Oregon Inlet Fishing Report May 3, 2014
Fight-n-Lady out of Oregon Inlet Fishing Center reports that fishing changed up a little bit and that there werent quite as many bites. Capt Sam was able to put his clients on four nice tuna and managed to land an 87 pound mako shark as well. Additonal Oregon INlet fishing reports include Fintastic which saw good tuna fishing on Friday and a much slower tuna bit on Saturday – even though the weather was far improved. The offshore fishing bite was filled with gaffer dolphins and mako sharks on Saturday.
Other boats out of Oregon Inlet were reporting strong dolphin action and scattered tuna as well. Many captains are still waiting on more yellowfin tuna to migrate north. Limits of tile fish are still being caught with consistency.
Legacy Fishing Charters reported higher numbers of boats due to the increased weather outlook which could have affected the offshore action. The days catch still saw five tuna and a few nice dolphin in spite of the slow bite.
Point Runner’s Oregon Inlet fishing report is similar to that of the rest of the fleet, with better numbers of yellowfin tuna around the previous day but much slower today. Clients managed some dolphin and released a smaller mako shark.
Rounding out the Oregon Inlet Fishing Reports i s Trophy Hunter, reporting slower action due to the increased pressure but still finding three yellowfin tunas and a half dozen gaffer dolphin. Finishing out the trip was a solid limit of tile fish.
The fleet is certainly looking for the tuna action to improve of the coming weeks and clients are certainly seeing good bites from dolphin, mako’s and tile fish. The weather outlook looks consistent for the next 24-48 hours.
