Strong Flounder Fishing

Wednesday, July 20th, 2011

Dennis went out on a charter and just last week caught 24 flounder in 1 trip.  Of the 24, 14 were keepers.  I can smell a fish fry in the future.  The mullet have been running and are the perfect size for catching flounder.  Look for a break in the current near a flat and drop.

We are back fishing!

It has been a while since our last post.  Fishing season has moved forward again in a great way.  We are catching Black and Red Drum in inlets as well as some Flounder.  The Flounder coming in have gotten bigger each week.  Last week we had multiple 7 lb + Flounder and it will only get better.  Offshore is strong as well.  Come by the store to get all the latest updates and all of the best ideas of how to have a great fishing day.

Fish Are Around!

Some Trout are being caught in the holes along the beach.  Occasional Flounder as well, but it won’t last long with them the water is getting too cold.  Some Stripers up the river.  Reds are being caught in the mouth of the inlets as well as Whiting still on the deep flats.

Huge Chopper Blues

Tuesday, September 28th, 2010

Mr. Marcus, king of the cut, was fishing from shore last week and caught a huge Blue.  He was 30″ long and a hair over 10lbs.  The blues were busting mullet schools about 3 hours before dead low tide.  I had a mullet hooked through the mouth with a circle hook and an extra long 40# fluorocarbon leader with a barrel swivel, bead and 3/4 oz. sinker.  The Blue took it and ran all but 3 twist off of my real.  He finally turned and came towards shore and was landed.  The hook set perfect in the corner of the mouth away from the teeth, otherwise he would have just cut the line.  People were just watching them bust mullet from their boat but never targeted them.  If they would have free lined a live mullet, they could have had as much fun as me and more.

Fishing and Weather is HOT!!!

Right now the mullet have moved into full swing and so has the fishing.  Everywhere inshore people are catching good size Flounder and Drum.  The Spanish move through the cut at the first incoming tide and are busting the mullet schools.  Float a rig in the current, use a good leader and hold on.  For Flounder rig a mullet with a Carolina Rig and cast into the break points of the current.  For the Drum, rig a mullet and cast it into the mouth of a small overflow area.  When the tides are dropping you will find the Reds coming to feed.

Mullet are Here so are Flounder

Sunday, July 18th, 2010

Flounder are starting to show up all over.  The mullet have started to move pretty good now.  The are still a bit small, but they work pretty good.  If you can still get some of the smaller menhaden, they work good as well, but you have to fight a few extra crabs with them.  Yesterday I was fishing side by side with 5 people.  2 were using Gulp! ghost shrimp and 2 were using the small mullet.  I had the only smaller menhaden and had much more action on it.

Flounder and Reds

Friday, June 25th, 2010

The menhaden are plentiful and right now that is what they are liking the most.  The mullet are still a little small.  Flounder are being caught on dropping tides in creek mouths and deep channels.  Redfish are are being caught in the mix as well.  Bluefish are also being caught best on the rising tides.  Get your live shrimp at the store and have a great day of fishing.

Flounders, Red & Sheephead

Wednesday, June 2nd, 2010

Small flounder are being caught in the waterway now.  Occasional 4 to 5 lb.  Red Drum are starting to bite strong now as well.  Sheephead being caught near structure as well.  A few black drum here and there.

fish on!

Friday, May 7th, 2010

I ran north of the Same Ol yesterday and had 12 mahi & 1 white marlin. Water temp was average 75 degrees as we found most of the fish right on the temp break and weed lines. All of my fish were caught on ballyhoo rigged seawitches and blue water candy “gaffer candys”. The majority of the fish were on blue/whites or blue/pinks. No wahoo or blackfin tunas in my area. All the reports south around the steeples were full of blackfin & wahoo, and a weaker bite of mahi.

Today we have weighed a 4.5 lb flounder caught in the inlet & a 57 lb wahoo caught at the steeples. Some reports today of spanish caught from sheepshead rock all the way up to the Marriott reef. Also alot of smaller flounder caught in the surf and some large schools of bigger redfish. Fishing season is here folks.

Specs are moving

Monday, April 5th, 2010

Specs are being caught around the islands in the river.  That is a good sign of better days ahead.  The weather has been great.  Try MirrOlure or live shrimp.
