3 Day TNT 8/31-9/3 Viking FiveStar Fishing

We had another excellent trip offshore over Labor Day weekend! We got our limit of Yellow fin from 30-80lbs a decent mess of Golden and grey tiles with some pollock, hake and barrel fish mixed in, a handful of mahi and a beauty sword that weighed in at 220lbs! Day one we managed 7 nice yellows on the troll and didn’t do any bottom fishing due to the unfavorable conditions. That night we picked a few yellows early then fought the sword for a good while and as soon as he was on the deck the yellows attacked! From 3am thru sun up we had non stop action on the bait and jigs with fish jumping all around the boat after first light. Mid morning we got back on troll and picked a couple small yellows that we released and then we put the afternoon in bottom fishing. We still didn’t have idea conditions but we managed a nice catch. At sundown the guys were worn out and agreed to go in early rather then fish the second night to play catch and release. Over all another great trip with a good group of guys. Congrats to our regular customer Bruce Wahl who did a hell of a job on the rod with the sword!
With hurricane Dorian coming our way later this week we will not be getting back offshore until the beginning of next week. This break will give us some time for our regular maintenance and a trip to Trophy Fishing Tackle -www.trophytackle.com / www.tunafishtackle.com to load up on chunking tackle!
We have a couple openings on some trips in the end of the month but they are filling up quick! We also have our fall bottom fishing trips starting in October and the weekend trips are filling up fast!! Give us a call at the office for all bookings before it’s too late!

We also have the new T-shirt’s in at the office but only in limited numbers and they are going quick!

Sunset Tuna

Game plan was to head out later in the day and spend night chunking then morning jig for bluefin. Few miles short of grounds we see tuna chicks, whales and rays. Dropped jigs down and nothing. Were just about to pull lines in and head to the grounds when I hear screams of fish on from my son in the cockpit – 10 min later a fat 60 LB fish is on the deck. We drop the jigs down again and this time a double hookup. I get my 60 LB fish in and my son is saying his fish is giant. 20 minutes later we gaff his 60 inch 150 plus LB fish and can barely can lift it over the sides. Amazing fish! Very proud of him for landing that fish by himself. Limited out with 2 under’s and one over. Wanted to release my fish but the fish are just inhaling the jigs deep and was impossible to do so. Headed in very early and back at the dock at 10 pm. Sunset bite! .

Just an amazing trip and the fish are gorging on sand eels now. Sardine type jigs worked very well and we got them in the sane area as our last trip. Tons of life out there. Look for the tuba chicks and rays and you will connect.A Trip my son will never forget I’m sure.​

Captree Pride Sea Bass + Fluke

Sorry for the late report. I had a great morning trip on the Captree Pride Friday. Capt. Ken structures the trips based on weather and tides. We caught all the sea bass and porgies you could want, with lots of double headers and then we closed out with two fluke drifts. I have to admit I was pretty surprised when this fluke hit my 3 oz Palmer white glow jig + Gulp.
The new boat is top notch.
