Wrightsville Beach - Saltwater Fishing Report
An excellent day of fishing just off Wrightsville Beach, albeit a bit wet. Rain showers abounded, but we found enough fat alberts to enjoy the day. Now here's my report:
INSHORE: reds and flounder are the primary catches right now, with a few blacks and trout mixed in. Falling tide seems to work well and fresh bait or artificials work well.
NEAR SHORE: Plenty of pods of anchovies have attracted large schools of false albacore. We caught 16 on the 23rd.
OFFSHORE: King macks and a few mahi are biting in the 20-30 mile areas.
GULF STREAM: Lots of wahoo biting, kings, mahi and some billfish as well.
CAPE FEAR RIVER: Reports of plenty of reds, flounder trout and black drum are coming in.
UPCOMING: A blessed cold front is coming and with that cooler temps. Everything inshore and near shore should explode and literally jump in your boat. Well, you may need to make a little fishing effort.
Until Next Time...LET'S GO FISHING!!!
