuna thrown in for spice.  The action should be great for a while, so don't miss out on the fun.  Mahi mania!!  Here are some pictures I've been meaning to put up of the last week's catches.

Yesterday I along with Captain Roger and Captain Grady took a charter for the Far Out ShootOut.  We fished from the Blackjack  hole north to the Steeples and found good action on the dolphin and wahoo.  We ended up weighing a 50lb wahoo and 20lb dolphin.  The day was highlighted though by what apparently was an enormous yellowfin tuna that turned into an even larger amberjack that ended up tipping the scale at 71lbs.

The weather man was wrong in our favor for a change. The seas had a rolling swell but made for a very pleasent ride. We had a good day on the Kings in the 8 to 12 lb range. The fish were hitting live and dead cigars at the Atlantic Ledge and Liberty Ship. There was also a lot of Jacks in the area that were following our Kings to the boat on occasion. We did catch a few SHARKS to add some variety!!

Captain Barrett and Captain Roger fished a charter aboard the MacMarle'n today around the MacMarle'n Hole in the Gulf Stream.  Had an excellent catch of Dolphin (Mahi) between 10 and 28lbs.  Found the tuna at the last minute but was unsuccessful on a triple header.  Color of choice today was hot pink and also chartreuse.  There was a lot of scattered weed and the water was full of flying fish.  We'll be back at it this weekend for the Far Out Shootout.  Things are shaping up for a great tournament. Sorry fogot the camera today

Beautiful weather day and good fishing.  We fished the 100/400 area with good, blue water at 75-76 degrees.  The action was sporadic but we caught quality fish when the bites came in the form of Dolphin up to 25 pounds and Wahoo up to 40 pounds.  The hot colors have been black/read and pink/blue and most of the fish we caught were in 160-180 feet.  The weather is starting to look really good for this weekend's Far Out Shoot Out- come on by and sign up or watch the weigh-in.  I believe I'm going to make the decision to allow fishing on either Saturday or Sunday- Capt. choice- but you are still only allowed to fish one day.  See you there.  The MacMarle'n will be in the Stream again tomorrow- I'll update when the return.

Wind and more wind.  Its been too rough to fish for the past 3 days but tomorrow looks like it'll work out.  We're supposed to be the Stream, so stay tuned for the next report.  Weather is looking like it may be shaping up to fish Far Out Shoot Out on Saturday or Sunday- cross your fingers.

"Flounder" | Stori Teller | 05/19/03
 

Ran a all day trip for Capt'n Stan Saturday and had a decent catch of flounder but only a couple of legal sized 14 inchers. The bite seems to be picking up!! When the wind starts howling this is a good option when offshore is just too BUMPY!!

Went to the Jungle area on my first half day trip this morning and marked very little bait. After about an hour we were fixing to pull up when we had a double strike of Kings. As the Kings were brought to the boat, a Cobia I would estimate between 60 and 80 lbs surfaced and circled the boat. After the Kings were gaffed, we tried feeding the Cobia everything we had, but he would not cooperate. Still that was a sight!! We ended up with a good catch of Kings and a couple of Sharks. Returned to same place on the afternoon trip and had no luck. So we tried a couple of other areas offshore and still could'nt produce. Well thats what keeps this sport going is anticipation. You never Know.

Fishing was pretty slow but we managed a decent catch.  The fish we did catch were in the 130-160 foot depth range.  All fish were caught on the downrigger- a sign that they were not in the feeding mood.

"WAHOO!!!" | Mac Marle'n | 05/16/03
 

I captained the MacMarle'n yesterday along with Capt. Roger to the Gulf Stream.  We fished anywhere from 140ft to 240ft around the Blackjack hole and had a great day.  Despite the rain showers we fished in calm conditions with the water starting to return to the gulf stream blue color everyone has been looking for.  Had an awesome day on the wahoo with probably 10 bites, 5 hookups but only a couple brought to the boat.  They are a tough fish to actually get in the boat.  Also had a good day on the dolphin with fish up to 25lbs and several decent sized kings up to 18lbs.  We encountered a lot of short strikes from smaller wahoo and in order to combat this I deployed the newest offering from Top Secret Fishing.  I had rigged a double hooked wire rigged swimming spanish mackerel and I mean this thing looked awesome!  Absolutely the prettiest bait I have ever pulled.  This bigger bait attracted a bite from a bigger wahoo and the double hook rig secured the hookup and the result was a heck of a batte in the middle of a moonsoon that ended with a 35.6lb smoker wahoo.  The specially rigged wahoo killers will be available at the Fishing Center just in time for the Far Out Shootout.  I guarantee I won't go back to the stream without at least 2.

"Today's Report" | Carolina Contender | 05/15/03
 

Today I fished the Carolina Contender while Capt. Barrett manned the MacMarle'n in the Stream.  Despite a doom and despair forecast, the seas were flat calm all day with only the occasional rain storm- no lightning.  We jigged live bait at nearshore reefs and while doing so caught a bunch of Spanish Mackerel as well as Barracuda and Amberjack that took a particular interest in our jig rigs.  We finally got to our plan and spent the last couple of hours anchored in 80 feet of water where we caught several Genuine Red Snapper up to 9 pounds and several Grouper.  The bite was good until a storm brought the winds to the SE at 15 kts and we never had another bite- it was time to come home anyway.  A nice day.  Tomorrow I'll be on the MacMarle'n in the Gulf Stream.

Fished 2 half day charters on the MM and did very well on school Kings in the 6-12 pound range.  We fished the Little River Offshore Reef where we found plenty of good size Cigar Minnows to jig which we promptly turned around and turned into Kingfish.

Tomorrow we had a Gulf Stream scheduled but I think we'll be moving that and getting back on the water on Tuesday.
