4/23 and past week:  Scrappy the last couple of trips .  Choppy seas Friday and Sunday limiting us on where we could fish, but we scraped out a few Wahoo for our salty clients!  Fun still had by all! Winds Saturday forced us to cancel our trip.  Mother Nature has not been very  kind lately.  This past weekend, I had taken rare time off for family.  Bill Collector was under the command of Capt. Ken Kramer for last Saturday and Sunday,  Ken showed our clients a good time with some meat fish and Bill Collectors second Blue Marlin of the season.  Bill Collector mate, Capt. Nathan Newlin ran her Thursday and returned with a good Catch of meat and two nice Wahoo!  We had Capt. Rocky Hardison in the cockpit, I am sure everyone was well entertained!  Thanks to Ken, Nathan and Rocky for covering my few days off.  Bill Collector was in good hands!  Winds are blowing again today as Low Pressure system passes, but starting Wednesday forecast looks great and Bill Collector is back out.  Hopefully with good weather we will have a report of good fishing.  Check out www.billcollectorcharters.com for availability.  Lets go fishing!

Also:  This coming weekend is the Reelin for Research Tournament, a great event for a great cause!  Even if you are not fishing the event, come down to the Morehead City Waterfront and enjoy the excitement of the Tournament! check them out at reelinforresearch.org

4/13  The last few days out, after a few more weather days, have been a mixed bag.  We had a day of outstanding bottom fishing, plenty of big triggers!  Good sign of nice Blackfin Tuna and some Wahoo! Today we had Butch and his crew back out,  they released our first Blue Marlin of the season!  They also had good meat action with a couple of Wahoo and a good mess of Blackfin.

4/4  Mother Nature has not been kind this past weekend and last week.  It is the time of year for good fishing, but also for spring fronts.  We have not had many windows to get out the last few days when we were booked.  Hopefully that is about to do some changing.  We have another large front to pass Thursday and Friday with the weather greatly improving starting Saturday.  The extended forecast for first of next week looks beautiful and Bill Collector is available next Monday through Thursday.  Yesterday was the first decent weather day this week and the Dancin Outlaw was the only boat booked on the Waterfront.  Capt. Thomas had great catch of Wahoo, Yellowfin and Blackfin Tuna!  Fishing good and weather next week looks great, give us a call ! 252-247-5617  Bill Collector back out tomorrow, we hope to have a good report!

3/25  Great crews the last two days!  It was good to get back out.  Beautiful both days!  Yesterday we scraped out a day, four nice Wahoo, two Blackfin and a AJ, pulled off a few more.  Fishing was slow, water conditions were good, very little bait.  A slow day, but beautiful day on the ocean!  Today the Wahoo were still being mean, pulled off several of the aggravating rascals, but held onto five nice ones, a Yellowfin, four Blackfin and a Sail! Fun had by all!

3/17 Great Spring like weather while Bill Collector was hauled for maintenance.  Just as soon as we tried to start fishing old Mother Nature has not been kind.   Our first few trips have been rescheduled due to weather. Its early Spring and we expect to have to deal with wind, but days between fronts are good fishing!  Today we were finally able to go,  weather and water conditions were good.  Bill Collector had a mechanical issue, which forced us home early.  Bill Collector has missed very few days over the years due to mechanical, but it is a boat and crap happens.  Unfortunately we missed a good day, but the issue was addressed and corrected promptly.  ( Many thanks to Bruce and Western Branch Diesel) 
There were three other boats out yesterday.  They reported good catches,  nice Yellowfin Tuna and Wahoo action! Talking with a couple  Captains yesterday evening, sounded like fishing was damn good!  Unfortunately, another frontal passage has forced us to cancel this weekend.  Hopefully we will be back out on our next trip mid-week.

Spring is time for Tuna and we have prime dates available!  Late March and April! Come fill your freezer. www.billcollectorcharters.com
