Winter Report

Its the beginning of February and were coming off of on of the best trout seasons we have seen in a long time. Although it is slowing down some now, this should mean that the trout will be back around in very good numbers in March and April. Right now we are catching trout, redfish, sheepshead, and black drum.
The fishing is still good and will only continue to improve with warmer weather. We are booking spring and summer trips for 2020 now, so go ahead and give us a call and get your date locked in for your Ocean Isle Beach Inshore Fishing Charter! We are also booking offshore trips.

Spring Report

As April is halfway over, the temperatures are warming up and the fish are are transitioning from their wintertime patterns to their summertime patterns. We are starting to see some bait fill into the creeks, and fish are following. We have seen a few keeper flounder over the past couple weeks, but the main target has been red and black drum. There are still some trout around, but not in the numbers they were over the past few weeks. The fishing is very good right now, so give us a call to book your Ocean Isle Beach Fishing Charter! 910-540-7332

Inshore Bite is on Fire!

Great inshore bite

The past few days we have seen well above average temperatures and that led to well above average fishing! Ran a trip Thursday afternoon that was donated to calvin Stanley’s fund, and we were rewarded with a limit of keepers trout and released many more, some good quality redfish and a couple black drum! Yesterday I ventured out and found some schooled up redfish ranging from 16-30 inches! Come get in on the action!

Bluefin time!

Got our first bluefin of 2019 this past weight measuring in at 100” and coring our around 450 pounds!

Black Bass Limits

The other day, we made a 6 hour trip around 15 miles offshore. We caught a 4 man limit of 14-16 inch Black Sea bass which are great eating fish. To get in on the action give us a call at 910-540-7332 to book your next Ocean Isle Beach Fishing Charter!

Coldest day of the year=hottest fishing

Had a very cold start to the morning today, but that didn’t stop the fish from chewing. Had a citation size trout along with many more keepers. Also had some very nice redfish. Give us a call to book your Ocean isle beach fishing charter!

Offshore Report

Wow! We had a great end to 2018! On Sunday Capt. Tripp teamed up with Matt Canady on their Mercury Powered Onslow Bay, The Reel Exterminator. They reported an awesome bite that included tripling up on sails and quadrupling up on Wahoos. Like fishing goes sometimes, only two Wahoos made it on ice. They ended Sunday weighing a mid 30’s and mid 40’s fish for the Capt. Roger’s Wahoo Tournament. They returned Monday to a slow Wahoo bite, but there was some action with other species to keep things interesting.

On Monday myself and Capt. Hook teamed up with Preston and Julie Kendall on the Fishin Tradition. There was a slow Wahoo bite but we did end up with a mid 40’s. Where the Wahoo bite lacked, the Sail bite made up for it. Many boats reported multiple sail releases. We also got surprised by catching a kingfish and had 2 black fin.

If you are interested in getting in on the bite, give us a call and let’s go!

Dec. 25-29 Report

We have fished a couple of days since Christmas and the Redfish bite has been red hot. We have also seen some nice Speckled Trout mixed in with the plentiful small fish. Yesterday we had all of our Reds scale over 25 inches along with a 4 pound Trout. The rain has been sparatic and the outside temperature has been changing, but the water is still clear and the fish are still eating. We have also seen a few whiting in areas we have been fishing on Carolina rigs with cut shrimp.
