Rain Please Go Away

Wrightsville Beach - Saltwater Fishing Report

Hi Folks,
Rainy weather is keeping the water very dirty and reducing the salinity. All this equals spotty inshore fishing. At the same time ocean fishing is doing much better. Now here is my report:
Inshore: Reds, flounder and some trout are being found in the deeper holes on a sporadic basis. Inlets seem to be best...where the saltier water remains.
Near Shore: The Spanish bite has been from 4 to 5 miles out with plenty of nice fish to be had. Some nice flounder are hanging around the inshore reefs along with a few bull reds.
Offshore: King mackerel are in the 20-30 mile areas and are biting well on drone spoons and ballyhoo.
Gulfstream: The wahoo bite continues and likely will do so through November.
Cape Fear River: Again, lots of rainwater is not helping. On the right tide and the right day, specks, flounder and reds can be caught in the lower river areas.
Upcoming: Hopefully the rain will let off and allow the water to clear. Then we can gear up for the inshore fall run. Look for more aggressive reds and flounder bites in the cooling waters. Also, the trout bite should improve significantly.
Until Next Time...LET'S GO FISHING!!!
