Wrightsville Beach - Saltwater Fishing Report
This past weekend saw an unbelievable bite just off the beach at Wrightsville Beach. You name the fish, it was biting. Fish are like land animals, they can sense weather coming, such as the coastal low we are dealing now. When they do the EAT!
Now here's my report:
Inshore: Fishing continues to improve. Reds and flounder are the main attractions. Finger mullet are still around in large quantities. Falling tides have worked best.
Near Shore: Here's where things were a little crazy before the storm. Bluefish and Spanish were thick along the beach. False albacore were virtually everywhere.
Offshore: Large king macks were being caught 10-15 miles out with one 32 pounder reported by the Fortune Hunter. Also, they caught a 13 pound blackfin tuna only 13 miles out! And again the false albacore were everywhere.
Gulfstream: There is an outstanding wahoo bite and blackfin mixed in with the hoos.
Upcoming: When this coastal low gets outta here, look for inshore fishing to explode and river fishing as well. Trout fishing should turn on well in most areas, but the river in particular. Redfish activity will increase and some nice fall flounder should bite well.
Until Next Time...LET'S GO FISHING!!!
