Dead Last Don't Taste Good Either

But I will go with Capt. James anywhere he takes us.   We probably would have caught more fish if we weren't trying to win, but for two and a half days we were on the hunt for the winning bite that BC Angel found this afternoon.   Congrats to the Sea Angel on their victory.  For us, regrouping and strategizing for next year.

Skunk tastes bad

Looking for the hero bite and ended up with the zero bite.

very long day

Wow.  We saw 6 fish, one was a blue marlin that didn't eat.  one was a sail that didn't eat and our team caught only 1 of 4 sailfish bites.  To be honest, after today, I'm glad to at least be on the board without a zero.  Hopefully hero tomorrow with the lead within reach of every boat in the tournament.


It ain't blue marlin or tarpon but......

......sometimes you just have to match the tackle with what you are catching.  Epic shad bite at Weldon right now, stripers won't be long now, just a couple of weeks away.   Enjoy the pics and report from Capt. Mitch. 
 


Hey George, customers said they caught their biggest shad ever and the most shad they've ever caught on a trip.  It was indeed a barnburner!  Got them on fly singles doubles doubles on fly double doubles.
If anglers are attempting to fish Weldon under current conditions I can't stress how careful they need to be.  Hire a guide it will save you time and money.-----Capt. Mitch

Capt. Mitchell Blake Report


Fishing report,
Plenty of nice Stripers in the low ground of the Roanoke.  Also Shad fishing remains the best I've seen and I use the Shad word plural.  White and  Hickory.  

Stripers are starting to get more consistent

This is going to look a lot different tomorrow


Dixie Deer

Come check us out at the Raleigh fairgrounds at the Dixie Deer Classic. Greg and Jennings will be there and it looks like Mitch may be dropping in.

Here are some pics from Mitch and his recent report from the Roanoke.  Sounds like Greg is doing about the same on the Neuse.
 50 to100 fish shad days on light tackle and fly.

The Roanoke Striper bite has been awesome casting and fly, season in open for keepers.

Pamlico, Striper bite is full throttle, some Reds in the mix and some great Perch jerking.

on the way to the awards banquet......

......to congratulate the winnners.  
Three minutes after lines in the water we released our first sail, but could not hold on to the lead with 21 sailfish releases for the day.  We only missed 3 sails so our hook up ratio was impressive.   The minature striped marlin that we missed 3 times in the same turn hurt us.  That one costs us the daily and potentially third place.   It does feel good to be a little more competitive.

report, pics and stuff

Caught enough to stay in the game, but we need a big day today.   Here are some pics that have been hanging out in my inbox.....

Good trout bite with Greg

Had a black marlin kick my but

Thank you Marc for the invite to go fishing.  I'm sorry that I pushed you out of the way on your own boat to grab the rod that had the big black marlin on it.  I never had a fish that beat me up so bad that I vomitted after release.   I think we were both relieved not to be attached any longer.  Anna put some video up on facebook.
