    Default Gulf Stream Trip 5-10-11



    Finally! The marine forecast was decent for a day that I could manage to fit into my schedule for some offshore fishing. I headed out at 4am this morning on my buddy Taylor's boat with Scott and Doug. We left out of New River Inlet and headed in the direction of the Swansboro Hole near the Gulf Stream.

    About 6 or 7 miles short of there we stopped and deployed some cow bells (high speed Wahoo Lures) and then continued on at a speed between 15 & 20 knots. We got one quick knockdown but it came unbuttoned before we could even pick up the rod, that was a little after 7am. No more hits for about 15 minutes.

    Then we ran across a nice rip caused by 72 degree water on one side and 70 degrees on the other. The rip was popping and was about 50 yards across and full of WEEDS! We pulled in the high speed lures and deployed a nice spread of ballyhoo on Witches and JAGS. Soon it was GAME ON! We worked that weedline for several hours and boated 9 mahi including a bull that I caught that weighed over 25 pounds. We also caught a 15 pound king and two barracudas.



    Then the bite died. We tried some other places with no luck. Finally we headed home with plenty of fish and smiles! Great day on the water fishing with friends!
