"Today's Report" | Carolina Contender | 07/28/03
 

What can I say but that we've been so busy fishing and catching fish that I haven't been able to keep up the fishing report page like I'd like to.  Incredible King Mackerel fishing has been taking place for the past week as we've been doing very well on fish in the 12-20 pound range while fishing spots such as the Jungle, 410/510, and 65 foot hole-- Over the weekend I carried a party to fish the "King of the Cape" King Mackerel tournament and we caught a 31 pounder that finished us 6th place overall- not bad.  The weather has been pretty good with some days great and some OK, but mostly average for Summer conditions with seas ranging 2-5 feet.  I still have a few tournaments left available for charter this August and September, so give us a call if you want to learn to fish like the pros!

We fished a couple of days last week and did real well on the Kings. They were nice fish in the 15-20 lb range and biting rather aggressively in 60 to 70 feet of water. The live bait has been a little tricky!! It is very scattered and mixed in size. If the weather levels out the bait situation might also!! Hope to be back out Tuesday!!

Awesome day of fishing today for everyone!  As a tropical storm bears down on us the fish continue to chew.  Reports of great king mackerel fishing up down the coast today were common.  I found pogies this morning off Holden Beach and then headed to the 410/510 for the start of our fun.  We were attacked by a school of Cobia first and managed this one 35 lber.  Then we went to king mackerel slaying and ended up with several fish including one 25 lber.  The word tournament hit the air today as boats including the Carolina Contender prepare for the King of the Capes kingfish tournament and as such the weather is predicted to go bad and most likely the fish will quit biting.  At least that is the way it seems to always happen.  Hopefully this time will be the exception.  Kingfishing can't get much better than it is right now.

Before this wind started blowing yesterday the fish had really begun to turn it on.  My last trip was day before yesterday and we had a great catch of big kings and spanish on a 5 hour morning trip.  I went to the 390/390 and had 3 kings 2 of which were pushing 25lbs and 3 spanish between 3 and 6lbs.  I used dead cigar minnows and live mullet for bait.  Several other boats that were in the area also had good catches of big kingfish.  Hopefully this hard southwest wind won't stop the great bite we have been experiencing for the past couple weeks.

What a day!  Left out of Shallotte inlet this morning around 7am and were greeted with a school of fall silver mullets running the beach and flat calm seas.  After loading up on both mullets and pogies we ran offshore to the York 24 mile hole and proceeded to blister the fish all day.  After catching 8 large amberjacks 6 quality kingfish including one 25lber and jumping off one 30 lb Mahi we had had enough and headed back to hill.  This fish are here it is just a matter of how the weather makes the fish react.

I took over the helm this afternoon from Capt. Brant and guided a crew from Chapel Hill to an excellent live bait fishing adventure.  We fished just inshore of the Shark Hole and had 2 nice kings and 4 dolphin including one release.  Unfortunately we kept tradition going by having a story for the one that got away.  We were able to successfully bring a kingfish in the low 30's right to boatside before he opened his mouth, shook his head and sent the hooks flying.  Oh well, we got to see her and we would have cut her loose anyways.

Capt. "cool daddy" Stan had a great day of flounder fishing in the backwaters today.  Small pogies were the hot bait today used on the drift and at anchor.  Ended up with 4 keepers with 2 around 3lbs each.  Check out the smile on this little guy's face.  Way to go!

Another excellent day of fishing, with calm seas offshore and lots of fish.  We started this morning catching pogies and then running to the Horseshoe.  Had a dolphin come through the spread and take all five baits with no hookup.  We then moved to the tower were the bite was hot.  Had Cudas, Shark, Pompano, and Kings.  Hightlight of the day was a 33.70 pound King.  Be back at it tommorrow with two half day trips.

Burned the Kings up this morning at the Shark Hole- had 8 Kings between 12 and 20 pounds while fishing from 9am-11am.  Also had a nice Mahi at 20 pounds.  Menhaden were in the mouth of Shallotte Inlet and the seas were perfect.   A nice morning of fishing.

We fished today at the Horseshoe, with a mixed bag of Dolphin, Kings, and Cudas.  Highlight of the day was a Sailfish release, the first for the Intimidator.  Will be back at it again tommorrow.

A great day to be on the water.  Found plenty of veteran size pogies right at Shallotte inlet this morning then headed offshore to the 17 mile rock area.  There was not much holding in the area but we did manage to capture a stud king mackerel weighing around 25 lbs.  Good to know I can still catch one.  After that, we moved to a nearby wreck and battled amberjacks until my charter's arms could not move on their own.  Just as we were about to leave Mr. Cobia showed up and we were able to land a nice 20 lber.  Plenty of fun and action as usual live bait fishing on the Carolina Contender.

Had an all day trip yesterday and traveled the high seas all the way to 38 miles out and had little luck. We caught one King early at the Jungle and the rest of the day only produced  one Barracuda and a few Dog Sharks.  Today we fished the Lighthouse Rocks and caught Kings and several 4 to 5 pound Spanish along with the multitude of Sharks!!. That was a welcome improvement. Bait has been a little tricky, yesterday we gave up on pogies and jigged our bait, today we caught it on the OIB side of Lockwood Folly Inlet. "KINGSIZED" MULLET ARE SHOWING UP HERE AND THERE BEWARE!! Till next time!!

Today I fished a couple 7 hour trips in 15 to 25 mile range.  The kingfish didn't cooperate too good with only a few bites in the morning, but ended up doing alright on some good bottom fish and the amberjack provided some great battles.  On the afternoon trip, we hooked and fought for close to an hour on heavy tackle what I believe to be an enormous jack.  Unfortunately, the line finally broke as darkness was approaching.  The one that got away!  The big story of the day though was the sudden appearance of fall!  That's right, the silver mullet's were running yesterday morning right on the beach just outside of Shallotte inlet.  October is coming!

Boy, We have had some rough weather here lately!! I have not been on the water many times in the last week as my Contender is in for some TLC. I ran a couple of trips on the "Red Rider" which is my 2500 Hydra Sport which produced a few kings and a nice dolphin from the 7 mile boxcar area!! The Hydra Sport is now FOR SALE see boats for sale on the home page!!

Fished today at 390/390, Cristina's Ledge, and Boxcars.  Caught a few Spanish Macks but no Kings.  Fish didn't seem to want to cooperate.  Hopefully they'll bite better tommorrow.
