Hey Pickle !




How much did the Big Eyes weigh that came in on your boat the other day? They look to be good size.

Stolat Fishing Charters
Yesterday at 11:29 AM ·
A pair of Bigeye's yesterday, weighing 225 & 104lbs, a couple Yellowfin, Mahi and some Albacore. What a Beautiful day to be on the water!! #stolatfishing #stolatfishingcharters #obxmarina


RE: Hey Pickle !




225#s, Man that's a whole lot of fish!!!


RE: Hey Pickle !




As stated the big one was 225. Quite a few being caught but most are a bit over 100. Bigeyes are not an everyday occurrence. You basically have to land on them. Quite exciting. Very good Offshore now. Tuna and Gaffer Dolphin . Waiting for the Billfish, only a few Blues have been caught. Marlin season (Whites) is August/early September
if you are chartering in August, the Captsin should give you the option of Marlin or Meat. Too many boats will target the glamour fish. Tilefish excellent and if you go with the right boat and ask for them Black Sea Bass are plentiful on selected spots. We're even catching some big Southern Hake (yummy) and a few Snowy Grouper (Regs = 1 per boat per trip Ugh). Let's go fishing!


RE: Hey Pickle !




Pickle, do you still captain the boat sometimes?

John


RE: Hey Pickle !




Only occasionally, especially if we have long time regulars on board. My Son, Paul runs most trips, he's no kid (48 ) and has 28 years OBX experience. Sometimes you get two Captains for the price of one (ha ha). I like to talk, he's the serious fisherman. My specialty is Wrecks. My career started in Sheepshead Bay Brooklyn NY in 1958. I guess you can call me VP in charge of Entertainment. A lot of water has gone under my boats.


RE: Hey Pickle !




That's awesome. If I ever charter a boat, it'll be the Stolat and I'll be requesting that you join us. Thank you for all the knowledge you post on OBC. Glad to hear that fishing is good right now.

RE: Hey Pickle !




Thank you John for your kind words. And a big thank you goes out to all the OBX Connection members who have fished with us and have accepted some of my "Lengthy Answers" to your questions. The Outer Banks is a great place and fishing opportunities are extensive.
