Hello Anglers, Finally after fishing for 21 days I have a chance to get a catching report out to all of you anxious to wet a hook. With the inshore water warming the larger bottom fish moved offshore where the temperature is more suitable at depths of 100 to 150 feet. The recent trips 50 miles offshore have been producing nice catches of Scamp Grouper, Gag Grouper, Red Grouper, Black and Snowy Grouper, Big Trigger fish, Vermillion Snapper, Mango Snapper and Amberjack. On a recent trip one group caught a 38" Scamp and a 25" Gag, limited out on Vermillion Snapper, wore themselves out on many 50lb Amberjack. The youngster in the group wanted a shark and what a shark they got with a 400lb Nurse Shark. I had a young man out celebrating his 70th birthday and matched his age with a 70lb Amberjack, these Reef Donkeys will wear out the most fit angler.. After boating the fish he handed the rod to my mate Terrell and said he is done. The King fish have started to show up and Pipe Dream Charters is ready to defend their first place title in the Jacksonville Greater Kingfish Tournament in July. This past week we have put several Kings in the box and have had numerous knock downs, short bites and rocketing displays from some nice smokers. Closer to shore the anglers are catching plenty of fish just not many to take home. This Past Sunday was a first for Pipe Dream Charters with Yellow Tail Snapper, this species is usually not found much farther north then Miami. If you are looking to put fish in the box the full day trip 50 miles offshore with Pipe Dream Charters is the catcher. With June coming to an end Pipe Dream Charters has 4 open days with July and August rapidly getting booked. If you are considering an offshore trip call Capt. Scott with Pipe Dream Charters to confirm a reservation. Until the next time "TIGHT LINES and BLUE SKIES" Capt. Scott Thompson Pipe Dream Charters **hidden content** **hidden content** **hidden content**

2021 Fishing Action
February 7, 2021
Good Morning Anglers, The 2021 fishing season is getting started and Pipe Dream III with Captain Scott and 1st Mate Ronnie are ready to help you experience some adventures on The Southeast Atlantic. Beginning January 4, 2021 the vessel Pipe Dream III underwent some major overhauls. Starting with the engines our master mechanic improved the performance and reliability. Adding new 4 blades props has increased the speed to reach the fishing hot spots sooner and give the anglers more time to catch a trophy. Whether it is trolling the Blue Water at the Gulf Stream for Wahoo, Mahi, Tuna, Sailfish and Marlin or Bottom fishing for Grouper, Cobia, Trigger Fish, Amberjack or Various Snapper species the 1st mate will be there to assist you getting the trophy onboard. Grouper season opens May 1st and our Red Snapper season has not been announced by NOAA. By mid April thru early June the Mahi should be showing up in good numbers, mixing in some Tuna and Wahoo makes a great day at the ledge. Currently, closer to shore, good size Black Sea Bass and Bull Reds are on the reefs and wrecks. Mid May thru mid September trolling for Kings will be giving some fast paced action and with the local King tournaments beginning in May, Pipe Dream III will be looking forward to some charter anglers lucky enough to get on the board for some tournament prize money. For those anglers not wanting to venture far from shore and experience some hot action, the Tarpon will be on the Jetties. With sunny skies, warmer weather and sea temperatures rising vacation season is right around the corner. If you are considering a day for some red hot action or just a relaxing day on the water call Pipe Dream Charters to secure your reservation.
