The Hatteras offshore fishing report for today is OUTSTANDING ACTION!
First of all, the weather was perfect. It was slick calm and cool. We started out our morning hooking a sailfish, and somehow, ten jumps and five minutes into the fight, the leader broke. Just one of those freak things I guess. Anyhow, we got in position for some dolphin action, and when they found us, it was "katy bar the door". We caught or limit of BIG bailers, and a couple of gaffers, in two or three stops. Next, we had another shot at a sailfish on a teaser. This time everything went perfect and Blake released his first sail. Next we had a big wahoo skyrocket on a teaser, just to get everybody’s attention, but two baits later, he made the mistake of getting hooked. Brent did a great job of landing the 37 pounder on a TLD 20. After that, and close to the end of the day, we raised a trippleheader of sailfish. Only one of them was willing to take a bait, and he pulled off, but it was great to see all the fish in the spread! Thanks guys for a wonderful day offshore. Enjoy all the fish and I’ll see you next time!
