I will have to say i dont really have the words to describe what happened yesterday. It was one of the best days of my life other then marring my wife Kimber Leigh Sneed. Despite the bad weather conditions and having one of our team members that opted not to make it to Ocracoke to fish the King Fish Cup Championship we called in Jody Gay of Bluewater Candy Tackle Company witch is also one of our top venders at #riggedandreadyfishingcenter. It was a last minute call on Saturday evening and Jody was just leaving his Grandson baseball game. He didn't hesitate to run home and pack his bags. He arrived around 11pm that night and we were up and ready to load the boat by 3:30am. Fishing conditions were extremly tough thru the day with a North East Wind blowing 15 to 20 with gusts over 25 knots. Our first fish of the morning weighed in at 33lbs and we landed 2 more smaller ones thru the day. Around 2pm most all of our bait was looking beat up and terrible except the huge mullets we had in the back live wells. Jody grabbed the monster bait out of the net with both hands and proceeded to put the hooks in her. We all looked at each other and said if that bait gets hit its going to be a full grown one. Last ditch effort to catch a fish. Around 2:30p.m. something horrible happened to that mullet. Lol. The reel started screaming and hit another gear as the fish headed offshore. It was game on from there. Jody faught the fish and I headed the boat offshore in the direction the fish was running. My wife and Jimmy Stubbs cleared lines. Thankfully my wife thought to capture it all on video. It was an epic battle and after only 8 minutes i sunk the gaff into what would be the biggest fish in the tournament weighing in at 48.40lbs. Winning Team Rigged and Ready the Highest pay out in King Mackerel History with a grand total of $127,755.

Paul Nelson from Catawba, Nc reports that the big Bull Drum are feeding on finger mullets in the surf at Holden Beach. Paul is an avid surf fisherman with 40 plus years of fishing under his belt. Mean while back in Charlotte his two sons Matt and Jeremy Nelson are both extremely jealous due to the fact they both cant be here cause they have to go to work in the morning 😂 ... See MoreSee Less

Feels good to be back running trips after Hurricane Florence. Took some of my best clients #wahoo fishing today aboard Rigged and Ready's #31competition. We went 4 for 7 on the hoos, landed 3 #mahi, 2 #kingmackerel and a few other fish trolling the break in 145ft water. We have open dates next tuesday and Wednesday and the weather looks perfect. Call to find out details. #riggedandreadycharters 910-448-3474 #riggedandreadybaitandtackle 910-448-0210 @ Rigged & Ready Fishing Center ... See MoreSee Less

Wow how many miles out?

Ran an overnight commercial trip with @tylerblake10 and @fin_fisher_charter_services and we crushed the fish. They were chewing on about every stop. We caught Big beeliners and trigger fish for 15 hrs straight, took a power nap and came back in to unload fish. ... See MoreSee Less

I would love to go on a commercial over night trip. Fish all night, catch amazing fish, and the stories. Bet fishing deep water at night is fun

Y'all did wayyyy better than us haha.. Still had a fun trip. We all had big boy hook ups that were break offs. Sharks or big rays. Note.. Coffee colored water is a bad sign in the ocean. Lol

Certainly left an impact on us!

The surf fishing is hot right now. Great customers sent me these picks of their catches this evening. @hr18181818 said he lost count with well over 20 fish in just a few hours. The store will open at 7am tomorrow morning. #riggedandreadybaitandtackle 910-448-0210 or 910-842-3474 @ Rigged & Ready Fishing Center ... See MoreSee Less

Enjoyed a beautiful morning on the ocean with Tim and Phylis from Wadesboro, NC. The fishing was great and hangin out with this crew was even better. The Spanish Mackerel are thick outside Lockwood inlet and so are the Hamerhead Sharks. Open dates next week. 910-448-3474 @ Rigged & Ready Fishing Center ... See MoreSee Less
