  1. Things are slow here in the Myrtle Beach/Murrells Inlet SC area this time of year... Fishing Reports Myrtle Beach/Murrells Inlet area Fishing Report Fishing the Murrells Inlet/Myrtle Beach area is seasonal with the fishing a little slow for March til the middle of April. Mid April, the fishing starts to pick-up for some Flounder and Red Drum. Everything[Fishing] is always weather related in Murrells Inlet and Myrtle Beach the sooner the water temp. gets in the 60's the fishing will get better. Late April thru December is always a good time for fishing for Red Drum, the bait moves in and the fishing turns on. June, July and August, the water temp is getting rite for ALL fishing in the Murrells Inlet/Myrtle Beach areas! Everything is good at the beach! People are out in the sun,shopping,fishing and the Murrells Inlet/Myrtle Beach area is hopping! August and September the Spanish and King Mackerel are on the beach and can be caught live baiting along the coast. We often catch them at the jetties or 3-mile reef or trolling with planners and spoons. Fishing at Murrells Inlet/Myrtle Beach during the summer months you never know what you are going to hook-up with so expect to catch a anything while fishing,maybe even a SHARK. For all you that like catching Trout, Weakfish Trout are plentiful sometimes around Sept/ Oct. While the true Winter Trout only starts when the water temps start dropping in to the 60's and lower. I'm Capt Shannon Currie and hope you have a great fishing experience while fishing in Murrells Inlet/Myrtle Beach please call or visit the site below if you need more info.There you will find all fishing info and pictures.
  2. tried fishing assateague island for the last time saturday night got skunked again as normal for the past 17 years . what am i missing other than fish . never see any thing other than small skates n shark smaller than 16'' . think i'll stick to fishing delaware's beaches , they are closer and more actual fish worth catching. WHAT AM I MISSING?!
  3. Anyone know if I would have any realistic success surf fishing for sharks on Long Island. I'm worried that they remain too far from the coast to have decent odds at catching any. Thanks.

Hopfully with your help my fishing adiction will turn into a catching adiction. Daveh 8)
  5. Of all the time I've spent fishing the bay i have never really targeted flounder. Ive caught plenty on peeler fishing for greys. What is everyone's favorite jig or lure or rig for catching them? Thanks in advance for the insite.
  6. I was catching non-stop doggies last week, so after gut hooking two of them, I decided I was fish hungry. I cleaned them right on the beach, and iced them down. The next day, I cut them into chunks, marinated them in olive oil, sea salt, freshly ground pepper and fresh lemon for a few hours. I also threw on a few steaks just in case my experiment didn't turn out as planned. (plus, Carrie won't even touch a doggie) I must say, it was exceptionally good! I put a little butter on while cooking and it was very tender, great flavor (simple ingredients) and I will definitely do it again. Here are also a few pictures of some of the striper from this past weekend, tuna, steaks and corn. I love to grill!
  7. Part 1 - Reading the Water Why is this important? If what lies below the surf waters was thoroughly understood and embraced, the more success the surf fisherman would have at catching fish! Sounds simple, but truth is reading the water is difficult. So what is below the surf waters? Well, certainly there are fish, we already know this...and for many of us that is all that needs to be known... So, for those so inclined, I guess reading the water is not a prerequisite to successfully catching fish... And there is some truth in this...a surf fisherman can totally disregard what the water is telling him, make a cast, and put a fish on the beach...happens all the time. Why? Because the fisherman more than likely, but unknowingly, had put his offering into the surf where there happened to be a fish... The question though is why was that fish there? Was it by random chance that the fish happened to be swimming by at that exact moment? Well yes, maybe...but the fish may have very well been there for other reasons...one of those reasons is what I will call the physical environment or "structure" of the surf waters or more precisely the structure of the sandy bottom of the surf waters that attracts game fish... I'll address bottom fishing w/ bait along the sandy beaches of the the DelMarVa coast. Fishing the inlets, rock groins, piers and backwaters of the DelMarVa peninsula is a subject unto itself and perhaps can be discussed in another thread... Our beaches for all intended purposes are typically very flat w/ a gentle incline. This beach structure is rather common up and down the east coast and is deceptively uninteresting at first glance. The following is a simplistic drawing of a cross section of the beach and surf... Note, there are "generally" 2 main sandbars that run parallel to the beach...in the drawing they are labeled the outer and near shore sandbars... Also, there are "generally" 2 main sloughs (troughs) that too run parallel to the beach... The location of sandbars is revealed above the surf waters where waves initially crest and rollover...these crashing waves are called "breakers." The outer sandbar of course has larger breakers, while the near shore sandbar breakers are smaller... The