Jerry and friends went on to have a good day on the water.  Plenty of nice Triggers, Blackfin Tuna and a Wahoo.

11/27/16  Yesterday was a little choppy NE, but our salty crew was ready to go fishing!  We fished our way to the NE all day just incase the weatherman was wrong.  The morning was very slow, then we found a nice current edge around lunch catching some Dolphin, couple of Blackfin and a Wahoo.  Weather defiantly effected our fishing, but at the end of the day fun had by all!

Bill Collector will be available for Offshore trips, Tuna and Wahoo till Christmas! 
Giant Bluefin Tuna: A couple of Bluefin have been caught this past week by recreational anglers!  Several places of BFT have been sighted off Cape Lookout as well!  The Commercial season for BFT is Closed at this time.  What does this mean for recreational angling?  It means your chance at catching one of these giants is better due to a lot less pressure on the fish!  Recreational bag limits are still open at this time, but this is predominantly a catch and release fishery.  If you have ever wanted to angel one of these giants now is the time.  Give us a call for info on Giant BFT fishing!  252-247-5617
