April 2019 Fishing Report

With the warming temperatures the fish are chewing in the inshore and nearshore waters around Emerald Isle and Swansboro!

Sight fishing for Redfish is has been excellent in the back waters of Swansboro and Emerald Isle! We have been catching plenty of Bluefish as well while fishing for Red Drum and Speckled Trout.  A few bonus Flounder are starting to show up, these should only become more abundant all Summer long! 

The Cobia should be showing up any day now with the water temperatures warming up  and right behind them should be Amberjack, Spanish Mackerel, more Flounder, Sheepshead, Black Sea Bass, Grey Trout and too many more species to name.

Winter Fishing Report

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 trip!

Late Summer Fishing 2018

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, Mahi Mahi 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 will start to stack up in the surf zones over the next few weeks.  Fall is my favorite time of year to fish.  You don't want to miss out on this action. 

We have also been fishing for Giant Trophy Redfish in the Neuse River on both artificial lures and dead baits.  This is the time of year to catch a Redfish of a lifetime!! These fish have all been ranging from 25-50lbs!  Fishing for Giant Trophy Redfish on the Neuse River with Popping Corks is a absolute adrenaline rush.  You have got to experience the fight of one of the massive Redfish atleast once in your lifetime!!!

Give me a call to book your Swansboro, Neuse River, or Emerald Isle Fishing Charter !
