There is a posting above that references one caught at AR315 and that is within easy sight of land in 45 to 50 feet of water.

There's no way he knows yet on the second one. It isn't like the made for drama TV show where they supposedly tell them on the dock. You find our a week or two later after it has sold overseas.

Do you by chance know what the realistic prices are? I know they are exaggerated on tv and have wondered what they really are.

Default Blufin Tuna

$12.00-$16.00 pound. They grade the fish usually after they take possession. The market fluctuates based on grade and demand. You get paid when they sell the fish. We sold a few back in the late 90's. I have just been playing around with them lately. They caught a Jumbo today. Cored out at 626 lbs. That fish was close to 900 lbs when it was swimming.

Not that I'm there, but haven't yet seen/heard any from Hatt/OI area yet.

Is that the case, or just not being highlighted like MHC?

What is the water temp in Onslow bay currently?

Yes...cut off one gill plate and pull the guts out from there, then pack the cavity with ice. You want to cool the core down as fast as you can. While the process is different than that used by what are normally considered warm-blooded animals like mammals, they do maintain a body temperature higher than the surrounding water.


Price just depends. The Morehead fish usually bring better prices than OI fish for whatever reason. They've dropped some, but back in the mid to late 2000's the highest I knew of was like $22.50/pound. I think like SOBX said they have been getting $12-16 lately.

Default Blue Fins Caught this Week

I have heard that about five to six fish were caught this week. Does this sound about right or more than that this week.?

Do you need a special license to fish for them? Can anyone sell one? Thats a lot of meat for personal use. Thinkin about trying.

Rec fishing: HMS Angling permit and state fishing license. Allowed one 73 inches or over per year, one between 27 and 73 per day.

To sell: commercial fishing license and associated required gear and additional requirements (p-number, etc) HMS General permit, fish has to be 73 inches or bigger

Yeah that's more like it. You may hear of 1 or 2 going for $16 but that's rare. They are real happy if they get $10.

Bluefin have been around Hatteras since at least early December. I saw them twice last month, including a commercial sized one not 5 feet from the stern on December 14 while we were King fishing. The first one was right outside of the inlet, and the other was about 10 miles offshore. One of the charter boats caught a rec sized one (150#) last week. They are here, just not the big school we typically see in February-March time frame.

The reason you do not hear much from Hatteras is because all of the boats are too busy catching King Mackerel to fool with hunting giants. Speaking of which, there were some nice sized ones offloaded yesterday by the commercial boat a few slips down from me.

However, the big school of smaller sized Bluefin (average 200-300#ers) were offshore of Maryland last week. VB area should be seeing them any day now., especially if it gets colder again soon.

Current temp is 66.4 degrees at Station 41064. I added Current Buoy Conditions to the Morehead City Fishing page. It is below the weather on the right side, and is updated every 1 hour.

Default Bluefin $$$

Sorry for the silence on the Bluefin front. Duck Hunting in full swing here in the SOBX area so I have been busy.

Blufins have been scattered but some are still being caught out of Beaufort inlet.. I saw a friend last night and he said they got $10.50 a pound for one they caught on Friday. They got $15.00 a pound for the ones the sold in December. As always the condition of the fish and the grade are what brings the price.

Ocean isle had one today at the docks! In 30ft of water off Carolina beach inside the sea buoy. Amazing they are coming down this way so close to shore. Ocean crest should be getting one any day now! Tomorrow looks like a great day to fish... but my sounder decided to take a shit and no way I'm heading out of Lockwood with no depth reading
