Capt. Joe Ward says.....
After a few warm days, the water temps are rising and recent reports from Joe and Capt. Gary Dubiel indicate that a lot of trout made it through the freeze. Good news!
If you're tough enough to fish with the animal.....
"25-30 NE was what it blew on us yesterday offshore. 8-12 ft about every 6 seconds................Yellowfins, blackfins and wahoo made
the trip back to the dock with us. They are arriving. "

Offhsore the guys are doing good with the tunas and a few dolphin and wahoo.
These warm temps are getting things cranked up at the Roanoke, stripers are in the river and making their way up to Weldon.....

cool, wet and grey
Sounds like striper/shad fishing is pretty good. My dad's even catching them out of his own boat.....
Anna and I are working on the next newsletter that should be out soon.
Check us out this weekend at the Cape Fear Wildlife Expo and NC Sportsman Magazine Fishing School in Wilmington.
From Capt. James:
"8 sailfish and 3 mahi today boss it hard to belive that we didnt catch any meat fish with your guys"
I was looking for some fresh fish before leaving Costa Rica, but all we caught were billfish the last 3 days!!!!
Seems like we're averaging about 10/day.

Fishing at home
4 hour half day trips are $350 and full days are $600, drop us a line and we'll put you together.
In addition to the hickory shad, a few white shad are showing up on the Neuse and Roanoke Rivers. We have shad trips available in both locations for these prices.
From April 18-May 15 striped bass trips are available on the Roanoke River. Long half days (5-6 hours) are $500 including bait. Full days (8-10 hours) are $700 including bait. Dicsounts available for fly fishing only trips. Space is limited and advance booking is recommended.
Double header pups. These guys are going to really start growing fast when the water warms up a little, putting on an inch a month through the summer. In addition to pups, Gary is reporting decent catches of specks. It's good to know that they didn't all get hit by the freeze.
Capt. Dave Stewart is also running these light tackle trips and I may be joining these guys to help out on the river over the next few weeks.

last Day Report
All day long we had sails swimming around the boat, but they never turned on. Bet we saw 100 fish today paddling along and sunbathing.We learned a lot about feeding finicky sailfish over the past three days.......
..... but the most important thing that we learned is not to let a tournament get in the way of having fun......and we had fun.
Ended up catching over 40 sails in 4 days, including the half day practice day, all hooked on our own.Good fishing.
There are a lot of fish around and fishing should be good for a while.
And a congratulations to the Game On, Gotcha and the Big Oh, you guys were battling it out all day, impressive work, the Game On had 57 sailfish and one marlin over 3 days. Gotcha and Big Oh, right on their heels with 55 sails and a marlin, Gotcha won "on time" catching their last fish first.
