CAPTAIN KARL HELMKAMP

Back to the meat for a minute!

We had a few days to get back to it between the tournament and the weather and these guys are all about dinner… Thank you so much!!  It is always so fun to have you guys back!!!  We’ve been working on prepping for the next season (moving on to feathers shortly…) during this nasty weather but should back on the water once it clears and will fish until September 19th… give us call if you want to get out there before its done!

The Billfish have arrived!

The last 10 days have been wide open with the Tournament (What an awesome good time!!!! A HUGE thank you to our team – Glenn, Wes, Davis – you guys are fantastic and so much fun – way to go!!!) and our charters – great weather and great fishing!!  A special congratulations to Connor on his first Sailfish (Go kiddo!!) and of course no pictures – but awesome work to Joe for the 6 1/2 hour fight with the Blue Marlin of a lifetime – estimates are over 800 pounds – she ate a 60 pound yellowfin tuna like it was a grape and pulled the boys almost 13 miles east before she decided she was done with us and snapped the line!! What an experience and wow what a tale!!  Needless to say – The billfish are here – Blue Marlin, White Marlin, Sails oh my!  We have openings but they are filling up… give us a call if you want to get out there before these amazing creatures move on for the winter!  Our nearshore trips are happening as well – Spanish and bluefish and tons of bottom fish – lots of fun and yummy too!  Let’s go fishing!!

Tournament Time!!

It’s that time of year!!  The tournaments are in full swing and this week is the biggie at Pirates’ Cove… Good luck to all our Lady Anglers fishing the Alice Kelly Memorial Tournament today (Sunday… Go Fistful Girls!!) and another Good Luck to everyone in the Billfish Tournament!! (Go Team Fistful!!)  The marina will be a flurry of activity all week – fishing starts on Tuesday and will continue through Friday.  This is a PUBLIC EVENT and EVERYONE IS WELCOME! Come down to the docks and see the boats… join in the fun and get lost in all the energy that fishing creates!  Tournament info and the schedule of events can be found at www.pcbgt.com… swing by and see us in slip 29!

Fishing continues to be fantastic!

As we move into August the fishing continues to be crazy good… tons of variety on our Nearshore Days and the Tuna have stuck around all summer for our Offshore trips!! (That NEVER happens!!! yay!).  The billfish are starting to show as we move into August and their time to shine is coming fast!  We are fishing until September 19th this year so give us a hollar if you want to get on the books… we have some spots left but they are filling.  Thank you so much to all our groups and a special shout out to our youth anglers – you guys are the future!

AWESOME JULY!!

I am not sure where to start… the last half of July has provided an amazing variety of crazy fun fishing with so many great groups!!  We appreciate everyone so much and also appreciate the fantastic fishing that our area has to offer during these summer months… we are so thankful to be able to call the Outer Banks home.  Our trips have predominately been Nearshore the last few weeks and the species all across the board – Kingfish, Triggers, Tiles, Spanish mackerel (we had 2 6 pound plus citation Spanish in 1 week!! check out the pic below…), Dolphin (Mahi Mahi), Albecore, Amberjack, Cobia, Red Drum, and more.  This time of year you never know what you will see out there and everyday can be different – so much fun!!  August is booking up quickly so please give us a call if you want to go… Time to go fishing!!!

   

July Fishing!

The last week has been full with half and 3/4 day trips – So much fun for everybody!!  The Red Drum have shown up to provide tons of Catch and Release action, the Spanish and King Mackerel fishing has been awesome, the Amberjacks gave one of our regular crews a great workout (no more gym before fishing next time Keith!!) and we’ve even seen a few dolphin on the short trips!  We got to take several fantastic youth anglers and had a blast with all our groups – thank you so much!!  One quick peek at some green and yellow starting to come together for fall… the next season will be here before we know it but until then it’s time to get on the water and catch em up!  Thanks again everybody!!

 

      

Happy 4th of July!!

It’s hard to believe we are already moving into July… so far the summer has been fantastic and the fishing incredible!  Tuna, Dolphin, King Mackerel, Spanish Mackerel, Bluefish, Sea Bass and more… Thank you so much to all of our groups and a huge bucket of appreciation to Jim, Tom, Kelly, Dave, and all the crew getting us through an unexpected quick haul out – you guys are amazing and we would be lost without you… You have no idea how much we appreciate you! Thank you  🙂
