Wrightsville Beach - Saltwater Fishing Report
Fishing has reached the excellent rating as we head into June. Lots of live bait around and lots of fish too. Inshore is hot, hot, hot and near shore is popping with fish too.
Here we go:
Inshore: Redfish are leading the charge inshore with plenty of flounder as well. Best bait are small menhaden fished on a carolina rig. Reds have been biting best on the falling tide and flounder have been best on either tide, as long as it is moving. Some big chopper blues have moved up the creeks and are providing their share of excitement.
Near Shore: Along the beach there are several traveling pockets of menhaden schools which of course are attracting bigger fish. Fish around the bait schools and find anything from blues, 2-7 pounds, sharks, spanish, kings 6-8 pounds and cobia.
Offshore: Kings are biting in the 5 to 10 mile area and the mahi are starting to show up in close as well. Amberjack are biting at the School House.
Upcoming: With the persistent SW winds for several days, look for the mahi bite to really get going. Slow trolling live bait with light tackle is the ticket to catching these fish and having a blast doing it. The Rod-Man "In the Water" Fishing School is this coming weekend and everything is ready for a great school.
Please check the photo gallery for new pics that have been added.
Until next time....
LET'S GO FISHING!!!
