We're glad to welcome home the Escape!! Captain Gregg Middleton and mate are gearing up for a fantastic 2018 season and they invite you to step aboard and enjoy a day of Gulf Stream action! Captain Gregg and his crew say they are blessed with year round fishing that rivals any place on earth. Their home at the Oregon Inlet Fishing Center yields the shortest run to the fishing grounds, which equals more fishing time for their guests - you!
Captain Gregg lives for the thrill of the fight! He will target Yellowfin Tuna, White and Blue Marlin, Wahoo and Mahi Mahi, and more using light or heavy tackle, popping, trolling, or kite fishing. Captain Gregg welcomes every opportunity to share his passion and is able to teach you all these fishing techniques, even if you are a beginner, and can provide as much assistance as you may need.
Captain Gregg skillfully navigates this beautiful Ricky Scarborough offshore sport fishing boat, originally built in 1984. To enhance your off-shore experience, boat owners, Ernie and Donna Webb, just completed a major refit in 2017 and has equipped the salon with an air-conditioner, a microwave, a fridge, and reclining leather sofas to provide comfort on the ride to and from the fishing grounds. Powered by a 1150 HP Mann engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 25 knots, this vessel will not waste time traveling to the Gulf Stream waters.
Captain Gregg uses only the best fishing gear, with light tackle ranging from Shimano 20’s-130’s and Penn 30-50-80. They keep it all in pristine condition to make for a safe and enjoyable day on the water for you and your party.
You do have a job, though. Your only job for the day is to enjoy yourself and if you want to learn from the pro’s - pay close attention to the advice they give you! Ready to go??!! Give the Booking Desk a call and make your great Escape today 1-800-272-5199!!
Anglers were in the meat today! The top story belongs to Daniel Stilling fishing on the Fintastic for collecting a trophy citation for his monster blue-fin tuna, weighing in at 597 lbs! Congrats! His angling buddy, Charles Barbee released a chunky blue-fin and collected a trophy citation, as well. Awesome work! Thomas Stevens also collected a trophy citation for releasing a blue-fin, following a 4-hour fight. What a memory!!
Anglers aboard multiple private boats brought in good numbers of yellow-fin tuna, averaging in the 35/45lb range each. One boat also reported in with a 69" blue-fin.

We're seeing some good reports of blue-fin tuna catches, with some nice chunky fish coming to the boat. There were a couple of releases measuring in well beyond 73" last week on the recreational charters. One visiting captain also reported in with good catches of yellow-fin tuna and excellent king mackerel catches in some very warm water.

In-Shore Captain Aaron treated his anglers to an awesome day of drum fishing, throwing in some good numbers of black bass to top off a beautiful day on the water. They enjoyed some good catches of puppy drum and multiple red drum releases.

Even with this wacky "beachy weather" we're having, anglers still brave the elements looking for those tasty tuna!! Of course, our captains work the waters to find their hiding spots and, more times than not, coax them to the hook and hoist them into the fish boxes. This January day was quite successful. Capt Greg and Billon found those yellow-fins and their happy anglers brought home the meat!
If today's limit of yellow-fin is any indication of fishing yet to come, we're in for an exciting season!! Give us a call 1-800-272-5199 and let us get you on the calendar and try your hand at deep sea fishing!
Christmas memories have been made and the celebrations of the beginning of a New Year are history. But, the big question is, "Where did the time go?" The old cliche's become truer with each passing year. You know the ones.... Life is short. Children grow up fast. The most expensive trip is the one you didn't take with your family. Time lost can never be regained. Here's a twist on one....Memories are priceless. Truly, they are priceless........the price will matter less as the event becomes a fond memory. So, buy the fishing trip!! Seriously, put down the fake fishing pole, back away from the screen, and get on the boat!
No matter which boat you choose, the potential for excitement awaits! Imagine spending a day surrounded by hues brighter and bolder than those found in a crayon box. Imagine starting your day with nothing blocking your view to a most gorgeous sunrise; nothing but blue sky, blue water, and brushes of pink, purple, and orange splashing across the sky. And, those creatures of the deep lurking beneath your feet are the stuff memories are made of.
Imagine your youngster's eyes widening at the sight of the rod bending and hearing the reels begin to scream. Doesn't matter what your youngster's age is, they all react the same way and it's a sight you do not want to miss! Imagine your youngster settling into the fight and experiencing a true adrenaline rush, like no other, as they lock into a battle never to be experienced playing a video game. Imagine your youngster pulling on the catch of a lifetime and, regardless what the size or weight is, it will be their personal best, a true accomplishment achieved on their own, with their own power at the helm. That memory will stand alone and replay in bright, vivid color at the mere mention of "remember that time we went to Oregon Inlet Fishing Center and went out fishing......".
Let us help you plan that memory! Give us a call 1-800-272-5199 today. Visit www.oregon-inlet.com.
