SUNDAY,10-30-05: As the old saying goes"what a difference a day can make", and that is so often the case in this sport of offshore fishing!!! This morning we had a 15 knot NW wind with the prediction of a dying out wind later that day. This gave us following sea to a "trough" to run in making for a fairly comfortable ride out to the tower area. Today we were fishing with Kenneth Gilley, Richard Brood, Mike Williams, Scotty Noah, Marjo Deweese, and Brad Weeks, all from the Thomasville,NC area. We were in pursuit of bottom fish today, but , I don't think Kenneth and Richard were expecting what they had coming up today. That's what makes offshore fishing so exciting, you never know what you are going to hook up with out there!!!! The picture in the center is Richard with his Thresher Shark,and the picture on the right is Kenneth with his Thresher Shark, these fish were HUGE, estimated in the 300 to 400 pound range. There were many big and powerful fish hooked today. We were having 50 pound test line being broken today like sewing thread. We even had one reel to get its gears stripped out. We caught American Reds and Grouper, although they were just an inch or two short from being legal size. We limited out on good size B-Liners (vermillion Snapper), we had black bass, amorings, grey snapper, pinkys,King Mackeral and SHARKS!!!!!!! All I can say is you should have been there, you don't know what you are missing if you don't fish for these saltwater fish!!! Just ask these guys!!! The Spots are finally starting to make a good showing, We went for some Friday evening with good luck. The trout and Red fish along with some black bass are beginning to congregate on the inshore reefs now. The kings are biting good in the offshore areas where you find the bait and water temps. are much warmer out there. We have had a BIG temperature drop on the beach water in just two days, this, along with all the gill nets on the beach, has made the pogys and kings real hard to catch. I wouldn't waste a lot of time looking for it, they are hitting frozen cigar minnows just fine offshore!!! The grouper have been biting well, but it won't be much longer untill they retreat to their winter holding grounds in 100+ water depths. In the gulfstream, and "stream fingers" you will find the wahoo willing to bite. On the inside, I have been told the Red fish are doing well also. Come on down and get in on the great fall fishing we have here on the southeast coast in October and November, I don't think you will be dissapointed. Be sure to dress warm though, it can be cold in the mornings!!! Check out Pic's on my site!!! Till next time, FISH ON!!! Capt. Butch Foster, Capt. Chris Foster,and "Private"Bodie, the fish dog, says HI.!!!! YEAH RIGHT CHARTERS, Southport,NC. (910)845-2004. www.yeahrightcharters.com
