6 Foot Daisy Chain by Blue Water Candy

Fishing off the Carolinas in April can be an exhilarating experience for anglers. This time of year offers prime conditions for offshore fishing, with a focus on species like Wahoo, Blackfin Tuna, Dolphin (Mahi-Mahi), and occasionally Yellowfin Tuna. This is why we included the 6’ Daisy Chain by Blue Water Candy ($32), it is sure to tease Tuna, Billfish and Dolphin.

Wahoo are known for their speed and power, making them a thrilling catch for anglers targeting them offshore. They're often found near underwater structures such as reefs, wrecks, and drop-offs, so knowing where to locate them can greatly increase your chances of success.

Blackfin Tuna are another prized catch during April in the Carolinas. These tuna can be found both nearshore and offshore, often congregating around baitfish schools. They're known for their strength and agility, providing an exciting fight for anglers.

Dolphin, also known as Mahi-Mahi or Dorado, are a colorful and fast-growing species that are abundant in the waters off the Carolinas during April. They're typically found near floating debris, weed lines, and temperature breaks, where they prey on smaller fish and squid.

In addition to these offshore species, April also marks the arrival of Spanish Mackerel along the Carolina coast. These fast and aggressive fish are known for their acrobatic jumps and are often targeted by anglers using live bait rigs or trolling with small lures. To get you ready for Spanish Mackerel, which move into the Carolinas by April, we also included a Live Bait rig ($5) which is perfect for slow trolling or pitching any small bait.
