What a day!! James Ellis and his crew hammered the Mahi along with three Yellowfin Tuna and a stray Blackfin!! Great day!!

Fantastic work behind the reels fellas!!

Another great day on the Pelican!! A great catch of nice gaffer Mahi, Yellowfin Tuna and a White Marlin release!!! Great work!!!

The boats are killing it!! Weather was tough today, we’re crossing our fingers for the next few days. All together it’s been excellent fishing!!


Time to get your Tuna game on!!!! I’m ecspecially pleased at the bookings that have been coming in for May & June! Both fantastic months for Mahi and Tuna!! Also, it’s not too soon to consider July. Personally, JULY is one of my favorite months to fish due to being a “transition” time for ALL our target species! Anything is possible in July! If you want to fill the box with meat this Spring now would be a good time to get your prime dates in.

Not much has changed for Mexico sailfish releases. Numbers across the board are steadily consistent and increasing by the day. Not a bad way to brush off the winter blues!

At the end of the day, we are very much looking forward to the beginning of our fishing season this spring from Oregon Inlet! Check our availability page for your prime dates and give me a call/email. Always happy to chat about fishing!

Fishing continues to be in double digits!! Steady releases between 20 and 40 for the fleet there. Sounds like fun!!Keen M

FUN!! FUN!! FUN!!image


“Good evening ma’am!

Just got off the boat from another great year with Arch, ended our two days with 49 sails, love it here!


There you have it!! Another great day with Arch! Fishing has picked up nicely and the weather has been great for fishing! They are having a BLAST!

I have been busy here booking the Pelican and it truly helps the winter blues! I love chatting about our great fishing here and looking forward to the fishing offshore for 2016! Catching up with our regulars and guiding the unfamiliar to the best date for what they want to catch is what I look forward to. Give us a call, we’re happy to help out. If you have dates in mind, better sooner than later!

Fishing started slow for the Keen M but has picked up in double digit releases. There are reports of seeing sailfish in the twenty and thirties..like turning on the light switch!

Looking ahead, it’s time to get your dates on the books!! Yellowfin Tuna fishing starts May 1 for the Pelican! Get your booking in before someone scoops up your opportunity. Give us a call 252-441-3197, email arch@fishthepelican.com or see our availability page. See you at the docks!
