The billfish action has been consistent the past couple weeks with multiple shots at Marlin each day. Our anglers have fought some nice size Marlin in the mix. Larger females of 500 lb plus have been reported frequently. The Sailfish have come through in greater numbers than expected this time of year, but we’re not complaining. They have been...
The Billfish bite has everyone excited and we’ve had a parade of lucky guests walking the traditional Tropic Star “first billfish” plank. The Marlin bite has been very consistent over the past two weeks with fish in the 350 lb range being the average. Anything over the 500 lb mark was considered a “good” fish. Sailfish have been amongst...

Neuse River Fishing Report June 2018
Weekly Fishing Report – June 5th, 2018 – Neuse River Bait & Tackle The Neuse is looking up, even with the wind and rain that we have had. Lots of fish being caught right now. The Striped bass have migrated back down river from their annual spawn and in big numbers! We all know what that means, topwater excitement! One of...
The bite has been hot the past few days and guests have been taking advantage. Off shore we have had huge shoals of Yellowfin Tuna, (more than we know what to do with in fact) and we have been releasing as many as possible. On the reef, the smaller tuna have been feeding on squid; and the Black Marlin...
Peter Balderas - 34LB and 50Z KING OCP 5-11-18
COBIA - KINGS Have Arrived In Oak Island, NC Most years the first king caught from a N.C. fishing pier is decked at one of the Oak Island piers.  However, for 2018, there is only one pier open at Oak Island instead of the two and three from previous years, so the odds had swung against it.  Who cares about...
  Fishing on the Neuse River has started to improve with days of little wind and higher water temps. Water temps have been holding consistent around 72-75 during the day and dropping to 67-69 at night. Topwater, Topwater, Topwater! With the water temps the way they are, that early morning topwater bite has been awesome. Stripers, Trout, and Drum are committing...

AUSTIN – Texas game wardens recently wrapped up a crackdown on illegal commercial fishing trade along the Texas-Mexico border in the Rio Grande Valley, citing nearly two dozen retail fish dealers for a variety of seafood industry related violations. Operation Dragnet was a multi-agency inspection operation targeting illegal seafood trade, and resulted in issuance of 22 citations and 7 warnings...
I'd like to say that effective on May 1, things will be right again for fishermen seeking cobia and shallow water grouper. I'd like to, but that isn't really the case. The seasons will reopen then - and that's a good thing, but there are new restrictive regulations in place for cobia with more changes being considered. Plus, lowering...
