This past weekend was extemely good fishing offshore.  Each Day the dolphin bite got a little better with a bigger size class fish. Friday, most of the boats caught 15-30 dolphins with most of them being 5-15lb.  Saturday was better with most boats catching 20-40 dolphins and the majority of them being gaffers and some of them in the 30lb range.  There were a few wahoo mixed in and I only heard of a couple yellowfins caught.  Most of the bite is going on right around the big rock too.  Ive posted some pictures of some good friends of mine's catch from Friday. They ended up with 25 dolphins and said they could have caught more if they had brought more bait. Now thats good fishing. Nice catch from Patrick Shore, Gray Canady, and Matthew Spivey!!

I was actually able to get out on the water Saturday.  Me and Casey headed out in the search of some shad early Saturday morning and after a little frustration finally found some nice bait balls right on the beach up at the cape.  We loaded the cooler up and then headed in, not before stopping and having a little fun with some false albacore on light tackle of course.  Found some of those about a mile off the rock jetty at the cape.  So........if you need shad. We got em!!$6.00/dozen
