It was great to see Nick and the guys out fishing. Everyone had a wonderful time and enjoyed the short break from the office. They are going home with Tuna, Mahi-Mahi and Shrimp (no, we did not get the shrimp but our neighbor did). Capt. Dave's son and daughter-in-law were on the Bonner Bridge when Dave was coming in, they took some wonderful photos of the boat. Thank you Brandon and Lillie.

A great day out there after the Hurricanes had moved off..........Plenty of Mahi-Mahi and some Tuna to take home!!!
We untied the High Return and took her back to Oregon Inlet Fishing Center after Hurricane Maria had moved off more. Even the Ducks came to say good bye..... Oregon Inlet Fishing Center looks very bare without very few boats in their slips, most of the boats returned today.
Finally the two back to back Hurricanes have moved off. Hurricane Jose just sat offshore for days and Maria has caused a lot of flooding and high surf. Capt. Dave moved the High Return to Pirate's Cove Marina for safe keeping, she will probably go back to the Fishing Center tomorrow. We are hoping to get out on Saturday as long as all the cards line up........... These photos were taken yesterday when I went and checked on her at the Cove. FALL Fishing has begun and after all churning up that the ocean has had - it will be a Fabulous Fall Fishing Season!!!!
This was the last day that we got to go out before the Hurricane Swells were just too much. The swell from Jose was just offshore and Hurricane Maria is very shortly behind it. The fish were biting and getting their fill before the water gets churned up.
A great day fishing just before Hurricane Jose gets close enough to stop the fleet from getting out. All the Tuna were biting!!!
Jerry had a group set up and ready to go fishing for two days but Hurricane Irma and Jose put a little kink in things. We got Jerry out for the first day, he had a fabulous time catching all the Black-Fin Tuna, Yellow-Fin Tuna and Mahi-Mahi. There will be plenty of fresh fish and stories to take back home.
What a wonderful start to the Fall Fishing Season -- a Mixed Bag to go home!!!! Look at all that Fish!!!
