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

 

 

May 1st - August 31st  " SIGN UP is open "

 

It looks like we're going to have some decent weather for the rest of the week and through Mother’s Day Weekend; along with warm temperatures, not too bad of winds and only a slight chance of rain.

 

We now have "LIVE EELS" through Cobia Season!!!  A live eel is one of the best "Live Baits" you can have on your boat for Cobia if they see it they won't turn it down. Feel free to stop by the shop and we'll show you hands on how to use them.

  

 

 

Inshore / Nearshore:

I really feel like the rest of the week and this weekend some Cobia will be caught as it will finely be good enough weather to fish for them. I've already had some reports of a few being caught hook and line and a few being caught in nets. Barden’s Inlet at Cape Lookout and Beaufort Inlet will be the two best areas to fish.
 
We are still looking for the bait balls but haven't had any luck. I did hear of some schools showing up around Bouge Inlet yesterday so that’s a great sign. For the rest of the week I'll have one of the best Menhaden catchers out on the water scouting. So, if they arrive we'll know about it first.
 
As for bait, we do have Menhaden that we had shipped in from south of us and it is fresh caught. We also have Blue Crabs along with the Live Eels for bait. When bottom fishing for them you always want to take Chum along with you as we have plenty on hand.

 
We've had a push of anglers signing up for the "2nd Annual Cobia Challenge" last week as they're planning to fish this weekend. So, we might see our first fish hit the scales very soon.

The smaller Bluefish have shown up in good numbers along the beaches and in the inlet. I'm still hearing of some Chopper Blue Fish being caught but not as many as there was. They were here thick as fleas but the cold fronts have pushed them out. With anglers starting to Cobia fish the inlets with good-sized baits I've a good feeling they'll show back up like last year as we caught them through June during Cobia fishing.
 
I didn't see any of these fish with my eyes but a friend stopped by the shop yesterday that runs a marina on the beach telling me that he saw a catch of Spanish Mackerel that came in earlier this week. They were trolling around the inlet and the point. If that is true I expect to see more caught this weekend by trolling CLarkspoons around the inlet or along the beach.
 
Last weekend was so windy it was very hard to get outside the inlet to the reefs but a few boats made it. It was very hard fishing but the Gray Trout are still there in good numbers and good sizes. Fishing Stingsilvers or Jig Fish Lures dropped down are producing great results and color doesn't seem to matter that much. You also can pick up Grays in the inlet and around the railroad tracks.
 
We are still seeing Sea Mullets in the turning basin and outside the inlet in the shipping channel. Spec-Rigs tipped with bait shrimp is still the best bait for action.
 
Flounder are making their way in now to the inside waters as anglers have been catching a few around the inlets and bridges. I heard of one good report the other week before all the wind moved in on us around 330 reefs was producing some good size fish. Live Mud Minnows, 2oz Spro Bucktails tipped with 4” Berkley Gulp Shrimp will be good choices.
 
We ran a Redfish Charter this past Sunday in the wind around the Haystacks and Core Creek and picked up a few small fish on popping corks and Berkley Gulp with a few Speckled Trout mixed in.

 

Piers / Surf:

The Oceanana Pier is still seeing good numbers of Black Drum right along the Surf Line, along with a few Red Drum in the mix also. Most of the Drum action is coming using Bait Shrimp and Fresh Cut Mullet; which we do have in-stock.
 
Blue Fish are being caught off Gotcha-Plugs now and just yesterday I talked to a guy that has caught a Spanish or two plugging.  There're still Sea Mullets to be caught but not as hot and heavy as it was a few weeks ago.
 
I've heard of more Flounder starting to show up along the beach as anglers are catching them on Live Mud Minnows fished on Carolina Rigs. There're still some Chopper Blue fish around as a customer yesterday caught some down around the Fort Macon Park area on Cut Mullet fished on a Blue Fish Rig.
 
It might be a good ideal to have a bigger rod set up with a 2 to 3oz Bucktail as you might just see a Cobia swim by if you're fishing off the pier since I know there was one spotted last week off Bouge Inlet Pier.
 
There are lots of small Sheepshead being caught around the Fort Macon Rocks on Bait Shrimp and Fiddler Crabs. You can usually get some bigger fish if you move out on the rocks but be very careful, as you don’t want to slip off the rocks and get hurt. So use extra caution and make sure it is calm before you try to get on the rocks.

 

Offshore:
 
The last two days of fishing has been pretty good for the Offshore Charter Boats with Dolphin, a few Wahoo and Tuna being caught. What I'm hearing most of the action has been at the Big Rock down to the Swansboro Hole.
 
We just can't get a good weather break for the smaller boats as the rest of the week is going to be 3 to 5ft then building back up toward Saturday. I'm in high hopes we're going to start getting more into our summer time patterns without all these crazy fronts coming through like we've seen all spring.
 
We do have a good stock of winter caught "Ballyhoo" in-stock ready for action once the weather breaks. As for the bottom fish we're seeing the same thing with the wind making it hard to get out and fish.
 
Grouper Season is open but the wind is still keeping the bottom boats from fishing. We do have fresh caught "Cigar Minnows" in from Florida, Squid Wings and Spanish Sardines all in-stock ready for action for the bottom fishermen. I've heard the Trigger Fish bite has been pretty good along with B-liners when the big head boats have been making it out every day the winds lets them.
