Fishing Report

Check back for the latest updates from Captain Jake.

Spring fishing is here!!

Emerald Isle and Swansboro North Carolina's marshes are full of pretty slot sized Red Drum this spring!

The Red Drum are schooled up thick in the Swansboro and Emerald Isle marshes. They can be found any where from just east of the Emerald Isle Bridge to the other side of base. The fish are hungry and on the prowl. They will eat anything you throw at them, once you find them. I have had the most success on the 3 inch gulp shrimp and cut mullet. 

The Black Drum bite has been steady as well. Finding these pretty fish in the creeks and rivers on oyster rocks and dock pilings using frozen shrimp or mullet to catch them.  

The Blue fish should be showing up any week now!! I hope the real big ones come in again!! 


Give me a call or send me a booking request to catch these fish up before the weather gets hot and the fish break up into smaller groups!!

Swansboro North Carolina is the best place to find Red Drum!
