One of those days in which tuna were very active on the surface but were disinclined to bite. In some cases birds added a complication by going after the baits. Water condtions were affected by a recent storm. It was pointed out by a mate that last year tuna fishng got very good around the beginning of July and continued through September. It looks like this yeasr could be a repeat of last year tuna wise with both yellowfins and blackfins. Two white marlin and a sailfish were caught and released. Inshore boats caught tailor bluefish and spanish mackerel. Two inshore boats caught trigger fish, black sea bass, two cobias and a dolphin bottom fishing on an all day trip.

Two white marlin and a sailfish were caught and released.

Let's start off with a Happy Father's Day to all our dads out there. Today we only had nearshore and inshore boats fishing, as the seas were too rough for the offshore boats to go out. Our nearshore trips had catches of spanish mackerel and bluefish and the inshore trips came in with speckled trout and blues.
Unfortunately, Mother Nature was working against us today. High winds prevented our offshore fleet from fishing. We did have nearshore and inshore boats go out. Our nearshore boats came in with catches of bluefish and spanish mackerel and the inshore catches were blues and some keeper speckled trout.
Today there was too much wind. The offshore charters did not fish. Several inshore boats did some fishing in the sound and caught speckled trout. Nearshore charters had good bluefish action. Miss oregon Inlet fishing in the sound caught sea mullet and assorted other fish. Shai Qweck age 8 caught a nice sheepshead fishing on Miss Oregon Inlet aided by his freind Ben Shulman about the same age and his father Jake Qweck all from DC. They had a delightful trip I could tell.
