Hot NC White Marlin Bite

Jumping White Marlin

North Carolina – There has been a GREAT white marlin bite up and down the coast. Boats are getting anywhere from 5-15 shots a day. Most recently, we saw the Hunter out of Monteo, NC release 14 White Marlin. Typically this time a year starts a good Fall run. Last year we saw boats with 20+ fish at the peak of the season. Here are the numbers on a few other boats over the last couple days.

Hog Wild – 8 White Marlin

Sea Toy – 8 White Marlin

Qualifier – 7 White Marlin

Right Hook – 7 White Marlin

Obsession – 6 White Marlin

Bi-Op-Sea – 5 White Marlin

    Not sure how boats hooking whities out of Oregon Inlet constitutes “up and down the coast”, but that’s your report…..OI boats are the only ones who routinely catch any whites or yellowfin of significant numbers, so that’s really not big news around the NC ports!!
