Got our buddy @dctallpaul out for his birthday for the second year in a row and cleaned up on the Mahi again along with a few kings and way to many Almaco jacks. Happy Birthday ๐ŸŽ‰
When everything comes together like you wanted it to.
Little sushi sickle blackfins have been chewing since the lockdown.
Nice haul yesterday evening. Didn’t have time to get a transom pic because of curfew. ๐Ÿ™„
Pretty slow today but still scored some blackfin tuna, a few Bonita and  a nice wahoo for our tag along crews today with @thewanderingbagelrincon
The fish won today. Broke off a Blue Marlin right out the gate and missed two other gaffers like this one and got a few blackfin. Not the best day but at least we got one stud with @thewanderingbagelrincon and @intoslipstream. #scalesgear #scalescrew @scales_gear
Put some more meat on the market today with @thewanderingbagelrincon and @mrdockbox #scalescrew #scalesgear @scales_gear
How about those colors!? Few more solid ones today with @dctallpaul and @holafishing. #scalescrew @scales_gear
If you chum... they will come. Full belly on this tuna.
Best seat on the boat. ๐Ÿ“ธ @dctallpaul
Put a couple more nice ones in the boat today with @dctallpaul and @holafishing
Was able to get out of the house for a change with my buddies @dctallpaul and @holafishing who obtain a commercial license and we ended up with a nice yellowfin in the boat. Trying them again tomorrow. ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿฝ
Happy Birthday to this fine specimen of a woman. To bad we can’t leave the house to celebrate ๐ŸŽ‰ Oh well, guess we get to cuddle with the doggies on the couch instead... Love you and happy birthday babe! ๐Ÿ˜˜
Beautiful morning on the south side today with slick calm conditions. Found a couple of smoker kings along with a few blackfin tuna and around 15-20 cudas. Thanks again guys!
Tuna Tuesday!  Nice Blackfin from the other day. @scales_gear
Nice 150lb baby blue with a clean release back.
Some awesome folks joined us for a half day today. Congrats to Willie on his first Blue Marlin! What a show this beautiful fish put on from us. I’ll post some footage soon as I receive it. Thanks again guys!
Weehoo Wednesday! From our Valentine’s Day trip with @lauren4beach @wavesnc and @j.brindley #scalesgear @scales_gear
Cool pic by @lord_baltimoredarnell of me setting the long rigger back out while the inside long is coming down from a bite.
Nice smoker today. @scales_gear
Nice day with some of our OBX people.
Had the Coast Guard boys out today and the Kings fish were chewing.
Mutton Monday! @scales_gear #scalesgear #scalescrew
Beautiful afternoon with some nice folks. Hit the edge for a little and got a couple solid Kings and a handful of cudas and then tried the outside looking for a Marlin or a gaffer and got one marlin bite that didn’t stick. Almost! Thanks again guys!
Found a few thick ones this evening.
Nice mixed bag for our Minnesota group today.
Flag tail Friday!
Finally something worthy to post. Ha. 3 weeks of wind and slow fishing put a damper on us. Made it out today looking for the Venezuelan Mahi with no luck and ended up with a couple nice White Marlin.
Fun morning with a nice group from Montana. Thanks again guys!
Couple of diamonds in the rough for the guys today.
A little slow today but found a few nice ones. Thanks @thewanderingbagelrincon for the business. If you are in Rincon check out their shop. Fresh bagels topped with fresh fish!
Gotta love some afternoon offshore fishing. @scales_gear #surfandslay #afternoondelight
Wahoo Wednesday! Over the rail and into the pail. Got em! @scales_gear #surfandslay
These things never get old to look at. Pretty work Adam!
Slow but successful afternoon for our USCG friends that did that awesome fly by yesterday. Thanks again guys! Let’s hit em again soon.
Fun Fact for my mainland people: The Spanish word for Mahi/dolphin is “Dorado” which means Golden. @scales_gear #surfandslay
Awesome group today. Had lots of unwanted action from the Cuban Wahoo and some nice Mahi. Thanks again guys.
