Oak Island Fishing Charters Weekend Fishing Report Update

The last couple days has produced a lot of Big Red Drum on light tackle off Oak Island NC.  The Shark fishing is still as good as it can get also on some of our half day fishing trips.  Finally today we filled the box with King Mackerel on live bait.  It looks like the fall fishing is getting ready to get even better (if that can happen) once this cold front moves through and lowers the water temp just a little.

Oak Island Fishing Charters Red Drum Action

This year has been the best Red Drum fall fishing ive seen in a while.  All the trips Sat, Sun, Mon and Today saw great action on the Red Drum.  The King Mackerel nearshore still have not made a strong showing but it should happen any day now.  We hope that day is tomorrow but first thing in the morning we are going to pull on these Red Drum again then go look for King Mackerel.  BTW Thursday the Wahoo better swim fast.

 

Oak Island Fishing Charters Red Drum Fishing

The last several days has been a roller coaster ride with the Red Drum fishing.  In the Ocean we have had no problem catching the Big over the slot Red Drum the last 4 days.  The backwater fishing has been a real hit or miss on the drum action but when you do find them its game on.  Here is a picture of a huge Drum caught in the backwater and it was a slow trip but had a big reward.

Oak Island Fishing Charters 2 week update

Once again Im way behind on the fishing reports but Ive been fishing everyday.  The charters have been  in the backwater catching Red Drum and Flounder with great results.  On the Nearshore trips we have been catching huge Sharks of Oak Island and lots of King Mackerel and big Spanish Mackerel off the East Side of Bald Head Island.  We also got this nice Sail Fish while looking at land and this proves that you never know what the next bite will be.  The offshore trips have been producing great catches of Wahoo, Blackfin Tuna and Grouper.  I will be fishing almost everyday the next several weeks so Ill try to be better at updating the report.
