Bud Wegner

Member since June 2016 Emerald Isle, United States
Background
Capt Bud Wegner has been plying these waters for more than 20 years, so if you have questions, ask them. Like most fishermen, he will share with you what he knows and might embellish on things he doesn’t. Just remember the journey to and from the fishing grounds can be as exciting as the fishing itself. He loves to teach new people, so come down and meet him for a great fishing adventure.
Techniques
Most all of our fishing is weather dependent. When the winds and seas are low, we run to the oceanfront and fish the nearshore reefs and wrecks for a number of species. We might troll light tackle or drift fish the bottom, jigging lures to catch fish. We can also bottom fish to target specific species. We also follow the fishing trawlers, when our customers want to target larger predatory fish like sharks.
