LET IT BE....OIFC
I know everyone is enjoying this cooler weather, but I want the SUN BACK!!! Its starting to get on my nerves. We are still catching fish rain or shine so we can't complain too much. There were 28 White Marlin and 5 Sailfish caught today out of 22 of our boats. I would feel comfortable saying that roughly 11 of them were fishing for them. The others were Tuna fishing. We had a Bigeye come in early weighing 149 Lbs which is a Citation! They have to be 100 Lbs in order to turn one in. The Yellowfins were some studs also, our biggest one weighed was 67 Lbs. Citation for those is 70 but it was close. Other fish caught were Blackfin Tunas, some Dolphin, Tilefish, Black Sea Bass and a very nice but rare Codfish. The Tournament is still rockin', The Rigged Up and The Pelican both released 7 White Marlin today! Rigged Up is holding 2nd place as of right now, along with Trophy Hunter in 8th, Legacy in 9th, Bi-Op-Sea in 10th and Pelican in 11th. Let's keep our fingers crossed and say a Fisherman's prayer for them as they fish their last day! Stay focused guys, today is your day!!!

Other than Offshore our Inshore have been staying steady on the Speckled Trout on their AM and PM trips. Its giving us all a trout fishing 'itch' every time they come home with them. There have been Puppy Drum mixed in also with an occasional nice Bluefish or Nice keeper Flounder. Early yesterday morning a little boy woke his dad up saying he wanted to go catch a Flounder. His dad was able to come down to the Fishing Center early enough to book an AM Inshore trip. He must have really wanted that Flounder some kinda bad to get his old man up that early, but he ended up getting that flounder too! Made my day to hear that! Awesome job buddy!
Nearshore boats had some Bluefish this time around. If you've never had Bluefish fishcakes before you need to go get yourself an Outer Banks Locals cookbook and learn how to cook them! That's one of our favorite things for breakfast down here. Do yourself a favor and get on one of our boats and bring home the bacon. We are booking trips all day if you want to call us as early as 5AM until we close at 7PM. We can get you on the boat that is just right for you! Make- Up trips are $292 per person for Offshore and the Headboat is fishing 2 trips per day all the way until Saturday. Sundays are the only day the Miss Oregon Inlet does not fish. Take your kids fishing before you go home and get ready for school! Our Captains and Mates are all some of the best people around and are sure to make you feel right at home on the water. Don't be afraid of a little rain either. Yesterday the weather was still perfect to go fishing rain or not. It was just as slick calm and gorgeous out there.
