ProFishNC Charters Winter Fishing Update 1/27/2015

I want to update everyone on Winter Fishing Carters as many anglers don’t know the fishing opportunities this time of year of either Offshore Bottom-Fishing or Cape Fear River Striped Bass Fishing!Winter Fishing Charters

Winter Ocean Bottom-Fishing Charters:

If Black Seabass is on your bucket list or dinner menu, you are in luck as they are currently very thick on every ledge, reef and rock within the 5 mile range (and big ones too!).  If the conditions are right, we catch limits of Black Seabasss on many of our winter bottom-fishing charters (they are really that prevalent right now).

We do a lot of bottom-fishing charters in the winter months due to the productivity of the Black Seabass, Reef Complex Species and Green Eye Sharks a/k/a spiny dogfish a/k/a the most used fish in the traditional “Fish and Chips” recipe.

Cape Fear River Striped Bass Fishing Charters:

The Cape Fear River offers some of the best Striped Bass Fishing in NC during the winter time months.  Many days we catch over 10 stripers on a 1/2 day fishing charter.   Stripers in the Cape Fear River feed on both dead bait, live bait and artificial baits thus on our trips we fish many tactics until we dial in the feeding pattern for the day.Seabass 1

Fishing Forecast:

The river and nearshore bottom fishing will continue to be strong and the best fishing in our area until spring when the bait migration moves up our coast!

Give me a call and lets go fishing this winter!
