Fishing Report Gulf Stream 4-23-2010

April 26th, 2010 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

Had the 1st gulf stream trolling trip with Dale,Scott, Steffen,Bill and Dave all local Wilmington anglers. The weather started good but became not so nice later in the day. The good news is that the warm water finally moved in over the break and the Wahoo came with it. Once we had the lines out it didn’t take long to get a double header of Wahoos but once broke the main line. The action was great once you ran across the school of fish most of the time all lines were hit but with typical Wahoo fishing you miss a lot of bites. We did go 4 for 4 on hooked fish. The largest fish close to 50 lbs skied the bait and was 12 feet in the air. The SW winds kicked up in the early afternoon and the hard current stacked up the swells. Called it a day with plenty of fresh Wahoo steaks for the crew.

Fishing Report Deep Jigging 4-20-2010

April 21st, 2010 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

Had Sami/Paul and the guys come down from www.saltywatertackle.com for a couple days of jigging but the weatherman cut it to 1 day so we made the best if it. Started in 140 feet and found a few AJs and a nice African. We had a temperature change from 68 to 73 degrees move through in the morning and once this went by the AJs started chewing. We had a lot of quality fish but only one large female. Evan caught the largest fish of the day which was 49 inches x 32 inch girth. Once the tide changed everything seemed to slow. Received a call from Chip who was down south on a great top water Black fin bite. So I pointed the boat south and opened up the Yamahas and ran 40 plus knots into a hot top water Black fin bite and it was on with fish chasing flying fish everywhere. In fact we had a flyer run into the side of the boat and Paul pick it up for a few pictures. We also did some jigging in between running down the tuna. The AJs were hungry but the sharks were even more hungry. We left very late with the tuna still hammering the flyers. Overall a good day with Africans, AJs, Almacos, Blackfin and the sharks.
