Anyone have the coordinates for the shark hole off of oak island? I was told it is about 20 milts from oak island light tower and some good king and mahi have been around that area is that a good place to start?

This is my first year salt water fishing and having a boat and all i am catching is croaker, very few spanish and nothing else. This is very frustrating as a fisherman to not have any luck at all when going out. Really feel like i am wasting money in gas and bait, and not catching anything.

"sharkhole" is 15 mi rocks. Check it out on supermap. Quite a few numbers for 15 mi rocks on there. Good bottom fishing there in the early spring, fall, and winter, good kings, mahi, jacks and cobia this time of year. Let me know if u can't find the 15 mi rocks in supermap. There is also 18 mi rocks and horseshoe that are good. Good luck

Good Luck! And welcome to offshore fishing. I fish out of Oak Island year around and will be glad to help you as much as I can.

Some great advice I have seen before, is to hire a captain and have them come aboard your boat, and show you what to do with YOUR equipment/boat.

You can go back to back days at the same spot and catch fish one day, and get skunked the next. Gotta be where the fish are..

Last week I fished the 20 mile range and easily limited on kings, then fished the 20 mile range maybe 8 miles to the south with not a nibble until working deeper.

I have tried to learn what times of the year which fish bite the best, in which areas, and keep notes of this.

So i guess an easier question. I have a 20ft pioneer islander w/ 150. Boat is brand new. where would be a good place to start fishing. I have 4 tld 25 set up on boat. I have sea witches and pirates plugs for now.

As stated above. Since the early 90's during the summer
the 15 mile rock has always been my starting point, and
the majority of the time if I troll the 15 mile rock to the 18
mile rock we would the majority of the time put fish in the
boat. Got to mark the fish, and set your lines to the
depth they are holding. The simple pink pirate plug with
cigar minnows will put fish in the boat. Do not get hung up
staying in one place if you are not marking fish or getting runs.

The Mark button is a valuable tool to use. See something of
value push it for later use.

A good starting point for summer trolling is 15 mi rocks. then work out toward 18 mi rocks. Always always, keep an eye on ur depth finder while trolling in those areas, mark good bottom areas you can hit in the fall and winter. Horseshoe is the next place i would explore after the rocks. It isn't much further out of the cape fear just a different bearing.

Please don't get frustrated, you have to put in alot of time on the water to learn when and where the fish will be. Also try to soak up as much knowledge as possible from the old salts who have been doing this all their lives. Like someone mentioned earlier in this thread, start a fishing log book (make note of temps, water conditions, wind, current, locations, etc etc) Fish ON!!!!

Capt Brant at OIB fishing center does what he calls fishing schools. Excellent way to learn some basic points for a reasonable amount of $. Call the store, he is advertising some now for next few weeks.

I did well on Spanish mackerel on the way to 15 mile rock on Saturday. Still no king or mahi with pirate plugs and sea witches with cigar minnows. Is bottom fishing good at 15 mile rock I see the water seems to have a nice drop there.

Its a good live bottom. You'll have to pick at them.
move around watching your sonar till you find them hold up.

Keep going, keep trying new stuff, fish on other people's boats, take other people with you, you'll learn.

We had a learning curve where we'd have more bad days than good ones, and every so often one sneaks in. It's all about learning multiple approaches and having back up plans so that when option A doesn't work, maybe option B will. But if you keep doing the same thing and not having much luck at it, you're either doing it wrong or doing it in the wrong place.
