Fishing Report

Saturday, February 17, 2018

I sat thru a 2 1/2 hour NC Marine Fisheries Council meeting in Wrightsville Beach on Valentine's Night along with hundreds of North Carolina's Commercial Fishermen who, one after another, pleaded with the Council to leave the Commercial Fishing License requirements as they are ...., but Pete Kornegay and Chuck Laughridge were relentless in their efforts to prevent good people from obtaining and keeping a part time Commercial Fishing License and voted to send a Re-Definition to the State Legislature ....,the Recreational Fishing Community and the CCA got an Undeserved Black Eye on Wednesday night ..., if you have a chance please thank Kornegay and Laughridge for stoking the fire of division between Good People ...., Recreational and Commercial Fishermen .

Well it looks like Snoop Dog, John Legend, Cher, Hillary and other Mental Giants have joined their bottom feeding Hollywood brothers and sisters by reading an already discredited book at the Grammy Awards, bashing Trump and injecting Politics into one of the last remaining Safe Harbors ..., I have always loved the Grammys and I do love music ...., but as Nicki Hale has said ..., I am done watching it ..., but the Good News is that it's almost February and Spring is just around the corner .., YAY !!!! Before we know it the sun is going to warm the Good Earth and we'll be back on the Blue Waters of the Gulf Stream watching the water explode with awesome bites behind the Sensation ..., Know what the dog said after he got his tail run over by a truck? .., "It won't be long now!!" :)) Get on your computer or give me a call and let's get a day on the books

I took Sensation over to Jarrett Bay yesterday (check out the photo page) .., first for annual engine maintenance and then haul out for bottom paint, thru hull inspection and running gear maintenance ..., she was happy to be on the water again even for just the short jaunt up the Intracoastal Waterway .., but she'll be much happier, as will you and I, when the sun is shining from blue skies, it's 80 degrees, and we're looking back waiting to see that Dorsal fin pop up behind the left short rigger :)) ...., Spring is gonna be here before you know it and Sensation's booking calendar is beginning to fill so you need to get your calendar out and let's get a day on the books ...., man that warm sun's gonna feel good on that brown skin

Although the Sensation was tied to the dock and did not get in on the action yesterday was a busy day on the ocean ..., first my mate Patrick and brother Jacky whacked the Grouper and other bottom fish on a day long commercial trip ..., then my friend and customer Chuck Umstead took his outboard a few miles offshore and loaded up on Mackeral ..., and finally the Dancin Outlaw with McSherry Wells on board scored big on the Swordfish with a couple of Dandies ...., check out the photo page for yesterday's action .., getting offshore and fishing is just one thing that I am really missing right now :(( ...., not being able to do what I really love .., but hopefully soon :)) .., let's break out the new year with a trip to the warm water so get with me and let's plan a day !!!!

I'm not originally from Morehead City and when I have a new charter on the Sensation someone will always ask me if I was born here ...., my standard answer is that I was not born here but I got here as quick as I could ...., The Good Lord blessed me with the opportunity to live here and do what I love ..., like my Good Friend Randy Ramsey says, "When I figured out that I could get paid to go fishing, I knew that was for me" .., and I live in a Fishing Paradise ...., everything from Spots and Croakers on the Oceana Pier, to Trout and Drum in the Surf, to Spanish, Kings, Flounders, Sea Bass, and Albacore Tuna , to Giant Bluefin Tuna, Blue Marlin, Sailfish, White Marlin, Swordfish, Wahoo, Yellowfin and Blackfin, Mahi Mahi, all varieties of Grouper, Triggerfish and Snapper ..., you choose what you want to catch and we'll try to make it happen ..., Patrick and I are looking forward to the rest of 2017 and 2018 .., so holler at me or shoot me a message and let's get you, your friends, and family on the Sensation soon !!!
