  Well the hurricane gave Wachapreague a betting on Sept. 1st with winds to 70 MPH and the tide was 6 feet above normal I was lucky with no damage but some curtains blown out but some other people were not a lucky there were several boats and building damage from the storm
   But the rough weather seem to help the Tuna fishing on Sunday after the storm we had the best Tuna bite in a month and it stayed right good through this weekend and the Offshore fishing should only get better for the rest of the year.
   Sea Bass have showed up at the wrecks several boats fished for them this past weekend and caught a lot of fish with most being small but there were some nice fish there too.
   Flounder Fishing Inshore has slowed the past couple weeks But the Flounder fishing at the Wrecks is still real good

 So if you would like to go fishing give me a call at 540-297-2307

  Tuna fishing has been hit and miss with some days catching a few but no real big catches but the Dolphin fishing has been right good, with the water temp up to 85* and if you can find something floating most of the time there is Dolphin under it

 Flounder Fishing Inshore has stayed steady the past couple weeks But the Flounder fishing at the Wrecks is still real good and it wont be long before the Sea bass move back in

 So if you would like to go fishing give me a call at 540-297-2307

  Well the grass moved out to the Canyons last week and made it tough on the boats in the Eastern Shore Marlin Club Tournament. In the 3 day tournament there was only 4 Marlin caught 2 White and 2 Blue ones.
  Tuna fishing was fair with most boats catching a couple but no real big catches but the Dolphin fishing has been great at times, with the water temp at 85* and if you can find something floating most of the time there is Dolphin under it

  We had an overnight trip this past weekend that turned out great. We had 5 nice Tuna with the biggest being 86 pounds  and a limit of Dolphin

 Flounder Fishing Inshore has stayed steady the past couple weeks But the Flounder fishing at the Wrecks is great we went last Monday part of a day with the family and had  13 Big Flounder with 7 of them over 4 pounds

 So if you would like to go fishing give me a call at 540-297-2307

  Well the past couple of weeks has not been that great Offshore fishing first bad weather then the grass moved in and not in a weed line but everywhere you spend the entire day winding in Ballyhoos removing grass off its nose. The Tuna bite has slowed but the Dolphin bite is getting hotter.
 Flounder Fishing Inshore has been good these past couple weeks with boats catching 50 to 60 fish with 15 to 20 keepers
The Flounder fishing at the Wrecks has turned on and if you can find the right Wreck holding them you will come in with a nice mess of Big Flounder

  Wachapreague Virginia was a busy town Friday and Saturday with everybody trying to catch a few Flounder and alot of them had good luck. We fished a day on Saturday and came in early when it started to rain and still had 12 real nice Flounder with one being almost 6 pounds. We tried to fish Sunday but Mother Nature was not nice to us, it was cold and rainy we fished about 10 minutes and came in, maybe next week the weather will be better.
It won't be long before the Sea Bass are here, another week or two of warm weather and we will be at the wrecks catching them.

 The Flounder Tournaments starts in 2 weeks and it looks to be a good one this year, there should be some nice Flounder caught in Wachapreague that week.

Well Spring has sprung I went down this weekend and done my Spring maintenance on Nita Dream. It was a cold rainy weekend but we got her ready for a summer of fishing. And while I was working on the boat there were several people out Flounder fishing (Some Brave Soles) it was nasty all weekend but they caught fish most people I talked to had a nice mess of fish.  So this year is looking good with the Flounder being caught this early. So I hope to do some fishing next weekend.

If you would like to do some Flounder or Sea Bass fishing this spring give me a call to set a date before the best days are gone.
