The post frontal weather is pleasant and tuna are scattered some 30 plus miles NE of Oregon Inlet.  Pete Bogden and his buddies from all over managed to catch 5 nice yellow fin and a black in 73 – 77 degree water. 4 dolphin also managed to find there way into the box.  Word is a few drum are being caught off the beach.

Jeff Trice and his friends had a nice day on the Pelican with 15 Yellow fin up to 60 lbs. and a few black fin to make up for slack.  While it was a bit squally on the 30 plus mile ride to the NE it laid out a bit in the afternoon.  Jeff and his entourage will give it another whirl in the AM.

The white marlin bite has started to wane as is expected this time of year.  Let’s hope the weather allows for a prolonged tuna bite.  The Pelican has a few days open during the week through October if your so inclined.

If anyone has any nice photos or a video taken on board the Pelican or at the dock please send them to us so we may post them on the new website.  (  Thanks

The Pelican along with most of the fleet are out trying to catch yellow fin this weekend.  A few black fin are mixed in. It’s a pretty good showing of 40 – 70 lb fish.   If  your willing to run far enough a few white marlin can still be raised.  Let’s hope the wind stay’s down after this front passes.

Captain Bracher had Joe, Connie and 9 year old Wes Kaylor on board the Pelican today.  The weather and seas where calm enough to make the 30+  mile run a pleasant one and the tuna ended up cooperating. Wes helped his parents landed 7 nice yellow fins, a dolphin fish and several black fins !

Pelican had a great day today,  great weather and calm seas today.  Pelican landed seven blackfin tuna and  yellow fin tuna weighing in at 50-77lbs.  Debbie catching the 77lb Yellowfin.  Great Job Debbie! A great start to our tuna season.

Pelican is hoping for a few more shots at the marlin and looking forward to October and November for another great Tuna season.  We’ve had great signs already with citation tuna being caught.

Yesterday, Pelican headed in search of the White Marlin, Picked up two whites and five dolphin.  Battling weather this week, at the dock today.

Due to weather we weren’t able to get out, water looks good for tomorrow if we can get out, 50/50% chance, hoping the weather cooporates.

The day started out fairly calm and gave way to northeast winds moving in.  Pelican had a great day with Five Yellowfin Tuna, one Wahoo, One Sailfish, Ten Blackfin Tuna.

We had a wonderful day with friends, made the trip north and was well worth it.  Caught nine out of seventeen whites.  Great day!
