    I would like to hear back from anyone that has successfully jigged Bluefin out of the Wilmington area. I know some have tried, but I want to hear about successes.

    Also are there any charters offering the chance?

    Thanx

    I don't want to discourage you, but the chance of hooking a giant on a jig there is vey slim. It is not worth to try it.

    I meant from presenting top water or swimming baits to them shallow with light equipment.

    Now, are there any success stories?

    Wait a few more days. Commercial season will be over. Give it a week after that and the recreational bite may very likely be on. I can't recommend anyone in particular, but Morehead City is the place you'll want to be.

    There has never been any success jigging BFT out of Wilmington area or Morehead City.Now I have participated and have succesfully jigged BFT out of Oregon Inlet 2 year's ago,but they were small one's approx. 100lb to 150 lb's.
    If you want to jig out of Wilmington forget BFT,go for A.J.'s,Grouper,Snapper and Blackfin Tuna.I know a guide out of Wilmington, "Di-Hard Charter's" (Steve),He will make your arm's hurt and your freezer full.. P.M.me if you need detail's.
