Offshore:    King Mackerel bite is picking up in the 20-30 mile mark. Water temps have been slowly on the rise and the water has been clearing up after Hurricane Florence passed.

We are also running 2 skirt rigs on flat lines on the edge of the prop wash 50ft back. The King Mackerel bite has been best in the 85-120ft of water. There has been a lot of bait in this water depth the last 7 days. We are also Pulling white/sliver Drone spoons on #6 or #8 planners with 50 ft 100 lbs floro/mono leaders. 

Gulfstream:   The Wahoo and Tuna bite good!! We are running 50-55 miles off of Wrightsville Beach to 18-22 fathoms to catch wahoo and blackfin with Ballyhoo rigged on Iilanders and Sea Witch’s on the outriggers will put fish in the boat. We are trolling small baits while mahi fishing.   WAHOO BITE IS GREAT NOW AND GETTING BETTER. We are using Pink/white Black/purple Ilanders rigged with large ballyhoo are producing nice fish. Must Wahoo have  been caught on #3 planner early in  the morning and #8 planner  the afternoon. The Black Tuna bite has been steady in 20 – 30 fathoms. Pulling small skirt rigs. Like Fathom half pints or Sea Vixens. The best colors have been pink/white, blue/white on outriggers has been working best. These lures should be set in the choppy water 100 ft – 200 ft back.
