OOPS NOT THE BOOTLEGGER

In yesterday's report I said that the Bootlegger was being run by Captain Mark Chambers. Actually that Bootlegger boat is being changed to the Due South very soon but the real Bootlegger boat Captained by Jimmy Kanoy and Dock Tom Brewer will still be here and open for charters. Yesterday we had Racing Legend Jonathan Davenport along with good friends and family on board the Sensation and had a really fun day catching Wahoo, Blackfin Tuna, and Sailfish. Check out the photo page. Also the temporary Bootlegger, aka Due South, had a really good catch of Wahoo and the Pelagic from Atlantic Beach filled the box up with Wahoo and caught and released three Sailfish. Great Fall fishing here on the Crystal Coast !!!

BOOTLEGGER AND THE WAHOOS

Captain Mark Chambers has taken over the helm of a new waterfront charter boat, the Bootlegger, and yesterday he made her proud with a nice catch of Wahoo, King Mackerel, Blackfin Tuna and sorted other pelagics. Good Lord willing Sensation will be sailing today for the first time in several weeks and we're plenty excited. Unsure who the rest of the fleet will be today but I'll let you know in my report tonight. Next week we'll be celebrating Thanksgiving and we've a plenty to be Thankful for. Stand by

FALL AND WINTER FISHING OPPORTUNITIES

Unfortunately the wind has kept the fleet pretty much pinned to the dock and will again today so no fishing report today. Hopefully we will be able to get back out there soon. The wahoo, tuna and Sailfish should continue to bite good on into December. Also Patrick and I are set up for Swordfishing and Big Country has just proven that some bigs ones are out there after decking that 410 pounder last week so let?s get a day on the books soon. Keep in mind the Dominican Republic. Patrick and I will be running the Delta Dawn at Casa de Campo in Feb and March and right now we still have the first 2 weeks and the last week of February open as well as the first week of March. Some of the groups are planning a combo Marlin fishing and Golf week, fish in the morning and golf in the afternoon.. In addition to fantastic fishing there are two World Class golf courses including Teeth of the Dog a Top 10 course. I would love nothing better than for you to join me in the DR. Shoot me a message while there is still availability.

SOLO ON THE BIG ROCK

On Sunday Scott Andrews brought his customers/friends aboard the Sensation for what we thought would be a choppy day offshore in the Gulf Stream, but as it turned out the wind blew hard inshore but only 15 knots or so offshore so we ended up having a very pleasant day. Tons of bait everywhere but the "East is Least" concept held true and we didn't have as many bites as we would have hoped for in the East wind however what we did catch were keepers. We didn't see another fishing vessel of any sort all day long, marked plenty of bait and fish, and when the dust settled our crew had a couple of nice Wahoo, a Sailfish, Amberjack, Blackfin Tuna and a few other sorted. Check out the photo page to see Scott's catch and keep in mind that we're doing Swordfish charters over the Winter. Sure hoping to see you again soon !!! Oh and did you watch the whipping that NC State's Wolfpack put on Elizabeth Warren's Tribe on Saturday :))

BIG COUNTRY DECKS A 410

Alan, Big Country, Scibal had a GREAT day yesterday aboard the Knot Done Yet when he and his crew hooked, battled for a few hours and decked a 410 pound Valentines Day Swordfish ...., an exceptional catch ..., Patrick and I had the Sensation in the vicinity so we got to hear a play by play on this awesome catch. Check out the website for the photo as well as Keith and Joe along with their Wahoo and Mahi catch from yesterday. We should have left the Wahoos alone and went Swordfishing. Captain Gabe on the Diamond Girl had a 4banger on Sails also and added one more later to fly 5 Sailfish flags to the dock. Capt Ralph on the Fin Print also had a couple of releases too. We stayed at the dock today and unfortunately because of heavy winds looks like we?ll be tied up for a few more days. Sometimes it just doesn?t work out like you hope for. Sensation is rigged up and Patrick and I are ready to take you to offshore to catch a Sword this Winter to have for Christmas Supper ..., Give me a call and let?s get after them

85 POUND WAZILLA

On Thursday Patrick and I had he privilege of having newlywed David Elliot aboard the Sensation for his weather delayed bachelor party and as it turns out David caught a Sailfish to follow his wife Dana's Sailfish which she caught aboard the Sensation in the Pirates Cove Alice Kelly Tournament. So now they can mount their Citations side by side in their new home !! You can see a Happy David on the photo page with his pals. Dancin Outlaw scored huge on a HUGE Wahoo on Thursday also with an 85 Pounder. Captain Thomas said that's the biggest Wahoo that he and Mate Eli Blake have ever caught and I must say that Sensation has never seen one that big either. Casa De Campo is calling your name. Come join Patrick and I aboard the Delta Dawn for an all inclusive fishing trip of a lifetime in the Dominican Republic in either Feb or March. Give me a call or shoot me an email. Google Casa De Campo and take a look around.

CHECK OUT THE PHOTO PAGE

Yesterday was all that the fleet could hope for with the Wahoo fishing. All of the boats including the Dancin Outlaw, Bill Collector, Twin Fin, Ava D, Energizer and yours truly on the Sensation had excellent Wahoo fishing. My good crew led by Hugh Lennon (whom by the way was a NYC 911 Firefighter and we were super honored to have him on board) caught several Citation sized fish including a 56.8 pounder along with some Jumbo Blackfin Tuna. Several Sailfish were also caught by the fleet. The wind is blowing today but we're hopeful that it will lay out tonight and we'll be able to get back out there tomorrow. Getting chilly here as the Fall moves in but that seems to make the ocean come alive and the fish frisky.

CASA DE CAMPO

Sensation has been temporarily displaced because of lovely Florence, and my new dock partner, Capt Wade Fickling of the General had a stellar day of fishing yesterday. His fishbox was loaded with several 50-60 pound Wahoo, the nicest catch that I've seen this season and today I'm hopeful that we will be able to replicate that catch with our crew on the Sensation. I'll let you know late this afternoon. Reel Country also had an exceptional Wahoo catch. You need to google Casa De Campo. Patrick and I have been given the opportunity to run the Delta Dawn catching Marlin during this coming Feb and March and we'd love for you to come join us. There are several different all inclusive packages available so if shoot me a message I'll get the info to you. The place is Magical. And I'm looking forward to a Magical ocean here today. Just what I need. Full of life and silky smooth.

LIFE'S ALL ABOUT GOOD FRIENDS

Yesterday Patrick and I had the pleasure of having Dick Hensel and a two of his 85 year old pals on the Sensation for a half day venture on the Sensation. Another of Dick's friends had to be hospitalized and couldn't make it. We were scheduled to fish a 3/4 day but a 30 knot Northeast wind kept us close to shore and although we didn't have an exceptional fishing day, Dick and his Good Friends had an exceptional day simply bantering back and forth and being together on God's beautiful ocean. You can see these three special Gents on the photo page along with their Bluefish, Spanish and Kingfish that hit the iron skillet with House Autry last night. Life's all about Good Friends so spend all the time that you can with yours doing what you Love. The wind has subsided and some of the fleet headed offshore today so stand by and I'll give you a later report.
