Things have been busy and going well at Oak Island Fishing Charters. The offshore fishing trips have been producing Mahi, Grouper and lots of Trigger Fish. All our nearshore trips have kept the rod bent fighting big sharks and catching a few Spanish Mackerel. The Spanish Mackerel should be showing up in better numbers anytime also. Flounder and Red Drum is the way to go in the backwater half day trips. Heading offshore next several days again so standby.
Its that time of year and fishing is in full swing again now that all the dirty water has moved on from the storm last week. In the Gulfstream we are catching lots of Big Scamp Grouper, Triggerfish and Vermilion Snapper. We target grouper and catch a lot of them because we have put in the extra time in the past commercial fishing for them. You can have all the experience in the world but without the right places to catch just Grouper you will spend your whole day catching Black Seabass with other bottom fish and accidentally catch a grouper here and there (Dont get me wrong this is a lot of fun also). Thats not how we fish, you catch Grouper and accidentally catch other fish with us. In the backwater the flounder bite has picked up and should be right on time for the June run. On our nearshore half day trips Big Sharks, Spanish Mackerel and some Cobia have been keeping the rods bent. Its time to put some fish in the boat so join us because Oak Island has the best fishery around.
Finally it looks like the fishing and the weather has figured out what time of year it is at Oak Island NC. In the backwater Red Drum, Black Drum have been the best bet and any day the flounder will show up. On the Nearshore trips it looks like our summer pattern is starting early with great catches of Blue Fish, Spanish Mackerel and Big Sharks. Grouper fishing should be called Grouper catching with us because we target Grouper specifically and the results are rewarding.
