Wrightsville Beach - Saltwater Fishing Report
I know it has been a while since I sent out a report. The main reason is fishing, primarily inshore has been sluggish.Near shore and offshore have been good, but being a backwater man I am looking for some cooler weather. Now here's my report:
INSHORE: Some reds, some flounder and some trout are biting. But you have to work hard and be in the right place to find them. Lately the jetties at Masonboro Inlet have been pretty good producers.
Near Shore: False albacore and bonito are balling large bait schools near the Ar;s off the beach. Spanish mackerel are still biting but will be gone soon. Some inshore king mackerel are around.
Offshore: Kings are biting from 10-30 miles. Bottom fishing is picking up some nice sea bass and grouper.
Gulfstream: I understand that the wahoo bite continues with some tuna and mahi mixed in.
Upcoming: with the cooling trend coming this weekend look for trout and reds inshore to become more active.
Until Next Time... LET'S GO FISHING!!!
