The picture is of a 13 ft tiger shark brought along side the boat yesterday at Rock Star Sholes near the Cape Fear River. The shark hit a pogey rig. The anglers, Tony Crumpler & Anthony Cleg fought it for about 45 minutes. They released Jaws no worse for the wear.
This is a photo of the 38 lb. Wahoo caught by Mary Kwiatkowski and Andrew Horbaly, both of Charlottesville, VA.
They were on Board with Capt. Stan and first mate Matt on Wednesday, 7-31-13.
Thank ya'll for fishing with us folks!!
Fun day on the water with Capt. Jeff Beck, 1st Mates Camdyn Beck & Amanda Bennette and Steve Lanier. We had a hard time finding bait...making a run from the Shallotte Inlet to the Little River Jetties, asking the Getaway Dolphin Boat Captain Michelle Drake to spot for us west of the jetties and finally finding pogies in 7 ft deep water in front of the Oak Island Light House. A Capt. Brant's Custom net made short order of getting the bait in the boat. We then made a short run to the Lighthouse Rocks and simply spanked the spanish mackerel. The biggest was a 5.6 lb and the smallest was 4.1 lbs. Since everyone had places to be we pulled lines and made way to the OIFC. Check out our Facebook page for more pictures...We had plenty of cameras on board.
Capt. Jeff Williamson reported a good flounder bite inside this morning. A glimmer of hope that things are picking up for the flounder on the backwater scene. The redfish bite remains steady and are the #1 target on our charters. We have boated some nice flounder and trout as we have been searching for the reds. The backwater is still dirty from freshwater runoff, wind blown surf, and constant boat traffic making the bite difficult at times. Regardless of these conditions, this is what we do for a living and we work hard to find the fish. Here are some of the highlights from the last few days of action. See ya on the water.
