I had a 4 hour 3 person trip today for Miss Judy Charters. Conditions
were much better today than yesterday. We departed Miss Judys Dock at
6:30 am and had to fish through over 25 large ladyfish to get a few trout
going. We missed a few Trout, kept enough for 1 meal. Morgan caught a
fair size bonnethead that they kept as well.We did pretty good today considering
we are on a full moon and had 1 adult and 2 children.
I had a 4 hour 4 person trip today for Miss Judy Charters. We struggled
to get any kind of bite going. Wind was out of the northeast at 20 knots
and the air temperature dropped to low 50's. Was unable to fish Wassaw
sound area at all.Besides a cold front that passed, we are also on the
cusp of a full moon.
I had a 6 hour 2 person trip today with Jen and his Sarah. These 2 ladys
could really fish. Started off at 8am with a 10 knot southeast breeze.
We fished the last hour and 1/2 of the outgoing tide, then we fished the
incoming, almost all 6 hours, but decided to come in about 30 minutes
due to storms forming around us. Had a lot of action with trout and sharks
during the outgoing and trout and alot of ladyfish and blue fish during
the incoming . We kept 16 quality speckled seatrout and 1 bonnethead shark.
All in all a good day of fishing with 2 talented anglers.
I had a 6 hour 2 person trip today with Kevin and his Dad. Water temp
was in the low 70's and the wind held off until around 11am. However prior
to that we had caught a lot of quality fish. We released 3 bonnethead
sharks, several ladyfish, several bluefish and kept 11 nice speckled sea
trout, the largerst was approximately 17.5 inches. A great day fishing
with Kevin and his father.
I had a 6 hour 2 person trip today with Russel and his wife Tina. We fished
very hard but didn't do as well as we did yesterday. Caught some bonnethead
sharks, speckled seatrout, whiting and about 16 ladyfish. The bait was
unable to get past the ladyfish. These fish were all caught in Wassaw
Sound on live and dead shrimp. Water temp was in the low 70's.
wind blew hard out of the west southwest today and was against the tide.
This made for muddy waters and tuff fishing. Both were good anglers, but
we just didn't get into the trout today. Also today as we were crossing
Wassaw sound, we were greeted by a pod of dophins. It is illegal to pet
or feed wild dolphins, but these came up to the boat and allowed us to
take some pictures.
I had a 6 hour 2 person trip today with John and his son Luke. I had fished
with John in November and knew he was a good angler. However his son Luke
outfished him today. We caught a number of seatrout, bonnethead sharks,
ladyfish, bluefish and Luke caught a nice slot sized redfish. We
left the marina around 6:15 am and the water was clear to stained most
of the day. Water temp stayed around 70- 71 degrees. The wind picked up
near the end of the trip. They fished very hard and kept some for a meal.
I had a great time fishing with this father and son and hope to do so
I had a 4 hour 4 person trip today for Miss Judy. Water temps made it
up into the 70's. We departed her dock at 9:30 am, pretty late, but we
still did ok. They lost a couple big bonnethead sharks at the boat and
Lee caught a very nice 21 inch speckled seatrout. We caught bluefish,
bonnethead sharks, speckled seatrout and some rather large ladyfish. Also
missed a few fish. All in all a pretty good day for 4 hours.
I had a 6 hour 2 person trip today with Crystal and Jay. They were down
here from Tennessee and wanted to do some inshore fishing. Both were excellent
anglers and didn't miss very many bites. Water temp started around 68
degrees but did creep on up to 70 before the end of the trip. Water clarity
was stained at most drops but we did find some clear water. All fish caught
were on live shrimp.
We caught some speckled seatrout, blue fish, bonnethead sharks, lost some
atlantic sharpnose sharks and caught a few ladyfish. We only got pictures
of the Bonnetheads. I had a great time fishing with both of these anglers.
They were very accurate with their casts and learned how to keep a tight
line when the wind and tide was opposite.
I had a 6 hour 4 person trip today and again the wind blew like crazy!
This is one of the strangest springs that I can remember. We started out
later than planned, but we did very well considering we were on the cusp
of a gale warning. Water temps have climbed up to the low 70's which is
a good thing. I had Troy, Dawn and two small boys, Dylan and Jackson.
These folks were from Idaho and the boys wanted to catch a shark. Since
it was blowing straight out of the NE at a steady 15 knots, I wasn't sure
if I was going to be able to get to one of my shark drops, but we did
and it wasn't too bad.
lost a sharpnose shark that cut the line, but Dylan hooked up and landed
and released a nice bonnethead. Next Jackson landed a very nice bonnethead
that was released. Troy caught a Stingray, that we released as well as
a sharpnose shark that was released . Then he hooked and landed a very
nice 19 inch speckled seatrout.
hooked up again with a nice bonnethead that they kept to try on the grill.
We went in for a break then went back out where Dawn hooked up and got
a sharpnose shark to the boat that broke off. All in all a great day considering
