    Oak island report?

    I came down to Oak Island and stayed 4/29 to 5/2 we caught a few whiting on fishbites and a dog fish here n there. We will be back down May 28 through june 4 just wondering how the surf fishing is these last few weeks. I went back to Barbee street dock and threw my net for an hour or so with only a few pin fish to show any bait showing up yet? Ill post each day how it goes for me here. Ill be staying on Caswell beach in mid june never fished it befor how is it?

    WilliP...Fished yesterday from the point in Oak Island from 7am to 4pm. Hooked up to more garbage can sized rays than anything. I did catch a few 3-4 foot sharks on my drum set ups baited with blue and whiting heads. They were dredging the main channel about 200 yards from me so that could be another reason for all the rays. I think you will do ok with the yak if you stay away from the dredge. I caught blues, whiting, rays, short flounder, and sharks. It was a slow day but had enough pullage to keep me interested.

    Try Oak Island Sporting Goods, the tackle shop on Oak Island Dr close to where you come onto the island. They had them the last time I was in there.

    Damn storms ran us off had to cut our trip short. Headed down to the surf with fishbites and caught nothing. Then a massive school of pogies started down the beach sent my son running for the cast net while i was snagging a few with a gotcha plug. I probably caught 200 or 300 in the castnet then it was on we i couldnt keep lines in the water we caught 2 huge lady fish 2 bonnet head sharks a big blue and had a ray on the size of my truck hood i lost him in the wash. I got about 100 more pogies on ice about to head down to the beach and try again.

    Was down on Caswell Beach last Saturday and can attest to the bait fish in the surf. The birds were having a hey day and saw several fishermen out there with their cast nets and boats so close to the beach you could almost touch them. Didn't see the fishermen catching much other than little sharks, but sounds like the other fish were out there. Will be back next weekend and plan on hitting the surf hard.

    Ill be back next saturday myself ill be staying on caswell this time. I caught another monster skate on a mud minnow. 5 whitting on fishbites bloodworm chartreuse and a short flounder yesterday. Seems the chartruse is the ticket flavour didnt matter we didnt catch a thing on any other color but bring some with you its hard to find on the island
