PLENTY TO BE LEARNED
Most days offshore I learn more about life from the good folks who fish with us and the past three days have been an absolute pleasure watching Scott Love and his 14 year old son Jackson, just the two of them for three days with as good a quality time together as our good earth has to offer. Check out the photo page and see all of the fish that Jackson angled, Wahoo, Mahi, King Mackerel, Yellowfin and Blackfin Tuna, Amberjack. And he caught 90% of them all. I told Scott that he should win the Father of the Year Award. Great Dad !!! Fishing has been good offshore for the past few days with Dancin Outlaw and Merry Marlin both decking Swordfish on Tuesday and along with the Sensation, the Due South, Bill Collector and Bluewater have each had good catches of Tuna, Wahoo and Mahi. Still have ONE SLOT open for the Big Rock. Give me a call. Hope that your day today is a good one !!

AFTER THE STORM
You just cannot believe what the big Gale force blow this past weekend did to the ocean. I've never seen so much green water and it really changed the fishing around. Although we did have a decent catch of Mahi, Wahoo and Tuna with Carl Johnson and crew on Sunday. Although a little choppy Carl always makes it fun to fish with his crowd. Yesterday, today and hopefully tomorrow we have Scott Love and his son Jackson. Yesterday we stayed busy catching Tuna, King Mackerel and Wahoo. Bill Collector had a good catch of Wahoo, Blackfin, Mackerel and Mahi. Today Good Lord willing we're going looking a Blue Marlin and some boats are going looking a Swordfish. Stay tuned for hopefully a good report.

WHACKED THE WAHOO
Yesterday with an old classmate of mine Pete Evans along with his son Brandon and friends David and Matt they kept Patrick really busy all day long whacking the Wahoo, Blackfin Tuna and Mahi Mahi. Check out the photo page to see a dock full of big fish. It's always really fun to reconnect with old friends and especially with a day on the ocean where you're not bothered with any of the onshore distractions. Captain Eli Blake ran the Dancin Outlaw while Captain Thomas was out of town and he along with Mate Chase also had a good fishing day with an assortment including Yellowfin Tuna. If you ever want to fish the Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament now is your chance as we have ONE SPOT available for this year so give me a jingle or shoot me a message and come have a Great and Exciting second week of June !!

JUST LIKE FALL FISHING
Yesterday Patrick and I had another great group of customers and friends from Odyssey Fire Protection and they were not disappointed staying busy all day long catching plenty of Wahoo. It was reminiscent of our Fall fishing with all the Wahoo that we found. The Gaffer Dolphin began showing up also with Dancin Outlaw putting a spread of Gaffers out on the dock along with Blackfin and Yellowfin Tuna. Along with the Gaffers the Marlin usually start showing also and Bill Collector released a White Marlin. We still have ONE SPOT available for the 2019 Big Rock. Give me a call

Good fishing yesterday for three of the waterfront fleet as Sensation sacked up a dock full of Blackfin Tuna, Yellowfin Tuna, Wahoo and King Mackerel. Odyssey Fire Protection sent 5 happy customers our way and they were busy all day long. Check out the photo page. Bill Collector and Due South also had really good catches with Bill Collector releasing a Springtime Sailfish.

WANNA FISH THE BIG ROCK ???
Yesterday Sensation achieved a Crystal Coast Slam with anglers Stephen McKnight celebrating his Dad David's birthday along with four good pals. We had already caught a few really nice Wahoo and Gaffer Dolphin when all of sudden depth chargers went off on the teasers, flat line, short riggers and short bridge pole and when we caught our breath we had 4 poles bent over and caught 4 nice Yellowfin Tuna. By the end of the day we could not get another fish in the box:)). Bill Collector was the only other boat fishing yesterday and loaded her fish box as well. Now Patrick and I have a great opportunity for you and a friend. We have 2 spots available for the BIG ROCK BLUE MARLIN TOURNAMENT ., so give me a call ASAP and plan on one of the MOST FUN weeks of your life !!!

CAPTAIN TOMMY'S FIRST SWORDFISH
On Sunday I had the opportunity to fish offshore of Islamorada Florida with my Great Friend Tommy Glasgow aboard his Albury Brothers 27 and with the help of local Captain Billy Chapman we were able to identify an area to possibly catch a Swordfish and the Good Lord smiled on us because shortly after lunch we came tight on a Sword some 1,500 feet below the boat. Captain Tommy's friend Paul joined us and after a bit of time I gaffed the fish and we ate really good Sunday night. Now this fish might have been caught off of Islamorada but we have the same resource right offshore of Morehead City and we're rigged up and ready to take you and your pals to the grounds. Check out the photo page to see the beauty.
