Affordable Charters Fishing Report 5-31-09

May 31st, 2009 by Gillwetter Press | 1 Comment »

On the piers a lot of small flounder & Virginia mullet, black drum, bluefish, shark, & croaker.

In the surf some red drum, bluefish, Virginia mullet, black drum, flounder, & croaker.

Inshore a few red drum, speckled trout, flounder, black drum, bluefish, & croaker.

Offshore on the bottom gag & red grouper, black bass, snapper, & grunts. On the top near shore Spanish mackerel, bonito, & bluefish. On the top 20 to 35 miles offshore large king mackerel, wahoo, & dolphin.

Fishing tip of the week: There is no doubt that live minnows work better than dead minnows. But sometimes they are hard to get. In the dredge hole the peanut pogge(menhaden) are very plentiful. I’ll go catch several dozen, & ice them down good. Then when I get home I put them in small ziplock bags & freeze them. They make excellent bait when minnows are hard to find. Keep fishing & stay safe.

Inshore Virginia mullet, speckled trout bite has picked up a little bit, red drum, black drum, blues, lots of croaker, & shark.

In the surf catching a few black drum & small red drum, a few Virginia mullet, small croaker, some bluefish, & small flounder.

On the piers Spanish mackerel, a few bonito, bluefish, Virginia mullet, flounder, black drum, & shark.

Offshore on the bottom snapper, grouper, beeliners, black bass, grunt, & shark.

Fishing tip of the week: The wind has finally let up enough where we were able to get out to the mouth of the Cape Fear & fish for Virginia mullet. But the croaker are so thick it’s hard to get past them to see what else is there. Hopefully the croaker will move out soon & we’ll have better catches of Virginia mullet. Keep fishing & stay safe.
