Folks, May is just a couple days away and while we are catching sushi grade Bonito (little Tunas), Blues, Grey Trout, Seabass, Redfish, Speckled Trout and more between our inshore and nearshore trips, We are already seeing big Spanish Mackeral and a few Cobia showing up! May is going to offer up plenty of nearshore action on Spanish and King Mackerel, Bonito, Mahi, and more! Our inshore waters will be holding plenty of redfish, blackdrum, blues, trout and sheepshead. We are operating safely during this COVID 19 event utilizing continuous cleaning and sanitizing of our boat before, during and after each fishing trip and social distancing practices between non-family members. If you cannot find a rental on the beach, be sure to check with our local quality hotels (Best Western Silver Creek Inn, Cedar Point, 252-393-9015/ Hampton Inn and Suites, Swansboro, 910-325-9000/ Days Inn by Wyndham, Cape Carteret, 252-393-9000).
After an amazing 2019 Trout Season we’re finding excellent numbers of Speckled Trout this April 2020 and we should be seeing some great trout fishing this summer and fall. We are operating safely through this Covid 19 Pandemic and our clients are having fun while being safe onboard. Give us a shout to schedule your trip for this May, June or the rest of the year.
July has been phenomenal aboard both Fish’n4life and Taylor’Made Charters. We’ve had one of the best King mackerel seasons in over 10 years and it will last thru september! To add to this great news, we’ve been hooking up our clients with plenty of big Spanish Mackerel and Flounder too. The backwaters have been good for Redfish and Flounder and we’ve been catching them on Berkley Gulp Shrimp as well as live bait. We still have a few openings for August fishing. If your group is ready to get onboard, give us a shout!
