Now That's a BIG Fish!

Sea Drag'n takes some time off the King circuit to enjoy some
inshore action with the red drum in Core Sound.

Now that's a fat red drum!

Needless to say, this one was over 24 lbs and had to go
back in the water. Maybe you'll catch him next year!

Now that was a good day of fishing!
Next King Mackerel tournament is Atlantic Beach.

Tight Lines!

Sea Drag’n Team Wins 4th Place at Onslow Bay Open KMT

The full team competed on Saturday during the Onslow Bay Open KMT. Lauren, Dad, and Brent pulled into Atlantic Beach on Friday night. After some boat repairs and rig tying the crew fell out for a few hours of sleep.
Up and going by 4 am, we headed the bow of the Sea Drag’n toward the bait waters of Core Sound. Two throws of the Calusa’s and the boat floor was slimmed over with menhaden. Dad putting them in the tank as quick as possible and Lauren jumping around trying to keep the slim off her boots. Tanks full, we headed the Sea Drag’n to the fertile waters of the east side. One quick stop near shore and then to the offshore spots.
Fishing was a little slow early on. One small King and two reef donkeys(aka Sharks). At 11:00 am the dinner bell sounded for our fourth place fish. The port downrigger ripped out just as I got ready to check the bait. The line ripped off and drags were squealing. I grabbed the rod and gave it to Lauren and the rest of us went to work clearly the deck.
Lauren was on the bow yelling for us to hurry up because the line was still ripping off. The fish made a good 200-yard run then settled down deep. Fifteen minutes later Lauren had the slab to the surface. Brent reached out into the 4-5 foot seas breaking the surface and sinking the steel in the side of her head. He pulled her over the side and she hit the deck with a thud. Not extra long, but Fat Fat.
We continued fishing for the 40 and 50 lber but it never happened. At 3 pm we packed in it and headed south to Casper’s Marina for the 6 pm weigh in. We unloaded the girl and watched as she pulled the scales to 32.23 lbs and a 4th place finish in our 2nd King Mackerel tournament of the year.
Next up, the Sneads Ferry KMT and hopefully the KingGods will have one waiting for us. Good luck to everyone fishing and be safe.

Mahi Mahi Anyone?

A couple of weekends ago the Sea Drag'n ventured out for a spur of the moment fun fishing trip with some tournament buddies (Hot Grits). We travelled off shore about 40-50 miles to a beautiful spot and found a nice weed line that was loaded with Mahi. The result was one really nice size dolphin and a money bag and cooler full of Mahi. Needless to say, dinner was awesome that night and we have lots of filets in the freezer for the rest of the summer. Take a look a some of the photos.

See you on the water!

Memorial Day Fishing Trip

The Sea Drag’n took its first trip offshore to break in the new motors.

We left out of Wrightsvile Beach around 6:00 am on Monday. We had the lines in the water at around 8:00 am at the same ole hole 62 miles offshore. The water temp was about 80 degrees, but there was no good break. The weeds were scattered and no birds in sight. Action was slow to begin.

We finally got a bite on the long line and put a nice 30 lb. Mahi in the box. The crew fished four more hours with only two short bites. There were lots of boats also in search of something good for grill, but there was little to no action going on.

We headed back inshore for some bottom feeders and picked up a couple of Groupers and let go some nice Snappers. It was great being on the water. Sea conditions were good and the crew had a good time playing tug a war with the bottom feeders.

The Sea Drag'n's motors are officially broke in and running great. The live bait rods are primed and ready to be put on the boat.

Let the 2010 Kingfish season begin!!!
