Wednesday, August 26, 2015: 8/26 Hatteras Offshore Fishing Report

Austin and the gang enjoyed a beautiful day offshore complete with some great fishing!

Wahoo fishing was pretty good again today, we went three for four. We pushed offshore and beat around in some scattered grass looking for some bailers but happened on a school of gaffers. We landed a dozen including Austin's 30 pounder. We did find some bailers as well, to give the arms a break. Thanks for a great day offshore guys...see you this winter!

Today was SLICK, And the wahoos bit again!

We found a small school of dolphin on the way out, and bailed close to a dozen before putting out the trolling baits. Our average wasn't as good as yesterday but we still hung on to five out of twelve wahoo bites. Plenty good mess of fish to enjoy this week and put away in the freezer. Thanks a lot John!

Today the dolphin fishing slacked off a little...maybe the wahoos ate them!

It took me a while to pick my lip up after our first bit of action, a triple header of sails, went completely wrong. We pushed forward and in to some pretty great wahoo fishing. We wound up landing seven wahoos out of ten bites, with an occasional dolphin bite mixed in. Great friends, great weather and great fishing. Oh, and a mixed grill of dolphin and wahoo at the Wilson's tonight! Thanks Ken

The ocean was a little choppy from 20 knot north winds, but it didn't keep the fish from biting!

We got wrapped up with an area of gaffer dolphin this morning and for a while it looked like May, gaffers on bailing rods. After exhausting my crew, we went looking for some wahoo action. The wahoo bite was better further south but we still caught one and lost one just out of gaff range. In the afternoon my crew was rested up and ready for more dolphin, so we found some bailers and finished up. Thanks for an exciting day Ed!

Thursday, August 20, 2015: Plain Lucky

Today was beautiful once again, and fishing was outstanding!

Chelsea said that her zucchini bread brought us luck, or maybe it was because she wore her lucky swimsuit, or maybe the lucky shirt. I don't know which it was but we had unbelievable dolphin fishing this morning. Another limit in one stop, but bigger fish today. The wahoos continued to be somewhat scarce but Chelsea did catch the only bite we had today. Thanks for yet another great trip guys!

Slick calm weather today and fishing still great!

Perspective is a funny thing. We search eagerly, and it's always a relief to find a big school of dolphin and get a good catch. After finishing up this morning, we spent the rest of the day trying to avoid them, and fussed when they tore up our baits. Good problem to have I guess. Wahoo fishing was scrappy. We had one bite today and won the battle. Thanks for a great trip Jason!

The wave of dolphin continued into today!

It was perfect for our young anglers, and the old guys loved it too. Another "one and done" school had us wrapped up before 8:00. I did a pretty good job of steering around the wahoos today, only had one bite and missed him. We did have a couple of unsuccessful sailfish encounters, and also landed a couple of blackfins. I did manage to find a pool float for Katie and Gracie to fight over. Thanks for spending the day with us John!

Monday, August 17, 2015: Brother's Pride

Today, Matt, Ken and Tim all got some good action and plenty of meat!

It was another epic morning with the dolphin, and we finished up in one stop. We landed two out of five wahoo bites throughout the day as well. Not much of a sign of bills. Thanks guys, see you next year!

Dolphin fishing was stupid again today ..... all you wanted.

We took care of business early and with a box full of mahi, went looking for a bigger bite. We had three confirmed wahoo bites, all of which gave us the slip. One blackfin was all we could rustle up for some variety, but I didn't hear any complaints! Thanks Dale!

Friday, August 14, 2015: 8/14 Hatteras Offshore Fishing Report

Today my friends from Chicago made it down to sling some dolphin!

It was another Wal Mart experience today, and we caught all our dolphin in one stop. Unfortunately the wrist bands that were purchased as a seasick preventative were defective. Half of my crew came down with the 10 hour flu, but I was able to remedy the problem by getting them back on shore. Thanks for a fun morning John, see you next time!
