Yesterday the Watkins family came out and hit it big right out of the gates. We trolled up many fat stripers into the low forties. The the mission of the morning was complete Young gun Jacob Watkins landed his first big fish with his family. Everyone was happy. The bite died around 10.
Headed back out in the afternoon... well never marked a scale never had a bite even close to dark. Every boat seemed to be having tough luck. The bite had just shut down. Sorry for the crappy afternoon trip. All our fish were released the last few days.
Trawler season has open up again today and business as usual. I guess there is a "little more quota" left in the endless quota.
Looks like weather will keep us in for a day or two. Fishing has become a little spotty but if you get in them they seem to be fat cats. Thanks everyone for fishing.

The 3rd of Feb we tried to fish but could not get out across the rough bar. We then noticed hundreds of discarded dead or dying stripers. We went back to the dock bummed about what we had seen. I did not even know but my guys went over to the coast guard house and complained. Nothing could be done. Other boats that did make it into the ocean saw what was said to me to be worse "than the couple days back in January." There are even some helicopter shots. I will try to get some up there for you. Thirty charter boats the next day got skunked. Interesting. This picture is from last night from a lady beachcoming and stopped counting at 90 decomposing rock on the beach. Four seasons ago I made a "last buffalo" post trying to bring some light to this topic. I will try to post some contact info for anyone interested. I know there is a meeting open for public hearing coming up soon, so maybe this can shed some light on this debacle. What is right is right.
Well the fishing has starting to pick back up and boats are catching again so not all is lost...

Sunday we went North up to Kitty Hawk and whacked them pretty darn good with the Johnson party. We landed them jigging and trolling.
Monday we got pushed off a day with strong winds and rough seas. Yesterday the fog bowl was back out but we found excellent jigging with super Capps whacking 50 plus fish jigging in huge clounds of striper marks. It was pretty cool we had 2.5 knots of downtide and we could just about dead stick the shads and we kept two-four fish on all morning and early afternoon.
30+ mph winds kept us off today. Thanks everyone!!
