Now is a great time for bottom fishing the offshore waters off of southeastern North Carolina, with mahi-mahi, cobia, grouper and various bottom fish hitting well. Captain Keith Logan of Feedin Frenzy Charters out of Holden Beach has been reporting fantastic fishing.
On Saturday he took out George Hill, Larry Gilmore, Ben Harmon, Derrick Martin, Xavier Crawford, all of Winston Salem and “DJ” Jones of Walnut Cove, NC on a full day venture.
“We headed out about 40 miles to start the day,” said Logan. “For the next couple of hours we caught our limit of big black sea bass, trigger fish, vermilion snapper, pinky, white grunts, and gag grouper. We also caught a few nice size shark that we released. While we were bottom fishing a 30 lb cobia swam by the boat looking around, so we got a pitch bait out and it was on for the next 10 minutess. We boated the cobia and along came the mahi-mahi. We end up putting four mahi-mahi in the boat on cut bait and squid. We end up with around 300lbs of bottom fish.”
“The seas were nice so we headed out about 40 miles to start the day,” said Logan. “When we got there we put the lines out and trolled around for about 30 minutes then a mahi hit a green/yellow Pirate Plug with a cigar minnow (from Capt Bob of South Chatham Tackle). We trolled around a little longer with no other hit, then we picked the lines and moved to a ledge to do some bottom fishing. For the next couple of hours we caught our limit of around 300 lbs of bottom fish.”
Sounds like Captain Logan and Feedin Frenzy Charters are having great action.
