Wrightsville Beach - Saltwater Fishing Report
First please allow me to update everyone. I have recently changed my email from firstname.lastname@example.org to email@example.com. Please make note of this in your address book. At the same time I have consolidated my two websites, www.rodmancharters.com and www.custom-fishingrods.com into one new site, www.rod-man.com. Please take this opportunity to view and bookmark the new site. I will not be updating the old sites and they will soon cease to exist. Thank you.
Fall fishing is gearing up now for sure. On a recent trip with Capt. Lewis Emery I had some very nice trout and flounder action. (Please check the pics at www.rod-man.com/fishingphotos/main.php. Now here's my report:
INSHORE: The red drum and flounder bite is very good. Some trout are showing up and that is a very good sign for later fall fishing. Reds are biting in the creeks, the ICW and the inlets. They are biting live bait, cut bait and artificials, mostly on the falling tide. Flounder are biting live bait in deep water and will bite artificials in shallower water.
NEAR SHORE: Large Spanish mackerel are biting near the beaches. Bluefish and grey trout are biting at the near shore artificial reefs.
OFFSHORE: Kings and mahi are biting from about 15 to 25 miles out. Some amberjack and sailfish are around as well.
GULFSTREAM: Out to sea storms have kept boats away from the stream this week, but look for a nice wahoo bite when things settle down.
UPCOMING: Look for inshore fishing to explode over the next month plus. The same will happen to "far offshore" and gulfstream fishing. I expect a banner trout season this year. I know that many or you wait and live for trout season. A reminder, please visit my new website at www.rod-man.com, I think you will like it! Until next time, LET'S GO FISHING!!!
