Affordable Charters Fishing Report 2-24-08

February 24th, 2008 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

Inshore some reports of speckled trout, red drum & black drum at the south side of Masonboro Inlet.

In the surf a few speckled trout, small Virginia mullet, & spiny dog fish.
Fishing tip of the week: There are still a few Virginia mullet at the mouth of the Cape Fear River. I fish most of the time around Bald Head Island. If I don’t have much luck on trout or drum it’s normally a sure thing at the mouth of the river using a spot rig with small pieces of shrimp. Keep fishing & stay safe.

Affordable Charters Fishing Report 2-17-08

Inshore we are catching a few red drum, black drum, speckled trout, striped bass, & catfish.

In the surf, quite a few spiny dogfish, small Virginia mullet, red drum, & speckled trout.

Offshore no report.

Fishing tip of the week: Hydraulic steering has become more popular in the past few years. One of the biggest problems with this type of steering system is leaks. This problem is very easy to prevent. Most of the time the leak is at the motor end. There are two seals, right & left on the hydraulic unit. When your boat sets up for a few weeks, buildup of grit & pollen on the stainless steel steering rods will ruin the seals, which is very costly to repair. So get in the habit of wiping the stainless steering rods off with a lightly oiled clean rag. This will prevent the problem in most cases. Keep fishing & stay safe.
