Spanish and Blue at Wrightsville Beach

Postby Current Adventure Charter » Sun May 18, 2008 12:44 pm

On Saturday, May 17, I had the pleasure of having Gregg Boots and his family aboard for a day of fishing. Dispite slow conditions due to a passing weather front, we managed to have a good day of fishing.

We started off the morning trolling along the beach for Spanish Mackerel and Bluefish, while waiting for the ocean to lay down so that we could venture a little further offshore to target some King Mackerel. It didn't take long for us to find a school of fish and get the rods to bending. We put out a spread of clark spoons, maria jigs and the old faithful Spanish straws. Two lines were fished on the top of the water column and two were fished down with the help of a #1 planner. All lines produced fish, but the deeper lines seemed to be most productive.

Around 10:00, the ocean starting to calm down and we eased our way out to the Dallas Rock area. Once on scene, we pulled in the hardware and started to slow troll dead cigar minows. It didn't take long for a strike and Greg's son Alex was soon doing battle with 3-1/2' Atlantic Sharpnose shark. This was Alex's first time saltwater fishing and the expressions on his face were priceless when he realized that he was hooked up with a shark!! Seeing the look on his face reminded me of why i enjoy this job so much.

We ended up the day trolling back close to the beach catching more Spanish and Bluefish. A great time was had by all and I am looking forward to having the Boots family on board again in the future.
