Saturday, November 20, 2010    Kure reports a very nice showing of Virginia Mullets and Croakers at night. Trout, Red Drum and Flounders reports are coming in from the Cape Fear River.     Nice weather! Stay Tuned!  Gas prices, $2.85 and up. Tide table     

Friday, November 12, 2010    Very few and far between this week on fishing catching. Of the best catches, 18 inch Virginia Mullets.

Stay Tuned!  Gas prices, $2.72 and up. Tide table   

Tuesday, November 9, 2010    Happy Birthday to someone special! :) This past weekend we had some seasoned fishermen staying with us. Oops! By seasoned I do not mean they smelled. Nine Foot Shark Caught, Photoed and released by neighbor fishermen. The next day, these guys hooked into something that was un-land-able. Their large-ought fishhook bent.     Bluefish, Virginia Mullets, Spots, Croakers and one Red Drum was reported over the past 3 days. Many other fishermen were very frustrated by the small amount of fish in their coolers.     Stay Tuned!  Gas prices, $2.72 and up. Tide table  

Saturday, November 6, 2010    Bluefish and Virginia Mullet reports are coming in from several sets of fishermen. Last night and this morning we had several reports of small sized Spots. Winds are very slow, switching back & forth between northeast and southwest. Stay Tuned!  Gas prices, $2.63 and up. Tide table  

Friday, November 5, 2010    Slight south-west wind moving around town at 5 pm. Surf has several folks giving fishing a try. Stay Tuned!  Gas prices, $2.63 and up. Tide table  

Tuesday, November 2, 2010    Gas prices have dropped!     Strong northeast wind has blown over the past 24 hours. Too strong for many. Yesterday several large Virginia Mullets were reported just north of our shop. Temperature at 2 pm around 58 degrees. Stay Tuned!  Gas prices, $2.58 and up. Tide table  

Monday, October 25, 2010    Today several moderate rain showers fell. Lightning and all the workings. Rowan County Fisherman and his wife reported the 22 inch Red Drum they caught today.    Winds are back out of the south again. :( Stay Tuned!  Gas prices, $2.78 and up. Tide table  

Saturday, October 23, 2010    For us, Flounder catches have been the number one catch this week. Southwest wind and recent "Heavy Rains" may have attributed to the recent increase. State Park Boat Ramp at Carolina Beach has reopened. $3.5 million according to local TV news station WECT-TV6. Going on 18 hours or more, winds are blowing from the northeast 2 to 15 knots.  Stay Tuned!  Gas prices, $2.78 and up. Tide table  

Tuesday, October 19, 2010    Bay fishermen from Salisbury hit the jackpot last night. The "Flounder Jackpot" so to speak. Many are over 20 inches in length. Between the three men, 24 Flounder is the maximum count per day. Mullet minnows were/are running abundant in the bay. Here in town, Mud Minnows are doing a good number hooking Flounders.  While these gentlemen were giving their report another fisherman and his wife/witness reported he hooked two large size Pompanos at the very same time! While he was fighting the two monsters, a Sea Hawk circled around and swooped down and took one fish off his hands!      Since the state park at Snow's Cut is still closed we have no news from that location.    Stay Tuned!  Gas prices, $2.76 and up. Tide table 

Monday, October 18, 2010    Southwest winds are not hampering Flounder catches! Several Fishermen came in looking for Mud Minnows. One of Flounders favorite meals.  There is a Spot shortage along the east coast. Fish houses are asking us for fishing reports. Historically speaking, the probability of catching Spot increases when there is a High pressure dome over the states of Illinois, Ohio or Kentucky.  This will create northeast wind directions along the Carolina Coast. We should have some news tomorrow regarding the Carolina Beach Fishing Tournament. < click Stay Tuned!     Gas prices, $2.76 and up. Tide table 

Saturday, October 16, 2010    Well we woke up to cooler weather. Winds were blowing out of the northeast around 6 knots. Fishing tournament underway in Carolina Beach. Last night we dressed 100 lbs of large roe mullets.   Stay Tuned!     Gas prices, $2.76 and up. Tide table 

Wednesday, October 13, 2010    Many an empty freezer! Southwest wind has damper on catching fish. List night I spoke with a commercial dealer whose in search of fish. Local are not too happy with their catches either.      Stay Tuned!     Gas prices, $2.74 and up. Tide table

Friday, October 7, 2010    This past week Flounder made a good showing on the surf. Live Mud Minnows are getting the better results. Warm weather has returned. Stay Tuned!     Gas prices, $2.69 and up. Tide table

Saturday, September 25, 2010    Another very warm day as winds blew steady from the southwest. Several fishermen reported they caught one to two Flounders today. Others were enjoying the water.
