Marvelous May

Marvelous May is living up to its name! We are seeing great numbers of fish, both offshore and inshore. Last week, we ran out to the break, and caught some nice Mahi Mahi and grouper. The kings are also on fire nearshore. Soon we should see more cobia show up along the beaches. Yesterday, I ran a 4 hour Backwater, and we stayed busy all morning catching very nice redfish, keeper flounder, black drum, and bluefish.

Saturday Shenanigans

Had an awesome full day action packed trip with friends. Caught flounder and redfish all day. Moved around and did a little exploring along the way and we were not disappointed. The gulf stream is red hot right now, give us a call 910-540-7332 and we can make it happen!

Golden Hour

I had an opportunity to run out last night with only about an hour to fish. Stripper minnows did the trick, 3 reds were released to see another day.

Weekend Wrap Up

I ran a couple of trips over the weekend, and caught some very nice flounder and redfish. The water is heating up to the high 60s and rapidly rising. Large striper minnows have showed up on the sandbars at low tide and those are they key to getting bigger flounder and redfish to bite. On the other hand, its a shock how many spots are in our waters right now. It has been a cold spring until the past week, and that has turned all kinds of fish on. The gulf stream fishing is also heating up with water temps around 75 in the Steeples area. The next couple of weeks should start to improve both inshore and offshore!

More Inshore Action!

Had the pleasure of guiding Larry, Dale, and Abbie for a half day inshore trip. Redfish and Black Drum were the deal today! We caught 4 keeper Black Drum, a few throwbacks, a beautiful just under-slot red,  quite a few croakers and even some spots. Had a great time and look forward to seeing them again!

Backwater Fishing is heating up!

Yesterday I had the privilege of guiding Doctor Martin and his son Shaun on a 4 hour backwater trip. It started off a little slow, but after we found the fish, we couldn’t keep a bait in the water! We caught many black drum, keeping 6 for a good family dinner. We also caught redfish, and our first flounder of the year! Call 910-540-7332 for your Holden Beach Fishing Charter today!

Easter Weekend Wrap-Up

Happy Easter everyone! First off I would like to thank everyone who came out to Daves Outpost spring seminar series to make it such a great event! After I was done there, I headed straight to the water to run a 4 hour with a great father/son duo. We caught a couple redfish, and a few very nice black drum! It turned out to be a great day!

4 Hour Action

Had a great group of guys join me this morning for a 4 hour inshore trip. It started off slow, but we finished on a good note! We caught a nice Bluefish immediately followed by a beautiful 21 inch speckled trout! Also lost a few reds to the dock. Had a great time with these guys and look forward to fishing with them again in the future! Call 910-540-7332 for an Ocean Isle or Holden Beach Fishing Charter.

Inshore Report

Today started out at 38 degrees and a 25 mph NE wind. I had a tough group of guys determined to catch some fish. We moved to several places before finding a great stock of redfish mainly 22-25 inches. We caught many fish with several in the upper slot. The water has cooled off some more to 51 but that should rise after the warm week ahead of us. There have also been quite a few black drum in the area with a few trout mixed in. Now is a good time to go fishing! Call us today for your Ocean Isle, or Holden Beach Inshore Charter. 910-540-7332

More Inshore Action!

Over the weekend, I had an outing with Hunter Kendall and Brian Richard. We noticed the water temperatures have cooled back off to 53 degrees but that did not stop the fish from chewing. It was a really slow/dead bite around the high tide but as soon as it started falling the bite was on! We caught over 30 fish with most of them being upper slot redfish. Many of these fish were caught on mud minnows and bass assassin lures.There were also quite a few black drum mixed in. These fish all came off of cut shrimp. At the end of the day, we caught some trout in the concrete canals on topwater lures. Ocean Isle Beach Fishing Charters are coming up soon! Spring and warm weather are right around the corner, so call 910-540-7332 to reserve your spot.
