Saltwater Fishing Reports - New Hanover County
Carolina Beach & Kure Beach, NC

The Gill Wetter "Your Local Fishing News"

Capt. Matt Wirt with Reel Adventure Charters reports the red and black drum, flounder, speckled trout and sheepshead are biting well inshore. As the water cools down look on the flats in shallow water for big schools of reds. They will school up to stay warm and you can easily have 20-30 fish days if you position your self correctly in relation to the school of fish. Gulp shrimp and jerkbaits worked real slow will produce the best results. The black drum and sheepshead are biting well near the rocks off of Fort Fisher and around the ADM dock. Shrimp, fiddler crabs or sand fleas will work best. The flounder action this year has been a lot slower either due to the late start in the weather this year or the years of pressure that have been put on the fish. The flounder are doing fairly well in the ICW and Snows Cut and if you are looking for a large citation fish I would fish the artificial reefs just off shore. Live mullet or jerk baits will produce the best results. The Speckled Trout have taken up the flounders slack this year and have made a good showing. My bait of choice has been a 3” Gulp! shrimp in the new penny color fished around structure or oyster beds that have deep water access. Creek mouths are also a good place search for specks on a falling tide.

Offshore the Gray Trout are right off the beach at the near shore reefs. Sting silvers work great and a curly tail grub on a Gitzem jig head will trigger even the laziest gray trout to strike. The false albacore are right off the beach on out to 10 miles. Mariah jigs work great and 3 to 4 inch white jerk baits will produce strikes as well. Use about 2’ of 15lb fluorocarbon leader for best results. The king mackerel action is hot everywhere right now. The Dredge Wreck, School House or Frying Pan Tower should all have kings nearby ready to bite almost anything that moves. The wahoo are doing well in the stream with lots of large ones showing up. Go get em!
