1-14-13 Red Drum Missing In Action (M.I.A)1-14-13 Man what a day. This was one of those days I would have given my right arm to have my client Micheal Roth and his mother from Ocean Isle catch some fish.. The tide just wasnt going to be good until later that evening and I knew conditions were not in my favor. We fished for 4 hours with out one single sniff from a fish. We pulled up in a spot that we had fished earlier that day and everything looked good. Tide was down and saw a little bit of bait swimming near bank.. I set the anchor, baited the hooks and within seconds we were hooked up and the fight was on. We ended up catching 3 redfish and a decent 17 in. flounder all in a 15 minute period and ended the day with a smile on everyone's face.. It's those kind of days that really make me appreciate what I do for a living and that not just fishing but making memories for people that will last a lifetime.
1-13-2013 Flounder Fishing Offshore1-13-2013 This past Sunday I took some family out for a fun-filled day on the water. The winds were light and slight and the ocean looked like a lake. We decided to push-off to a ledge 28 miles out in 80+ ft. of water. Over the years when bottom fishing for Black Sea Bass we would catch a flounder every now and then on squid. So today since the Black Sea Bass fishery is closed I wanted to try and do some jigging on the down side of the ledge away from all the sea bass.. It started off slow but after about 20 minutes of running away from the sea bass we finally picked up a nice 18in. flounder. We were drifting over the ledge and would pick up a sea bass on every drop but once we were down current and not marking any structure or bottom fish on the fish finder is when we knew we were in flounder territory. We managed to pick up 5 keeper flounder, the biggest 4+lbs. on Sunday January 6 2013.
