Wrightsville Beach - Saltwater Fishing Report
Fall fishing is great. Cool temps mean we can fish all day and the fish are more active and aggressive. The main story in our area is the trout bite, Now here is my report:
INSHORE: Trout, reds and a few flounder are biting Z-Man soft plastics on 1/4 oz. jig heads. Live shrimp will also provide lots of action.
NEAR SHORE: False albacore and bluefish are providing lots of action just off the beach. Small diamond jigs both casting and jigging will catch both fishes.
OFFSHORE: King mackerel are starring in 66-70 degree water.. about 20-25 out. Cigars and ballyhoo work well.
GULF STREAM: No Reports
CAPE FEAR RIVER: Lots of trout and reds and a few flounder are biting soft plastics and live shrimp. Whiting are biting fresh shrimp.
UPCOMING: As long as this pleasant weather holds, look for fishing to continue to be awesome.
Until Next Year (this is my last report for this year)... LET'S GO FISHING!!!