sloughs also are revealed above the waters where there are little to no breakers. The next image is a picture of a typical looking surf on the DelMarVa coast... The above picture I took not for the waves but something else...let's see if any of you sharpies can identify what is going on... Now that this basic surf structure is understood visually the next step is easy... Fish will frequent the sloughs in the surf, especially Stripers. They like to get as low as possible w/ their bellies virtually touching the sand as they cruise the sloughs...it is here they are most comfortable plus the slough gives them a certain degree of stealth as they move about looking for food... So, placing your offerings in the slough would be optimal as shown in the next image... A less viable option IMHO would be to place the offering on the sandbar...if the slough does not produce fish I would considered placing the offering on the sandbar...but only during high tide and not at all on the near shore sandbar at low tide...the water would just be too skinny at that time and location... Part 2 - Reading the Water Lets look at another surf structure that probably accounts for more "fishy activity" than any other—the out-suck aka rip current aka hole aka riptide aka break in the sandbar, etc. Here is a drawing that depicts an out-suck...for simplicity purposes only 1 sandbar is shown... Note, not all "breaks in the sandbar" are out-sucks... This picture shows a wide break in the outer sandbar on AI...but there was no out-suck. Remember, Stripers like moving water and current...here they are masterful and powerful swimmers, using their broad tails to maneuver about in the surf... So the area around an out-suck from the feeders, through the neck (channel) and out into the head is prime Striper habitat... Why? Because at the out-suck water is swirling about, forming a current to and past the outer sandbar wherein small bait fish can get swept up or caught in the dynamics of the moving water and ending up as easy prey for the Striper. The place where Stripers will congregate the most at an out-suck of course is at the head or just outside the outer sandbar. Here they lie in wait to ambush their prey...sort of like a feeding station. Unfortunately, it is nearly impossible to place (cast) an offering beyond the outer sandbar as the distance is too great. However, the Stripers will come into the neck and even the near shore feeders of the out-suck when they are hungry (which is all the time) looking for prey... So optimally, you want to place (X) your offerings perhaps as follows...note, a very good area would be the ends of the sandbar which are sometimes called a shoulder... Out-sucks are hard to see at times, especially at water level... I'll climb a dune or stand on my truck to see better the water conditions. Also, out-sucks are more pronounce at or near low tide. Finally, here are some pic's of out-sucks... Standing on a beach they could look rather subtle and therefore easily overlooked... By: Rumble Fish aka Poppy on stripersonline.com
  8. Sent to me by Capt. Max King 37' 2010 Contender Check out this Contender that "ran aground". Boat was only 6 hours old. Operator claimed he was doing 28 knots. Both people on board were 100% sober. Cost him $10,000 to have Tow Boat US pull him back to the water. 4 tow lines parted in the process. MSRP on the boat ranges from $300,000 to $400,000 depending on options."
  9. Had the day off and headed to NOB for some early season flounder tagging. According to my records, the flounder should be at the pier and begin to bite any day for this location. Arrive to a cooler than expected fog/cloud covered morning and begin to toss my 1/4 oz red jig head with a 4" chartreuse gulp alive swimming mullet. Nothing for a bit and I am talking to one other Navy Active Duty fisherman as he is using a white gulp and a chartreuse head. Both of us working the rail up and down, till I finally start getting some short flounder taps. Let them eat and finally bring up my first flounder of the year at 10" long and toss him back. That's right, no tag due to this year only flounder 12" and over get tagged. I keep getting hit on the chartreuse so I ask the Navy guy if he wants one and he accepts. Sun begins to burn off the fog and we both start working hard, but catching some more flounder in the 13"-14" range, tag them and let them go. I then had a nice fat 16"-17" flounder by a piling take me and had him almost to the rail when he got off, so I dropped my gulp right back down there. WHAM, get smacked again and as I lift the flounder off the bottom, he takes off. Managed to stay out of the pilings and get him to the surface and it's not the same fish, only one bigger. With no net around and not taking the risk, I walk him all the way down to the rocks where the Navy guy walks down and grabs him, while I beached the flounder. Flounder came in just a small bit over a keeper, so in the box he went!:blob1: Slow the rest of the time out there, but nice to get out, my guess is this inconsistent weather has the flounder a bit off for this location. Total for the day was 6 fish tagged, 1 tossed back, 3 lost at the rail and 1 keeper! Almost forgot, the Navy guy had a beautiful healthy schoolie rockfish right at 22" long whiched smacked his jig as he was pulling it out of the water. Filleted up the flounder and my son and daughter tore it up for dinner last night and even let me have some as well!
