Spring is Springing

Spring is sptringng at home in NC  and the blue marlin are still springing in Costa Rica.   I will be in NC next week for a quick visit to pick up some things for the Dragin Fly which is still going strong with good offshore fishing and a wave of big blue marlin passing through.   Up the rivers of eastern NC there are also a lot of fish passing through with excellent shad fishing and stripers right on their heels.  We have very few openings left for the Roanoke River this season.

Good fishing continues

The sailfish bite still remains a little slack but is showing signs of improvement.  Ahead of the sails we are also getting another wave of marlin with daily shots at blues and a few striped marlin in the mix.   Tuna fishing continues to be excellent with daily dorado.   All in all, the boys are scrapping up some good trips. 

Up in NC the shad fishing is really, really good with excellent reports of stripers on the Neuse and lower Roanoke.   Should be a great spring.

slack in the reports

I know, I know, you guys think that i'm down here in the sunshine just messing around, running from crocs and playing with snook.   I did play with the snook yesterday with the pink panga, but no love.   We have been extremely busy this season with several groups coming and going each day.  Offshore fishing has been decent, but not red hot, catching 4-8 sails and a dorado or two each day.   About every other day we release a blue marlin but the daily multiple marlin shots we were getting in January have faded. 

The tournament last week sucked for us, but we have one more chance at success witht the last leg of the Triple Crown next week. 

We just helped out with the deployment of another FAD and repaired a handful of others, so we are geared up and ready for the seamount season that starts in a few weeks.   We are now taking reservations for 2019 in Costa Rica.

Fishing in NC is really good, if you like fishing for bait, shad that is.   Good fishing and fast action which ain't bad if you have had the cases of cabin fever or the flu that I understand has been rampant. 
We are very busy booking for the Down East Guides for the NC Roanoke River, Cobia and giant red drum season.   Many of our guides are already 90% booked, so call or e mail us asap to get on the calendar this year.
