It looks like a weather window is staying open for the weekend, and for once work has allowed us to take advantage of the weather. Unfortunately the recent weather has left the Rutgers SST site with little useful data. Hopefully today's shots will have some better data. I suspect we will be somewhere between the Norfolk Canyon and the Cigar. Does anyone have any intel on temps, chlorophyll, catch reports, etc they'd be willing to share? Any info is greatly appreciated!

I've been watching this one too, with Sunday looking marginally better than Saturday. Conditions are borderline for us in a 27' cc. Hopefully some of the charters will fish today and we can get an idea of where the fish area. Planning to launch anywhere between Rudee and hatteras.

Thanks for the info. Are you overnighting as well? Our current plan is midmorning Saturday to early afternoon Sunday. Hopefully we can find something out there.

Probably gonna head to the Baltimore tomorrow night for a overnighter. Fished the Washington last wed into Thursday when attempting to head to the Norfolk but had a stiff head wind. Heard a few bigger boats made it there but the fishing was slow. We had several hook ups that we fought for a hour plus but pulled the hooks or broke them off. We also had a good run from what we think was a big eye on the night troll on a joe chute that came loose. Had some action but never boated any. Anyone heading to the Baltimore?

How did yall do? We bagged it when NOAA started saying 2-4 and 10-15 knots. Of course I watched the dang buoy all day yesterday and it never went over 2.5 And barely went over 10 knots.

We did an all day trip to the Washington on Saturday. Picked up 15 nice mahi off the balls, mostly on the troll. Chunked in Big Eye hole for 2 1/2 hours without a touch. Beautiful day with light winds. Didn't see a boat all day, except a commercial trawler working the east wall.

Fished from the 41370 to the 41250 line from 30 fathoms to 250 fathoms with water from 68 to 71. Troll bite was slow for us with only 1 wahoo and a handful of mahi. Some boats had up to 6 wahoo. Halloween night was a pleasant night but not much action except for one shark cutoff. Got a couple of grouper and some trigger fish for the box. I think the fat lady has sung for the season unless we fish out of OI or HI.

Out there too on Sunday. Fished from the 200 to the 460, 30 to 100 fathoms. One big false albacore and one yellowfin. Had a mystery knockdown, think it may have been a billfish.

We had similar results - a couple mahi and lost a wahoo on the troll. We put a hand full of blueline (including 17 and 20 pounders) and a grouper (30 pounds) in the box. The night bite was non-existent for us even though the longliners thought we were in the right spot. We fished 68-71 degree water, no temp breaks and some scattered weed.
