Mid May Report

The cobia have showed up just not in large numbers compared for the amount of fishermen targeting them.  If you plan on booking a cobia trip remember it takes time and patience and some days you still get zero.  That's how this weekend turned out for us on cobia.  One day the weather forecast did turn out correct and after trying for cobia the ocean was calm enough to try a little flounder jigging.  Had good luck just mainly smaller fish, hoping that is a good sign to come.

Another Great Day!

Had a good trip this weekend.  Caught a few more big chopper bluefish and some nice sharks.  Our biggest was 6 1/2 feet, around 140lbs.  Although we didn't catch a cobia there were a few caught this weekend.  Normally they show up about the 2nd week in May but this warm spring they are already here.

Spring Break

The fishing has been great this spring.  Lots of bluefish and sharks around the inlets along with the big chopper blues showing good numbers.  A few flounder are starting to show up on the reefs.  Red fish are moving back into the marshes.  The cobia should start showing up in the next couple weeks, still have openings on a few weekend in May.

November Fishing

It has been a good fall.  Plenty of trout, drum, flounder, and albacore.  My mom never fishes and she went out and caught her first inshore slam, go MOM!  Also, my 3 year old caught his first striper.

Fall Fishing

The fishing this fall has been great.  Plenty of speckled trout and red drum around the marshes and rock jetties.  Artificial baits like gulp and vudu shrimp have been working good along with live shrimp.  The albacore bite has been strong along the beach and when the wind is calm the king mackerel bite has been awesome.

The Start to Fall!

Fall is starting to arrive and the action is getting good.  The albacore, spanish mackerel, bluefish, and king mackerel are starting to move along the beach.  Red drum and trout are also starting to school in the marshes.  Hoping Hurricane Matthew won't hurt the fishing for to long.

Mid September

Other then working around a tropical storm the weather and fishing has been good.  Plenty of spanish mackerel and bluefish around the inlets and beaches.  They are eating on the millions of glass minnows, so make sure you are using small baits.  The bottom fishing has been staying steady and the flounder bite has produced nice big flounder.  Also, the shrimp are in good numbers around the marshes making the red drum bite pretty good.  Its starting to shape up and looking forward to a great fall season.

Mid August

We finally had a few days of pretty weather and we took advantage of it.  Had some pretty flounder on the reefs, grouper and big amberjacks on the ledges and plenty sharks.  In closer the spanish mackerel are being caught off and on but can usually find the bluefish on high tide.  Inside I have been catching some bonnet head sharks in the deep holes and lots of small redfish in the marshes.  I am now heading back to teaching school, its been a quick but good summer.  I will still be fishing on the weekends so if your in town give me a call.

1st week of August

Fishing has been staying steady.  Picking up a lot of bluefish by casting jigs.  The spanish mackerel troll has had a few slow days but a couple good days mixed in.  The reefs are still producing a mixed bag of fish and picking up a couple flounder inside around the port.

Hot, Hot, HOT!!!!

The weather has been very hot lately but getting out early is still producing some fish.  Been catching a few flounder around the port wall and some in the creeks.  We have also been catching a lot of bluefish and a couple spanish mackerel on the shoals when the tide is high.  When the wind isn't blowing we have been catching spanish and small king mackerel along the beaches and on the reefs.  We are also still catching a few flounders on the reefs.  Deeper out is also producing some keeper grouper and lots of amberjacks.

Mid July

We have had a some weather the last couple weeks.  HOT and WINDY!!!  Although it has been hot we are still catching fish when the wind isn't blowing 20mph.  There are spanish macs along the beaches, a few keeper flounder and reds in the marshes, a few sharks in the deep holes.   We made an offshore trip out the other day and had some grouper, amberjacks and are "endangered" red snapper.  Here is one that was 29 1/2 inches we had to through back, breaks my heart.

End of June

Fishing been good!  Have had plenty of spanish mackerel on the troll and all of the sharks you can handle behind the shrimp trawls.  On average the sharks have been ranging from 5-7 feet long.  You get a good workout on spin tackle.  Inshore there have been a few reds and flounder caught, expect a little work for these fish.

Great day of Catching!

Had one of my regulars, Will and his brother-in-law Jim.  We started out catching sharks behind the shrimp trawls.  They were stacked behind them feeding on the by catch.  You could see sharks ranging from 4ft to 8ft.  We had couple over the 7ft mark and pushing 200lbs.  After the guys got tired catching them we caught a few flounder on one of the reefs.  Then we headed a little deeper and got some amberjacks and a bonus grouper.  Over all it was a great day of catching.  Check out this video of Jim catching a 200lb shark.

June 10th; after second Tropical Storm for the Year!

The fishing started out a little slow this week after our second tropical storm of the year passed through.  Its pretty typical when we get a big swell and a lot of rain.  The inshore waters get dirty and the ocean takes a couple days to calm down.  By the end of the week the weather cleared and the fish started biting again.  We had a lot of bluefish and couple spanish macs trolling inside the inlet one day, a few flounder in the creeks another, spanish macs and bluefish in the ocean one trip and a trip full of sharks behind shrimp trawls.  So overall its all doing well now.  Come on down and catch some fish!

Beginning of June

Between tropical storms the fishing has been great!  Getting a good mix of spanish mackerel and bluefish along the beaches and around the inlets.  Cobia are still being picked up most days by sight fishing and bottom fishing.  I have had good luck flounder fishing on the reefs with a good percentage of keepers.  Inshore the flounder has been good but not as high of numbers of keepers.  Overall its a good time to fish!

Mid May Cobia!

So the rush is here, the Cobia showed up this week!  Cobia fishing was good during the week, the picture is from Capt. Chris with a slob they caught last week.  For this weekend there was plenty of bait and boats with a few cobia being caught.  Every bait ball had 20-30 boats on it so we anchored up and bottomed fish.  Had plenty of rays and sharks, but no cobia for us this weekend.  It makes it hard when there are a couple hundred boats doing the same thing.  If you aren't into the cobia there are plenty of spanish macs and bluefish around the inlets, and the flounder are still on the reefs.

The season is on its way!

Fishing season is quickly approaching.  Its time to start booking trips.  In mid April we should start seeing the flounder bite on the reefs, blue fish and red drum start moving back into the inside waters and grey trout and sea mullet running the beaches.  By mid May everything has busted out; cobia, grouper, ambejacks, flounder, spanish mackerel, sharks, bluefish, red drum and more.  If looking to cobia fish, book your trip before June 20th, the season closes the year.

Fall Fishing Inshore Slam

The fall fishing is still happening.  With temperatures staying mild the fishing is still hot.  In the ocean, lots of albacore on the beach and a few king mackerel are still hanging around the reefs. Inshore the trout bite is hot, but most fish are just under the 14" legal size limit.  There are also some red drum and a few flounder mixed in on the trout catch.
