Wrightsville Beach - Saltwater Fishing Report
Things are heating up fast. One boat reported 18 large Spanish mackerel this week! Inshore fishing is improving daily and with the warm temps this week, fishing should really turn on.
Now here's my report:
INSHORE: Redfish and flounder are the primary suspects right now. Artificials and live bait will both do the trick. The river, the inlets, the ICW and the creeks have been producing well.
NEAR SHORE: The big Spanish have shown in good numbers. Bluefish are still around and some choppers are biting. There have been a few kings along the beach which is just another sign of how much we are ahead this season.
OFFSHORE: King mackerel are hitting hard at Frying Pan Tower. Schools of false albacore are likely to show up most anywhere.
GULFSTREAM: Nice catches of wahoo, tuna and mahi have rewarded the boats making it to the stream
UPCOMING: Be sure to check out the new photos on my web page at www.rodmancharters.com. The Fisherman's Post inshore tournament trail for reds and flounder will kick off June 1 and 2 right here in Wrightsville Beach. Check it out at www.fishermanspost.com/tournaments/inshore-trail. Again, fishing right now is good and every day is getting better. It's time to
LET'S GO FISHING!!!
