Weather kept Offshore boats at the dock. A few Inshore boats ventured out and found good Red Drum fishing in the sound.

Saturday, July 21, 2018

Strong winds and pouring rain kept boats at the docks today.

Friday, July 20, 2018

The wind turned SE today and made for some rough seas both inshore and offshore. Inshore parties went out this morning clamming and took advantage of the only sunshine of the day. Other parties had fair catches of Bluefish and Spanish Mackerel. No one went this afternoon. Quite a few offshore boats ventured out and reported rough conditions that only got worse as the day progressed. The Dolphin bite was scattered. Wahoo are starting to make a much better showing and they provided a pretty good bite. A few King Mackerel were also in the mix. Two Sailfish were released. Stormy weather is predicted for the weekend with strong winds and a lot of rain. Let's hope it clears out soon!

A wonderful NE breeze cooled things off overnight and anglers went out to a beautiful sunrise this morning! Most of our fleet went out and managed to get charters on fish. Inshore groups stayed busy with Speckled Trout, Bluefish, and big Drum releases. Check out the happy faces of the lucky anglers! It was another scrappy day for offshore charters. Captains and mates really had to work for their catches and for most it paid off. Dolphin fishing was fair to good with mostly bailers being brought in. The Wahoo bite improved greatly today. A couple of King Mackerel were caught. Two Sailfish were released.

Several offshore boats headed out early to the Gulf Stream for a full day of fishing. They returned with good catches of Dolphin (gaffers and bailers) along with scattered Wahoo and Blackfin Tuna. Two Sailfish were released. Inshore anglers focused on Red Drum, catching Puppy Drum. A few Spanish Mackerel were caught as well. Overall fishing was slow for inshore anglers. Most boats are on the books for tomorrow, so check back to see what conditions prevail and whether or not the fish are biting!

Carolina blue skies and a cool NE breeze made for an excellent day to play outdoors. Whether it was at the beach or on the water fishing, it was impossible to beat today's weather! Inshore anglers returned with real good catches of Tailor Bluefish. Bluefish are excellent fried or bake to make fish cakes. Anglers who ventured offshore reported fair to good catches of Dolphin. Bottom fishing produced nice catches of Triggerfish and Grouper. One Sailfish was released. Fishing was a bit scrappy, but anglers managed to bring back some good fillets to grill, fry, or bake.

We had our entire fleet out today taking advantage of the weather and getting their charters on the fish. Inshore charters concentrated on Red Drum, both Keepers and citation releases. The Bluefish bite was good and kept anglers busy when not catching Drum. Offshore, the Billfish bite was on with one Blue Marlin and four Sailfish releases. Dolphin fishing was scrappy for some and better for others. The Blackfin Tuna bite was scattered.One boat fished near shore and caught Almaco Jack and Amberjack. Don't let your vacation slip by without a fishing excursion - give us a call at 800-676-4939 to book the charter of your choice.
