Minnesott Beach Fishing Reports

Mid May Report

I know it’s been awhile since I have posted. Hopefully I have enough to give a good report of current conditions.

One of my new customers has been bringing his kids in and getting them into fishing. He sent me their first fish pics and man those two guys are proud of their catches. If dad keeps them going, they will grow up to be avid fishermen one day.

Now I have been out twice looking cobia and struck out, plenty of sharks though and beautiful Spanish. Then I get a picture sent to me from a good friend of his dad vacationing from PA on Atlantic Beach with his surf catch of a 30” fish – oops he had to release it. But he did better than myself.

Did have a nice weigh at shop with Dale Walls 35lb cobia caught Wednesday at the Cape. Said he lost other larger fish due to his light leaders. OOPS.

I have sold out of my custom cobia jigs but more coming Tuesday. Check them out on my store stuff and can ship quantity at 4.95 anywhere.

Had a great trip Friday with Mike and his son Kyle in the Neuse. My job was to put Kyle (8 years old) on his first drum. Not as easy to do this year as you expect. Well, we went to one of my favorite spots and did manage to get him 3 trout, 2 on DOA Deadly Combo and the 24 ½” fish on fresh mullet on a circle hook. When it hit, I hoped it was the drum we had wanted but wow – when I saw that fish come to the top – I new the kids first fish would be a citation (24” release). He was tickled as well as myself and his dad. Worked several other areas hard with 1 needle fish and 1 croaker. He left me to head to Camp Seafare for the weekend and brag about his catch.

Rock has still been producing in New Bern. Some nice fish coming back from spawn. May hold up a few weeks weather dependent.

I have increased my DOA selection lately, come check out the baits of choice. Pick up a TFO rod to fish these with too. Put it in your hand and you wont believe how light and great action they have.

My charter bookings are picking up so call or email soon if you would like to target any of my fisheries. I Guarantee FUN.

Be Safe on the water – there will be a lot of folks out this coming weekend with a lot not know all the rules and respect.
