Wrightsville Beach - Saltwater Fishing Report
Inshore and near shore fishing has taken off in the last couple of days. Drum, blues, bonito, gray trout have all shown up and the first spanish macks have made an appearance too.
Now here's my report:
Inshore: Inshore waters have warmed up nicely and the red and blacks have heated up as well. They are still biting fresh shrimp...dead and some of the blacks are really nice. The biggest we caught was 5.5 pounds!
Near Shore: Again the water has warmed up into the mid 60's. Bluefish (we had 15 the other day on fly rods), spanish macks, some bonito and gray trout are biting. With fly rods, they like pink or chartreuse flies; otherwise use your favorite jig to site cast or jig. The near shore artificial reefs and natural reefs are holding fish.
Offshore: Kings are still a ways out but coming in closer everyday. Bottom fishing for sea bass and grouper has been excellent.
Gulfstream: On fire seems to say it all. The stream is alive with wahoo, blackfin and yellowfin tuna, some mahi and kings.
Upcoming: Look for live bait and flounder to show up very soon. If you don't want to use live bait, try some gulp swim baits on a 1/4 oz. jig head. Work it slowly and near the bottom. Whiting are biting good in the river and trout are as well.
Until next time....
LET'S GO FISHING!!!
