Topsail Beach - Saltwater Fishing Report
Early Summer Fishing is HOT! There are LOTS OF FISH TO BE CAUGHT RIGHT NOW!
Our Spring Wilmington Fishing Charters including Topsail Beach, Wrightsville Beach & Carolina Beach are going STRONG! Our Water Temps here in SE Coastal NC are from 67 – 70 Degrees currently and warming up FAST providing some Excellent Fishing.
Whats you can expect to catch right now:
Spanish Mackerel Fishing is Great right now with large schools of fish pushing up the nearshore coast. We are catching them on YoZuri Deep Divers trolling fast.
Atlantic Bonito are still around and falling for the YoZuri Deep Divers as well. The current run of Bonito are a little smaller class of fish than the early run Bonito.
The Bluefish are so thick in numbers they are now a nuisance while targeting mackerel. I found that speeding up my troll speed to above 6kts keeps the bluefish off my baits and focuses more on mackerel.
The King Mackerel are here now as we have been catching good numbers of them in the 3-8 mile range. We are catching the Kings on both live baits (slow trolled) and YoZuri Deep Divers (the larger ones).
Flounder Fishing is Excellent right now as well… We are now catching double digit numbers on many of our inshore fishing charters and LARGE Flatties on our offshore bottom fishing charters. I am using 1-2oz Spro Jigs paired with Berkeley Gulp and fishing the tops of nearshore ledges and structure. These offshore Flounder are in the 2-6 lb range on average!
Red Drum Fishing is getting better every day as many fish are moving from the surf zone back into the inlets and creeks. We are catching most of our redfish in the backwaters around oyster bars and docks. They are hitting both live baits and Soft baits on jigheads.
Black Seabass Fishing continues to be good with most of my Offshore Bottom Fishing Charters catching huge numbers of seabass; though not all keepers, many go in the cooler.
Cobia Fishing is picking up now with the migration of the bait fish that are moving up our coast. The cobia are falling for both live baits and artificials (they are VERY Curious Fish).
We are currently running Offshore Fishing Charters and Inshore Fishing Charters for all of our local beaches and still have availability for our Summer Fishing Trips. We fish for it all… so if you want to target a specific species or fish a certain technique just let me know and we will make it happen. When you fish with ProFishNC, you can expect to do it all including Trolling, Drift Fishing, Offshore Bottom Fishing, Jigging, Sight-Casting, etc.
We have a new website for our Topsail Beach Clients, take a look at our Topsail Beach Fishing Charters Website (www.TopsailBeachFishing.com)
Don't Forget to Pass Down the Fun you had as a child and TAKE YOUR KIDS FISHING!
