The last couple of days the charters have got to experience the difference between bottom fishing and Grouper catching. We go out of the way to make sure you have the best chance to produce the targeted species. If you would like to learn how to catch grouper then this charter is for you even if you have your own boat.
Sorry for the delay but computer crashed and fishing everyday. Here it is, the fishing could not have been any better the last 5 or 6 days we have lived up to our reputation of targeting specific fish that you pay to fish for. Grouper fishing is our specialty when we bottom fish so that’s what you should catch the most of and the tract record is great. Lots of Big Grouper, Big Mahi with Blackbass and Amberjacks mixed in was the routine for the offshore trips. Nearshore the Spanish are around but the sharks are hungry and should hold steady for the summer pattern. In the Backwater the flounder are moving in but the Red Drum are showing there numbers better. Bottom line fishing has been great from the Backwater to Bluewater with Oak Island Fishing Charters.
Today could not have went any better. The ocean was nice the fish are big and they was hungry.these 2 15 year old girls caught all these Mahi by them self and the best part again we made it home before 3pm. Words cant describe the day period.
Today was an awesome fish catching day. We caught big gag groupers, Amberjacks, big bass and a pair of 25lb African Pompanos. The best part is we was back at the dock before 3 with the coolers full.
Today at Oak Island the weather threw a curve ball to area. All the cobia just vanished and the King Mackerel must have went with them today also. The big Sharks are around as Capt John had great luck on both trips with them today using live bait. On my afternoon trip we pushed off and made a very productive 3/4 trip about 25 miles catching all the Amberjacks the arms could take. Gulfstream or Grouper in the morning.
With all the wind and rain on Thursday our hopes of catching fish was brought down a notch on Friday. With windy conditions and dirty water it made the fishing tough but we kept hitting spots around Bald Head Island NC until it happened. Looks like we will be in the ocean for a few days to look for more kings and cobia.
The big Cobia are still around the Southport, Oak Island NC area. Live bait has been working best but a bucktail has got its share also. The last week has been like a broken record but the fish are hungry and the weather is perfect. Gulfstream, Grouper or Cobia tomorrow either way its a full day.
Today could not have went any better while fishing offshore Oak Island NC. Bait was easy at first light and within 1 hour we had the boats full limit of 6 cobia in the boat with the biggest weighing in at 46lbs. After that fire drill we went on the catch Big “keeper” Scamp Groupers that we targets specifically along with jumbo Sea Bass. Looks like sharking in the am and cobia for the afternoon.
What a weekend this has been. Starting Friday with hot Mahi and Cobia action offshore to nearshore shark and King Mackerel fishing because of the weather Sat offshore combined with Big Cobia’s in the boat Sunday. It does not get any better than it is right now. Lets go fishing.
The big Scamp Grouper wanted a ride back to Oak Island NC today and we were more than happy to give them a lift. We love targeting a catching Grouper because it way more challenging than just “bottom fishing” but that’s just what Capt John and myself enjoy doing. Today had all the conditions that could have produced a bad day but the Grouper did not take advantage of the dirty green water but having the right bait on the right rock is all it takes. Results was boats full limit of Grouper plus 2 30lb African Pompano’s along with the usual blackbass, grunts ect….
