Fishing Report 6-25-2011 through 6-27-2011

I had Gustavo and Roberto return to NC from Brazil for 4 days of fishing. The weather man was not kind and we canceled the 1st day. Day #2 we took our time in 4 foot seas and started around 20 miles. We had AJs on live bait all day until late in the afternoon when they shutdown. The guys kept count ( I was too busy unhooking fish) and we landed 50 fish between 25 and 50 lbs. Day #3 headed off shore to some deep wrecks in 110 feet. No action at the 1st wreck and moved out to 120 feet. Finally started getting some fish but small AJs. Roberto landed a nice 15 lb king. Decided to try a inshore a few miles and finally the wind let off and the ocean went flat. After a couple of drifts we decided to through a popper and it didn’t take long when it hit the water 100 AJs followed it to the boat and it was on for 4 hours. To be honest it was impossible to keep track on how many fish we landed but 1 drift was 1 1/2 miles with non stop action. The guys got so tried of fighting fish we took the hooks off the poppers just to watch them hit the plug on top. Sorry I didn’t get a lot of good photos for obvious reasons. The last day was a short day since the guys had a late afternoon flight. Caught plenty of fish on live bait but the ocean was too rough for poppers. Also landed a couple nice Gags on live bait. The high light was a 8 foot Hammerhead shark eating a 30 lb AJ. The was a site to see. The guys took some great videos and I hope to see them in a couple weeks once they get home and post them on U-tube.

Fishing Report Gulf Stream 6-4-2011

June 5th, 2011 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

Had Dale, Sean, John and Don back for a Gulf Stream trolling trip. The ride out was OK with a east swell/wind. Started in shallow in 135 feet and only had Cuda action. Later in the morning found a large area of matted weeds and did some drifting with spinning tackle and landed a couple small Mahi. Ran off shore to 850 feet after hearing a current edge was forming on the radio. There was a beautiful current line with weeds and it didn’t take long before the 1st reel started screaming. Sean caught the 1st nice Bull. The action was not wide open but steady with all quality fish. In addition, caught some nice fish on the spinning tackle when a school followed one of the big Bulls to the boat. Ended up with 10 Mahi and 6 of them over 20 lbs with the largest close to 30 lbs.
