Default Holden Beach Fishing

Will be at Holden Beach from tonight through August 1st with the boat and 3 kayaks. If there is anyone interested in getting together for some fishing, pm me, post here, or hit me up on the cell - 919-280-1858. Oh yea, or for a brew as well.

Doesn't look too great for getting offshore based on current forecast, but I will be trying if the wind stays down a bit. If not, I'll be inshore fishing.

Always looking to fish with someone, my boat or yours. OIB, Long Beach or Holden Beach area.

Heading down Tuesday of next week be there through the weekend. I have my fingers crossed that the wind changes a little. Will be fishing out of OIB through Shallotte inlet unless SW wind then Little River Inlet. Boat name Natalie/Claire Ch 11.

Winds were still pretty stiff. Heard lots of chatter on the radio from British warships practicing live fire somewhere within radio range. Advising to stay five miles away from them. Heard US warship today. I wish I remember the names of the ships. Hate to say it by we didn't catch much.........good luck. We will be back down this coming weekend. Might try up towards the Cape Fear area this trip.

We tried offshore saturday, first at a nearshore AR where we actually marked a few things on the finder (but not bites), then pushed off to lighthouse rocks where we saw nothing, nada. skunked for the day.

We spent sunday in shallote inlet catching a dinners worth of spots.

We had a good weekend tuning our new boat .... with no fish to distract us

Tried to go to Wrightsville on Saturday to see family. There were 3-5 foot waves/swells in the Cape Fear, so I turned around 8 miles shy of Snow's Cut.

Caught a couple of decent sized drum Sunday near Shallotte River and the ICW.

Nothing Monday fishing the Shallotte Inlet, or trolling for Spanish around the sea buoy. It was rougher than it looked out in the ocean. Hopefully the front that moved across the area late today smoothed out the seas a bit for tomorrow.

That's what knocked out my power steering couple of weeks ago. We were coming back from fishing CBI, tide going down the river, 20kts S wind coming up it beat the crap out us. But at least know I know the boat can still handle pretty well in rough stuf with no power steering. It was a loooong ride from Snow's Cut back to the ramp though.

Hope it lays down for ya the rest of the week. I went down this past weekend but didn't even take the boat. Good luck.

Yea, the Cape Fear River can be very rough in any kind of wind, especially if you have a tide running in the opposite direction.

Current forecast for the next few days look fishable. Hope to make it to the 90s and Christina's Ledge in the morning.
Channel 16, 6, or 69. Give a shout out if you are out there.