  10. Thursday’s trip was met with lots of high expectations. The tides were ideal for hunting snook and redfish. Before running to the Eastern shore of Tampa Bay we needed to gather bait. My anglers today Jim and Tom joined Captain Steven to gather bait. Unlike previous days the Skyway Bridge was lots of work, it took an hour to have just enough for the day. It was very expensive bait as I ripped 2 cast nets on barnacle encrusted pilings. Use caution when tossing a net up current of hazards. With a stronger than forecasted NE wind making the water choppy it was a bumpy ride to Bishops Harbor. Snook were nowhere to be seen; Tom had one snook explode on bait with no hookup. Jim and Tom were making great casts with no results. I decided to leave the snook behind and check out the redfish action at Tarpon Key. As we eased in on the mangroves the Captain next to us was hooked up. Moments later they were on hooked up again. We casted chunk baits along the oyster bar and waited. We saw numerous reds but did not connect. So much for plan B. About now Captain Steven was anxious to get his anglers on fish. I moved us to a shallow grass flat with and deep drop off to 10’. Again a slow start then thankfully we started catching trout. Most were beautiful keeper size spotted sea trout with many 18-22”. These beauties were thick and clearly eating like crazy. Mackerel made their appearance with one a pushing 26”. The bite was on for 15 minutes then off it was like that for an hour. Thank goodness the day ended on a positive note. Jim and Tom were great guys, good anglers and fun to have onboard. Captain Steven Markovich Tampa Bay Fishing Charters | On The Mark Charters
  11. Going to Charleston SC (isle of palms) on May 1st-8th, I plan on doing a little bit of surf fishing again. I really want to pull in a good shark this time. Is there any advice someone could give me? What you use rigs and bat wise!!! I live on a small lake and it is over loaded in bate fish, I was thinking of catching a few and freezing them. Maybe even soaking them in something for a day then freezing them. I could be wrong for that, it just seems if I have a fish with enough nasty funk on it something will want to eat it. ha ha. let me know guys!!! Thanks!
  12. After more than two decades away from plugging I have come back to do some rock hopping and fishing. So far I am having a great time catching schoolies. I am not sure if I every want to pick up my Lami 1502 heaver again.
  13. At On The Mark Charters our specialty is chasing big snook and redfish. It’s Captains Steven’s passion hunting two of Tampa Bay’s premiere game fish on local flats and numerous Mangrove Islands. Make no bones about snook and redfish are labeled glamour species for several reasons. They can be fickle, evasive and at times next to impossible to get to chew. It’s common for me to book local anglers who are frustrated by never catching snook and want to learn the how to. A day with a good Captain will shorten you learning curve immensely. I pride myself on putting my clients on their very first snook. Watching a snook or redfish slam live bait in shallow water is an amazing and exhilarating experience. Watching my anglers face light up as they do battle with their first red or snook is always a treat. I was not on the water Wednesday but got several reports. Captain Jim Fesperman of Hook Setting Charters report Gator trout to 28” were feeding aggressively in lower Tampa Bay. The trout are taking white baits free lined in 2-6’ of water. Top water and sub surface lures are also scoring big gator trout. I also received several Mackerel reports which were all outstanding. Inside Tampa Bay and local beaches are loaded with these toothy speedsters ready to eat every silver spoon tossed at them. Mackerel action can be nonstop and tons of fun on light tackles. Bait is finally showing up on local flats. Anglers not wanting to toss a cast net in deep water around local bridges can now chum white baits boat side in 3’ of water. Be patient as it may take 15-20 minutes to get the white baits balled up and ready for you to toss your net. Captain Steven Markovich www.onthemarkcharters@gmail.com
  14. Harbor Tackle, West Ocean City, Md. Fishing Report for April 16, 2010 Finally something to report, I thought I might have to turn my store into Harbor Tackle Candy Store and if for those who know me you know that I would soon eat all my profits. A few of my customers are starting to hook up some stripers at AI using fresh bunker. The Inlet is producing scattered stripers. The tog fishermen are catching fish at the usual places mostly using live green crabs along with frozen sand fleas and live chowder clams. Even though the flounder season does not open until April 17th, some flounder have shown up in the south bay behind Assateague and some stripers have been picked up too. Devon Fernandez picked up this 23 inch tog using live green crabs at 4th Street in Ocean City. Harbor Tackle has fresh bunker, live bloodworms, live green crabs, live eels, black saltys, live chowder clams, big live minnows.
