9/17 Hatteras Offshore Fishing Report

Josh, John and Stye fished with me again today, and boy did they ever pick two beautiful days to be offshore!

Our day began right where it ended yesterday, with a beautiful sailfish hook up, off the teaser. Josh angled him to the boat perfectly. We searched way out in the deep and back inside the hundred for some dolphin. Finally I found a couple of floats that held some fish and we wound up with about 40, including a couple nice gaffers. We caught a couple of blackfins over a wreck, so I made Justin drag out the jigging rods for a shot at some tunas on the jigs. We didn’t have any luck with the blackfins but the amberjacks were hungry so we caught a few of them to pass some time. We found out the blue marlin like to eat amberjack, as one tried to eat a fish on the way up! In the afternoon we had another sailfish encounter and missed a wahoo strike. Thanks for two great days guys, I can’t wait to do it again!
