Title says it all, today the Spanish Mackerel were so thick and hungry I dont know how you could not catch one. The really great thing today was I think we topped our best ever single day shark “catching”. After 3 trips and almost 12 hours of Shark fishing we caught 100 sharks. Yes you read that right we had a little spot that I could not even get the rod in the rod holder most of the time. I know a 100 is a lot to keep up with but when you have a brand new box of 100 hooks and have to call the 3rd trip off 1 hour early cause they are all gone that says it all. I will post pictures and videos later but they are starting to come in on our Facebook page now. Flounder fishing in the morning.
Finally the whole package is back again with Oak Island Fishing Charters. The flounder bite continues to be strong. The Spanish Mackerel we were catching during the blow last week at Carolina Beach looks to be off Oak Island again so thats a good thing also the sharks are hungry. Looks like a busy weekend catching nearshore fish.
The flounder have been biting very well the last several days for Oak Island Fishing Charters backwater fishing trips. Also got word on the Big Spanish Mackerel today from a good friend his words were “they are chewing the bottom of the boat out”. It sure has been nice catching these flounder while all this wind want let us get in the ocean. Hope they are around in the morning.
The last several days has been a roller coaster ride as far as the fishing goes. The flounder bite has really picked with our backwater trips and on our nearshore trips we have been running to Carolina Beach to get into some protection from the SW winds. The spanish bite has been good if you get on the school of fish but can be very slow if you miss them but thats how fishing is anyway right? There is plenty of bait at Carolina Beach and the fish are definitely there. Also the Sharks are behind the Shrimp boats. Looks like we will be able to fish off Oak Island towards the end of the week. Even though it has been very nice at Carolina Beach once the winds settle I still might go that direction just cause the fish are there instead of taking a boat ride off Oak Island.
The last several days Oak Island Fishing Charters has been busy catching good numbers of Flounder between 3-6 pounds. We have also been doing well on Spanish Mackerel and Sharks while fishing in calm waters even though it has been windy off Oak Island. I will post some pictures when things slow down
Finally we are putting Spanish Mackerel in the boat on our 1/2 day trips. Today was steady all day long on both 1/2 day trips and the best part is we are fishing in calm water. Stay tuned to see if we can keep this action up all week.
