Finally Oak Island Fishing Charters got into a good bite of King Mackerel today and we also had a nice cobia to go in the cooler. Looks like Friday-Sunday the bite will fire up on the beach.
Oak Island Fishing Charters fished the beach today hoping the fall migration of the jumping King Mackerel would do their thing. First 10 min 25lber in the boat then alot of riding. On our way home the bite turned on for about an hour so tomorrow should be game on. Oct. can be some of the best fishing close to the beach but just like any other kind of fishing its up to the fish.
Oak Island Fishing Charters went looking for King Mackerel close to the beach first thing but they were not around or did not want to bite. We moved off a few miles and were catching Big black bass and Gag grouper as fast as the bait could hit the water. Cobia and sharks were also part of the rod bending. Looks like Sat. might be the next day to sneak out.
Oak Island Fishing Charters played behind the Shrimp boats again today and the big Sharks are still around. After all the wind we have had its good to see something is still around. We have several days of great weather coming so now its off to looking for King Mackerel or Grouper.
Where did the fish go today? No Kings, No Drum, No Sharks I had to be in the wrong spot all the time today but we really had no option because I had friends fishing from Oak Island all the way down to Mrytle Beach and it was the same story “dead ocean”. So we packed up came in and will just do it on another day.
Oak Island Fishing Charters went to the backwater today and had a tough time. First stop was fish after fish but the drum were under sized so we kept plugging along. We hooked several fish that took off and broke our line but the ones that get away don’t count also had a undersized flounder. Everyday is different you just need to enjoy yourself on the water like the group did today.
Oak Island Fishing Charters set the spread out for King Mackerel this morning and as luck would have it they did not want to bite our hooks. Several boats in the area caught fish but the big bite has not really happened yet. The morning was not a waste because there are shrimp boats everywhere and that equals big sharks and they were very hungry. The wind is suppose to turn to the NE and I will have to say I LOVE a NE or East wind this time of year because it makes the King Mackerel go crazy. So the old wise tale of wind out of the east fish bite the least is just another excuse.
Oak Island Fishing Charters went chasing the Red Drum this morning and all we could catch were over the slot size. You cant control what size you catch because somedays are just better than others. Look out King Mackerel here we come tomorrow.
Oak Island Fishing Charters went searching for the King Mackerel that we did not catch over the weekend. Even though we did not catch a fish that would have won the tournament we did catch a good money fish (day late). Also the sharks are still around and they are hungry but will be on the move as the water cools off.
Today Oak Island Fishing Charters put the kite up in the air for the first King trip of the fall season and will have to say it cant get much better. Our hook up ratio was not the best today but we had 17 bites and only landed 8 nice kings while fishing on the beach. Strong cold front coming hope the bigs
