Oregon Inlet Fishing Report May 9, 2014
Offshore boats are experiencing a great offshore dolphin bite as well as some mako, blackfin tuna and the occasional scattered yellowfin and some amberjacks. Reports from further south suggest that the yellowfin tuna bite isnt that far away. Weather for the coming weekend looks like 15-20 knot winds from the south west with waves 2-4 feet.
Legacy fishing out of Oregon Inlet Fishing Center reported a great day offshore, with conditions a little slow early on but quickly picked up. Fishing a grass line and sticking with it quickly paid off. Legacy was able to locate school after school of gaffer sized dolphin. In total 51 gaffer dolphin were caught.
The captain and crew of the Skiligal quickly found the schools of hungry dolphin after having a few days off. Obsession Charters were in search of yellowfin tuna – after finding solid grass they were hooked up – but with dolphin. The crew was busy all day landing dolphin up to 22 pounds in size.
Bite Me Sportfishing had the same good fortune offshore, finding an abundant number of gaffer sized dolphin. The crew was also able to locate and hookup with some nice blackfin tuna. Rounding out their day was a shot at a blue marlin and a sailfish, but they were unable to connect with either fish.
