Carolina Explorer 9-29 Report. Fall Fishing has been Great, Let see what happens after all this rain.

September 29th, 2010 by Capt. Robert Schoonmaker | Comments Off

Sorry for the delayed report.  The fishing has been so good, that sitting in front of the computer was not an option.   We have been catching lots of redfish on lures or live bait.  The speckled trout, and flounder have been biting as well, but not as good as the redfish.  

Just off the beach we have had great spanish mackerel fishing.  Lots of nice fish and plenty of action.  The gray trout have been biting on live mullet or spoons.  The flounder action on the reefs has been ok, with some big fish showing up. 

Call for my fall rates.  If you have 1 or 2 people, I have the trip of you. 910-264-1807.

Checkout the pics and see what you might catch on your next trip.

Wally and his boys slammed the spanish macks, and some nice gray trout.

Matt with a double of nice reds.  Two fish two cast.  We slayed them this day, along with a few trout and flounder.

Candice with a nice fish.  She said the trip was for her son, but looking at this smile, I think she wanted to go fishing.


Susan and Rick with a double on redfish. The couple that fishes together stays together.  We also caught a nice spanish in the creeks, that was strange. 

Mark Jackson and his son fished with me two days.  We caught over 60 reds.  Most of the were upper slot to over slot fish. Some of the best fishing all fall.

Marks son with a 33inch brute.  I mean we slayed them. Released all the fish except a few flounder.  The ladies at the Gulfstream fried them for their lunch.

Ray Dixon of Dixons Heating and Air.  The best AC man in the county.  He keeps me cool in the summer.  We slayed the reds this day, 25 nice ones.  All released to catch tomorrow.

Jeff Gallimor with a nice red and trout.  He caught these fish on back to back cast.  The spinnerbaits were working today.

Arnold Kelly and his brother on their 10th or 12th trip with me.  He loves catching spanish and telling lies.  See you soon Arnold.

Brian with a nice redfish that fell for a Gulp shrimp.  You will see pics of them fishing lazy in a second.

Dave with a nice red that fell for a gulp.

Dave and Brian fishing lazy.  We casted plugs and caught plenty. It is had to drink beer and throw lures.  When they worked up a thirst, we stopped and minnow fished. Plenty of room on the flats boat and nice chairs.

The Simons with a father son redfish double.  They caught so many that they complained of sore wrist and arms.  I did manage to catch them a few flounder as well.

Sue and W.L. with some flounder. We caught lots of short fish this day. I need to invent the fish strecher.

Joyce and her brother caught lots of spanish and a few flounder. 

Thanks for reading the report.  We are in the middle of a major rain storm/tropical system.  With all the rain it should push the fish back down the river.  We will see what happens over the next few day.

If you want to go fishing or have any questions give me a call at 910-264-1807.

Carolina Explorer 9-2-10 fishing report. Lots of redfish, flounder, trout and shrimp.

September 2nd, 2010 by Capt. Robert Schoonmaker | Comments Off

I am still running my 275.o0 Cbfishing special.  If you are by yourself then call for great 1 or 2 person rates.  Here is the report.  We have been slaying the redfish on live minnows and lures.  If you like to lure fish we are catching the reds on topwater, crankbaits, spinnerbaits, and jigs with paddle tail minnows. If you want to kick back and relax, then we will throw some live bait out and bent the rod, quick like.  The flounder bite has been sporadic, we are still catching a few a trip.  Live mullet is the best for flounder. The trout are showing up and this fisihing will only get better. 

On a different note, if you want to fill you coolers with shrimp, give me a call 910-264-1807.  We can do a shrimping charter.  Look at the pics below and call for details.  The shrimp are nice size and taste great.

Lynn, I will post the pics of the 15 redfish day here, as soon as you send the pics. Thanks man, look foward to fishing with you next year.

Mrs. Smith with a great Carolina Beach redfish.  She caught the 1st fish and never looked back.  She was serious, look at her gloves.

Mr and Mrs Smith with some great redfish. We caught 16 this day and had a blast.  We also caught lizardfish, baby grouper, and a few small flounder.  Plenty of action for everyone.

Tommy and Ray with a tote full of shrimp.  We guess it was close to 80lbs on this drag.  If you want to do a seafood trip for shrimp, give me a call 910-264-1807.

Enough shrimp here to make Bubba Gump happy, shimp creole, BBQ shrimp, shrimp gumbo, etc……….

Call and ask for the Cbfishing special or book a shrimping trip.  You will have a good time on either one.

Thanks for reading the report.
