No fishing news since Saturday. However, we do have an inshore light tackle charter scheduled for today. Bluefin tuna fishing has been outstanding when the weather permits charters to go out. The photo of a released bluefin was sent in by one of our captains. The angler was John O'Brien. The bluefin had an estimated weight of 375 pounds and measured 84 inches. Great fishing, John.
Today was a good day on the water. We had four offshore boats go out and they all had bluefin tuna releases, one boat brought in a 62 inch bluefin and another caught two dolphin. We also had an inshore boat go out, however he has not yet returned at the time of this writing.
Weather was not the greatest but we did have an inshore boat go out in the afternoon. They returned back to the dock with a 63 inch bluefin tuna. This was caught within a 1/2 mile from shore. This was quite a surprise. They were scouting for stripers or whatever was out there to be caught. What a great afternoon of fishing.
We had 2 offshore charters out today. The bluefin tuna were hard to find but we did a catch of a few yellowfin tuna. More wind and cold weather coming today. Maybe with only 1 day of warm weather the water won't warm up too much. We are stilling looking for some stripers. We have an inshore charter scheduled for Tuesday afternoon. Hope for a good report if they make it out. More news as we fish.
We do not have any offshore boats out today due to high winds, however we are looking forward to a good day of fishing tomorrow. Saturday we have six offshore trips scheduled and two near shore trips. If you're interested in signing up for a make-up charter, you can go on our website at www.oregon- inlet.com.

Weather has kept the boats in this week. We did have a nearshore boat out yesterday. Plenty of dogfish but no sign of stripers. The stripers are running about 3 weeks late due to such a mild winter so far. Friday weather looks good and we have an offshore charter going out. If you would like to go fishing there is plenty of availablity and makeup charters are availableif you don't have a full party of six. More news as we have fish.
