Good Day Offshore

August 8th, 2012 by Patrick Bryant


Here’s some pics from a recent day offshore of Holden Beach, North Carolina. The fish are biting everywhere. Half Days are very productive when the weather cooperates. Most days consist of Spanish Mackeral, King Mackeral, Bluefish, Mahi Mahi, and some Large Sharks.
The offshore fish such as Grouper, Black Sea Bass, Snapper, and Pompano are also chewing. Just look at the pics to see. Come lets go fishing! This is Holden Beach charter fishing at its best.

Carolina Beach King Mackeral Tourney

July 18th, 2012 by Patrick Bryant

Had a great time fishing with some old friends this weekend in the Carolina Beach Got em On King Mackeral Tournament.  The crew on the Twister consisted of Captain Zack, Captain Derek, Brandon Garner, and myself.  We caught lots of kings, just not the 57 pounder it took to win the tournament.  Our biggest fish was around 20 pounds and we decided not to run all the way to Carolina Beach to weigh a fish we didn’t think would make the money.  Our decision was right because it took around 24 pounds to get in the $$$. 

The fish are definately biting.  Whether you want to hang inshore and catch loads of nice fillet size Spanish and some big sharks, head 20 miles out and tackle some King Mackeral, or head out where I like to fish in the 40 mile range and catch no telling what, now is the time.   Give me a call or email and lets book a day.

1/2 Day Spanish and Sharks

July 18th, 2012 by Patrick Bryant

Had a full day but decided to stay close to shore due to the large thunder boomers that were offshore. The spanish were still biting strong. It didn’t take long to catch enough for dinner and head to find the sharks. Captain Zack said the Medium size Spinner Sharks were biting good and he also caught one nice Black tip, around 100 pounds.


Fish are biting in July

July 18th, 2012 by Patrick Bryant

July has definately been a great month for fishing. The king mackeral have shown up in large numbers and we are taking advantage of this. Most days we have been catching 5-8 kings ranging from 10-30 pounds, with a few nice Mahi Mahi and cobia to throw in with the mix. Inshore the Spanish and Sharks have been eager to eat spoons and filets. If you would like a great trip come on down with Twister Charters


Offshore Trip

July 9th, 2012 by Patrick Bryant

Even though Twister Charters has been doing a lot of half day fishing, we still have managed to make it offshore.  Here are some pics from a recent trip.  We had great success on Blacksea Bass, Amberjack, Cobia, and Beeliners.   Check out the Cobia on this link.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IsbQv7yTjWo&feature=channel&list=UL

Offshore Bowfishing

July 9th, 2012 by Patrick Bryant

I had a great opportunity to take the guys from Priefiert’s Backwoods Bloodlines, a hunting tv show that is on the Sportsman Channel,  on a offshore Bowfishing adventure.  These guys are from Kentucky and love Bowhunting.   They called me and wondered if I could put them on some sharks.  I quickly said probably, but I guarantee that we can have a great time offshore shooting several different species of large fish, including Amberjack, Cobia, Barracuda, Mahi Mahi, and maybe a large shark.  We were both pumped up that they headed down to Holden Beach.  That morning we left from Provision Company and headed out.  We started our day by catching a live well full of  bait and headed offshore in search of something that would give us some close shots.  Once arriving at the offshore grounds it didn’t take long to get the fish schooled up under the boat.  Over the next few hours the guys had great success shooting and harvesting several large Amberjack and getting some shots at Cobia, but never could connect.  The Crazyness started when all of a sudden a nice 10′ Tiger shark appeared out of nowhere.  I guess all that blood from the Amberjack, had him coming in for an easy meal.  The guys shot at the large fish several times, but the shark was a little to deep for the arrows to find their mark.  It’s kinda decieving  when a fish that large is five feet under the water, it seems like it’s right under the surface,. thus giving an easy shot.  Even though we didn’t get a chance at the big rascal, it was a learning experience for all parties.  I hope the guys will come back again, they are welcome on the Twister anytime.  Next time I think they will have beefed up their equipment and I might have a few new tactics that will help them land “Jaws”.  The show is going to air sometime in October.  I will be sure to post the dates so everyone can watch.  I’ll be waiting myself!!!

From Argentina to Holden Beach

June 6th, 2012 by Patrick Bryant

Even though Brother Alex is getting married this weekend, he had some time to squeeze in a last minute fishing trip with Capt. Zack and friends from Mendoza, Argentina.  It was their first time out in the Atlantic, but by the looks of it, they figured out what to do pretty quickly.  The crew consisted of Gabrielle Bloise, Sillvana Biasutti, Facundo Bonamaizon and Letician Lujan.  They had a nice catch of Scamp Grouper, Cobia, and Black Sea Bass. The fish definitely biting, so come on down and lets go fishing.
