Wrightsville Beach - Saltwater Fishing Report
It is finally happening. The waters have warmed and for now calmed down. Not much rain in the forecast and the fish are chomping. Here's my report:
INSHORE: Reds and black drum are the best targets with a few flounder showing up. Fresh shrimp and cut bait work best.
NEAR SHORE: From the beach to the 5 mile areas, you can find blues, Spanish, bonito and some spring kings. Jigging and trolling spoons are the best methods.
OFFSHORE: Kings are moving in and bonito and the large Spanish are biting too.
Gulf Stream: Wahoo, mahi and blackfin tuna are biting.
UPCOMING: More and more of the same. As things warm up a bit more, look for more flounder inshore.
UNTIL NEXT TIME...LET'S GO FISHING!!!
