Flounder, Bluefish, Black Sea Bass, and tons of Shad

Capt. Owen Sewell
April 22, 2008
Wrightsville Beach - Saltwater Fishing Report

Well, we were finally able to get offshore and fish the beautiful water of Southeastern North Carolina. WE headed out of Wrightsville Beach, and started fishing soon after. The bluefish are everywhere from 1 to 3 miles off of the beach right now. There are a few Bonito around, but they seem to be to the north now. We fished for a little while and it was just so dang pretty that we carried the clients offshore. There are tons of glass minnows out there from 7 miles to 18 miles. This only means that the Spanish mackeral will be right on their tails, chompin' away. We then proceeded to catch very nice keeper Black Sea Bass and Flounder to our surprise and the clients couldn't have been any happier, we also pulled out a triggerfish and some grunts. They went home with a good sized meal for the both of them and had a great time. The next day we decided to go shad fishing and caught 46 fish in 4 hours, it was just about non-stop action. These are some of the hardest fighting fish caught on ultralight reels and 10 lb test. We hope to have a video with the shad action on here tomorrow. Things are getting better everyday and wth this steady warm weather coming up, it should pull everything together in the next two weeks.

Wrightsville Beach Fishing Forecast:

The fishing will only improve over the next two weeks, as well as the weather. The Spanish and Kings should be the next two major fish to arrive before summer fishing. Call and book today
