Well after an awesome week of weather the fishing could not have been any better. We caught everything that we set our goals out to catch which was a wide range of fish from 1 ft or water to 150ft. The Red Drum, Black Drum Speckeled Trout and Flounder provided steady action in the Backwater behind Bald Head Island. The Spanish Mackerel and Shark Fishing has been hot on the Nearshore trips off Oak Island NC. The offshore fishing is steady as always with Blackbass everywhere while we are targeting Big Scamps groupers. Just remember Backwater to Bluewater we got you covered.
Over the last week we have dodged rain for the last 4 days but it did not stop us from catching some fish. The flounder bite has really picked up and perfect timing since the drum slowed down a little. The Sharks are still around also but this week should produce great catches for all the charters. Camera is on the boat and I will upload sometime this week.
We just had a beautiful week here at Oak Island followed up by some great Catching. The Shark bite has been on fire and provided lots of action for the customers with comments like “who needs to watch shark week”. Spanish Mackerel are here 1 trip but gone the 2nd but we are still catching them just have to make big moves to find the fish. Live baiting for Spanish have produces some huge 6-7lb class fish also. Backwater fishing has slowed down some with the water getting hotter but the fish should pick back up soon.
The Red Drum are still around and the flounder are picking up the pace also in the backwater behind Bald Head Island. The nearshore is still producing Spanish Mackerel and they are all on top of the water while we are catching them then you look around they are gone. The Big Spinner Sharks are chewing with each group catching 5-10 pushing 100lbs looks like a fun week with great weather coming up.
Sorry for the delays but we have been busy putting smiles on all the Charters faces here at Oak Island. The Red Drum seem to be everywhere with a Flounder and Trout mixed in on almost every trip. The Blacktip Sharks have been very easy to catch with every trip catching 10+ on our 1/2 day Nearshore trip. Come on down and see what its all about.
Sorry for the delay in the fishing reports but we have had near perfect weather and fishing conditions here at Oak Island. First of all the Red Drum bite is heating back up with some very nice Flounder mixed it. On all our Shark trips the last 3 day we have caught them so fast at times the bait will only make it 10ft from the boat. Finally we got offshore to join in on the Live Bait African Pompano action. Once again beating the fish up from the backwater to the bluewater we got you covered with success.
Ill make this short and simple. The wind as been blowing pretty good here at Oak Island and the boats have not been able to make it out into the ocean. Just because its rough out there does not mean we have been sitting around because the Red Drum are still willing to put a good bend in the rods and smiles on all the clients that have joined us the last 3 days. Looks like we will be back in the ocean around Wed but there is still a lot of Backwater to explore this week.
Had a little time to shoot a video of this young man showing a shark who was boss. It also shows the advantage of a Center Console fishing boat with 360 degrees to walk around on a clean level floor. A true fishing platform, hope you enjoy the video.
Wow, this has been an awesome week weather wise and even better fishing. The Blacktip Sharks have been trying to jump in the boat with us all week long while fishing off Oak Island. Most of the sharks avg 40lbs but when each have day is catching around 25 fish a trip that’s big enough. All week you could see the sharks swimming around boat and basically pick out the fish you wanted to catch. Now in the backwater Red Drum fishing is still steady except for Fri afternoon is slowed down for us but we will find them again no worries here. Looks like Ill be in the backwater this weekend while the wind blows again
Looks like the fish have made a showing again off Oak Island with Spanish Mackerel right off the beach along with the Blacktip Sharks. Capt John reported tons of Pogies around the big hill which was the main attraction for the other game fish. The Backwater fishing is still very steady with Red Drum and Flounder. Looks like the Grouper better hide cause Im going after them in the morning.
