Lots of fun days on the water tied into this report. Its hard to believe its been almost a month!
I spent the second week of August up fishing with some good friends on the “Sandra D” in the Pirates Cove Billfish Tournament. We had a great time, caught a blue marlin and sailfish, and hooked a couple more blue marlins that we couldn’t quite close the deal on. All and all a great week with a few more of those “one that got away” stories.
Back here in Ocracoke we have had a lot of half day trips the past 10 days, with a couple of offshore trips mixed in.
Nearshore: Spanish and blues remain strong. I’m telling you, we have had a couple of slow days, but all in all, it has been a great year for spanish and blues nearshore.
Half Day Wreck Trips- Good fishing with some really nice 50+lb amberjacks, big “Old” drum, king mackerel, and today even the illusive african pompano!
Offshore – Good wahoo fishing, with a decent mix of tuna, dolphin, and the sword fishing is still going strong.
