Cobia, Mahi, AJ’s, Kings, Citation Flounder, its all HERE!

June 21st, 2009 by Capt. Matt Wirt | Comments Off

WOW!!! is the only word to describe the fishing between this report and the last one. The last report was hard to beat and this report will do just that……with ease!

Offshore: The king mackerel, cobia and mahi are biting well on the live menhaden that seem to be everywhere! The amberjack bite has slowed a bit. This might be a good thing because I dont know how much more amberjack my reel drags could take!

Inshore: The redfish are biting well around the docks and these are upper and over slot fish. These fish are nailing the huge live menhaden and busting us off in the docks. My 20lb gear has been no match so far. Broken 40lb leaders and bent hooks have been the norm latley. I have up sized twice to yank them out, and after going 6-0 with no reds to the boat I am bringing my shark tackle tomorrow! The flounder bite is also good around the same docks and there are some big ones that like the same huge live menhaden! To eat a bait that size you gotta be big! Speaking of flounder……

Today was one of those trips that reminded me why I became a Captain. After being broken off in the docks by the redfish we heard the spanish bite was doing ok off the beach. So we picked up and ran out just to find it had slowed. My usual luck! After a fun but wasted ride out we came back to the redfish dock. We got broke off by another redfish. On the boat I had Nathan, his dad and I think his grandfather. I cant remember Nathan’s age but I think he was 12. I was waiting all morning for his rod to go off and with 20 minutes left in the trip boy did it! Drag was peeling but he got it away from the dock with just a tiny bit of help from dad. I am sitting there with the net waitng for a nice redfish to come up, but instead we were suprised by a 4.6lb flounder! Nathan and I slapped high fives and I put another monster menhaden on his hook and cast him back in the docks. Two minutes might have passed at the most and his rod is screaming again! Ok, NOW I’m ready to net Mr. Redfish…..and up comes another flounder and its BIGGER! 5.0 lbs and a NC citation! Thanks again guys!  With back to back flounder like that you might want to grab a lottery ticket!


Awesome! This dock is the same dock another of my charter’s caught a 13.6lb flounder on Sept, 11 2006. I dont know what catch is my favorite!

Here are the rest of this weeks pics! ( Can every week please be like this one!!)
39 lb cobia. Missed the citaiton by one pound!

Long time customer and friend Brian James with a nice Mahi. This guy always brings the luck! This mahi busted a friends topwater plug on another boat, came over to ours stole a bait and we chummed him back, and Brian hung  his bait right over the side and we watched this mahi eat it!

Topwater Aj’s. (Note to self dont throw $20 poppers to Aj’s over the wreck…its expensive!)



Kings are chewin!

Reel Adventure Charters 6-9-09 Fishing is on FIRE!

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

The Wrightsville Beach and Carolina Beach fishing is ON FIRE!! We are hooking up with 20-40 Amberjacks per trip. These fish weigh 25-45 lbs and are hitting flys, large popping plugs and live bait. This is all topwater action! You see everyfish. Not only are we seeing the fish before we catch them, we are seeing huge leather back turtles everywhere. Today we even had a estimated 300lb tiger shark beside the boat! And if it couldnt get any better along comes the Cobia. We went 1 for 4 today with 2 of them free gaffed. If you free gaff one have your fish box open and slam them in or else! Dont day I didnt warn ya!

It is like National Geographic out there right now!

If you want to get into this action give us a call! We are booked solid through June, but are now booking for the month of July. Call to reserve your date! The fish will be here!

Here are 2 new videos of the action. One is a cool video of me catching a 38lb Aj on fly and the other is my customers having a blast with hookup after hookup!

And here is just a taste of this weeks pics, Enjoy!
