July 5, 2006

Fishing has been wide open and the weather has been great. We've been doing real good in the Gulf Stream for wahoo and king mackeral, couple of 30-40 pound fish caught last week. On the bottom side, we've gotten grouper and snapper and black sea bass. As far as inshore fishing goes, it's been spotty. Some days we limited out on mackeral, some days we just catch a few. We have caught some nice cobia inshore on wrecks over the last few days. This was a unique trip - we ran into a school of bruiser spottails, 40 pounders, out about eighteen miles.

Last week we've been catching a lot of spanish on the beach and black tip sharks. On my offshore trips, we've been catching snapper, grouper, and king mackeral. I haven't been to the Gulf Stream, but I'll go this weekend. I heard that there has been wahoo showing up now. When September gets here it will be prime time to go back to the gulf stream as the water cools off. Book now for September and October gulf stream trips. Here's a pic of a small shark caught on a half day trip.

We've been catching a lot of king mackeral and grouper in 65-100 ft of water on half days and all day trips. Gulf stream fishing, we caught a few more sailfish and scattered tuna. The wahoo have been the most productive. Gearing up for the bluefin tuna bite which begins December 1st. We'll be running charters for the bluefins out of Morehead,NC and Myrtle Beach when the fish move south.
