Wrightsville Beach to the Cape Fear: Fish are Biting

Wrightsville Beach - Saltwater Fishing Report
Even with the wind and the high tides and the rain, fishing has stayed hot in the Wrightsville Beach to the Cape Fear waters. The best action is inshore with reds and flounder biting, along with some trout in the river. Now here's my report:
INSHORE: Again, reds and flounder are biting well. Many citation size flounder are hitting live bait. Reds are biting on live bait as well as cut bait. Best tide for flounder is incoming and for reds it is falling. In the river, both reds and flounder are biting and add some trout to the mix too.
NEAR SHORE: Near shore the main attraction are the Spanish. They are being caught in large numbers on a routine basis. Some nice cobia have been brought to the boats as well. Vertical jigging has produced some nice gray trout on the near shore artificial reefs.
Offshore: Offshore fishing is in that lull between spring and summer that seems to happen every June about the 3rd or 4th week. Look for the king and mahi bite to pick up soon.
GULFSTREAM: No reports from the stream as yet, but the Cape Fear Marlin Tournament has started so we should be hearing something soon.
UPCOMING: Big flounder have shown up. For those of you who can get into the ocean, try some flounder fishing around the near shore artificial reefs for some citation size flounder. Remember, I will go on your boat and guide you to where the fish are and show you how to catch them. And, if you do not have a boat, I now represent 17 of the best captains in the area: from flats boat fly-fishing for reds to Gulfstream fishing and everything else in-between, I can hook you up with a high quality boat and captain. SO…LET'S GO FISHING!!!
