Capt. Jeremy had a 3 person 6 hr trip today. He had John, Arthur
and Nick. The water was clear to stained and Capt. Jeremy reported that
they had a good bit of action after the tide changed. They caught a few
speckled seatrout, some redfish, bonnethead sharks and ladyfish. Kept
a few fish for a meal Below is Nick holding a fierce bonnethead! This
was a good day to end the Month of June!
Capt. Rick had a 2 person 4 hr trip for Judy today. They wanted
to catch some sharks, so we got with it and headed out at 6:30 am . Stopped
and trout fished for about 30 minutes and caught a few, but finally got
a ladyfish to the boat and a bluefish. With that we went on out to the
beachfront and caught some large sandbars sharks. Lost the 1st 2 at the
boat, then 1 broke the line, not the leader and finally we boated 3. Great
4 hours on the boat with 2 ladys from toronta. It took both of them to
reel and hold the rod.
Capt. Rick had a 3 person 6 hour trip today, with Andrew, his
son Audi and Brianna. Brianna really wanted to catch a shark today, so
we tried and succeeded. Lots of small sharks, but she wanted something
bigger so we first caught and released a few speckled seatrout that were
just not quite 13 inches. Kept 1 bonnethead sharks and a few whiting.
Released 2 spinnersharks and 1 or 2 sandbar sharks and a bonnethead. The
spinnersharks and sandbar sharks were caught on a ladyfish that we used
for chunck bait. Brianna lost a very nice redfish inshore and Andrew landed
a 27 inch redfish that was over the legal limit of 23 inches. A good day
on the water with a very nice group.
Capt. Jeremy had a last minute trip for Bull River Marina. They
caught a number of fish, but Did not have the camera with him, so no pictures.
Capt. Jeremy had 2 trips today a 6 hour Thunderboltcharters trip,
then a 4 hour trip for Bull River. Both trips caught a mixed bag. On the
first trip Capt. Jeremy had David and Betty. Besides catching some trout,
and redfish, they also caught an undersize permit and a long silver ribbonfish.
During the summer, you never know what fish you might catch. The trout
bite has picked up, but there are quite a few short trout mixed in with
keeper trout. If you cannot get live shrimp for bait, try a mudminnow
or throw your castnet on finger mullet and small menhaden. The camera
died after the first trip, so we only have pictures of David and Betty.
Capt. Jeremy had 2 four hour trips today with the 1st one departing
at 7am and the 2nd left at 12 pm. Both trips had 2 people. The one that
left this morning was a Thunderboltcharters trip and 2nd one was for Bull
River Marina. Water clarity was good and the temp is in the mid 80's.
Live shrimp are very hard to get right now, but they had some.
first trip was with Mike and his son. They caught a mixed bag of 9 keeper
sized trout and 2 slot reds and several ladyfish, and blue fish and some
Capt. Jeremys 2nd trip was with Gary and his son. They caught
trout, sharks and flounder and redfish.
Capt. Jeremy had a 6 hour 3 person trip departing at 7am today.
Jeremy had Pat, Maria and Rick. Water temp was 85 degrees. They had a
slow trout bite on the last of the outgoing and the first of the incoming.
Water clarity was dirty to stained. They also caught some sharks, ladyfish,
bluefish, whiting and a small redfish.
Capt. Jeremy had a 6 hour 2 person trip today with John and his
brother in law. The winds have calmed down and the tides were better than
earlier in the week. Low tide was around 6:15 am so they were able to
fish all the incoming tide. Water clarity was better and the temp is still
in the low 80's. They caught a variety of fish, including a juvenile Jack
Crevelle. They kept a couple trout and sharks . Fishing around the beachfront
they got into alot of ladyfish. Starting to get into the summer pattern
where you never exactly know what you might catch.
Capt. Jeremy ran a trip today for Bull River Marina. This was
a group of 4 and Capt. Jeremy reported that they were all good anglers.
The water temp was in the low 80's and the clarity was turbid. This is
partially due to the moon phase. We are coming off a perigee moon, with
this past Friday the 13th full honey moon is when i the lunar cycle of
the moon is at its shortest distance from Earth. This has led to some
extreme currents. That being said, they caught some nice fish. Speckled
seatrout, bonnethead sharks as well as some slot reds. Not a bad 4 hours
on the water.
Capt. Rick and Capt. Jeremy both had 4 hour trips today. Capt
Ricks started at 7am and Capt. Jeremys was at 1pm. Capt. Rick had a great
group of 3 people, Bob, Cody and Mike. All 3 were very good fisherman.
We kept 1 trout, 1 flounder several whiting , 1 bonnethead. Released some
ladyfish, kept some ladyfish for shark bait and Cody, landed about a 40
lb Sandbar shark!