Wahoo Wednesday! Not to much longer till the next full moon โณ @scales_gear  #scalesgear #surfandslay #wahoowednesday
Nice afternoon trip with “Amitey print shop” crew. These are the guys that printed my shirts. Ha. Anyway, Went 1 for 3 with the sails and saw a few nice Mahi around. Thanks again guys!
Sailfish Saturday!
A diamond in the rough. Fishing has been a little slow besides the large numbers of Barracuda infesting the edge.
Mahi Monday bitches!!!
Just wanted thank Juan at @scales_gear for hooking us up with a package of their PR line and putting us on the team! Check out their top notch clothing when you get a chance. #scalesclothing
Beautiful day on the water. Double fisting beers and Mahi right out the gate this morning. Super fun group from Jersey keeping the party going and us entertained. ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿป ๐ŸŽฃ
Slow start yesterday but it finally came together the last hour with the help of a little wind and some clouds.
Tuna Tuesday! If anyone wants to know one of the best lures to use in PR or anywhere for that matter, it’s in this guys mouth. Fished on a number 8 planer, it is and will be the deadliest pole in the spread.  ๐Ÿ”ช ๐Ÿ”ช๐Ÿ”ช๐Ÿ˜ฑ
Just getting back from a vacation๐Ÿ– and ready to get back on the bite. Who’s hungry for some fresh fish!? ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿผ‍โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿผ‍โ™€๏ธ Give us a call and book a trip!
Solid and all lit up is how we like em! Pretty work Bubba!
Hit it again this evening with our boy Bubba and the moon turned the bite on like a light switch. A little smaller class of tuna than yesterday and 1 out of 2 super nice Wahoo.
Went looking for Wahoo this afternoon and ended up in down town tuna town.
Successful afternoon trip. Got 2 out of 5 on the hoo bites. Get out there if you can this moon!
Wahoo Wednesday let us have a few nice ones yesterday. #wahoowednesday @intoslipstream @scales_gear
It’s always a special treat to get some of these for the table. Rainbow  Runner
Mahi monday! Zoom in and check out how deep into the reel backing he is in the chair. Stretched way out!
A awesome group of guys from FEMA joined us today. Had lots of action on the edge and a drooling 45 minute fight with a monster Mahi that left our stomachs in knots when he broke us off at the boat. But at least they have a good story about the one that got away. We’ll get em next time! Thanks again fellas!
Cool shot from the other morning taken by one of our guests.
1 outta 3 on hoos and plenty of cudas for our half day today.
Our girl @mrs_kuzmovich getting her first Rainbow Runners the other day. #doublerainbow๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒˆ
Fun inshore half day with this group from Charleston, South Carolina. Thanks for joining us and hope to see y’all again! And thanks @fathomfishingcharters
To whom it may concern. The Marlin populations are clearly in good condition. Marlin Tournaments working with NOAA marine fisheries show a steady increase of the amount of fish caught every year. So much that there is NOT even a bag limit in place for them anymore. I will never deny any charter guest their right to keep a perfectly legal fish on my boat.... especially one on their bucket list! ๐ŸŽค โฌ‡๏ธ ๐Ÿ’ฅ โœŒ๐Ÿผ
Stud White Marlin today. Can’t wait to get em in the smoker. ๐Ÿคค
Awesome half day today. Hit the edge and put some meat in the box and then heading off to try to find some Mahi. We only saw a few but ended up hooking a stud White Marlin that made the day. Congrats to Mike and Dana on your first bill fish and thanks again for joining us..
Good ole case of the Mahi Mondays. Happy Birthday ๐Ÿฅณ @dctallpaul. Super fun day of drinking and catching for our buddy’s Bday.
Slow day on the edge yesterday. Had a hour left to bottom fish and get some more fish in the cooler but ended up getting blown out by a storm and having to come in early. Sorry guys. Lets try it again sometime. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ @fathomfishingcharters
So this happened @mermy_megan  ๐Ÿ’™ Thank you @annadolldesigns for creating such a beautiful ring! It couldn’t be more perfect!!! #engaged #engagedtomybestfriend #engagedtonotgetmarried #foreverengaged
Scrappy day today. Lost a few Wahoo and pounded the scattered grass forever it seemed looking for any kind of structure. Was finally able to find a good handful of small Mahi around which made the day for our guests. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ @fathomfishingcharters
