Tough day in the Gulf Stream.  Captain Roger and I, Captain Barrett, took the helm this morning of the Macmarle'n and guided a party from Virginia to the deep water.  We encountered 3-6 ft. seas and very few fish.  Fished the Blackjack hole and offshore in 480ft on a beautiful temp break, color change, weed line, bird flocks, and flying fish coveys.  Only smaller sized dolphin for most of the 10 or so boats out today including us. Conditions looked perfect but someone forgot to tell the fish they're supposed to bite when the conditions are right.  Ended the day inshore on some hard fighting amberjacks and king mackerel.  "This is why it is called fishing and not catching" - you just never know.  "If they don't bite today, they'll bite tomorrow, and if the don't bite tomorrow they'll bite the next day".  The Macmarle'n will be on inshore live bait king mackerel trips tomorrow.  Tune into the web cam around 12pm and 6pm. 

Top Secret Fishing Rigs has just introduced a new deadly dead bait kingfish rig that is a must if you plan on dead baiting for kings.  Available at the Ocean Isle Fishing Center.

"Todays Report" | Capt. Hook | 05/10/03
 

Set out for the 100\400 area at 6:00am and arrived to find green "ugly" water but  knew the fish had been biting in the dirty water. We put out and trolled for an hour or so with no results. We heard about a rip, weed line, and blue water offshore of the Black Jack Hole in 450 feet of water so we pulled in and ran to it. Sure enough it was picture perfect, 79 degree water, lots of flyers, weed, birds just not a lot of fish. We caught several nice dolphin in the 8 to 20 lb class but never saw a Tuna or Wahoo. The Kings were skying in about 90 feet water on the way home so I say "tis the season!!"

Killed them in the Gulf Stream and reminded myself of a lesson.  Lesson- just because the water is green and not "Gulf Stream" blue, doesn't mean the fish aren't there.  Case in point, I fished "King Green"- 72-73 degree water all day and we did just fine on all species.

Fished just inshore of the BlackJack hole on a rip with scattered weed and birds and had 5 Yellowfin, 1 Blackfin, 5 Dolphin and a Wahoo.  The seas were a bit tough at 3-6, but we managed and the fish bit.  Got some good video, check it out.

Had some pretty big seas today, a sloppy 4 foot sea and southwest wind. On the first trip we caught some Jacks at the Jungle and noticed the high concentration of bait was not there as was last Saturday. I heard it may have moved in around the 390\390 along with the Kings!! The second trip was spanish fishing right off Holden Beach and turned out pretty productive using Clark Spoons on #1 Planers.

Great King Mackerel action today.  We fished the afternoon at the Jungle where you can jig all the live Cigar Minnows you want and catch Kings from 8-12 pounds like they're going out of style.  The bait is really moving in and I expect the Kingfishing action to be awesome for several weeks if not months.  I'm excited, let's go!

An exceptional day of fishing and a good learning day.  We fished 27 miles out and anchored over an area of rocks and chummed and bottom fished to catch several King Mackerel and most surprisingly, 7 Genuine Red Snapper from 8-12 pounds.  I haven't seen too many Genuine Reds in a long time, and this was a welcome surprise.  A great day on the water.  Tomorrow the Carolina Contender is fishing the Frantic Atlantic.

The weather started out questionable this AM but ended up nice as winds shifted from the N to SW and laid down.  We fished an area of ledges and rocks 25 miles out and caught a couple of King Mackerel and several nice Grouper in the 10 pound range.

Had a beautiful day in the stream yesterday but not alot of fish in the 100\400 area. We did manage to pull out a decent wahoo and some kings. The dock talk was that the bite was hot offshore of Winyah!!

The King Mackerel are here.  They're biting on the beach off Southport, at the 390/390, Jungle all the way to offshore in 150 feet.  The Pogys are on the beach off Holden and Long Beach. 

The Yellowfin bite continues sporadic, but they are biting like mad if you get the right spot.  Big Mahi are also starting to show up. 

On the beach, the Spanish Mackerel are biting.

MacMarle'n fished the 390/390 area today and caught several King Mackerel in the 10-15 pound range.  Great sign as the Kings are starting to move inshore and the action should only continue to get better.

"Weekend forecast/report" | Mac Marle'n | 04/30/03
 

Fishing is lighting up in all sectors.  The MacMarle'n has been in repair for a couple of days, but she'll be back to work starting on Thursday.  In the Gulf Stream the Yellowfin Tuna bite has been sporadic, but if you hit the right spot, you'll find great action from fish ranging 35-60 pounds.  The best reports I've heard thus far have come from the BlackJack to Steeples area.  There are also quite a few Dolphin and Wahoo mixed in with the Tuna.  Just inshore, the King Mackerel fishing is hot and heavy.  Huge schools of Kings in the 6-12 pound range are holding to the area SW of Frying Pan Tower as well south of Ocean Isle in the vecinity of the Twin City wrecks.  Nearer to shore, the Spanish Mackerel are just starting to show up on the beach and the Bluefish are thick on the nearshore artificial reefs.  The Sea Bass have been biting great within 40-60 feet of wate as well, and rumor has it that there are Pogys on the beach up towards Long Beach and Southport.  Inshore, the Flounder are biting at Tubbs Inlet and Cherry Grove and there are some big Trout being caught at the Sunset bridge.

Good Luck this weekend.  Tune into the web came 6am-7am to watch the boats leave and then 12pm-1pm and then 5pm-6:30pm for the final off-loading.

Or you can just stop in and say hello.

Well, I'm not full of cheery news.  The "MacMarle'n" has been down for a couple of days with mechanical issues and the weather stinks.  I don't think I'll have the boat back up and running til mid week, but Capt. David on the "Capt. Hook" will be fishing on Monday in the Stream, so tune into the web at around 6pm to see his catch.

"Today's PM Report" | Mac Marle'n | 04/22/03
 

A beautiful afternoon.  The Bonito bite had shut off in the AM so I decided to catch the season's first King Mackerel.  We slow trolled live and dead Cigar Minnows at the Little River Offshore reef, but only found Sharks, which of course provided a good pull- but the Kings were not yet to be found.  We then switched to bottom fishing and caught some nice Sea Bass and Flounder up to 4 1/2 pounds- a nice surprise.

Tomorrow we will be fishing 1/2 days in the AM on the MM and CC- check web cam at noonish- weather may have us fishing in the afternoon though, so stay tuned.

"Today's AM Report" | Carolina Contender | 04/22/03
 

Caught a couple Atlantic Bonito in the early AM between AR 485 and Sherman reef before switching over to Sea Bass and catching nice 1-2 pounders as hard as we could go.  Started rough, but ended pretty.
