Affordable Charters Fishing Report 2-28-11

February 28th, 2011 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

There have been reports of some pan fish starting to move into the mouth of the Cape Fear such as small croaker, Virginia mullet, & black bass.

In the waterways & bays we are still catching a few red drum & speckled trout. Reports of striped bass & red drum being caught in the Wilmington area of the Cape Fear River.

The water temperature overall in this area has been around 55 degrees this past week. As the water continues to warm up the fishing should continue to get better. Keep fishing & stay safe.

Affordable Charters Fishing Report 2-21-11

The water temperature has warmed up quite a bit this past week & is now about 52 degrees.

The red drum bite is starting to pick up. We are catching most of them around the Bald Head Island area. Also catching a few speckled trout in the same area.

Around Southport starting to catch a few black bass, a few Virginia mullet, small croaker, & a few small pigfish.

Up the Cape Fear River towards Wilmington there are reports of a few nice size striped bass, some red drum, & speckled trout.

The moratorium has now taken a different course with the Marine Fisheries. You can’t keep any speckled trout until June 15th due to the spawning season. I wonder what the next reason for extending will be. Keep fishing & stay safe.
