Stable Weather Equals Return of Fish

Capt. Richard Bennett

Wrightsville Beach - Saltwater Fishing Report

Hi Folks,
It's been a while, but the fishing has not been at its best. Things are picking up! Nice weather and less rain has allowed the water to clean up some and the fish have liked that, a lot. Now here's my report:
INSHORE: Red drum are biting in the cleaner waters. They are hitting top water plugs like the She Dog and the Super Spook early in the morning. As the sun gets high live or dead menhaden or mullet will get the job. I fish bait on a Carolina rig. Falling tide is best. Some flounder are being caught on live bait at the inlets.
NEAR SHORE: Spanish mackerel continue to provide fickled action. They are her one day and hard to find the next day. Some of the best flounder fishing of the year has been at the near shore reefs. Live bait or vertical jigging are both catching fish. Shark fishing near shrimp boats is a 99% guarantee (but be courteous to the shrimpers).
OFFSHORE: Nice catches of king mackerel with some mahi and sailfish mixed in are happening from 10 to 25 miles. Live bait, ballyhoo and cigar minnows are getting the job done.
GULFSTREAM: The stream is offering good catches of wahoo, mahi and billfish.
CAPE FEAR RIVER: The lower river is providing action on reds, trout and flounder.
UPCOMING: Fall fishing is just around the corner and if we can catch some stable weather patterns, the fishing should be great. Be sure to check my photo page at www.rod-man.com for the latest pics.
Until Next Time...LET'S GO FISHING!!!
