Summary: Billfish!

Full Report:


After a report of some billfish in the area the offshore fleet switched their gear to target marlin today! The fleet reported releasing a good number of white marlin as well as putting some dolphin in the box. Don’t be fooled there were still some tuna to be caught today as well! Nearshore reports consisted of limits of amberjacks and tilefish as well as spanish mackerel and seabass. Anglers in the sound this morning had plenty of action with catch and release stripers and reported “good trout fishing” with a total of 5 keeper trout caught. Fishing has been pretty good and we are hopeful that it will only improve as we move into August. Don’t miss an opportunity to get “hooked up” with the best and book your trip today!!! Reservations can be made online or by calling the booking desk at 252. 473.3906.

Billfish are starting to show up and we just got in the Pirates Cove Billfish Tournament shirts!!! Coincidence? I think not!!! Be sure to check out the design and get your shirt today before they are gone. You can order online, but more options are available in the Ship’s Store.

Don’t forget that tomorrow night we will be hosting a fundraising event for North Carolina Watermen United featuring some of the captains from Wicked Tuna! The event will start at 6 at the Pavilion. Tickets are $35 at the door. Come out and support!