  15. Hooked up my center console aquasport and towed it south of ocean city on sunday,thought i would give wachapreague area another try as i got skunked there in mid march.went to quimby first and got a lot of action/with no legal size fish 18.5 inches .had to keep cleaning the slimy grass off my rigs,but wound up catching over a dozen flounder.stayed and fished wachapreague monday 'with the same slimy grass problem and less action.only a half dozen flounder all under size.enjoyed the trip just the same.
  16. The day started looking for bait and it was there in full force. Beautiful 3-4” white baits eagerly came to the chum I was tossing leaving only to toss the cast net. These great baits are finally in Tampa Bay after the long frigid winter. It’s these white baits that act like candy to local favorites the snook and redfish. With an incoming tide on local flat it didn’t take long for enough water to flood into the mangrove islands in lower Tampa Bay. It only took twenty minutes to find a huge school of large redfish. The next 90 minutes it was wide open catching and releasing redfish 29” – 33”. Chumming white baits into the school of redfish kept them fired up and inhaling baits. It was one after another until everyone has their fill. Did I mention worn out arms? These fish were very happy, hungry and ready to play. Even with 5-6 boats on the fish they did not flinch. It was a great example of how multiple boats can work a school of redfish without scaring them away. Patience way key and everyone cooperated. Look for schools of redfish around oyster bars and mangrove islands the next few months. I got a good report that mackerel bite remains hot I even heard reports of tarpon sightings. I also got a great offshore report of permit, cobia and grouper in 50’ of water. Looks for more great action as the bait continues to pour in and water temperatures rise into the mid 70’s.

  17. The hickory shad and herring are really making a strong run in the upper Rappahannock. There is nothing like catching hickories and herring on zabiki rigs. What a blast!
  18. One of the great parts of being a professional Captain is the people you meet. One of my favorite charters has to be father & son teams. Wednesday it was a pleasure to welcome back Barry and his son Nolan for another day on the water. Last year Nolan caught just about every species of fish in Tampa Bay! If I recall correctly I believe he took 8 or 10 different species of fish. After Sundays rain and cold front things had settled down I was optimistic for a quality outing. First stop was the top secret Black drum location. So much for secrets by 845 there was 20 boats chasing drum. Our first cast was immediately slammed by a large drum. Sadly the fish quickly broke free. We used the trolling motor to quietly ease up on the school and once again hooked up. It was game on with over 50 pounds of Black drum on one end and 90 pound Nolan on the other end. Nolan was amazing to say the least, using a medium action rods he worked the Drum to the boat 3 or 4 times over 20 minutes. Finally Dad jumped in and had the Drum boat side in another 10 minutes. We took pictures and jumped back into the action. By now boats were chasing the school. it’s imperative to wait and be patient and not pressure the school. They drum headed to deeper water and not seen again the next few hours. Trust me be patient and keep the school happy and you will get your shot at a true inshore giant. We rounded out the balance of the day catching Trout, Ladyfish, Catfish and Pinfish. The water had cooled from Sundays storm and was very murky is spots. The 7 day forecast is outstanding with warm, sunny days. Look for waters temperatures jump from 66 to 70 quickly.

  19. I was thrilled to get these shots tonight. It still amazes me the size fish an Osprey can catch and carry. This the first time I have ever got a picture of one with a Striped Bass of this size. At least someone is getting out in this wind and catching.
  20. The Bass Pro Shop in Hampton Virginia is having their Spring Fishing Classic. This is a great event in which they invite a lot of the local fishing community to come and talk about what else---fishing! In my case, jet ski fishing and photography ( I am not a photographer but I like to take pictures). Luckily they are letting me bring my Yamaha but they still will not let me put it in the big demo tank. I brought it to the store today and it will be on display thru sunday, my talk is at 4:30 on sunday. There are a lot of great speakers the next two weekends so come and show them your support and learn thier tricks!

