This morning Oak Island Fishing Charters was out on a 1/2 day Trout search. Well it did not take long and we was catching them 2 at a time. When they send me the pictures I will post but for now I sure hope we can get offshore one more time while the kings are thick.
Today the King Mackerel were all but jumping in the boat for us. We found 68 degree clear water loaded up with bait about 35 miles out and at times had 2-3 fish on at once. Hope to be back offshore Mon. Waiting on pictures.
If you are sitting around in all this bad weather then check out our latest sailfish video from Oak Island Fishing Charters
The last two days we caught around 40 kings and a big sailfish. While this is still not what our fall king mackerel fishing should be it will get better once the water cools down enough we can fish cooler temp breaks. Looks like we will have plenty of time to tie enough rigs to last us through the winter since this storm is moving up the coast.
The last four days nearshore has been a roller-coaster ride while fishing for King Mackerel. For some reason they would bite one day and “lock jaw” the next. This is fishing and we can only be at the right place at the right time. Now on the days the Kings did not want to bite the biggest sharks we have caught all year are here and they are a blast to catch. So tight lines with big fish have been no problem. Looks like Tues and Wed we will be looking for the King Mackerels again.
The past several days has provide some hot Shark fishing and King Mackerel fishing. The Sharks are 100-200lbs and all you want to catch. Now the King Mackerel is a different story you have to be very patient and wait for the tide to get right. Once the tide is right its wide open with King Mackerel jumping on every Live Bait that’s swimming behind the boat. The fish are still in the larger size with fish avg is 30lbs. Fall fishing nearshore is great with Live Bait.
Once again today we proved Live Bait for King Mackerel nearshore is a hot ticket this time of year. Good news is it should only get better as the water temps ease down to the low 70’s. Starting to get some pictures in from the last several Live Bait king trips with Big Kings and Big Spanish. Remember live bait fall fishing makes good fishing better.
Yesterday was the worst grouper trip I have ever had. Now that is a bold statement but we never caught the 1st grouper, although the Snappers, triggerfish, jacks and blackbass wanted to bite the grouper did not. Im still trying to think of a reason since we have limited out on just about every grouper trip for many years. King Mackerel or Wahoo for the rest of the month since I need some time to let that trip heal itself.
