Had a group of guys down from Raleigh for the weekend for a full day live bait trip. The morning started great with flat seas and a light NE wind. The 1st hour we have plenty of action with Mahi, a couple of sharks, hound fish and a nice king that the Barracuda took for breakfast. There was bait everywhere on top and birds diving. Then the winds picked up with a few clouds and everything shutdown. Continued to work and tried a little bottom fishing for a while. Caught a couple grouper and a Mahi on the light line. Moved out to a 25 mile wreck and caught a 45 lb AJ on 20 lb tackle. Great job by the angler this was a tough fish. The winds let off later in the afternoon and the fish started eating again. Caught a few more Mahi and then the long line started screaming. 350 yards went off the reel quickly. After a 15 minute fight we gaffed a solid 25 lb king.

Took a great family down from NY on a 3/4 day live bait trip. Caught plenty of live bait 1st thing and headed out 10 miles. The winds were SW with a 3 foot chop. Had a nice king quickly and the 2 Jr. anglers made short work of it. Then things slowed down so we moved to a 12 wreck for AJs. We caught one nice AJ but they were not very aggressive. Headed out 20 miles for cleaner water and had plenty of action. The big fish of the day was a solid 23 lb king that  took 30 minutes to bring to the gaff. We had plenty of action with 5 nice kings and a couple of Mahi. Headed in before the winds picked up and the afternoon thunder storms came through.
