Striper Fishing the Cape Fear River, Carolina Beach, NC

Capt. Owen Sewell
January 15, 2010
Wilmington - Saltwater Fishing Report

When the other fish begin to shut down in the Cold months from November to February, the local Striper population begin to feed in Downtown Wilmington, NC. These fish range all the way from 3 to 30 lbs and are feisty fighters. Often the coldest, nastiest day you can choose is the day they want to bite, with some ten to fifteen fish days happening every year. There are often several other species that will surprise you during the trip. Speckled Trout and Redfish can be found in many of the same spots with the Stripers, a few catfish have even been caught in the brackish water. While the Stripers can not be kept, the Speckled Trout and Redfish can be for some excellent table fare, but catch and release is optional. We catch these fish using two methods, trolling deep diving plugs and casting jigs and swimbaits, which makes it easy for any range of experience to enjoy.
