CarolinaExplorer 6/25 fishing report: We are catching red drum, flounder, sheepshead, black drum, spanish mackerel, sharks and various outhers. Cal...

Hello everyone.  We have had some crazy weather over the past few weeks. It is cooler than normal and the seas have been choppy way to long. Most of our trips have been inshore due to sea conditions, calm water and plenty of fishing fun. We have had to dodge a few rain showers as well. Now the report. Inshore we have been catching plenty of red drum on jigs with gulp or soft plastics. We have had a few top-water bites as well. We just need calm winds to find the fish on the flats. We have been targeting the oyster beds and drop offs for most of the fish. Some tailing fish have been caught on the extreme high tides in the grass. When floating shrimp and minnows we have landed reds, black drum, sheepshead, and a few flounder. Whatever it takes to get some fish on the hook is our game plan. No matter the how hard the wind blows we can always fish the calm inshore waters and catch fish.


The coastal trips have landed Spanish mackerel trolling clark spoons or casting to fish feeding on the surface. The flounder and a few gray trout have been landed on live minnows around the wrecks and reefs just off the beach. A few sharks have been caught as well. On a surprise note, we landed several trophy class red drum last week, one 41 inch and a 43 inch fish. What a blast catching these beast on light tackle.  They were photographed and released in quickly to keep them healthy.  I have plenty of pics of the big ones, they are on my phone at the bottom of the ocean. Yes I dropped my phone with all those killer pics in the water. On a good note, I have the pics on Facebook. So go to Carolina Explorer Inshore Fishing Charters on Facebook and like the pics. If you or your family would like a great fishing experience, give me a call today and book your fishing charter 910-264-1807.

Sharks are biting and lots of fun to catch. More of this to come with calm seas.


As you can see we are catching plenty of fish and having great days on the water. Calm water and plenty of action. If we can’t get on the ocean due to sea conditions, we will fish inshore and have a blast. Give me a call today at 910-264-1807 to book your fishing charter.


Thanks Capt. Robert Schoonmaker
