Well it has been a VERY busy Summer, with lots of Travel and lots of Tournaments so far.We just got back from Charleston, SC where we fished the Megadock Tournament as well as a few Customer Days,although we did not do too well in the Tournament, we did catch a few Sailfish as well as some Dolphin and even a nice Gag Grouper. In June, the ‘Stream Weaver’ Team managed to pull off a win in the 2008 Cape Fear Blue Marlin Tournament! We were fortunate enough to catch the First Blue Marlin of the Tournament and our 400 pts. held up to the end. Above is a picture of the 200-250lb Blue right before we let him go. As of the last update we were ranked 8th in the North Carolina Governors Cup Billfishing Series with 2 Tourneys to go Ducks Unlimited and Pirates Cove. I will keep you posted. The Boat is Scheduled to be back home late August and will be available to fish out of Wrightsville Beach this Fall. Last year was a really good year for Fall Wahoo and Sailfish all the way into the New Year.

Inshore fishing has also been productive, with a host of species to target. On a trip yesterday, we jumped off a nice Ladyfish on artificial and had a few fly shots as well.The Redfish seem to be on the move following the Finger Mullet and some large schools have been found with big upper-slot and over-slot fish eating Topwater plugs readily. Flounder are fairly consistent on bait and there are some nice Blues around. Speckled Trout fishing has remained good all year and I am hoping for another awesome late summer Topwater bite like we had last year. The Trout Pic is of a 5.5lber that ate a Topwater Plug in May, and is one of my biggest yet! Tarpon have been seen and caught around Bald Head Island and we are currently booking for the pre-fall run.
We are available for charter, both Inshore and Offshore, starting in late August. With limited availability before then.
Thanks for reading, hope to see you soon!
