June Report – Hot Fishing!

Tuesday, 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

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.
