July Report

July 21st, 2012

Summertime fishing remains strong, with great catches on half and full day trips!  On full days, we are catching king mackerel and dolphin (mahi mahi) with a few sailfish sightings.  The bottom fishing remains very strong, with grouper, grunts and sea bass making up most of the catch.  A few cobia are still around and we are catching them while we are bottom fishing.  Closer to the shores of Wrightsville and Carolina Beach, the spanish mackerel and flounder fishing has been on fire.  Double digit catches of both species are not uncommon!  We have also been catching a few larger coastal sharks, such as blacktips, lemons and spinner sharks. 

June Report – Hot Fishing!

June 5th, 2012

Summer is here and the Wrightsville Beach fishing is heating up nicely!  On our half day trips, the spanish mackerel fishing has been excellent, with catches in the double digits nearly each trip.  There have also been a few king mackerel and cobia around, some cobia as large as 60 lbs.  A bit further off the beach, we are catching plenty of cobia, amberjack and grouper, with the occasional king mackerel and gaffer dolphin mixed in.  The black sea bass fishing has been excellent with limits on half day trips being the norm.  We’ve seen a few sailfish, but have not yet landed one this season.  The bottom and grouper fishing has been great, with a few gag grouper tipping the scales at 20+ lbs!

May Report

May 5th, 2012

Offshore fishing in Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach NC is really starting to pick up!  The opening of grouper season has started off nicely, with good catches of gag grouper, grunts and porgy.  Trolling for king mackerel has been hit or miss, but the gaffer dolphin fishing in the gulf stream is strong, with a few wahoo still around as well.  Closer to the beach, we have been catching some nice sized bluefish, a few spanish mackerel, and the bonito and flase albacore are biting on casting jigs.  As the weather and water warms, the fishing is only going to get better!
