Fishing Reports

Fishing is hot on the Crystal Coast!

Captain Chris Kimrey - Friday, July 07, 2017

There's no denying that the bite has been going off in recent weeks here on the Crystal Coast! The beautiful weather, with just a few windy and raining days, have made for great fishing. At Mount Maker Charters, we have the pleasure of taking people out for a fishing trip they'll never forget! Our two boats - a 24' Pathfinder v-bottom and a 17.6' Jones Brothers skiff - allow us to fish anywhere from the Neuse River to Bogue Sound and out into the ocean.

So, what has Mount Maker been catching lately?

Check out some of our fishing photos below of our exciting days out on the water! For our inshore and river fishing trips, we've been catching lots of Redfish. Our ocean trips have been full of King Mackerel, Grouper, Dolphin, Amberjacks and even a few sharks! We set out from our dock in Atlantic Beach to fish the surrounding waters in search of lots of fish and a great time!

When heading out on the water, there are a couple of things we recommend that you bring with you to make your day more enjoyable. The heat and sun are powerful, especially when you're on the water all day. Bring sunglasses, a hat and sunscreen! UV protective clothing or performance shirts are a great way to keep the sun off of you while remaining cool. You'll want to make sure you bring some snacks and drinks in a small cooler as room on the boat is limited. If you have any questions regarding your upcoming fishing trip or if you'd like to book a trip with Mount Maker Charters, give Capt. Chris a call!
