The fishing season has started to get better and better with each day.
Today I took some very good repeat clients out for a fun filled day of fishing. We had intentions on running offshore to find some Kingmackerel and bottom fish but due to the north winds we decided to try our luck near the beach.
It was a success. We landed the first Spanish Mackerel of the year and ended the day with 23 fish in the cooler. We had a mix of Atlantic Bonito, Blue fish, and Spanish Mackerel.
Also saw some big schools of poggies which is our staple bait fish. This is great because the King Mackerel and Cobia normally show up like clock work around Mother's day.
We are booking up fast. So please if you want a great fishing trip call me today and reserve your spot.
We have 3 boats to accommodate you and any type fishing you may have on your bucket list.

The inshore waters of Holden Beach North Carolina are starting to really heat up. Ran a trip with some repeat clients Eric and Terry Burns and for the first 4 hours of the trip we only landed 3 short flounder and 1 short red drum. We headed to a spot that normally holds fish most of the year and I figured we could probably pull a few red's out to end the day. What I didn't expect was to sit in that spot for over an hour and catch red fish on almost every cast. We landed over 25 to 30 redfish off 1 dock.
This tells me that the Redfish are still swimming in big schools and once we locate them they are normally hungry. This can make for some really fun fishing on light spinning tackle.
Give us a call if your wanting to go catch some fish. 910-448-3474
Ran offshore on Saturday and the conditions were a little tough. We dodged rain storms most of the day but that didn't keep the fish from biting. We were fishing in an area that holds tons of grouper but legally we can't keep them so we targeted Monster Black Sea Bass and other bottom fish. The Jacks ate us alive and gave everybody on the boat a good fight. We ended our trip with our limits of bottom fish.
Now is the time to Book your trip for Live Bait Fishing for King Mackerel and Cobia. I suspect within the next two weeks thru Mothers day weekend there will be a strong migration of these fish cruising our Brunswick County Beaches looking for an easy meal. I'm getting reports of tons of bait all over the beach just south of us in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. That's a good sign for what's to come.
Check back often on our Fishing Reports page to see what we've been catching.

Ran a trip today and smoked the Redfish.
First cast landed a nice Black Drum. The mood was set to have a great day and that's what we did. Except we went 3 straight hours without a single bite.
In the last 45 minutes of the trip we landed 9 Red Drum and 1 Trout. It was a great way to end the day.
