Overnight Fishing Trips
Joe Coopedge and friends PeeWee, Gary D , Marshall Jenkins, RJ White and Jim Gearing all from the Culpepper VA area had a great day on white marlins releasing 16 on the weekend of Sept 10. This tremendous deep sea fishing action occured about 51 miles off of the Oregon Inlet Fishing Center in waters about 1500 feet deep. This trip was an over nighter in which we fished for swordfish throughout the night; and we did have one bite, but it was not on for long. The weather offshore was perfect and the fishing was red hot; we caught some dolphin thru the night and did hear of one swordfish landed on the Hooker which wieghed about 100 pounds. Thanks Joe, see when the stripers show up.
