The Wrightsville Beach Fishing and the Carolina Beach Fishing has been great! Fall fishing is in full swing! When the weather allows we are catching red drum, bluefish, amberjacks, king mackerel, flounder and sharks on light tackle. Now is the time to fish! Give us a call. The proof is in the pictures!

Thanks to our new sponsors: Quantum Reels, Tibor Fly Reels, Rio Fly Line, Columbia, Simms, and Smith Action Optics. Please check out their products. I use them for one reason…they are the best!

We have gotten quite a few AJ’s on fly rod. 12 wt and 10 wts are barely a match for these guys! Lots of breakoffs, but a few have made it boatside!


Reel Adventure will be operating out of Pine Island Florida (near Ft. Myers…zip code 33956) again this winter! This is catching not fishing! We will be on the brand new custom Beavertail….. stalking trout, snook, redfish, and lots more on both fly and spin tackle. It is all sight fishing and is VERY AFFORDABLE! Click chere for the info….. PineIsland Fishing Charters I hope to see some of you down there this winter. Everyone that came last year has already rebooked for this year!

Please check out or latest video of our customers RIPPING amberjacks out of the wrecks. Its pretty cool! We have had so many citation amberjack I have lost count!

Enjoy the pics! There are alot of them!

Had this AJ on for about 5 minutes. It was a 100 ft give and take battle the whole time before he beat the 10 wt gear. It was awesome… line came half way in and shot right back out over and over. Cant wait untill the next one!!

Reel Adventure Charters 10-9-08 report…’s a good one!

October 9th, 2008 by Gillwetter Press | 1 Comment »

The Wrightsville Beach Fishing and  Carolina Beach Fishing has been hot the past couple of days. We have had a great week with Spanish on Fly (you have to see the video!), Black drum on a new fly I designed..”the transformer ”(the tying video is below), and we boated a 164 pound Bull Shark. The shark was weighed and filleted and eaten so it did not go to waste. It is the biggest one to date we have landed and it surpassed John Ribbles and Paul Rocha’s 131 lb baby shark. LOL, I hope they are reading this, if so give me a call! This shark fulfilled my quest for a citation shark and again was not wasted so I hope I dont catch the grief from some that have nothing better to do than gripe about a dead shark, it has happend before. Sorry but I dont mean to be rude, it is a legal catch and will feed quite a few families!

Sorry for the lack of reports. I have just been flat out busy!! I also had to get a new I phone and reset everything in it. That takes forever when its not backed up! Unfortunately I fell in the water with my last one, so Phelpsy…….I know its comming let me have it! You are now off the hook for going overboard and me laughing about it all day. Lots of you may not get this, its a long story.

Here are SOME of the pics and videos!  I will have alot more next report. I hope you enjoy them and please give us a call to get hooked up. Now is the best time of the year to fish!

 Check out the Spanish Mackerel on Fly video below……watch for the big spanish at the end!

One of NC State Patrol’s finest with a 100 lb shark tagged and released. Maybe I can get out of my next ticket?? )


One of Charlotte’s finest with a 164 pound bull shark!


The weigh station was not big enough to get it off the ground.They used construction equipment nearby to lift the beast up! Awesome Catch!!

Let’s go fishing!! The Shark Fishing is winding down but everything else is heating up. Next report we will have the Florida site ready and up to date for this years Florida Charters out of Pine Island Florida running from Dec 1 thru March 1 on the Beavertail! Hope to see some of you guys…we are booking up already!
