Need a fast sink net that you can laaunch out in front of your boat Pogies will get scarace in Novemeber but we will see increased schools of cigars and boston mackerel.November hot spots will start off 90's and as water cools will push to jungle/shark hole then to horseshoe and 32 mile rock and in December/jan will be on ledges around the tower.
Hot spots of late have been of course little river jetties, calabash crossroad area, Shallotte river and Lockwood river have all produced trout. I will be down at Holden beach next Thursday until the whole following week which is Thanksgiving. I know that they have been close lately but with this cold front that just came in, do you think it will ouch them off to the shark hole or even the Horseshoe? New to fishing in the winter months for kings when we can't find pogies easily. Where around the tower should I look for cigar minnows on the bottom to jig sabiki rigs for them? They should continue this weekend as nothing dramatic with weather this week and it is settling from cold front on Monday Pogies are up and down the beach, usually better off Long Beach.
IF it is really nice I would like to get the stream if the fish are biting out there! If I need to go somewhere else before I go to the tower to jig them I will too. They will get harder to catch now as they being to 'run' vs "ball".
A couple of years ago I went on a charter with Captin Jacob and caught plenty of black drum off of live shrimp under the Ocean Isle bridge.
Since then, I've fished under the bridge with live shrimp, but I have not had any sucess.
It was off the chain in June, but has pretty much disappeared altogether since July. Shallotte Inlet around the docks and sea wall at Inlet View bar and grill has been producing as of late.
However, the weather is making each and every day a little different causing the fishing to be a bit tricky. Jacob Frick Mother Nature has given us a magnificent blessing with a cold front in the middle of the summer.
The Kings were at the Horseshoe before the recent cold fronts. If water at HS has cooled push on off toward the Tower.
At HS, be on lookout for Bluefin Tuna; they are in the neighborhood.
When you see it bouncing, slowly raise to surface and free line small pieces of the jelly ball. Hi, I notice that your charter fleet always has good electronics.
I am going to upgrade my boat and wanted to know who you recommend to do the work. question, my son & I are visiting ocean isle this weekend from Sunday to Tuesday. I was wondering what you would charge for a 4 hour inshore fishing guided trip? preferably Monday morning (7/17/17) the groin project is to start this winter.
I use a different knot[a Steve Shook knot] but would have to demonstrate.
