Fishing Wrightsville and Carolina Beaches

Wrightsville Beach - Saltwater Fishing Report

Hi Folks,

Again it has been a while since my last report, but you can blame the weather on that one. This has undoubtedly been the worst fishing weather thus far this season I can remember. Wind and rain, rain and wind, cold; you name and we have had it. Things were getting heated up just when "Andrea" came thru with 4+ inches of rain. My fishing report is below, but bottom line it is hit and miss. But I remain hopeful going forward. The water temp off Wrightsville Beach is 81.

INSHORE: Rain and wind has left us with some dirty water, but it is finally starting to clear up. Poagies are pretty easy to find for bait fishermen. Some reds are being caught near the inlets and in the waterway. Friday we caught a 6.25 pound flounder in the waterway so the larger flounder are here; we just need the weather to stabilize so we can get some constant fishing going on.

NEAR SHORE: Spanish mackerel are biting at a fairly steady rate, occasionally taking a day off...As usual there are a few blues mixed in with the Spanish. Shark fishing is steady around the shrimp boats and is always good for a fun tug on the line.

OFFSHORE: From the 5 mile areas out to 25 miles the king mackerel bite is pretty good with live bait or ballyhoo. I have not received any reports of mahi as yet, but that should change in the very near future.


UPCOMING: Expect BETTER WEATHER!!! Look for mahi to come inside of 25 miles and as close as 10 miles or so. Big flounder should continue to produce both inshore and at the near shore AR's. Be sure to check out the photo page at www.rod-man.com.

Until Next Time...LET's GO FISHING!!!
