Light Tackle King Mackerel
We had a repeat of the action that we had yesterday on the King Mackerel. My guest wanted to catch them on light tackle, so we went after them with the flounder rods. I have to say that was really fun catching good size King Mackerel on 10 and 12 pound test with 4000 series reels. We kept two smaller ones for the dinner table. When we got back to the dock at Anchorage Marina I cleaned their catch for them. They had talked to the chef at Bistro By The Sea and he was going to cook it up fresh for them that night.

If you like King Mackerel fishing and catching a lot of them you need to give us a call and book your trip. They are here and boy did they bring there appetite. Had a half day live bait trip today with a great group of guys. We caught fish the entire time we were out there. We kept some for the dinner table and released a lot of fish today.

We had a great time fishing the Bone Sucking Sauce King Of the Cape King Mackerel tournament this weekend. We started looking for bait around Anchorage Marina and made a run over to Harkers Island to pick up some really nice size menhaden. Made the decision to head North to our favorite fall fishing spots. The fish were there and we were able to catch 3 Kings for the day with the largest weighing 29.98 pounds. It was good enough for 10th place in the tournament and 2nd place in our Class for the SKA. We had a great time and would like thank our Sponsors Natural Service Group and Mr Trigger Tackle.
Had a great group of guys from Greensboro out for a charter on Wednesday. Left Anchorage Marina at 5:45 and had a beautiful ride out. Put out the Big Nick Dinner Bells just short of the 90 ft drop. In no time we had a big Wahoo burning down the 50W. We put him in the box and made a couple more laps on our marks before putting out the meat. Worked out way out towards the Big Rock and started to pick up fish pretty steady once we were there. Caught the rest of the wahoo on everything but the shotgun rod. The wahoo were wanting them close to the boat. Picked up a couple Mahi and found a couple huge schools of Bonito at the Big Rock and was able to catch one casting to them. Final count for the day was 7 wahoo 2 Mahi Mahi and one Bonito.
We have some open days in October give us a call to book your trips.
