Today was an exciting day of fishing here at Oregon Inlet Fishing Center. One of our boats came in with a grand slam and a meat slam! All the boats had good catch and release white marlin, blue marlin and sailfish, as well as wahoo, yellowfin tuna, dolphin and gaffer dolphin and a limit of tile.
Our Offshore boats that were fishing a tourament came back in flying thier Billfish flags, along with some Yellowfin Tuna. Our Nearshore boats came back with great catches of Bluefish, and a few nice sized Red Drum. Our Inshore boats came back with nice sized Cobia.
Squally weather kept most of the boats from fishing. Three inshore boats caught from 25 to 27 tailor bluefish. An openboat caught and released blacktip sharks. One of the sharks was estimated to have been 80 inches in length and qualified for a citation. Another open boat had very good speckled trout fishing in the morning. The Langly family were all outfitted in fluorescent yellow tshirts. Six members fished on one of the boats that caught 27 bluefish. The picture showed fluorescence emitted from the tshirts into neihboring atmosphere. I have never seen this before. I have worked with fluoresence and know that it has been used to produce powerful lasers. From reports here and upsound it looks good for fishing in general speckled trout, flounders and latter on striped bass.
Offshore boats caught yellowfin tuna, dolphin and wahoo. Citations included three white marlin, two sailfish and a 44 pound dolphin. Inshore boats turned from trolling for tailor bluefish and spanish mackerel to wreck fishing for amberjacks. There were a lot of amberjacks, a kingmackeral and a wahoo were caught as well. Some tailor bluefish and spanish mackerel were also caught.Open boats had good speckled trout fishing. Half day trips caught speckled trout in the morning and two drum, speckled trout and one drum in the afternoon. An allday trip caught a 25.5 pound false albacore and four drum. One boat caught and released sharks then turned to speckled trout fishing, doing well on both. Miss Oregon Inlet caught croakers, spots and flounders.
