2nd Annual Cobia Challenge

April 1st – June 10th “SIGN-UP” is open!!!


 

 

We've already had a good number of anglers to sign up. Those who have signed up are ready to weigh fish when the Cobia arrives. Remember there is a “3-DAY” waiting period once you sign up before you can bring a fish to the scales. So don't wait and catch a fish then sign up as that fish will not count in the event. If you don’t live in town just call the shop and we can pre-sign you up over the phone so once you come to fish you'll be ready to weigh in fish.

 

2nd Annual Flounder Challenge

May1st – August 31st “SIGN-UP” is open!!!


 

Inshore / Nearshore:

We're getting real close to having some Cobia action. Last year some of the first fish were caught around the first of May so I'd say by the end of next week or by next weekend a few should start showing up around the Cape Lookout area and the Beaufort Inlet area.
 
I've talked to some other shop owners south of us and they're starting to see numbers of fish moving inshore along the beaches. That doesn't mean we'll have to wait until those fish make that trip up the beach to us. Most of the Cobia that move into our area will come in from offshore. I've already had good reports from boats going offshore coming across some large schools of Cobia just last week.
 
With the water along the beach continuing to warm up the Cobia will move right in. We do have “Fresh Caught Shad” in stock that we brought in from south of us. We've been looking for the shad to show up here and will have fresh local shad as soon as they show up.
 
We also have Peeler Crabs in stock along with chum so if anyone wants to be the first to try their luck this weekend; we have you covered on the bait and plenty of “Custom Cobia Rigs”. Last week we put together Cobia Combos spooled with 50lb Braid and we have plenty of Cobia Bucktails and other lures that are great for sight fishing.

Sea Mullet fishing still's strong around the inlet area back to the turning basin area. Spec-Rigs tipped with bait shrimp has been the key. It seems over the last two weeks we've seen some of the larger mullet coming through.
 
The Gray Trout have really started to move in with some over 3lbs being caught around 315 and the inlet on Stingsilvers. The railroad tracks are holding good numbers also.
 
I heard of a Spanish that was caught last week along the beach. It was the only one but that's a good sign they're getting ready to move in.
 
Bluefish are in the inlet and up around the Cape Lookout area in good numbers. Anglers now are starting to catch them trolling Clarkspoons and jigging them up off the bottom. Some anglers have been going up to Cape Lookout in the hook and having some luck with top water baits like Mirrolure Top Dogs as the Chopper Blues are cruising the shallows on the inside of the hook and along the beaches. Anglers are reporting catching 7 to 10lb Bluefish on a topwater which is very exciting fishing.
 
A  few keeper Flounder has been caught around the artificial reefs like 315,320 and 330 not huge numbers of fish but anglers have been picking up a few. There seems to be more Flounder being caught on the inside waters around the inlet and creek channels. Live Mud Minnows and 2oz Spro Bucktails tipped with 4” Berkley Gulp Shrimp would be good choices if you wanted to try to catch a Flounder.
 
Speckled Trout are hanging around the Haystacks and the Core Creek area. Most are being caught on Gulp baits but some anglers have had good luck on Live Mud Minnows. Some may think that the Specks aren't around but I talked to an angler yesterday that fishes the area and he told me they never left this winter. He has been catching trout all spring in the same spots as he was last fall. Not as many but the fish are still here.
 
Redfish are in the marsh areas starting to feed and in the creeks and along the docks.
 
The Sheepsheads are starting to feed around the docks, bridges and port area along with a few black drum. We do have some Live Fiddler Crabs in stock along with sand fleas for bait.

 

Pier / Surf:

This spring has been one of the best we've seen in years from the surf area. The Fort Macon Rock Jetty has been very good over the last few weeks. Last weekend anglers were catching tons of fish from the jetty. Chopper Bluefish from 7lbs to 13lbs are all up and down the beach to be caught along with good numbers of Black Drum and Red Drum. The Chopper’s have been feeding on Cut Mullet or Finger Mullet fished on Blue Fish Rigs the best. Some anglers were having luck casting big topwater plugs into the surf as the Chopper’s would come up and crush them.
 
We had customers last Saturday coming back into the shop that caught all the fish they wanted just in a few hours of non-stop fishing action. The Black Drum are feeding on bait shrimp fished on a bottom rig. The best action has been up around the Fort Macon Rocks for them but I've heard of drum being caught all along the beach and on the pier.
 
We've also been seeing some over and in the slot Red Drum that are being caught on mullet as anglers are trying their luck on Chopper Bluefish. Reports are still good size Sea Mullets and Puffer Fish being caught in the surf and off the pier using bait shrimp fished right along the bottom for best results. There's not many Pompano yet but the ones that are being caught are nice ones.

 

Offshore:

Last week we had some great reports of fish being caught. Also, last week some boats reported a "Yellow Fin" bite which we've not seen in years in this area. What we're hearing the Yellow Fin bite was up north of the Big Rock area. In the next few days it will tell if the Yellow Fin bite was just a one-day thing or if they're really here in good numbers.
 
A few boats went out yesterday being that was the first good weather day since last week to get offshore. Boats came in with Wahoo, Black Fin, Yellow Fin and with good numbers of Dolphin showing up.  The Wahoo, Black Fin and Dolphin are being caught along the break from the Big Rock down to the Swansboro Hole. Trolling Blue Water Candy Jags, Mini Jags, and Sea Witches rigged with Medium to Large Ballyhoo have been working great.
 
Next week don’t forget "Grouper Season" opens and we should see some great action as it has been closed for a while. We have Menhaden, Cigar Minnows and Sardines all in-stock ready for action along with "Custom Grouper Rigs". The best action for them is going to be around the 30 mile and out range on the break and ledges. If you want a charter to go, we're offering a Full Day Grouper Trip for $700.00 up to 3 anglers. Just call the shop to set up a trip.