  21. i was 9 years old fishing with my dad in the indian river inlet catching sea bass and skates, we decided to go back in front of the hotel in ocean city to try to the surf. i ended up catching a flounder. It wasn't a keeper but i was really pumped to catch something from the suds i remember. how about you?
  22. The weather here in central Florida has been mostly cold and unpredictable but the flats fishing has been consistently good. Redfish and black drum have been abundant with most of the fish being found in schools of 25-200 fish. They have been willing to eat a variety of well placed small soft plastics and flies. Both the reds and drum have been feeding in very shallow water and have been extremely spooky. The fish must be approached slowly and quietly with your casts landing at least ten feet away from them. On trips during the latter part of February, clients had shots at hundreds of redfish and drum per day. The catching usually depended on the number of accurate casts that were made. Minnesota residents Jamie and Mike fished Mosquito Lagoon on a cold but sunny day last week. They had shots at schools of redfish throughout the day from 5-30 pounds. A three inch DOA CAL in golden bream color on a 1/8 ounce jighead was the most effective bait and was responsible for at least one double hookup. The following day, the weather took a turn for the worse due to an approaching cold front. Tim and his son Alex decided to give it a try anyway, hoping to beat the worst of the weather. With solid cloud cover, spotting the fish was the biggest challenge and we ran over many of them before we saw them. Eleven year old Alex did catch his first redfish before we elected to get out of the cold and rain. Monday was the only day of good weather this week. The redfish were still plentiful and the three inch CAL was eaten on the first cast of the day. I got to try several new crab flies I had tied and found the reds happy to eat them as well. If the forecast holds true, next week will bring temperatures above 70 every day. If the winds cooperate as well, it should be an excellent week of sight fishing the flats. Small baits like the DOA shrimp and CAL along with crab and shrimp flies will continue to work well. Capt. Chris Myers Orlando Fishing Guide
  23. We have been catching Redfish, Seatrout, and Sheepshead on many charters the last few weeks. Water and air temperatures have remained colder than normal for February. On the flats of Mosquito Lagoon the Redfish are in their winter schools and have gotten used to the cold water temps of upper 40’s to low 50’s F’. We are catching Reds and Seatrout on select size shrimp, live mud minnows and finger mullet. Backcountry trips are targeting Sheepshead in the deeper holes and drop-offs, our mixed bag fishing with many more species of saltwater game fish will return soon as the water will be warming with the arrival of spring in East Central Florida. Pictured are clients Fernando with his Redfish and Gene with a Seatrout. I offer Mosquito Lagoon Flats Fishing trips for Redfish and Seatrout, for the novice or experienced angler alike. I also offer Indian River Backcountry Fishing trips, that is mixed bag fishing for Seatrout, Redfish, Black Drum, Jack Crevalle, Ladyfish, and more. On the average Backcountry trip we catch between 10 and 15 (or more) different species of saltwater fish. This type of trip can be extremely entertaining for beginners or experienced anglers. My boat accommodates from 1 to 4 anglers. Located close to DAYTONA BEACH, NEW SMYRNA BEACH and ORLANDO. Feel free to contact me at any time with questions you may have about my fishing charters.

  24. Lady Pamela II Sportfishing Charters Fort Lauderdale, Florida Fort Lauderdale Fishing - Deep Sea Fishing Charters Ft Lauderdale - Lady Pamela 2 954-761-8045 February 23, 2010 Jim, David, Jesse and three others joined the Lady Pamela II for a shared fishing charter in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. With six different people on board, everybody wants to do something different, so that was our plan. We started with trolling gear in the water, catching King Mackerel and Bonito fish. Then we relocated with live bait looking for a Shark bite and ended up fighting a Warsaw Grouper. Our last pit stop was to a wreck with a live Bonito and a Barracuda ate. What a day. Tight Lines!

  25. Took the Ski over to Chesapeake Virginia and fished The Ditch in the Elizabeth River from 0730-1230. I was in the Cove for two hours with no luck so I moved over closer to the Ditch and had better action. I caught several Speckled Trout and Puppy Drum, all were small with the largest being about 18 inches. I caught one Spec on a jig and the rest live baiting with shiners. Temp was about 31 when I arrived and 45 by the time I left. The sun was out most of the day and so were several other boats and kayaks, I saw a couple other catching but nothing real big. Another great way to spend half a Sunday, can’t wait to get out again. Here are a couple of pictures from today.