Jeremy had 5 people that wanted to whiting and shark fish. They caught
plenty of both! Water temp was in the low 80's and the clarity was poor!
Capt. Rick had a great 4 hour trip for Miss Judy today. We departed
her dock at 7am. Pam and Don really wanted for Pam to catch a shark, and
keep a few fish to eat, so we headed out to the sound. Pam caught 2 nice
atlantic sharpnose sharks that we landed. Don caught 1 that we got in
the boat and 1 that got off at boatside. In between sharks we kept 12
whiting for a meal and released a few more. When we got back to the dock
another guides group had kept 2 Speckled seatrout that they did not want
so we cleaned those as well. I think we had a great trip and accomplished
what Pam wanted.
Capt. Jeremy had a 6 hour 2 person trip today. He had Trey and
Bill from Texas. Capt. Jeremy reported that they were both very good anglers.
Water temp was low 80's and clear despite being on the cusp of a full
moon. They caught and released approx 40 speckled seatrout, a flounder,
a couple bonnethead sharks. Had a nice redfish break them off. All in
all a great day on the water!
Capt. Jeremy had a 6 hour 1 person trip today. He had Jordan today
and they decided to go for Trout and redfish. Well they actually got an
inshore slam, being they got speckled seatrout, 3 nice redfish, each one
bigger than the next, the largest right at 28 inches and a flounder. They
also caught some bonnethead sharks , but stayed close and did not go after
Sandbar sharks today. Water temp is in the low 80's but the fishing was
excellent today. All fish were released unharmed. The spot pattern on
the last 2 pictures is very close, but you can tell they are 2 different
Capt. Jeremy had a 6 hour 3 person trip today. He had Ricky,Billy,
and Caitlen on board. They caught a several different fish. Below is Billy
holding a ladyfish that was used for bait on one of several sharks caught
and released. Water temp is in the low 80's but the current is fastand
the water clarity is stained due to the upcoming full moon.
Capt. Rick had a 6 hour 3 person trip today for miss judy charters,
my boat was part of several that was on a group trip. We departed her
dock at 6:30 am and headed out. Apparently a front started passing through
as the wind picked up but the barometer had not moved any from yesterday.
It appears we are under a low pressure. Anyway the trout biting pretty
good. My guys caught a few and missed some as well. Also got a ladyfish
that we kept for Bull Red and Shark bait. Moved to another spot that was
protected from the wind, but only had 1 good hard trout bite and that
fish got off. Moved out near the beach front and tried for bull reds.
Caught a number whiting and a couple sandbar sharks as well as atlantic
sharpnose. All sharks were dehooked and released alive. I had a great
day on the water and made some new friends.
Capt. Rick had Dawn and her son Conner today for a 6 hour trip.
We departed the marina at 7am. Had lots of action all day. Caught a few
Speckled seatrout, whiting, bluefish, atlantic sharpnose sharks and 2
big sandbar sharks. We didn't get a bull red today, but did get the sandbar
sharks. Water temp is in the very low 80's and clear at some spots. Beat
the bad thunderstorm in by about 15 minutes. Didn't get any pictures of
the sharks with my camera as these were bigger than normal and I had to
get the hooks out and get them back in the water safely.
Capt. Jeremy ran a trip today for Bull River Marina. Tried for
Bull Reds but only got into atlantic sharpnose sharks and a large ray.
The water temp was mid 80's and the clarity was stained. The person holding
the Ray really wanted a picture, so Capt Jeremy tied his stinger to his
tail for the picture, then released the Ray without the rag unharmed.
While rays can deliver a significant wound, we do not cut off the rays
Capt. Jeremy ran a trip today with Artie and his wife and son.
They caught some small trout, but was shooting for a bull red. Water conditions
were rough, but not too bad, however they did not connect with a Bull
Red today only sharks. They caught small sharks and a nice atlantic sharpnose.
Moved inshore to try for some trout and caught a nice bonnethead shark.
Also caught some whiting and had 1 large Bull or possibly a large stingray
that pulled the steel leader from its crimp.
Capt. Rick had a great party of 4, but the weather conditions
were awful to bad. Winds truely were a steady 20 knots out of the east.
We experienced rain and clouds for most of the trip. No one complained.
The goal was to get out and catch a bull redfish, but unfortunatly I could
not SAFELY do that. It was just too rough. I had Tommy, Libby, Donna and
Alan. Water temp was mid 70's and when we sought shelter it was clear.
Caught a couple speckled seatrout, bluefish and Donna hooked a huge brownnose
cowray that broke the surface, but went for the dock and parted the line.
Alan did catch a beautiful 25 inch redfish, that was revived and released
. Hoping to try this again when the weather is better!
