BOTTOM DWELLERS BIT PRETTY GOOD
Yesterday a small fleet left the waterfront and slipped offshore ., Dancin Outlaw, Bill Collector, Bluewater and Due South came home with a varietal catch ranging from Triggerfish to Wahoo ., pretty decent fishing for the last day of November ., just shows you that the fish are out there waiting all year long , inshore the Trout and Drum bite has been hot, hot, hot , from the Surf to the Estuaries ., my Pals Brick Brown and Son Whit caught Trout on most every cast day before Thanksgiving just inside of Beaufort Inlet .., but there's been a good sign of them around the jetties and along the beach .., the Crystal Coast is an amazing place to call home , very Thankful :))

SHOUT OUT TO PRESIDENT TRUMP
Not much recent fishing action however Due South has headed offshore today so I should have a fishing report for you later today .., first though I wanted to give a Shout Out to President Donald Trump ., Our Commander in Chief spent his Thanksgiving Day in Afghanistan with our Troops , our former President would have probably spent his Thanksgiving with Lil Wayne, Jay-Z, Al Sharpton, and Bruce Springsteen along with the rest of his famous guest list decimating the East Room in the White House with yet another of his expensive tax payer soirees., and now Adam Schiff and his cast of clown cronies are trying to get us right back to the Obama era

Yesterday my Pals Captain Mark Chambers along with Captain Jacky Dufour on the Due South sacked up a 200+ pound Swordfish and then stopped inshore for several huge Beeliners and Triggerfish .., click on the photo page for a pic of those proud two with the Sword. Sensation's mate Patrick Dufour took a couple of fellows on his Contender on Monday and scored .., then yesterday Patrick fished with Lee McLamb and Chuck Boswick on the Magic Moment and sacked up another big Swordfish .., the Swords have reappeared since we fished with Bill Webb for two straight days and caught nothing but Sharks :(( , the forecast for this Saturday is delightful and Sensation is open for a charter , Swordfish, Wahoo, Tuna, Triggerfish .., you Choose :)) give me a call and let's get out there !!!

Sorry to be so long getting a report done. It's because my Admin Page has been misbehaving. Our last trip was on Tuesday and although we had high hopes, Tim Wetherington and his group of Guy C Lee customers did not have a good trolling day at all. Seems that the big Northeast blow that we had prior to that trip had really impacted the ocean. Unfortunately for the Sensation the bottom fishing wasn't the best either however Tim and the fellas really made the best of the day and had plenty of fun. But the good news is that the water is back to normal and the Wahoos are out there waiting on us and Sensation has plenty of days open this week and next ??., On the West Coast in Mag Bay the Reel Development boat, with local boys Cole Wagner and Thomas Bennett were looking to break a record yesterday with over 200 Striped Marlin releases in a single day. I haven't heard the final count yet but when I do I'll let you know. Sure hope that you have a great Thanksgiving Week ?.., We sure have plenty to be thankful for :))

GOOD LORD WILLING
Yep Good Lord willing Patrick and I are heading offshore this morning to the Shelf Break in hopes of finding some late Fall Wahoo and Sailfish. As you know the wind has been incessant down here for days now and no one has been able to venture off there. So I'm hopeful that I'll have a good report for you tonight. Hope that all is good in your world. Stand by for a new report.

AS YOU CAN IMAGINE
Not much going on in the offshore fishing world here on the Crystal Coast because of the wind and frigid temperatures. However it looks like it may settle down by early week and hopefully I'll have a report for you. In the meantime let's plan for next Spring ??., as of this morning Sensation only has 11 days still available in May and June is filling up also but still plenty available in April so get in front of your calendar and let's get a day or two on the books ?.., stay warm and dry !!

Patrick and I had the pleasure of having a couple of true outdoorsmen on the Sensation for the past couple of days. Bill Webb came down from Virginia along with his wife Paula and his great friend Rich, whom Bill calls Doc. Both Bill and Rich have fished extensively throughout the world and the sole purpose of the trip to Morehead was for Bill to capture his final remaining Billfish class by IGFA standards, which means hooking and successfully bringing the fish to leader without any assistance. Bill's final challenge is a Swordfish, which lives 1,500 feet deep on the bottom of the ocean. Sensation has had good success catching Swordfish so Bill chartered us for two days to complete his "bucket list". We fished Sunday and Monday and when the bell rang yesterday, Bill had successfully angled 4 very large Sharks, each taking over an hour of steady, hard work cranking the sea monsters up from 1,500 feet. I am sad to report that we did not have a Swordfish bite ??, however Patrick and I did have the pleasure of seeing a World Class Angler at work ?.., we're hopeful that next trip with Bill will be successful. Otherwise yesterday the fleet had decent Wahoo, Sailfish and King Mackerel catches along with very successful Trigger and Grouper fishing. We have days open so please give me a holler !!!

WAHOOS ARE WAITING ON YOU
Patrick and I took Paul Rudershausen and crew from NC State's CMAST offshore yesterday and we tagged dozens and dozens of Black Sea Bass along with American Red Snapper. While the fishing was good on the bottom the fishing offshore for the past couple of days for the very few boats who have ventured out there has been pretty darn good with the General and Bill Collector catching Wahoo, Sailfish and King Mackerel. Here we are in November and the fishing continues to be good. We'll be running offshore trips into December so get on down here ?., The Wahoo will be happy to see you ?., and so will I ?.., have a great day wherever you are !!

STAND BY FOR A REPORT
Most all of the fleet has been between the pilings for a good while now waiting for this Northeast wind to subside some, while many of our buddies are on the West Coast of Mexico at Cabo and up at Mag Bay releasing dozens of Marlin each day. The Big Oh and Reel Development have been setting new release records over there. We're gonna try to venture out today with NC State's CMAST to tag some Sea Bass but we will not be too far offshore of the Cape Lookout Shoals. Maybe some of the fleet will get further out there and I can give you a good offshore report. But in the meantime the Trout and Drum are snapping inshore so as usual the Crystal Coast has some fishing action for you to enjoy regardless of the wind. Hope to see you back down here soon !!

MY SWEET SISSY ANNE
On Monday I had my sweet sissy Anne on board with two of her great friends Debbie and Julie and they had an awesome day, each catching their first Sailfish along with a big Wahoo, 26 pound Gaffer Dolphin and King Mackerels. Anne looked after me when I was a small boy and she's always been my Fav :))) ........, Due South also sacked up 5 Sailfish releases before the end of the day along with plenty of meat. Although it's almost November there's still plenty going on out on the Continental Shelf Break and inshore. The King Mackerel fishing has really heated up along with Spanish and Albacore. Time to try your luck with your fly rod and an Albie. Halloween is tomorrow night ?.., you gonna get Tricked ??, or Treated ??
