Wrightsville Beach - Saltwater Fishing Report
Overall fishing has been excellent. We have seen a very fast heating of the water with the recent scolding temperatures and that has created some erratic fish behavior. Bottom line, look for fish in deeper, cooler water.
Now here is my report:
Inshore: The flounder bite is on! We caught several fish this week, some nearly 5 pounds. Using smaller menhaden on a carolina rig and moved slowly. When you get a strike, be sure NOT to jerk A flounder is going to scale your bait before he eats it. Give him some time. Reds are biting well also. Same bait and same rig on a falling tide. Some big bluefish are still around as well. We landed a 9 pounder while flounder fishing!
Near Shore: Near shore the cobia have made a strong showing at the inlets and near shore AR's. Spanish macks have been on one day and off the next. When you find them the bite well and then on other days they seem to be non-existent. Blues are still around.
Offshore: Kings are moving closer fast. Mahi are as well. Look for a strong showing in the 10 mile areas in the next few days. I am a live baiter, but cigar minnow and ballyhoo will do nicely too.
Upcoming: As we approach the HEAT of summer consider fishing early or late in the day. When possible fishing deeper water can produce good results. I have added several pics to this year's photo gallery. Check them out.
Until next time:
LET'S GO FISHING!!!
