Today Oak Island Fishing Charters was swinging for the fence chasing African Pompano but when lunch time rolled around we needed to fish for something else if we wanted to bring something back home. We did not have the right bait but we had a nice catch of Big Scamp and Gag grouper and all the Amberjacks we wanted to catch. The big blacksea bass are also a pain when you are trying to catch grouper but they eat well also. This is one of the Big Scamps. Go to our facebook page and watch the video.
Oak Island Fishing Charters saw plenty of action on the nearshore trips today with Spanish Mackerel. Its nice when the Spanish fishing is this easy and we have been doing our part in helping the fish. It has taken years to talk people into keeping only what they are going to eat. This whole summer we have been doing this then going shark fishing (seems to be working).
Oak Island Fishing Charters had 2 half day adventures today. The first we steady picked at Spanish Mackerel then caught a nice Blacktip Shark. On the second trip we went straight Shark fishing and caught 4 Blacktips but we had 5 other good runs including one that broke our line. Hope to repeat tomorrow.
