Trip Summary

Hello Anglers, For all of you that wished you could have got onboard for the Blue Water Gulf Stream trip this past Monday August 17, 2015, here's a run down on the action. We traveled southeast 72 miles, the seas were comfortable and a picture perfect day turned into some nice top water action. Trolling the blue water with skirted ballyhoo for about 5 miles we had two knock downs and then a big fin behind the center rigger, it slammed the bait, moved over to the next line and again slammed the bait, the third time was not a charm. It slammed the bait again and the Marlin disappeared. A few minutes later a wahoo in the spread but missed the hook, again another wahoo but a short strike. Finally we hook up on a nice Bull Dolphin, boated it, made the circle and hook up again on another nice Mahi, but after a spectacular display of acrobatics it threw the hook. This group got to witness a great display of pelagic top water action and then decided to do some deep water bottom fishing and put some nice Vermillion Snapper in the box and released some reef donkeys ( Amberjack). 2 Attachments

2021 Fishing Action
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.
