"Today's Report" | Carolina Contender | 05/02/03
 

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.

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.

"Today's Report" | Mac Marle'n | 04/21/03
 

Fished 2 half day trips today with good success.  The morning was beautiful as we trolled the AR 485 off LR to catch several Atlantic Bonito-we hooked up to one mystery fish that screemed off 200 yards of line before slowing down.  We worked the fish for 15 minutes before finally getting it to leader, then fought it on the 20# leader for 5 mins before it finally go caught around the end of Capt. Roger's glove and broke the swivel- mystery fish??? 

In the afternoon the Bonito had quit biting so we went off 12 miles and caught a nice batch of Sea Bass to keep everyone busy.

Tomorrow the Carolina Contender and MacMarle'n both have 1/2 day trips in the AM returning at noon and the MacMarle'n with again depart at 12:30pm and return at 5:30pm- Tune into the web cam for live footage of dockside action.

It was a rough day and we were scheduled to fish the Gulf Stream but had to stay nearshore.  We opted to troll for Atlantic Bonito and caught a few Bonito and Bluefish while trolling around the Jim Caudle reef.  The bite was certainly not hot, but it is obvious the fish are there and will be biting soon.

Had a good day in the Stream, bringing back 2 Yellowfin tuna in the 50# class and 4 Mahi Mahi in the 5-15 pound class.  The seas were beautiful and fishing was decent.  We fished a 4 degree temperature break at the Steeples and there was a lot of bait.  Very evident there were a lot of fish there, but not biting very good.  The moon likely has them with lock jaw.

Beatiful day on the water.  In the AM we started off hot catching several Atlantic Bonito right off the bat while fishing the 390/390 area.  The action slowed and we went offshore for a few Sea Bass before coming in and making one last stab at the Bonito.  It was very obvious the fish were there, they were not too willing to cooperate however.

In the PM we had a short 3 hour trip and trolled 3-4 miles out of Shallotte Inlet and caught a Bonito and a few Sea Bass and Bluefish.  The water is clearing nearshore, and the Bonito should be moving in closer. 

Tomorrow its to the Gulf Stream.  Tune into the web cam 6pm-7pm for a live view of the day's catch.

The weather has straightened out for fishermen to get offshore to the Gulf Stream.  Mixed catch reports of Yellowfin Tuna and Wahoo.  The majority of the catches were made toward the BlackJack Hole and Steeples.

"Today's report" | Mac Marle'n | 04/12/03
 

Who say's you have to go to the Gulf Stream to have great fishing action in April?  Today I fished a group from Ohio on a 7 hour trip aboard the "MacMarle'n".  We started with a nice catch of Sea Bass and Gray Snapper while fishing in the 15 mile range.  On the way back inshore, I ran across Capt. Buster Gillis on the "Sea Hawk" who informed me he was into the Atlantic Bonito.  That was all I needed to hear as we deployed a spread of Clark Spoons on Planers and began hunting.  Within minutes it was 3 and 4 at a time for the next hour.  At one point I put the boat in neutral as we dropped Stingsilvers down and jigged with 12# tackle to catch the very tasty and hard fighting Atlantic Bonito.  We fished just offshore of the 390/390 and caught the fish by either trolling #2 Silver Clark spoons on #1 or #2 planers or by casting/jigging 1 1/4 oz. Pink/white or Green/white Stingsilvers.  If you're looking for a great time fishing but don't want to go all the way to the Gulf Stream, you've got to give this a shot.  The season will last thru April.  Call us at the new Ocean Isle Fishing Center- (910) 575-FISH ..

"Weather Breaking for Fishing Action" | Mac Marle'n | 04/11/03
 

The weather is finally clearing out.  It seemed like it will never quit raining, but finally the skies have cleared and its time to get back to business.  Speaking of business, the Fishing Center is ready to open on Wednesday.  So it looks like the fishing season is finally ready to begin.  Stay tuned to future reports.

It was another beautiful day.  The Bonito were out in full force but have proven very difficult to get to bite as they are boat shy and finicky.  After chasing them around for a while we went for the guarantee and caught a bucket full of 10-15 inch Sea Bass for the dinner table.

Today was another beautiful day.  I took a father and son on a nearshore 1/2 day trip and we found lots of Atlantic Bonito and Little Tunny holding around the Sherman and the 410/510.  We'll back at them tomorrow- stay tuned.
