Offshore, people are catching king mackerel. Catches have been plentiful along with a few reports of tuna. On the bottom gag, red and scamp grouper, pink snapper, black bass, grunts and ringtails are being caught.Inshore, the water temperature has risen which has picked the fishing up considerably. We are catching Virginia mullet, trout, black drum, red drum, catfish and striped bass. In the surf there are reports of people catching speckled trout, a few flounder, black drum, and Virginia mullet. This week’s fishing tip: This past week the water temperature went back up which has turned the fish on. If you like catching Virginia mullet, the mouth of the Cape Fear River is the spot to fish. Falling tide is the best time using shrimp or cut bait. Another fishing tip for this week: Sometimes I have felt like going surf fishing for just an hour or two so I would take a small amount of bait but then after 30 minutes of good fishing, I’m out of bait. But now you have “synthetic” alternatives to natural cut bait, bloodworms or shrimp. I have tried them and they do work. So now I always keep a few bags in my tackle box. Island Tackle and Hardware has a large variety of Berkley Gulps or Fish bites. Fort Fisher Trading Post also sells them.

Purchasing Saltwater & Freshwater Fishing Licenses

Offshore there are still some king mackerel being caught. On the bottom people are catching gag, red and scamp grouper, pink snapper, black bass, grunts and ringtails.
Inshore, the water temperature dropped to the mid 40’s which has slowed down the fishing. Still we are catching a few trout, black drum, red drum, catfish and striped bass.
This week’s fishing tip: As of January 1, 2007, all salt-water fishermen must have a fishing license. If you fish on a pier or charter boat they will have a blanket coverage that will cover you for that day. Island Tackle and Hardware will be a certified location for purchasing saltwater and freshwater fishing licenses.
Keep fishing and stay safe.
