April 29th, 2011 by Capt. Robert Schoonmaker | Comments Off

The inshore fishing has remained steady over the past few weeks in Carolina Beach.  The redfish are starting to spread out in their usual summer patterns.  They are moving onto the flats and out into the main parts of the channel.  We are catching them mostly with Gulp alive shrimp and gulp minnows on a 3/8 jig-head.  I have also caught a few on top-waters and crank-baits.  Lots of fun for beginners and pros alike.  We have also been using shrimp or cut mullet when all else fails or we want a break from casting. The black drum and few flounder are being caught in with reds. 

Just off the beach the action has been reel good with plenty of bluefish, a few Spanish, and a few bonito.  We are catching the blues jigging Sea Striker Jig-fish spoons or casting them into fish on the surface.  The Spanish and bonito have been mixed in there as well. We can also troll for these scrappy fighters as well.

If you are looking for inshore or coastal fishing trip in Carolina Beach, Wrightsville Beach, or Wilmington, then give me a call at 910-264-1807.  Summer is Just around the Corner, so start planning those Summer Family Fishing Trips 910-264-1807.

4-7 Carolina Explorer Fishing Report: Still Catching lots of redfish, some black drum, and whiting. The warmer temps are making for some great days on the water!!!!

April 8th, 2011 by Capt. Robert Schoonmaker | Comments Off

Well the redfishing is still going strong, just look at the pics and see for yourself.  Most of these fish have been on lures, but we can use bait if you want too.  Sometimes just kicking back and relaxing is the best way to catch fish.  Either way, I will be glad to put you on some great redfish action.  As you can see the redfish have been the main attraction.  That being said, the whiting and a few black drum have been biting as well.  Spring is just around the corner and we will see the trout (which we can’t keep until June ), blues,  more black drum,  gray trout,  and a few flounder start to show up in the next few weeks.  Thanks for reading the report and remember to have fun and be safe on the water.
