Spring has sprung and you know what that means, the fishing is on fire! If you’re in the Wilmington, North Carolina area and want to get in on some deep sea fishing action, wait no more and book your charter with Jeannie D Sport Fishing today!
Offshore fishing off the coast of North Carolina is an experience unlike any other and the Spring of 2018 is no better time to do it! With the Gulf Stream only a measly 15 miles out, you’ll be fishing in one of the most explosive marine habitats in the world. Teeming with life, the Gulf Stream offers incredible catches from mahi-mahi, false albacore, bonita, king mackerel and more!
Trolling for King Mackerel is an adrenaline pumping good time. When hooked, these fish take off like a rocket, peeling off line at an incredible rate. For this reason, larger kings are referred to as smokers. Right now the king fishing is smoking! Trolling Yo-zuri lures within the 15 to 26 mile mark, which puts us in the Gulf Stream, is producing a solid kingfish bite. Hold on!
There’s nothing quite as exciting as a topwater bite and the bonita and false albacore are heavy hitters when it comes to exploding on the surface of the water. These topwater explosions often times ignite a feeding frenzy in which you can expect to have hook ups on all the lines in the water. This is an exciting time as many anglers will bring in fish after fish after fish.
Then there’s mahi. These beautifully colored green and blue fish are one of the most sought after deep sea fish in the North Carolina and Outer Banks areas. Not only are they a blast to catch with their acrobatic aerial displays once they’re hooked, but their firm, white meat is some of the best table fare around. Once you find one, there are more typically schooling around so keep your lines wet and ready and trust your captain to put you on the beat!
