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

11/4 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.

10/22-26  We had ED and crew out this past Sunday,  We did not hold onto the Wahoo bites, but we came home with four nice ones!  Two of them jumbos!  Butch, Ray and crew were here Sunday through Tues to do some fishing.  The Weather was good for the guys Sunday and the had a full day of bottom fishing with Stacy 7.  They got their triggers and Bs pretty good.  Monday and Tuesday they were schedule on Bill Collector.  We had another large cold front approaching both days.  We did get them out Monday and it was not good conditions, but they are a salty bunch and wanted to try it.  We scraped out a few fish despite high SE winds.  Tuesday was a no go. Wednesday high NW winds kept us to the dock as cool Fall weather settled in.  Thursday, still to much NW wind to get offshore, but we did find the kings along the beach.  Weather looks good next couple of days and hopefully we will have a good offshore report.

9/23.29,30   We had Ron Regan and crew out on the 23rd with a couple of Sails and four nice Wahoo!  Sorry no pic, think camera operator error.  High winds and more storm swell kept us ashore again 24th through28th.  Bill Collector was back out with Thomas More and crew from Dragonfly Pond Works.  Fishing was slower, messed up water conditions from swell, but we managed four nice Wahoo and a Sail.  Winds back up to 20 and gusty by Saturday, Mother Nature not being kind at all.  Our group decided to stay inshore in calm behind the beach.  Water still muddy from all the storm swell, we found a few Spanish and Kings, one AJ.  Fun was still had by all in the calm part of the ocean.  Winds have kept us to the dock since Sunday, finally a break in the forecast!  Light winds forecast rest of week and great Fall weather on the Crystal Coast.  Bill Collector back out tomorrow!

Limit of Dolphin and one for two on Sails.  Thursday we had back to back 1/2 day inshore trips.  Water was still muddy from the weekend blow and swell.  We found a few Spanish on the AM charter and got em a lot better on the PM charter.  Back offshore the last two days with the Wahoo bite a little slower, swell from Jose.  We did manage Citation Wahoo the last two trips with a mixed bag both days.  Several Wahoo bites, but we had a hard time holding onto them.  A good mix of some Triggers yesterday.  Swell from Jose and NE winds have forced to cancel the next two days, hopefully we will be back out Tuesday or Wednesday.  Fall dates Available for late October, November and December.  Come fill your freezer! 252-247-5617

9/7 and 9/8  The last two days were a prime example of looking at the weather morning of trip. 
Bill Collector not tied to the dock yet.  The last two days has seen great weather and good fishing.  Yesterday our good friends from Ohio had some big Wahoo, Dolphin, one Citation Wahoo and a beautiful day.  Today, despite forecast of big swells, winds were light and seas glassy this AM.  Our group enjoyed Wahoo action with some dolphin as well as a Citation Wahoo.  By days end we were seeing some very long period swell from Irma.  Winds have increased this evening and swells starting to build.  Bill Collector will be at the dock next couple days till things change.  At this time looks as if the Carolinas have dodged the bullet with Irma, unfortunately our friends in Florida have not.  We are keeping them in our prayers!
