Wilmington NC Fishing Charter Service Sets the Record Straight on Late Winter and Early Spring Ocean Fishing

Reel Zinger Fishing Charters of Wilmington is one of the most popular choices for full or half-day fishing excursions off the North Carolina Coast. This includes the company hosting both inshore and offshore fishing charter trips. It’s a charter fishing outfit that is led by an experienced captain, Bryce Willis. A man who has seen and heard a lot about what is true and not true regarding fishing in his area of the Atlantic Ocean. One statement that the good captain continuously hears is that fishing in the coastal waters of North Carolina is only good during the warmer months of the year. Something that Captain Bryce wholeheartedly refuted by saying, “We at Reel Zinger Fishing Charters of Wilmington are by no means a seasonal business. Although there are rare times during the winter months when the North Carolina weather does not allow us to go out on the water, on those days we do run charters we usually catch many fish. As a matter of fact, fishing during the colder months has been good to our patrons over the years as we are very skilled at what it takes to find and land fish during the winter and early spring months.”

Captain Bryce continued by saying that other than their customers having to bundle up a little more when fishing in months such as March and April, the fishing is still a lot of fun. Since the Atlantic Ocean water off the North Carolina Coast never really gets super warm, the fish species found there are used to being active when its called. He went on to talk about some of the most popular fish they catch from new year until May. Something that starts with very exciting king mackerel fishing. Many gulfstream fishing charters like them have great success finding and catching these sweet and rich tasting ocean fish species. Also found in good numbers at this time of year are bluefin tuna, blackfin tuna, trout, striped bass, snappers, and redfish. Reel Zinger’s captain mentioned that he’s always happy to discuss with a charter group what type of fish they would like to catch and what species of fish is the best to go after on a particular day.

Customer reviews from those that went on fishing excursions with Reel Zinger in late winter and early spring back up what Captain Bryce stated about fishing during the colder months. Doreen Morales claimed, “What a great experience we had. I will be recommending it to friends. Very safe and very responsible. They put us on fish, and we caught plenty of them to take home. Remarkable knowledge of fishing tactics too. We will be back. Thank you so much for your professional service.” Lynn Boyd stated, “Captain Bryce was great! He was very knowledgeable and taught us a lot about finding our bait and targeting King Mackerel. He put us on a good number of fish and was really great throughout the whole process. Will definitely be back to fish with him again.”

Captain Bryce added that new investments such as a Parker 25' deep V hull with twin outboard motors will get those that a book a charter to the hottest fishing spots faster and recently purchased depth sound and fish-finding equipment will help them find fish quicker once they get there. Safety has also been approved with the addition of new all-weather forward-looking infrared (FLIR) devices. Captain Bryce added that are other nice things about booking half or full day fishing charters with them when the weather is cooler. This includes that those months are some of the least crowded at the beaches near their Wilmington location. That means such things as not having to sit in stop-and-go traffic, not having to wait to eat at restaurants, quiet walks on nearly deserted beaches, and hotel and rental property discounts. Those that would like to know more about fishing with Reel Zinger during such months as March, April, and May can contact Captain Bryce by phone or refer to the company website.
