Oregon Inlet Fishing Report May 19th, 2014

Many captains reported an uptick in yellowfin tuna activity and action which is great to see.  As the charter boat Pelican puts it – its hard to decide what to do, do you run offshore and shoot for some yellowfin or sight cast for bruiser cobia.  SO why not go for both.  Was little breezy this morning but the wind laid out later in the morning for some good fishing.  The charter Fishin Frenzy also came across some Orca’s and managed to shoot a quick video – see more down below.

Oregon Inlet Fishing Report May 17th, 2014

Today was the kind of day that everyone knew could happen and prayed would happen.  The bigger question for captains and crew was do we run offshore for gaffer dolphin, and a shot at yellowfin tuna and maybe a marlin – or do we stay inshore and search out the cruising cobia that are showing up.  Some crews opted to do a little bit of both – but most every boat hit pay dirt with their decision.

Oregon Inlet Fishing Report May 13th, 2014

Today was a good day for both the offshore and inshore fleets, with fairly good weather and seas averaging 2-3 feet.  The Oregon Inlet fishing report from the inshore captains has been very good for quite a while with plenty of bluefish providing for some fun with some spanish mackerel mixed in.  This has also been a pretty good stretch for false albacore. The offshore charters have still been able to locate good gaffer dolphin, though the numbers have been a little scattered. [Read more...]
