Started the day on a weedline and Charley, Irving, Robert, Speedy & crew boated a nice catch of 5 - 28# gaffers on light standup tackle, then to end the day boated 30 -50# class yellowfin tuna.

FINALLY THEY STARTED BITING!

Robert Crowder, Charles Townes, Irving Prichit and company patiently waited all morning with no action, and when we were all resigned to a slow day, the tuna finally started biting....didn't have a pin pot till 1AM, but then we had good action, boated 30-50# yellowfin one and two at a time for 2 hours of great fishing.

BIGEYES!

We started off looking for 'gaffer' dolphin which had been productive the last few days, and found some decent conditions but smaller fish then I was hoping for and the grass line took me in the wrong direction..... I thought.... but some guys up above me hit some bigeyes, so we ran up north, but by the time we got there a pretty large fleet had developed and I was thinking we should not have left fish to find fish.... but we got lucky.... I marked some bigeyes, but did not get a bite, and due to the number of boats, it took 20 minutes to get back to the spot but dammed if when I got there depth charges exploded behind the OBSESSION and three poles bent over and line was going away from us quikly..... Larry Lohman, from Naples Florida, (149#), Roger Riley, from Prince Fredrick, VA (173#) and Billy Poss, from Huntingtown, MD ( 174#) did fantastic, boating all three bigeyes in under an hour, their biggest fish ever!! Where was Tommy Palmer???

NICE CLASS OF DOLPHIN!

Mike, Bill, Joe, Pasquale & Ed drove down after work yesterday, got to the boat at 4AM, as they have been doing for 10 years or more, and had action all day long as we started on a weed line and picked away at 5 0- 20# dolphin, caught a few tunas in the process on light tackle, a surprise king mackerel, and the we hit 4 tunas at one time to end the day, of which we caught three, and went home with a box full of fish and a full stomach..... these guys bring the best custom hogies and buffalo shrimp known to man!! Love them lunatics!!

NICE CATCH FOR MY BIRTHDAY!

Seas were still substantial after the tropical storm and only a few boats went today, but I was glad to have a tough group.... Paul Winters, Becky & son Scott caught a scattered but nice size yellowfin troughout the day, but with time running out we had about 5 get after us and missed every damm one of them.....Lee and I were about to scream, but we rerigged, made a circle and hooked 7!! Paul, Becky & Scott cranked them all in and we were homeward bound!!

EXTREME DOPHIN FISHING

I'm glad David Cook & his crew from Deleware are tough cause it was all you wanted yesterday..... 7 ft seas from the tropical storm off South Carolina hit was when we got into the hot water and we set out along a hard to follow change that was a hobgobeld mess to say the least.... Took 15 minutes for me and my dock partner Bull on the Sea Toy to get the courage to lower the outriggers, but all in all the day went well once we got things dialed in..... picked away at 5 -20# dolphin all day long they guys all hung in there and caught a lot of the fish on light tackle..... had so much fun they booked the same day again for next year!

TROPICAL STORM DID"T SLOW THIS GROUP UP!

Kevin O'brien and crew, who have fished with us the last 5 years were not worried about the tropical storm south of us and conditions were better than we expected.

Paul Ebert, Phil Quam & their crew from Maryland have fished with me for a number of years, but said their trip a few days ago was as good as they had it�.we picked at fish all day, catching 15 1/2 yellowfin tuna from 20 - 40 lbs, 5 nice dolphin, and we released several mako sharks that were too small to keep and had several large ones destroy our rig. Had action all day long.

GREAT FISHING ALREADY

Scott Sumners and I had a not unpleasant boat ride home from Mexico two weeks ago.... made the trip in 4 days....choppy crossing the Gulf to Key West, but nice weather the rest of the way.... crossed the Gulf in 21 hours, stayed in Key West overnight, ran up to Ft Pierce the next day, got fuel at the yacht club and mullet and stone crabs from KP around sunset and headed back out....made it to Fernadina beach by sunrise, fueled up and kept going, making it to Southport by sunset....stayed there overnight and made it back home the next day.

My first charter is April 11 but with Oregon Inlet temporarily closed, don't know what I will do next week....Dredges should begin work this week so hopefully we will have a way out of Oregon Inlet maybe in the next 2 weeks.

Had a great 3 days of skiing with my brother and his two sons at Breckinridge and Aprapahoe Basin this past weekend.

Paul & Becky, on their fourth and last day, had great sailfish action, catching 13 sailfish out of 21 bites, including a double and a triple header and that was all before 2 PM.... after then the bonitos moved in.... could not keep a ballyhoo out there..... had sails chasing teasers and bonitos getting the pitch baits before the sails could.... after they ripped on of my chain teasers off and destroyed one of my dredges we called it a day.

On their second half day fishing trip, Shiela, Tiffany & Katie each caught 2 sailfish.... the girls are great anglers and did a good job in choppy seas. Their first time down here, they had a blast and are planning on making Isla Mujeres and annual adventure. They kindly took Scott & I out for a great dinner at Morgan's restaurant where I made a pig of myself eating two lobster chili rellenos!

FULL MOON ACTION!

Paul Winter & Becky, on their third of four days fishing had good action today, releasing 10 sailfish out of 19 bites, including 2 double headers.....we were only 1/2 hour from the island and the waves of bonitos terrorizing us yesterday were elsewhere....with full moon coming up, the next few days should be good fishing and then we are done!

Choppy seas and waves of bonitos flashing in the waves....so many we had to vacate the area wanted to fish but mangaged to find some bait and sailfish.... Katie, Shiela & Tiffany, from Edenton NC along with Kevin Wuchter & his friend....everyone caught a sailfish in a half day trip..... I only do these in March when the fish are close and the season winding down...the ladies will be fishing with us again on Tuesday and we have trips tomorrow and Thursday and then prepare to head back to North Carolina.
