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.  ..

Hate to see May be over

Fishing charters this month have had consistently some of the best trips I can remember.  The month of May typically has pretty stellar fishing but the weather actually cooperated with us as well.  The past several trips have been nothing short, with crews putting together great catches on the Bottom fishing as well as the trolling for both Mahi Mahi, Kings and Spanish mackerels.  As the calendar turns the Big Rock Blue Marlin tournament will soon begin, fingers crossed that this will be my year for a fish of a lifetime.  The next available date open for charter is June 18 and plenty of openings still throughout the summer, please contact me for booking information.   ..

All Smiles

The Atlantic Beach Fishing Charters did well again this week.  Earlier in the week, the targets have been cobia and bottom fish, with successful trips on each.  There seemed to be a better showing from the cobia this week, with some nicer fish being seen and caught.  I'm hoping that this will continue, we should have them around for another couple of weeks.  Wednesday we sight fished for a few hours once the wind calmed down, ended up seeing 6 fish, catching 2.  Thursday, the plan was to target groupers,sea bass and anything else that would bite.  The ocean was a bit choppy, but Rick, Ben and Donna ended up with a great catch of gag groupers and black sea bass.  So far this month, I'd call the bottom fishing fantastic. I sure hope things continue.  I have some open days for the next couple weeks, please contact me for more fishing charter information.   ..

The fish are hungry, anglers are happy...

The weather finally cooperated nicely this week for everyone and the fish were hungry when we got to them.  This week we started Monday and Tuesday cobia fishing, the conditions were right but couldn't quite get in front of one, but the big sharks and rays kept the anglers engaged.  Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, the charters set out with bottom fish on their minds and were rewarded with nice catches of gag groupers, black sea bass, grunts, triggerfish and AJ's.   Friday on the way in, I got on the bridge and hunted for a cobia on the way home.  No catches for us, but we had several encounters pretty quick.  I've still got plenty of availablity in the coming weeks for anyone thinking a fishing trip whether its grouper, cobia, king mackerels or Spanish mackerels I'll do my best to get you in the action. ..

Great Fishing For May So Far

The charter fishing off Atlantic Beach for the last couple of weeks has been pretty strong, both nearshore and offshore alike.  On the half day trips spanish mackerel, bluefish and albacores have provided plenty of action.  May 4, we participated in the Reeln' for research tournament, couldn't quite find the big bite this year to get on the top, but finished a strong second.  May 1 opened shallow water grouper season and they've been chewing ever since.  On the bottom fishing trips the crew has been able put together a nice catch of gag groupers, sea bass, grunts and a few others.  The cobia fishing hasn't fired off yet, conditions are right with water temps warming to the low 70's now and good sign of bait, hopefully any day now for them.  If a summer vacation trip is in the plans please call ahead, days are beginning to fill in.   ..
