May 2020 Fishing Report

Fishing in the coastal waters around Emerald Isle and Swansboro was excellent during the month of May and June has started the same way!

We have been catching fish from the ocean to the internal waters around Emerald Isle and Swansboro recently.   

The Red Drum bite has remained excellent over the last few weeks.Most of these fish are falling for live mullet and cut menhaden fished on carolina rigs but we have been catching some on Topwater and Gulp baits on the Fathom Inshore jig heads when the wind is not blowing.  There has been a decent number of Flounder mixed in with the Red Drum and they have been mainly falling for the same Gulp baits fished on Fathom jig heads.  The Flounder have been all catch and release as our season is closed until August. 

The Sheepshead bite has been getting better with the warmer weather! These fish have been eating fiddler crabs fished right next to bridge and dock pilings on light carolina rigs.

The Ocean has had a lot to offer here recently from King and Spanish Mackerel, Bluefish, Flounder, Sea Bass, Amberjack, Grey Trout and the occasional Mahi within 10 miles of the inlet. The majority of these fish have been falling for live menhaden either fished on the surface or on the bottom.

3/12/20 Report... Speckled Trout!

Last week I had Cole and Diane Becker on board for a awesome afternoon of crushing the Speckled Trout on artificial baits.  Cole and I landed over 30 Speckled Trout and a few Redfish in about 3.5 hours of fishing!!  

The Spring Speckled Trout fishing is only going to get better as the weather continues to warm up.

Give me a call to get out on the water!

Winter 2020 Fishing

Winter is here and fishing in North Carolina around Emerald Isle and Swansboro is "On Point" right now. 

We have been mainly targeting Redfish on the flats, this can be some exciting sight fishing this time of year.  The water is crystal clear and the fish are schooled up on the flats.

On most days the Speckled Trout fishing has been excellent as well, the warmer afternoons have been producing the most fish as they come to the shallows and feed aggressively.

Some of the deeper mainland creeks have been producing both Red and Black drum. These fish are being caught on carolina rigs fished with shrimp.

Winter Black Sea Bass fishing is also excellent within a few miles of Bogue Inlet right now as well!  There are some nice Grouper mixed in with the Sea Bass but they are catch and release only until May.

Give me a call to get out and do some Winter fishing. Winter days can be some of the best fishing of the year! 

We are also selling Gift Certificates, these make the perfect gift for any occasion!

Give me a call at (252) 670-4523 or email onpointfishingcharters@gmail.com to book your Swansboro or Emerald Isle Fishing Charter!

September 2019 Report

Fishing has been fantastic here in the Swansboro and Emerald Isle areas for the month of August and early September!  We have been catching Spanish Mackerel, King Mackerel, Speckled Trout, Red Drum, Flounder, Grey Trout, Grouper, Sea Bass, and much more!!  We are starting to see some cooler weather which means Fall fishing is right around the corner.  Speckled Trout  and King Mackerel fishing is only going to get better as the water cools!  The Redfish have already started to stack up in the surf zones, this can be some excellent fishing when the weather cooperates!  Fall is my favorite time of year to fish.  You don't want to miss out on this action.
