Fishing Report

Check out the Sensation photo page for a glimpse of a Dandy of a Wahoo that Dancin Outlaw caught yesterday on her 2018 maiden voyage offshore along with the General, Bill Collector and the Sensation ...., started out as a somewhat pretty day with reasonable wind and seas but as the day progressed the wind picked up and we all got back to shore just ahead of a major blow ...., it was Great to get offshore finally with the short break from steady winds and although we didn't score huge, Danny Primm and his good friends had a decent catch of Blackfin Tuna ....., I marked plenty of bait but for whatever reason we didn't have a Wahoo bite ..., we did manage to pull off a Sailfish after a long battle ..., Dancin Outlaw and Bill Collector each caught a couple of Wahoo and Blackfin Tuna and Capt Wade on the General had a good catch of Blackfin ..., Sensation is open all next week so give me a call ...., I'm ready for a Great Spring and Summer ..., we know that it's been a L.O.N.G. Winter :))

I received a report early this morning that a Maersk Container Ship got caught in heavy winds and seas late yesterday roughly 15 miles off of Oregon Inlet, NC and lost approximately 70 containers overboard .., so if you are sailing in NC and Southern Virginia waters keep a sharp eye out ...., Sensation is scheduled to splash tomorrow, Monday, and hopefully we will be back in the slip and finishing all of our prep work on tackle, riggers, etc. and be ready to get out to the Shelf Break and catch some of those Wahoo and Tuna along with whatever else the Good Lord allows us to catch ...., really ready to get off dry land and see some Magic again :))

Got the Penn, Star and Shimano rods all polished up and ready to get the reels back attached and re-spool with fresh line ...., hopefully back in the slip within the next week to get all of that done and the tackle ready for some big holes and bent poles ...., check out the photo page to see the finishing touches being put on the Sensation at Jarrett Bay ...., sure will be great when I am able to sit at this window early in the mornings and write you all an actual fishing report ..., rumor has it that some boats out of Wrightsville have already been whacking the Wahoo .., and my mate Patrick smoked the bottom fish last week and caught an exceptionally large Grouper ....., get on the Booking Calendar and get a date penciled in ....., sure am looking forward to seeing you down here :))

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
