Wrightsville Beach - Saltwater Fishing Report
Speckled trout fishing is very good right now and many feel it hasn't hit its peak yet! High double digit catches of nice fish are common. Other inshore action is very good as well. Offshore the king mackerel bite is on fire. Now here's my report:
Inshore: Specks galore! Live shrimp and Gulp are about equal in trout landings. In many cases the best bite is on falling water, but don't hesitate to fish the rising water as well. The important thing with trout is moving water. Red drum action in the river has been pretty awesome as well. Capt Seth from Double Haul Guide Service has had some terrific catches on fly rods in the river. Some sheepshead and ring tail porgies are biting around the jetties.
Near Shore: Some nice red drum and black drum are right behind the breakers. Fresh cut bait and shrimp will get the job done.
Offshore: The king mackerel bite has been awesome in the 20 to 40 mile areas.
Gulfstream: Boats traveling to the stream have been doing well on wahoo and blackfin tuna.
Upcoming: Inshore trout fishing should continue to get better and better as long as it doesn't get too cold.
