Fall is arguably the best time of year to be fishing the backwaters and the nearshore ocean waters of the Lower Cape Fear area. With water temps beginning to drop, there will be bait moving in huge numbers. We have already began to see schools of mullets ranging from just 50 to 100 inshore to a couple thousand along the immediate coast which should mean the fishing should be firing off soon. This fall fishing only lasts a few months so dont' let the opportunity slip and miss out on some great fishing opportunities.
Big Bull Redfish will be starting.. (Read More)
I had Frank, John, Brian, Matt and Quinten for a gulf stream trip. The weather and ride out was beautiful and we started in around 120 feet looking for some scamps but no current and only a couple shorts. Started running off shore and found a current line with some life and decided to troll. It didn't take long when the short rigger started screaming and Quinten landed a nice 22 lb wahoo. We had great action on decent mahi gaffers for a couple hours. Then we moved to some ledges to start jigging and fishing with bait. The.. (Read More)
Windy and turbulent seas with rain showers mixed in for variety are the order of this weekend and possibly a little beyond. Prior to the storm we were catching a variety of fishes. It may take a week or two for things to calm down. Current water temps are ranging from the high 60’s to the low 70’s.
INSHORE: Red drum, black drum and a few smaller flounder have been biting. Best baits have been live bait if you can find it, or fresh cut bait. For me the best tide has been the falling.
NEAR SHORE: Bluefish, small to.. (Read More)

Turkey season is still open in the Cape Fear Region of North Carolina yesterday Capt.Mike had an exciting day of turkey hunting with David Franklin.
Morning started out in the blind before first light,with 3 birds gobbling shortly after sunrise,made number of calls with little response back,then it was just a waiting game we knew the birds were visiting the field on a regular basis.
I was so sleepy,it was all I could do to stay awake,when David nudge me saying turkey coming into the decoys,game on the.. (Read More)
Inshore we have been catching lots of red drum. Casting around the grass banks and oyster beds has been producing the best action. We can use live bait or lures, depending on your skill level. The trout are showing up, we have been catching them on jigs, mirro-lure, and live mullet. The flounder bit is still going on, live mullet on a carolina rig has been the deal. Fall fishing is in full swing. Now is the time to plan you Oct. and Nov. fishing trips. Give me a call at 910-264-1807.

Fall fishing is here, still catching some really nice flounder, speckled trout, grey trout, and red fish. Right off shore we are still catching some nice spanish mackerel. The near by reefs are also producing good size flounder, trout and sharks. The water temp is down and the fishing is getting better every day. To get in on the fall action give me a call!

The fishing is still a little up and down but it is getting much better. This past week the Flounder have become much more consistent, producing about 4 or 5 per trip.

wrightsville beach fishing charters Captain mike 910-619-8509 The last few days of fishing have been great, lots of reds moving up on the flats and oyster bars to sun and feed.Soft plastics, jerkbaits and swimbaits have been my choice .There is lots of winter moss still left on the bottom which makes anything heavy impossible to fish.The rain has set in today but the trout have started moving to the creek mouths which makes them easy to see and easy to catch.With the weather breaking this weekend, it should be the time to hit the water!
With the fluctuations in the weather lately, the fishing has been just as unpredictable. We have had several days with outstanding numbers of redfish and have had some slow days also. With the warm weather creeping back the redfish bite will become more consistent. The flounder and trout will also be showing up in good numbers soon. Several flounder have already been caught and we had a 14” speckled trout last week! The redfish have been schooled up in large schools throughout the day but as the water heats up they will start to.. (Read More)

Capt Grady had a good weekend of Fishing. This was a half day trip not far off the beach and this group had a blast. Plenty of sharks and Spanish Mackerel to catch. Grady also reported the king mackerel, dolphin and sailfish bite is still pretty good. They fished off shore Sunday and did pretty good on the school kings and caught one sail and a few dolphin.

Awww….the sound of multiple reels screaming as each rod doubles over when your bait spread is suddenly ambushed by a school of Yellowfin Tuna……or how bout a monster Wahoo skyrocketing on an outrigger bait and burning 300yds of line off of a 50 wide……better yet, the beautiful yellow, green, and blue colors of a Mahi-Mahi as it jumps to free itself from the end of your line….. That’s Holden Beach Gulf Stream Fishing at its finest aboard the Gamefisher III, a tournament rigged Ocean Master 31.

Well it is time to start talking about winter time striper trips. As most of you know, the striper fishing out of Oregon Inlet over the past two winters has not been up to par. There were some fish around, but nothing like it used to be. The main body of fish have been staying off Virginia Beach due to the unusually warm winters we have had. With this in mind we have decided to have a boat.. (Read More)
