October Groupers

Chuck Bush has been fishing with me for I believe going on 6 years now and still shows up pumped to go, even more than the last time.  The guys are dead set on bottom fishing, they love the stand-off pull of a nice gag grouper and I can't blame them.  Yesterday, we had a nice steady NE wind but..... there was a extra strong SW current running straight into the wind making the anchoring and fishing process a bit more difficult than it needed to be.  None the less, the guys stuck it out and we fished and moved all day, finally putting together a respectable catch consisting of gag groupers, amber jacks, grunts, black sea bass, trigger fish and a few others.  There's a pretty stout weather front coming today and tomorrow, keeping us tied to.  Fingers crossed to be back after them on Friday and Saturday.  I've still got plenty of availability for October and November fishing charters.    ..

inshore Speckled trouts !

When the wind keeps us inshore, we've been doing pretty well on the speckled trout.  All summer and now still going strong, the speckled trout fishing has been pretty stellar.  On the days when groups have had offshore trips booked and the winds been to much, I've still got the Parker to bail out the trip.  The next 6 weeks are absolute prime dates for speckled and grey trout fishing.  The bluefish and Spanish Mackerel are still being caught in great numbers. As well has some really good numbers of false albacore.  Don't let the weather detour you from a fishing trip, we've got a number of different options to catch fish. ..

Bottom Fish are Hungry

Anyone that ever asks about when's the best time to go fishing off the NC coast, the two months that always come up are May and October.  Well, October's here and its not looking like it will disappoint.  The last several groups that I've had out on bottom fishing trips have put together some fantastic catches made up of gag groupers, vermillion snappers, grunts, black sea bass, triggerfish and more.   The majority of our fishing lately has been in the 90-120 ft range.  I've been fishing a little deeper than in the past due to the tropical swells, that have stirred the bottom water up some.  It makes for a little longer ride, but the variety and quality of fish we've been catching definitely makes up for it.   This is without a doubt the best time to come fishing, whether it inshore or offshore, Give me a call for booking your fall fishing trip. ..

Wahoos, Mahi AND Sailfish!

What a birthday present for 11 yr old Reed.  His mom and dad booked the trip a couple of months ago, what do you know it but it wound up being an slick calm Saturday.  We left out earlier than normal, with hopes of beating some of the other boats out.  The ocean was very much alive first thing, with the first wahoo action only a few minutes after getting things set out.  The action was pretty chaotic for the first several hours, with a number of bites, pull offs and short strikes.  I hooked Reed's sailfish off the flat line, after a short drop back, missing another on the short rigger.  After the morning craziness settled down, we found some really pretty water holding a bunch of flying fish and some floating debris, thats where we picked off another wahoo and Reed's first mahi.  All and all, the day couldn't have gone any better for the Cutler crew.  Thanks Guys, congrats Reed! ..

Old Drum Neuse River Action

The Neuse River Old Drum fishing is winding down for the year.  Fishing has been pretty good again this year, with double digits being a pretty common thing for some groups this season.  The biggest that was caught and released this year was 51", which is an absolute tank of a red drum.  The majority of the fish fall in the NC citation program, deeming them "trophy" status.  If catching some of these monsters is on your list, please contact me for booking information.  The best of the fishing is usually late August and the whole month of September.   ..

Half Day Suprise Mahi

The fishing last week was a bit difficult around Beaufort Inlet due to the falling tide and several pop up storms, so we made a little ride toward the shoals and found plenty of bait and a some hungry fish.  The fish were really on the move, but we did the best we could.  The surprise of the morning were the bailer mahi's that we caught among the spanish mackerels, just goes to show you never know what may bite your hook.  Another day, I had a super nice group from Greenville, we dodged squalls for the better part of the morning but caught some fish, everyone had a great morning out.  Look forward to seeing everyone again next summer. ..

August already

I've been a bit tardy on fishing reports over the course of the summer this year, fortunately I've had a bunch of really nice people to take keeping me busy busy. Here of late the fishing groups have been having some very nice catches on both the half day nearshore trip and also the full day bottom fishing charters.  The half day fishing for spanish mackerels and bluefish has stayed strong, with most days yielding catches of 15-25 mackerels, more on some.  On the last several bottom fishing trips the vermillion snappers, triggerfish and black sea bass have really been chewing.  We had a monster, 74 pound wahoo, on one of our bottom fishing trips.  He was swimming around the boat, eating scraps.  The groups are still scratching out some groupers as well.   The recreational red snapper season has come and gone, we were able catch them pretty well on the days when the wind cooperated.  Soon the neuse river will fire up for the old drum fishery, pretty cool trip if you've never caught one of these dinosaurs.  Please book in advance if you have specific fishing dates the next several months a potentially the best of the year. ..

Summer Fishing was off the hook this week

The Morehead City fishing charters had unbelievably calm weather this week and we found a bunch of hungry fish to go with it.  This week ended a 14 day straight stretch of charters for me, glad to have the people coming fishing no doubt, but a day for rest is fine.  On the half day fishing charters we were still able to put together nice catches of spanish mackerels with a wild card king mackerel mixed in.  On the 3/4 day fishing charters, we fished in the 15 mile range and found loads of bait and plenty of hungry king mackerels to bite our hooks; limits of kings on both days.  Saturday, I had a great group from Virginia (Chad, Channing, Allen and Hunter) and they filled the box on the full day bottom fishing trip.  Gag groupers, cobia, black sea bass, grunts, trigger fish, kings.....  I'm super thankful to everyone that's come fishing so far this year, hope July keeps the good luck rolling.  Check out some of the pictures from the past few trips. ..

Summer is flying by...

Sorry everyone who keeps checking in for fishing reports I've been slammed this year, going about every day.  The last couple weeks of charters have had pretty steady fishing for the half, 3/4 and all day trips.  Inshore the spanish mackerels have been cooperating at some point, catches ranging from 12 fish on the tough days to as many as 50 fish on the fantastic days.  We've also been encountering some king mackerels during our half days, just trolling for spanish.  Offshore a little further King mackerels have been chewing nicely, should also be scattered mahi mahi mixed in as well.  The bottom fishing for groupers,sea bass and other snappers has held its own, producing nice catches for the groups.  This week is completely booked but I still have a some open dates for next week.  Please give me a call for fishing charter information.  ..
