Gone baby Gone!

Well hurricane Sandy came and now is gone. Everyone prepped moved boats and waited to see what would happen while we ate,had a few cocktails, and watched football. Rain, few downed trees, huge ocean swells, over wash and some flooding. Fishing was fantastic prior to the storm. Everything seemed to be biting. Hope we get back on em after water settles after a few more days. Finally got back outside today since things calmed down. Took the kids to play a while on the beach. All kinds of neat things washed up. Conchs, coral, sea clams, starfish, bottles, driftwood , horseshoe crabs, heck buddy Dave found a live 9 lb lobster that is now safe at the aquarium. They said at the aquarium it was over fifty years old. I hope everyone faired well and things are good!

Nice Bass!

We went wreck hopping looking for Sea Bass and Trigger fish. The fish were happy to play along. We could have caught more if would have pulled out the big spinning gear,but the eight and ten pound test was to much fun. One of the bass was a two ounce jig or a hand full of ice shy of 7lbs! Nice work guys. Thanks Capt.Ches

Cb what in the world?

Fishing the last few days has been trout and puppy drum. Had the opportunity to fish with Jr and lovely Haley yesterday after catching a few sharks in the ocean we tried around the inlet. Speckled trout decided to commit suicide. We landed fish after fish in the 16-18 inch range tossing light jigs. We kept a few and let many many more! Sometimes my job is ok!

Crummy weather good fishing

Bunched up some pics of some trips the last few days. Weather has kept us inside fishing the backwater. Water temps are still warm enough and the fish are cooperative. Speckled trout, flounder, sheepshead, blues, gray trout, and puppy drum have been biting! We have been jig fishing and using cutbait. Thanks to everyone for fishing! It's been nice to have you guys come and fish year after year with us!

Had the opportunity to fish with a ole buddy the other morning. Pete Rodrigues, lovely wife Heather, dad Capt. Ron, (used to own diary mart on beach rode in nags head, old school killer place, i am sure some locals remember! ) and young son Eli. The trout were biting. Eli also landed the biggest flounder. Then we trolled up some blues. Topped off the am with a 55lb cobia that was heading south for the winter that was swimming in the back of a ray! What a great way to introduce this young man to obx fishing!

Weird Fish! Smooth pufferfish

On a trip the other day with some great clients we landed a fish we had never seen before. Couple seasoned Capts at the dock at Oregon inlet could not identify either. So after thinking it was a boxfish Chestola identified as a smooth pufferfish. I has poisonous skin and organs. We released it to go home and swim with other pufferfish. Pretty cool to see a new fish!!!!
