Outer Banks North Carolina Fishing Reports
Offshore with Chris
Well Chris and crew headed offshore on yet again, another windy day to find some tuna and Dolphin. I decided to run down the beach first to find some live bait to take with us just in case. Once we arrived to gulfstream, we had our first gaffer Dolphin on. Ben did a great job getting to the boat, despite being a little sea sick. Next it was Chris who fought a stud tuna, which he battled for a while before getting it to the boat. Next Rob pulled on a big Hammerhead shark that we released next to the boat. After trolling around for a few more unsuccessful hours, we headed inshore to look for something different. We made one stop and tossed a few of our live baits out. The Amberjack went crazy, busting the surface and 5 to 10 fish at a time chasing baits. After the guys had their fun with the Amberjack, we called it a day and headed to the dock. Thanks Rob, Chris, and Ben for dealing with not the best ever fishing conditions.
I was out with long time client John Barlow & crew for an afternoon trip. The wind just won't ease up long enough to make fishing fun. We hit some spots that were out of the wind and Bill showed the boys how to catch fish. It's always a good time fishing with Bill. Maybe next time we'll have better luck.
Fishing lately has been very tough with all the wind we have had. I haven't been able to get offshore for tuna and I hear they are still snapping. Most of the Cobia have moved north, but there are still a few around. The blues and Spanish have been hit and miss thanks to the wind. The trout have been biting, but are hard to find. Its just finding the right grass bed.
After a long fight and a lot of laughing, Marc got his 71lb Cobia to the boat.
I was out last Sunday with Marc Kerns and Dave Lusk looking for Cobia. Marc landed his first Cobia ever which was a nice 71lb fish. Dave & I both caught 32lb fish. We saw a few more, but all were small ones, so we called it a day and cleaned some fish.
