What a wonderful day this was. Joining me was Sherry and two kids Arron and Leigh from Boling Springs, NC. These kids just wanted to go have fun and catch some fish. So that’s what we did. Loaded up and headed out about 7 miles to a spot I had fished a few days ago. This time I brought along some light inshore tackle so that we could have some serious fun with the Sharks that seem to be everywhere right now. I will have to admit this was the first time the kids had really ever fished in the Ocean before and they did great. We were hooked up with fish from the time we arrived to the time we decided to leave.. Half Day nearshore fishing is great way to introduce ocean fishing to kids for the first time.
Today I had a family from Charlotte join me in on what was supposed to be a inshore red fishing trip. We left the dock at 8 am and the live well was full of bait and the tide was just right. Ran down the river and started fishing in areas that hold red fish. Around 11 am I was starting to get worried, we had not had one bite from a fish.. The wind started to pick up and was blowing a steady 20 knots and it was beginning to get a little tough to fish in certain areas. We decided to go fish the canals in Holden Beach to escape the wind. Once we arrived it wasnt 5 minutes and we were hooked up with a flounder. We continued to fish the canals and ended the day hooking 4 flounder and boating 3. Tough day but ended it well..
