Warm water still offshore of break
<p>Started fishing at the 410 line and went out to 1000 feet to find warm water. Water was 78 degrees and looked really good but again way out so nothing to really fish on. The current was ripping making it nearly impossible to troll to south so worked our way north. Finally found some fish around 10am. Boated two dolphin but then no more bites. At 11am the long rigger started screaming and a blue marlin walked the surface behind the boat. He really put on a show for the group. Worked him for a while but never got him all the way to the boat. The hooked pulled before we got him up beside the boat but that was fine with everyone. He was 150-200 lbs. Went in and did some jigging but not much, shark, and black sea bass. Water is getting better now just need for the fish to pile in here, hopefully by next weekend.

Bio: Captain Bill is a USCG licensed captain with 17 years of fishing experience in the Atlantic Beach/Morehead City, NC area. I retired last year after 30 years in the field of education. I was a teacher/football coach, athletic director, and the last 12 years a high school principal. I am now living my dream of charter fishing full time. I believe and encourage customer participation on the charter. With our charter you get to actually fish not just "ride and reel" unless that is what you want to do. I enjoy sharing my fishing experience with others and will do whatever is necessary to make your trip the best fishing experience you've ever had. The boat is a 33' Grady White Express (2006) and the electronics and tackle are first class.
