"Today's Report" | Mac Marle'n | 08/28/03
 

Sorry I haven't reported lately, but we've been busy fishing every day under these beautiful weather conditions.  The fishing is good, so long as you can get to your target species.  Nearshore we're doing very good on 1-4 pound Spanish Mackerel at all area Artificial Reefs from 40-60 feet of water.  We're pulling #1 and #2 Silver Clark spoons on #1 planers.  The Kings and Mahi have moved offshore and if you can get to 80+ feet of water, you should be able to have luck.  The weather has certainly been nice enough to get just about anywhere.  There is plenty of bait on the beach and I'm still seeing the occasion King sky rocket thru the bait pods.  Check out this week's pics.

"TODAYS REPORT" | Mac Marle'n | 08/23/03
 

Capt. Roger and I went on a Spanish mackerel mission this afternoon.  We had steady action with better than average fish.  Most of the fish caught were in the 3-4 pound range.  A Gold clarkspoon behind a # 2 planer was the bait of choice, however silver was also effective.

"Stream Report" | Capt. Hook | 08/21/03
 

We ran out to the 100-400 and trolled for about an hour with no strikes. Then moved straight offshore to 1000-1500 feet of water looking for weed, birds, bait anything that looked fishy to no avail. We then ran to the Steeples and fished it Hard and had not even one strike. I decided to head to the Tower area to get something to tighten the line but in the middle of the run made a hard left and went to the Black Jack hole. We put out and had a big Wahoo skied the bait, ran the 100 yard dash and spit the hook. Then we put out again made a circle and the next one was not so lucky he ended up in the box. We saw a Sail out sunning, just lazing around on top of the water but he would'nt eat. A little later we hooked a Sail that got fouled in another line and he was behind the boat with his tail about a foot  out of the water going 900 miles an hour and when his tail caught traction he pulled all the hooks. Not a great report but not too shabby either!! Capt'n Stacy will be running the next couple of days so we will be reporting. Fall is just around the corner!!!!!

"Today's Report" | Carolina Contender | 08/19/03
 

Today I ran a 7 hr. trip aboard the Carolina Contender and fished the Horseshoe area.  The water was a dark green and looked decent, but not the typical bluish that is often seen this time of year.  We caught several decent sized Kings and a Mahi.  The action was very steady.

Captain Stacy had a pretty slow day only managing to pull out one Mahi, some Sharks and a Barracuda. The weather was not very cooperative and he fished the 12 mile ledges. We are going to hang in there it will get better!!

We've been Cuda and Spanish crazy here for the past week or so.  The majority of our charters are 3 and 5 hour trips, thus we have to stay within 10-15 miles of the beach- and Barracuda and Spanish are what are biting in that range.  For those occasions when we have 7 or 9 hour trips, the Kings and Mahi are biting offshore in the 25-35 mile range.  Most of the fish are in the 10-12 pound range but we are catching quite a few into the 20's as well.  The weather was great today and I look forward to the cool breezes that I think we'll be getting this week.  Actually loaded the well with Silver Mullets running the waterway this AM.  A sign that Fall is just around the corner.

"Last Few Days" | Capt. Hook | 08/17/03
 

We have had several fullday trips in the last few days along with a couple of shorter trips. The fish are biting well around the Tower. The kings are there along with Mahi, Barracuda, African Pompano, and Sailfish. There were 3 Sails released yesterday while I was in the Horeshoe area. We caught Kings 8 to 15 lbs fairly steady and then hit one 26.93 pounds. I heard there were sevral nice ones caught all around out there in 60 to 90 feet of water. The bait is still off Holden and easy to get!! Capt'n Stacy will be on the boat tomorrow for 2 half days so stay tuned!!

Once again the ocean was perfect, I just wish the fish would have gotten the memo.  Although things were slow we did manage to catch one of the largest black tip sharks I have ever seen.  In addition to the shark, the spanish mackerels kept us busy most of the afternoon.

We cut our stream trip back to a full day due to reports of "No Action There". We found lots of Dog Sharks at the 65 foot hole and moved on to the 24 and again, you guessed it, found Dog Sharks. I then moved to the 38 mile area and found a couple of Kings and all the Jacks! Lots of action today!! Bait is still holding off Holden Beach!! Back out on another full day tomorrow!!

Today Capt. Amy and I fished aboard the Mac Marl'n.  The weather was beautiful with seas in the 1-2 foot range.  The spanish mackerel were plentiful around the Barges.  And the Barracudas were chompin' at the bit. Hopefully the weather will hold for the weekend.

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.

"Schedule" | Capt. Hook | 08/12/03
 

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.
