Bluefin tuna 140 to 215 pounds were docked from several boats that fished Sunday from Oregon Inlet Fishing Center, a report said on the marina’s website. A 350- to 400-pound 83-incher was also released on the trips. Yellowfin tuna and blackfin tuna were also decked on the boats. “All in all, a good day,” the report said. Trips also fished Thursday, and bluefins swam plentiful. Boats from the marina also sailed last Tuesday. “The bluefin weren’t biting, but yellowfin sure were!” the report said. The trips returned with seven yellowfins, mostly 25 to 30 pounds. Visit Website.
What a day of offshore fishing! a report said Monday on the website from
The Roost Bait & Tackle at Teach’s Lair Marina. One boat bottom-fished, coming in with golden tilefish, black belly rosefish and groupers. Another tuna fished, bagging a yellowfin tuna, a blackfin tuna and “a batch of tiles,” it said. Another boat that tuna fished sailed north for bluefin tuna that day, returning with a 58-incher. Boats from the television show Wicked Tuna are also fishing from the marina, and one of the vessels returned afterhours, but was rumored to bag a bluefin from the day’s fishing. A few boats sailed for puppy drum on Pamlico Sound, and no drum were known to be caught from the sound that day, apparently because the bay’s temperature dropped 10 degrees suddenly, the day before. Wind also blew up hard from northeast at midday during the trips. Before the wind, surf fishing for the drum was good at the Frisco Pier. A few were also banked along the entire stretch of beach from Cape Point south to Hatteras. The pier is within that stretch. Lots of bunker swam the surf, and the surf temperature was right for drum fishing. Great all-around day of fishing, from offshore to the surf to the sound, the report said. “You can tell its spring when we start doing that,” it said. Visit Website.
