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. 

Give me a call to book your Swansboro or Emerald Isle fishing charter! (252) 670-4523 or email me at
