Hopefully, bluefin tuna are on the way to the local coast, and great catches of them will be made soon, Oregon Inlet Fishing Center’s Facebook page said Saturday. The fish usually arrive before long, and when they do, reports about the angling are posted frequently on the marina’s website. The most recent report about any fishing was posted on Dec. 28 on the site. Visit Website.
Yellowfin tuna showed up in a big way, a report said Wednesday on Teach’s Lair Marina’s website. Charter boats began catching the tuna to 35 pounds in the previous days, and also decked mahi mahi sometimes. Anglers from the marina this week smoked blackfin tuna, yellowfins and mahi, good catches, the next report from the marina said, posted yesterday. The fish can show up all winter, and bluefin tuna might appear in the area shortly. Pick your favorite captain, and go catch! the report said. Visit Website.
No bluefin tuna were docked the past couple of days at Captain Stacy Fishing Center, but a few were last week, Terry Willis from the marina said. She was unsure about size, but guessed they weighed 200 or 300 pounds. Sometimes they might’ve weighed more this season, like a 300- to 400-pounder shown on Captain Stacy’s Facebook page in a photo posted on Jan. 3. That fish was mentioned here in last week’s report.
