"Today's Report" | Capt. Hook | 08/13/03
 

We had a full day offshore today and were not overwhelmed with action but had a pretty fair catch. We caught Kings, Sharks, and a Mahi. The Kings came from the Sharkhole and the Mahi came from the 24 mile ledge. We did not get a King stike at the 24. But on the Mahi our lady angler for the day saw them swim by the boat and told me she saw a fish and she was right!! Next thing a cow Mahi was 6 foot high off the transom. As this fight progressed the Bull hit a floating line jumpimg the line already hooked up  and breaking it.  NO PROBLEM!! I handed the hooked up pole to the gentlemen, took the pole with the broken string and he never missed a stoke!!

Yesterday Captain Roger and I guided a party to a day of live bait fishing around the Shark hole area.  Mysteriously, the Cobia made a strong showing with no warning.  We ended up with four Cobia and a kingfish.  The water color is shaping up and fishing is getting even better.

We will be out on a Full Day tomorrow and in the Gullf Stream on Thursday if the weather lets us. On my stream trip I am thinking about finding an area that looks productive around the 100-400 or Black Jack and live bait fishing. Will post results!!

Capt. Roger and I fished around the shark hole today.  The Cobias made a late season appearance.  While the king mackerel were scattered.  Live pogies were the key for the cobias while the kingfish were on dead cigar minnows like a fat kid on cake.  The weather is finally turning around, and the rest of the week is looking good.

Finally the weather is shaping up.  This past weekend captain Brant and I fished the Snead's Ferry King Mackerel tournament up in Morehead City amidst torrential down pours and heavy winds.  We ended up catching a 26.74 lb kingfish and won 9th place, but I assure you we worked for it.  Back at home the barracuda and shark fishing remains hot.  However, today the king mackerel made their first appearance in over 2 weeks.  We caught several fish around the shark hole and it looks like its only going to get better.  Also the cobia are making a come back as well.  Yesterday I hooked two including one that had a head about 2 feet across probably weighing in excess of 70 lbs.  Today I hooked one more but unfortunately have been unable to get one in the boat yet.  Fishing is heating up again.

The Spanish mackerel bite was on at the AR445 this afternoon. The key was a gold # 1 clarkspoons behind a # 2 planer.  There were also a couple cudas lerking around the bouys.

Yesterday morning I guided a crew on the high seas to fun day of non-stop catching.  After we netted pogies, we started the morning by catching blacknose sharks in the 20 to 55lb range behind the shrimp boats on freshly cut pogies.  After having our fill of these hard pulling sharks we headed offshore to the 10 mile boxcars and spent the next couple of hours doing battle with some agressive barracudas.  Light tackle sportfishing at its finest.  If you are a trophy collector now is the time to come fishing.  Both sharks and cudas are big fish with a ferocious look that make great mounts to go along with the stories.

"Fishing News" | Capt. Hook | 08/07/03
 

Boy have we been riding some big waves!! The South Southwest winds have had the swells kicked up a bit but we still managed to catch a few fish. We have been catching Kings, a few Mahi, and a big Spanish every once in a while. The Shark Hole has been my preference and is holding fish but a lot of them are small. We did manage to pull a pretty good one off of it today. Will be in the Sneads Ferry Tourney for he next couple of days!! I hope lady luck will shine down!!

Although the King Mackerel and Mahi are thinning out, we're moving into our late Summer Barracuda and Shark fisheries as scheduled.  I know some people may scoff at the thought of Cudas and Sharks, but pound for pound and for all out fighting ability, both are at the top of the list and within only a few miles of shore.  The big news today was our first encounters with numbers of Blacktip Sharks.  We caught some 15-20 Blacktip and Black Nose Sharks in the 30-75 pound range and lost one at boatside that had to go over 100 pounds.  Blacktip are fast, they jump like Marlin and they are actually good to eat.

Boy how that wind can change everything in no time.  The hard south west wind we have been experiencing for the past several days has set the kingfish bite on hold for the time being.  Well, at least the big kingfish bite.  However, this has given me an opportunity to shift focus to some of the other species hanging in our area.  The barracuda bite the past several days has been awesome to say the least.  Although they do not make good table fare, you will be hard pressed to find another gamefish that offers the kind of exciting angling opportunity this fish does.  From the acrabatic strike to the line sizzling runs, they are a fun alternative to the king mackerel fishing.   Here are some pictures from the past few trips.

The kings bite early  at the shark hole, however most of the fish were on the samll side.  As the day progressed the kings turned off and the shark bite was red hot.

Had a great trip today!! Fished the 12 mile ledges again and caught Kings, Mahi, Barracuda, and Cobia. It was an action filled day as the Cuda would have topped the 40lb mark and the Cobia, around 35 to 40 was foul hooked and took over 2 hours to get in!! The bait was again at Holden Beach Pier and easy to get!!

Ran two half day trips today and fished the 12 mile ledges on both trips. We caught Kings and Mahi and had pretty fair action. We lost a Bull Dolphin in the 30 pound range at the boat when he did a flip with a triple gainer and broke the wire. Oh well I guess thats one for the liars club!! We will be at it again tomorrow!! Bait seems to be holding at Holden Beach Pier!!

Today I fished near Christina's Ledge with live pogies on a 5 hour afternoon trip.  We had a lot of action but also had a lot of fish get off the hook.  That's why it's called fishing and not catching I guess.

Capt'n Stacy ran a pair of half days that yeilded a few Kings and some Amberjacks. He fished the 18 mile rock area and said the Kings are still a little slow to bite. Maybe they will turn back on soon. I will be out on the hunt Tomorrow and Saturday so stay tuned.

The seas have been a bit tough at 2-4 feet for the past few days, but the fish are biting.  We've been doing good with a mixed bag of King Mackerel, Mahi-Mahi, Barracuda, Shark and Amberjack.  We've been live bait fishing with Menhaden which are holding off of Holden Beach and fishing the 50-70 foot depth range.

Had a very slow morning only yeilding 2 dog Sharks. We worked hard and fished several places the fish have been such as the 12 mile, 65 foot hole, and the bardges but no luck. On the Afternoon trip we headed for the Shark Hole and found a few Kings. We had 4 keepers and a couple of throwbacks. The fish were from 6 to 12 pounds. At least they were there and willing to bite a little!! Bait was at Holden Beach Pier and easy to get. Captain Stacy will be on the boat tomorrow maybe the bite will be better!!

Today I fished near the Christina out to the York hole and back to the Shark hole.  The kingfish seemed to be on strike today as I was only able to come up with one 12 lber.  On the other hand the amberjack were chewing the bottom out of the boat.  We caught as many as our arms would allow before giving out.  A busy day on the water, but the question is where did the kingfish go.

We had a great day today!! We ran a full day trip and caught several nice fish. We picked up a King and a Mahi in the 20 - 25 pound range at the Shark Hole. After that it lived up to its name and the Dog Sharks took over. We did have a good fight with a Cuda before departing to the 24 mile hole. There we found Kings in abundance in the 10 - 12 pound range.  Bait was at the Holden Beach Pier and fairly easy to get!! We will be back at it in the morning!
