Capt Patrick had Nathan Moore and crew aboard the Sensation yesterday and they earned their catch fishing in a 20 knot Northeaster ..., but they did get back to the dock with a really nice catch of Mahi, Wahoo and Blackfin Tuna ....., today's looking similar starting out but Good Lord willing the wind and big swell from the storm offshore will subside as the morning comes on ...., the balance of the fleet also had decent fishing yesterday offshore on meatfish and the Sailfish continue to hang around ...., inshore there has been a good sign of the Big Drum in pretty much all of the estuaries ..., we have great fishing here on the Crystal Coast and you need to be a part of it .., in the meantime Google ...., it'll scare the hell out of you


Sitting here this morning reading about how Joe Biden is going to change the successful tax structure that's in place and fix an economy that doesn't need fixing and this is coming from a man who has been in politics all of his life, never had a job, never had employees, never signed a payroll check .., made a fortune sucking on the government tit ..., but claims to be a business guru ..., come on y'all ...., anyone who thinks that Joe Biden is capable of being President has their head stuck far far in the sand ..., amazing that people dislike Trump so much that they are willing to severely damage our great country by voting incompetence into office ...., okay enough of that ..., Dancin Outlaw continues to keep her riggers full of Sailfish flags with another successful day yesterday ..., Jarrett Bay's new Reel Development caught 4 Sails on her inaugural trip and On Point sacked up a Blue Marlin AND 6 Sailfish ..., great Billfishing and Wahoo fishing here on the Crystal Coast ..., come get you some !!! be missing you

Congratulations to Capt Wade and Mate Trey for winning the Charter Boat Division of the Governor's Cup ....., and to Capt Hunter Blount and crew on the Sea I Sea as overall champs ....., Good Stuff !! ....., It's almost that time of year when the big Wahoo and Sailfish start their annual migration up from the South along the Continental Shelf Break ....., Fall is always my favorite meat fishing month ...., the past few days have been somewhat shy with the trolling bite .., a few Wahoo, Sailfish and Blackfin Tuna for most of the fleet ......, we took my Good Pal Bubba Haywood, pretty wife Sharon, Tim White and son Robert on Sunday looking for a Blue Marlin for Sharon that was not to be found ..., I have plenty more to tell you about that sweet Bubba but that will come in a later report ..., seemed that there was hot water and lots of current from off Hatteras to off of Wilmington ..., but the ocean conditions are always changing and good conditions are forming already ..., stay well


Bobby Rice brought his son Brad along with four of Brad's close friends aboard the Sensation yesterday to celebrate Brad's Birthday ......., although the trolling bite was not spectacular with only a few small Gaffers and Barracuda those fellas had a fantastic time bantering back and forth and catching Triggerfish ...., I did have a Blue Marlin just about take off a couple of fingers on my left hand as he inhaled the left teaser and stripped the reel all the way to the knot .., thank goodness the knot held and the Marlin turned loose ..., but we never saw the fish again ., Due South had a great day with a Blue Marlin and Sailfish release along with a few Wahoo, Mahi and Amberjack ...., and Ramblin Man flew a Sailfish flag along with Wahoo and some bottom dwellers ..., It was a beautiful day on the Great North Atlantic ., wish you could have been there !!
