Pine Island FL fishing report 12-9-09 Reel Adventure Charters

December 9th, 2009 by Capt. Matt Wirt | Comments Off

Hello everyone! I hope everyone had a happy thanksgiving. We have made the move to Florida for the winter and the Pine Island fishing has been insane! Lots of spanish, blues, ladyfish, and trout are on the flats, and near the passes in huge schools busting the surface. Cast your fly (small white clousers or gurglers) into the frenzy and you could come out with any of the 4 species! 60 fish half days have been the norm and just to add a little spice to it, about every 30 minutes or so a 3-5 shark usually shows up to try to take your catch! Thats a big shark for 2 feet or less of water!

The redfish and snook are working the mangroves and we have been doing well on them with fly. I got a nice snook and messed up a NICE redfish bite big time the other day. I sighted the fish, made the cast saw the red chase it and open its mouth and I set the hook and evidently pulled it right out!  I made a perfect follow up cast, but I think the redfish was frustrated as I was. He just followed the second cast a bit then went on about his way! The merkin crab fly pattern has been the fly of choice so far.

The snook light fishing at night has been good. The fish are always there. Some nights they bite, some nights they dont. I hope to check out a spot soon that holds tarpon, BIG jacks, and BIG snook very soon. That might be tomorrows plan.

If you are intrested in getting in on some warm sunny Florida fishing action just give me a call or click here: Pine Island Fishing Charters

Reel Adventure Charters is also offering gift certificates for Pine Island Florida fishing untill March 18 and for Wrightsville Beach fishing charters (from Topsail to Bald head) anytime after March 22. Just give us a call and we will get it to you before christmas, credit cards accepted!

Also, I made the decision a month ago to join facebook. I didnt think I would mess with it much but it is a neat way to give up to the minute reports (with pics) right from the boat via my Iphone. If you would like to keep in touch with whats going on with me (most of it is fishing related) please send me a friend request @

And finally, I am glad lots of you got in on the $45 fly rod deal! The Scientific Anglers 8wt 9? 2 piece NEW rods sold out quick. I sold 16 of the 21 that I was able to get. I have 4 left, just email or call to get the remaining few. Can ship if needed! I believe all that said they wanted one should have a check on the way. If any one doesnt have my address to send the check please email me asap @

Here are this weeks pics! Enjoy!

Killing it on the Cape Fear! 11-11-09

November 11th, 2009 by Capt. Matt Wirt | Comments Off

The North Carolina inshore fishing continues to be awesome and we are gearing up right now for our Pine Island fishing charters. We will operate out of Pine Island Florida from Dec 1 untill March 18 this year for the 5th year in a row. So far the response has been great and I look foward to fishing with you over the winter! This is true sightcasting and is perfect for the spinning rod angler or the fly rod angler alike! We have an awesome package deal for Florida, and you can find more info by clicking here: Pine Island Fishing

Before this weeks report, here are a few cool sites you might want to check out.

Reel Adventure has teamed up with Temple Fork Outfitters (TFO). Lots of you know I am a custom rod builder and this is the first time I have ever teamed up with a rod company. I am very picky and TFO makes some awesome products, the company is solid, and their customer service is great. Please check them out @ or better yet lets go put a bend in a few of them to see how you really like them!

Please listen to our interview on the radio we did last week @ and check us out at where we provide the Cape Fear fishing report this week.

This weeks report….The Wrightsville Beach Fishing and Carolina Beach Fishing continues to be great. The water temp is still extremely warm for this time of year. The red drum, trout, flounder, king mackerel, cobia, false albacore and just about everything else is biting well. This will continue untill we get a few cold fronts. After that happens the king mackerel, cobia, and flounder will push offshore and everything else should continue to bite well. What a great end to a great year!

Here’s this weeks pics. Enjoy!
