On the piers starting to catch some King mackerel, Spanish mackerel, flounder, whiting, red and black drum, bluefish, croakers, blowfish, sharks and stingrays.
In the waterways, bays, and river catching red and black drum, a few flounder, speckled trout, an occasional gray trout, whiting, croakers, pigfish, small black bass, a few blowfish, sharks, and stingrays.
Fishing is still a little slow but the menhaden are starting to show up. Bait showing up should make for some better fishing in the coming weeks. If anyone has any fishing pictures they would like to shares .. (Read More)
This has been the most unusual early fishing season I personally have experienced in over 16 years of professional fishing. This past weekend saw an explosion of near shore fishing, while inshore fishing with the exception of the river, has slooooooooooooowed way down. Winds have been consistently SW for a good period and have brought good fishing to the area. The SW winds are forecast to stay for a while. Bait fish are abundant and HOPEFULLY everything will soon be NORMAL! Water temps in the ocean are around 67.. (Read More)

BIG Spring Flounder
Fishing for: and more importantly; CATCHING BIG Flounder is by far one of my favorite types of angling due to what I term the “Recipe For Success”.
In successful Flounder Fishing, once you have obtained the knowledge (some call it “secrets” and speaking in terms of the What, Where, When, Why, How) combined with the on the water experience.. (Read More)
Hello everyone. We have been catching fish and having fun over the past few weeks. The inshore action for red drum, black drum, and a few flounder and trout has been great. The reds are biting gulp baits on 3/8 oz. jig heads and rigged weedless. Just work them slow and keep contact with the bottom. We have been using fresh shrimp, cut mullet, and live mud minnows as well for the reds and black. The flounder have been hitting the jigs and live minnow as well. The trout have been hitting jigs with jerk baits and paddle tail.. (Read More)
I had the pleasure of having anglers travel to North Carolina from Japan for 2 days of jigging and popping. Mr. Hara, Eto, Oda, Mizutani, and Tsuruta. The weatherman was not kind at all and we were only able to get out 1 day and even that was very rough NE winds 15 plus most of the day. The fishing was good once we arrived. We found a lot of small AJs and Almacos in the morning. We did catch a small African and then the sharks started bothering us in 200 feet... (Read More)
April is here; finally some warmer weather, better fishing and the list of fish species starts to really grow the month of April! Now I’ll tell you that there is some very good day’s weather wise in April around Wrightsville Beach, but the wind can really blow sometimes during April. With this said you need to pick your days of fishing and be ready to move your days around sometimes. Fishing during April can be very good around Wrightsville Beach; here are some of the species I..

The spring fishing season is here and it looks like this spring is shaping up to be a good one. There are lots of redfish around, a few speckled trout, whiting, and black drum. The flounder, bluefish, sheephead and other inshore speices are not far behind. I am really looking forward to warmer weather and the inshore fishing to improve over the next couple of weeks.
We have had big numbers of lower and and under-slot redfish around this winter. These fish grow fast and we should experience a good inshore redfish bite this spring and summer. Most of the.. (Read More)
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. If you are thinking of.. (Read More)
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)
