Offshore make up trips next weekend mar31, apr1 hatteras
I have been getting a lot of calls lately from people looking to do weekend make up trips, but all weekends I have had the boat booked pretty solid. Next weekend I am going to do make up trips on both saturday march 31, and sunday april 1. Boat will leave at 630am from Odens Dock Marina in Hatteras and return around 5pm. These trips will be combination trips where we will do some trolling with ballyhoos and we will also be stopping to do some jigging.
Over the last couple weeks we have seen good fishing on the troll for yellowfins and bluefins (when conditions are right), there have been some mahi overboard, and there have been wahoos and a very good showing of blackfins inshore. There has even been a blue marlin or two hooked this spring already. Jigging has been productive for several species of tuna and we are seeing good catches of blackfins on the jig. There has also been the usual assortment of other species on the jig like amberjacks and big sharks. Also, if theres enough interest we can stop on the way inshore and release some big red drums on light tackle. The fishing is really good in Hatteras right now and has been for a couple of weeks.
The boat costs $1350 per day and with a full crew of 6 people, the cost per person for these trips will be $225 each plus mates tip. Spots are first come, first serve and I will take the first ones to confirm their reservations. To reserve a spot you can call me at 757-749-6008. For more information or trip reports from the past couple weeks you can check my sites at www.matadorcharters.com or www.charterfishinghatteras.com. Thanks and hopefully we will see you soon. Thanks, Jake Hiles
We are in the book and looking forward to next Saturday!
