It has been a great run lately!!!! Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving with their families! Sorry for the lax reports but man, been busy fishing. Morning , afternoon , and my favorite the night trips. We have not been getting tons of bites but the fish we have been landing have been pigs. Some trips getting just a couple bites and some getting 15 -20 bites. We did have two trips where we came up short with no tide and one or two bites and either broke off the fish on the pilings or pulled hooks. Sorry guys. The other trips have been good, landing 2-12 fish. Fish have been averaging in the 30 pound range! We normally catch nice fish this time of year but this is much better than the last few years. We have landed a 40, 40, 41, 42, and today the Hollowell set the bar high with a 50 inch 50lber today!!! That is one of the nicest fish we have landed around the inlet. Also if you can brave the chilly nights the night stuff has been good as well. Most fish have been on eels and a few on the gibbs darter. Been fishing the ledges and bridges. I hope the big fish stay around but who knows. Also been fun to see some other private boats catching a few piggies themselves! Fished the shoals and caught a few but really I try to stay away from them since they are so rough and dangerous and I am becoming more of a wuss the older I get. Special thanks to everyone for fishing hard. Got a few openings next week so give us a call if you wanna go.

Had a half day fishing trip today and yesterday and we caught fish both trips with a 38lber being the biggest. Most of the fish have been really really nice for this time of year 27-38lbs! Really fun fishing now four days straight. Hope it continues and hope to see a few more folks book some trips. There are a few guys that are doing it and we all could use and appreciate the business! Less than $90 a man or woman. I spend more than that at walmart any afternoon! Thanks guys for fishing!!!

Off out again this afternoon with some of the fishing center's crew and a journalist from Raleigh. So you know we are not going to get any bites. Got lucky. Caught a few sheepshead and then had 8 striper bites and got 4 nice fish in the 30lb class to the boat pretty work guys!!! Saw a few more boats lurking about and probably see a few more but hopefully the fish will hold and get better. Give us a call and get rigged up! Thanks Aaron

After over a good week and a half of looking at wind, rain, and beach erosion we finally got a chance to go back out. And of course the name of the party was named Windy. These guys are from Tenn. and had a crappy vacation week with the flooding/ weather debacle and I could not promise good fishing but they were not scared and tried it anyways. They were rewarded with the first nice ocean rock of the season out of Oregon Inlet. We fished the afternoon around the inlet shoals and all. We landed 4 out of 5 fish up to a citation 35lbs! So that is always nice to see some of these nice Rock making it down to NC! Thanks Fellas for fishing! Still got plenty of openings for this upcoming winter season! Thanks Aaron

Still catching fish. Water was 57 degrees. Of course it will warm up some with this favorable weather. I am trying to fill the gaps with some fun tasty, togs and sheephead till a decent sign of stripers show... Also got a few bookings to fish the bay in the upcoming months and the the big pig trout hole is starting to load up as well. Tog are a cold water wreck fish, flounder, tilefish, big blues, speckled trout, reddrum , king, shark are options besides stripers this fall and winter. Ches has some duck hunts on the books as well. You gotta see the pontoon float blind duck death trap he has created. Well we are not going anywhere just gonna fish when we can, eat oysters, and shoot ducks. Feel free to call the house for any info you need. Special thanks everyone for fishing on the Rock Solid and Carolina Blue!
