Good to Great Fishing Wrightsville Beach and south into the Cape

Wrightsville Beach - Saltwater Fishing Report

Hi Folks,
I have fished six days in the past two weeks with mixed results. However I have seen some very good signs of fishing activity the is on the outstanding side. Water temps are 80+ and for the most part we have had SW winds on the light side. Here's my report:
INSHORE: Reds and flounder are biting well on menhaden fished on Carolina rigs. The falling tide has been best for the reds while the incoming has been best for flounder. Inlets, docks, ledges and generally structure have been the best producing areas.
NEAR SHORE: The Spanish mackerel have been steady most days and great on others. Clarkspoons fished deep work best, but a bird rig on top will often be a good producer. Some large flounder and reds have shown up around the near shore reefs.
OFFSHORE: Very good king mackerel and mahi fishing going on in the 10-30 mile areas. Amberjack are hitting jigs 20 miles out.
GULFSTREAM: No reports. Too Hot???
CAPE FEAR RIVER: Good catches of flounder in the upper river areas, while the southern river is producing trout and reds.
UPCOMING: Look for fishing to remain good to excellent as long as the weather holds good. Sailfish should be coming into the area soon.
Until Next Time…LET'S GO FISHING!!!
