May Report

Saturday, 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!

Fished Bald Head Island Rodeo 2011

Monday, June 6th, 2011
Fished Friday and Saturday and had two great days off shore.  Most everyone has heard of the major bite going on down south the past week or two.  Our waters have slowed and a smaller class of fish moved in.   So we decided to take a long boat ride both days.  We found the fish and had all the big gaffer Dolphin you wanted.  Saw a couple of free jumper bill fish and had a few bill fish hooked up around us.  We led the tournment after the first day by a few pounds.  Stream Weaver was in second and the Music Man was in third.  We all went back to the same area to try and find the water we fished the day before.   Well it moved the wind had shifted to the NE and pushed it futher off shore and to the SW.  We had another great day close to 200 pounds of Doplhin alone.  We left to fishing grounds to get back with plenty of time to weigh in our catch and collect our prize.  Everthing was just going too good I guess… we lost our port engine with 23 miles to go.  So we where DQ’d and our fish did not count.  Oh well, thats how it goes some times.  Mike King and the stream weaver took home first.  We ended up holding up with second place and our fished were weighed just to see what we has.  We had it won three time over with more than 50 pounds over any other boat.  More pictures to come.

Spring fishing is ramping up off of Wilmington

Wednesday, March 30th, 2011

Spring is rapidly approaching and the fishing is beginning to pick up. Fishing off of Wilmington is good with king mackerel and wahoo being caught on full day trips. Beginning in April and May half day trips will be productive for kings and quarter day trips will be full of spanish mackerel and blues. Book your wilmington or wrightsville beach charter today, spots are filling up fast and the phone is ringing off the hook.

Tight lines,
