The boats have not fished offshore in roughly 5 days due to the current weather conditions making offshore fishing unpleasant with high seas. We are hoping the weather will start to break over the weekend and our fleet can get back to the deep water. The last time the boats returned from offshore we were seeing multiple flags flying for both White and Blue Marlin, as well as Sailfish flags and the occasional Spearfish. We were seeing nice hauls of Mahi brought to the docks, as well as several Tuna, and the occasional Wahoo.

Weather Just Wont Cooperate, Making For Rough Fishing Conditions
Sadly with the high winds none of are boats have been able to do any trolling along Virginia Beach’s coast. We have recieved some reports of some really nice Spot biting, as well as a few Bluefish and Spanish Mackerel. The Bluefish and Spanish have been predominantly caught on the troll with a spoon, as for the Spot they are hitting on live bloodworms on a bottom rig.
The Rudee Inlet bite remains solid with a really nice showing of Spot biting on live bloodworms. There are also still some Croaker and Flounder inside the inlet. The Croaker have been biting on bloodworms, fishbites, and squid. The Flounders have been eating live minnows as well as Gulps on a jig head.
