  • Fishing the SE Coast

    The weather got a little windy for Friday and the weekend and those folks who ventured out were in for a rough ride, with some dangerous inlet passages. Aoat capsized in Bogue Inlet, but word is that everyone was rescued. Most folks decided to stay inside and wait it out and it may be a few more days before it gets real nice again, especially on the south-facing beaches.

    Those who went into the ocean found some Spanish along the beaches, a few kings and a few dolphin. The big boat that went farther caught dolphin well. Pier fishermen saw a mixture in the sloppy conditions.

    A father and son had 'one of those days' before the winds blew up. Gerald and Mark Turner, headed to the Blackjack Hole in their 27 Contender after some mahi and got a big surprise.

    They had caught a few mahi when they noticed a sailfish free jumping. They turned toward it and hooked a sailfish. Before theylanded it more sails were free jumping and they kept fishing. They managed to land (and release) four sailfish. Congratulations are in order!!!!

    Inshore the flounder bite is picking up and we hope they will get larger. The shorts are about half of the catch. Puppy drum are biting well in the creeks and bays and will probably move up into the grass towards the end of the week and the moon builds to full next Monday.

    Good Fishing,
    Capt. Jerry Dilsaver
