Default Oregon Inlet Friday

Anyone else fishing out of OI tomorrow? I normally fish out of MHC and Southport, but this will be my first trip there on my buddy’s boat. He navigated the inlet today to lay down a track, and we are going offshore tomorrow. He is a novice offshore angler. Anyone have any intel or advice on which direction to head? Looking for tuna/dolphin/wahoo/sails. I know the water is all jacked up and I don’t have any good temp shots on Hilton’s. Should we focus on trolling structure or temp breaks as we find them? Does the point still hold tuna this time of year?

Fishing is awful. Go south and bottom fish or go Ne and troll 40-50 fathoms and find us some bills

Good luck, I'm waiting until Fall. I saw one good report out of VA before the hurricane, so I guess head to the triple zeros?

You'll be about an hour behind the fleet.

I was looking to run Sunday but after seeing what was caught yesterday Im not going to waste the fuel. I thought the storm would change things around but it didn't. Boats are still running out and bottom fishing. I just cant see spending the money to bottom fish. I guess I will just put the gear up til this fall or something changes. A couple boats ran out of Va Beach and ended up bottom fishing after a few dolphin so things are slow up there also. Hopefully things will pick back up in 6-8 weeks.

Bingo. I had the best captiains showing me the way. Long as your boat will run with the big boys in the 36 to 40 mph range on cruise stay at least 1/4 mile away from them when fishing so you don't bother then, you might not catch anything but you sure are where your suppose to be.

Something to I call inlet fishing. Started doing a whole lot of that before I sold the Fountain. Come out the inlet, get off shore 1/8th to 1/4th mile drop anchor put 4 rods over cut or live bait and wait. What ever is going in and coming out of that inlet will smell your stuff. When it was slow I caught more like that than I did working hard at it. I'm set up big time for doing that now. Set the whole boat up to still fish. All you got to do is read the resports. If its slow you can still enjoy a day on the water. Fuel burn from OI to inlet fishing. mabye 4 gal a day. and thats if you move around some. Cheap way to enjoy a day or night on the water.

As others predicted this pst Friday was dead for us. No hard temp break. Little bit of grass. Managed a few dolphin and almost had a nice cobia swimming under a big sea turtle eat a bucktail, but no luck. Best grass was in 130ft of water SE of the inlet. First time fishing there for me. I might trailer my boat there when the bite picks up this fall. Still prefer fishing out of Morehead. Probably just because I’m familiar with it.

Bite was awesome on Sunday. 113 boats fishing the Alice Kelly that day, WAY NE. Got away from the pack, pilot whales everywhere, fliers everywhere. Released 1 white, lost 3 others, lost a blue, had 3 or 4 other whites playing around. Had small blackfins playing with the teasers, saw some nice yellows airing out but never got to em as the whites hit us first.

Glad you all had a good day out there. Might make a run to see if we can get into some bills. How deep?

There’s some whites around the fingers off of va beach. We got one on Sunday and some yellowfin. Only 45 miles off of Virginia Beach so might be worth the trailer up here.

We were out there with the pack Sunday as well. Got tired of seeing the boat beside us hooking up so we headed south searching for "our own fish". Best decision we made...in the last hour we missed 2 whites and had a nice blue hook up...tail dance for a bit...and then destroyed my leader before coming loose.
Question of the day...what's the magical depth that the majority of the hook ups occur? Seems you see folks all over the place....some off the canyon...some in the lip....some way inside.
