Wrightsville Beach - Saltwater Fishing Report
Yes it is still hot and yes the fish are still biting. A little harder to find and a little picky, but they are there...waiting for your rod to sing. We have had good luck inshore and near shore as well.
Now here's my report:
Inshore: Flounder are biting in most places including the river, hitting live bait and mostly in the rising tide. Reds are just the opposite...biting on the falling tide mostly and playing a little hide and seek.
Near Shore: Spanish mackerel are still a hit and miss attraction with some days being better than others. But the tasty speedsters are fun to catch on flounder rods using the "new" Blue Water Candy Spanish Daisy. Shark fishing is very strong right now with large black tip dominating the fishing. Some nice flounder are biting at the near shore artificial reefs.
Offshore: Offshore seems to be a bit further out this year, primarily due to the warm water temps. Most action for mahi and kings is in the 18+ mile areas. AJ's are hanging around the offshore reefs and are plenty of fun if you are up to a real battle.
Upcoming: Blessed cool weather is not tooooooo far away and the great fall fishing that goes with it. Big flounder in late September and all of October, redfish everywhere and the appearance the beloved specks will all be happening within just a few weeks. Make your plans to get on the water.
