Capt. Rod says that there are more on the way
Greg got another one today
Triple Grand Slam
46 blue marlin bites, landed 20. Not a great hook up ratio, but when blue marlin are coming into the spread in pairs and triples, it gets a little confusing.
6 for 8 striped marlin bites
3 for 6 sailfish.
and 1 big dorado.
Pics to follow.
For red drum and sailfish catches, I don't reveal more than a double digit day "XX".
You know how I feel about posting numbers, it can too often set unrealistic expectations. Catching a third of this catch is phenomenol.
The Dragin Fly has no openings for the next month, but this moon phases is available in August.
Serious inquiries from serious fishermen only. This is not a day trip. Max of 3 anglers.

For the last decade tarpon have been rare in the Pamlico Sound, so much so that I have not actively marketed or targeted the few fish only occasionally making a showing. Looks like this year is different. I have been receiving reports of a "good sign" of tarpon from all over the Neuse River and Pamlico Sound. Last week I poked my head into the river under less than ideal conditions and was surprised to see several groups of fish. Yesterday I had a chance to ride along with Capt. Greg Voliva and Brynn "Tom Cat" who always has a rabbit's foot in his pocket.
We would have never landed that fish if attention had not been paid to the details. Keeping hooks sharp, leaders fresh, knots strong and line unchaffed while shagging multiple sting ray hook ups is almost impossible to do with customers who don't know a thing or two about fishing.
I'll tell you like I told folks for over a decade of guiding tarpon trips every day for about 60 days in a row. "You are not going to catch a tarpon if you are not tarpon fishing."
If you want to catch a tarpon. I mean if you REALLY want to catch a tarpon, then you better be prepared to put your time in and plan on booking a full day TARPON trip. Bring plenty of water and we will bring plenty of bait. We will NOT have any "little rods" on the boat to go and catch something else on "plan B". Do not expect to get a bite, but expect best efforts and if you keep your eye out, you might even see a fish or two.
Sure, we can book you with a good guide who can "fish" for tarpon if conditions are right, then go looking for something else if it doesn't happen, but if you want a realistic shot at catching a NC tarpon, then you need to say you want a TARPON trip.......and ask Tom Cat to borrow that rabbit's foot.
