Saltwater Fishing Reports - Brunswick County
Oak Island & Southport, NC

The Gill Wetter "Your Local Fishing News"

Will, from Oak Island Sporting Goods reports that fishing is still producing some very nice multiple catch days for the last few weeks. The lingering warm weather has extended fishing in a few areas, as well as brought other fish back into areas that they normally might not be this time of year.
Offshore reports indicate that King Mackerel and different species of Bottom Fish are being caught quite well in the area of the South 40, Tower, and Horseshoe regions. The bait of choice has been cigar minnows and squid (cut or whole). Further offshore, has seen Wahoo being caught in the area of the Blackjack Hole using ballywhoo.
Nearshore reports have been very good when it comes to catching Grey Trout. Large catches have been reported at the Wofes, AR420, and the AR425. Stingsilver Jigs and Hopkins Spoons have produced the results. Also in these areas, we have seen some large Red Drum (catch and release size) being caught using live bait. Some Flounder are also being caught at the AR425 using live bait as well.
The pier and surf reports are still looking pretty good for Spots, Blues, and Whiting using cut bait. Trout and a few Flounder are also being caught as well, with some being caught in the surf. The trout are being caught on Curl Tail Grubs, DOA Shrimp, and Mirrolures. The Flounder are being caught using live bait or strips of Mullet.
Backwater fishing is also doing well this time of year with Trout, Flounder, Red & Black Drum being caught along creeks lined with grass beds, the Intercoastal Waterway, and Southport Waterfront. A wide variety of bait is being used, including live, cut, and artificial lures. You might want to check with a few sources before heading out, as bait preference changes from day to day this time of year.
As with any fishing trip, take a child, be safe, have fun, and enjoy the day, no matter the outcome.
