12/1  Great December weather, light NE winds and mid 60s!  Plenty of nice Kings and big Blackfin Tuna!  Plenty of action and meat for our crew today!  Bill Collector was offshore while a large fleet was inshore chasing giant Bluefin Tuna during the commercial opening.  There were several big BFT taken, but a lot of boats.  The small commercial quota available should be caught up by first of the week  What does that mean for recreational anglers?  It means by next week you can come experience catch and release fishing for these giants, with a whole lot less pressure on the fishery and have the opportunity to take a recreational fish for your freezer.  If interested in battling a fish of your lifetime, give me a call for all detail on BFT charters.  Also, Bill Collector will be available for regular Gulfstream trips through December.  Give us a call for info  Offshore or Giant Bluefin Tuna  252-247-5617

11/28  Bill Collector was back offshore Tuesday with a great crew from Topsail Beach.  We ended our day with some nice Blackfin Tuna, couple of big Wahoo and several Kings.  Fun had by all!  Wed,  Capt. Thomas  made a gamble on the Fall Swordfish and it sure paid off, they boated a nice one 400LB plus and more to the plus!  Fishing is good on the Crystal Coast and it is Bluefin time.  A few of these Giants have started showing up.  Give us a call, weather is beautiful and we have dates open  for Offshore Gulfstream, Giant Bluefin Tuan, Swordfishing or inshore Kings!  Also we are taking reservations for our 2018 season.  Give us a call 252-247-5617

11/4 and past couple of trips:  A strong cold front kept on shore a couple of days the past week.  We got back out last Tuesday with our good friend Richard and crew.  The Wahoo were a little finicky, but the nice Blackfin Tuna bit.  Our day ended with one Citation size Wahoo, two gaffer Dolphin and several nice Blackfin Tuna.  We were back offshore Thursday and we had Capt Chris Russel (The Predator) working the cockpit.  What happens when you take CR Wahoo fishing?  He catches Blue Marlin!  We caught a Blue and were one for two on Sails.   Back offshore again Saturday and there was more Marlin action.  Capt. Mark chambers had a Blue and two Sails early, Bill Collector was two for three on Sails early.  We had a front fast approaching and seas went from calm to rough by mid AM, heavy squalls built in over the stream, so we ducked inshore and finished the day on Kings.  The inshore King bite has been very good, Capt Buddy and Gale Ann had limits of Kings early Saturday before winds came up.   Bill Collector will be running regular Gulfstream trips through December.

GIANT BLUEFIN TUNA:  If some fish start showing up we will be chasing them.  The generally show around Thanksgiving.  If interested in catching one of these Giants, give us a call for details.
