Miss E means business

Great fishing for Chad Deaton and his crew yesterday on their half day Atlantic Beach fishing charter.  The guys crushed the bluefish on the jigs and also landed a nice grey trout and Atlantic Bonita for a wildcard.  Looks like spring fishing is just about to fire off, If a May fishing trip is on the "to do" list, please give me a call to set  it up.  Thanks guys, look forward to seeing you again soon. ..

It begins.....

First fishing trip of the year.... I'm glad to see some light at the end of winter.  We took the Miss E on a long boat ride Friday, little further than normal, all the way to the break in search of tuna and wahoos.  When we got set out, water conditions were a bit greener than I'd liked and a bit cooler as well, never the less we were on the hunt.  The trolling bite was pretty tough with the cool water conditions, only managing a couple wahoo bites and a king mackerel, so around 11:00 we switched gears and checked on the offshore bottom dwellers.  Not red hot either, but we found some really nice trigger fish, jacks, blackfin snappers, squirrel fish and a few other deep water ones.  Everything on the boat performed well, hoping for a favorable spring and summer weather pattern this year.   If your considering a fishing trip for the Spring or Summer season and have a specific date in mind please book it ahead of time, things are beginning to fill in.

Longest part of winter

Fishing off Morehead City isn't all that bad, from what the few reports have sounded like from the past couple weeks.  Sea bass, king mackerels and unreal wahoo fishing on the break, not too shabby whenever that weather will allow it.  April usually will bring the first push of charters for the season, followed by May which is one of the best fishing months on the calendar.  The Miss E will be sitting pretty in the same spot as last year, waiting on the days to pass, and temps to start the upward swing.  Please don't wait until the last minute to inquire about a fishing charter, especially if a specific date is needed.  I'm looking forward to seeing familiar faces again, soon enough. ..
