Kure Beach Pier

March 16th, 2005 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

It’s getting better. Some small whiting have showed up on the end of Kure Beach Pier. There is some puppy drum down on the flats behind Masonboro Island and also behind the Air Force Base in Kure Beach. Things are warming up and fishing is once again on the rebound. Soon there will be whiting down at the mouth of the Cape Fear River and that will signal the start of a new season. Generally, whiting hit the river anywhere from the middle of March and as late as the start of April. So if you have a couple of hours or just want to check out the boat, it?s a perfect way to start the season. Offshore, bottom fishing is still very good. Especially for black sea bass and Beeliners. Some of the black sea bass are really big. Several four pounders have been caught out around the twenty-five mile mark. In the surf, there are plenty of sharks and some puppy drum. They are feeding on cut bait and shrimp. You could also try fishing the docks and oyster beds for puppy drum and speckled trout. Grubs and shrimp will work the best as bait. Keep fishin and releasin!

Keep Carolina Beach Inlet Open!

March 9th, 2005 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

It’s March and things should start warming up soon. I have heard of some Whiting caught down off Holden Beach. Soon they should start hitting down at the mouth of the Cape Fear River. It generally starts at the end or the last week of March. Otherwise, it’s still kind of slow. We are all guilty of neglecting our equipment. I know I am. Do you hate the first trip out and the depth finder won’t work, or, it’s real hard to start the motor? The best thing to do is to go down to the ramp and stick the boat in the water to make sure all the stuff you need is still in good working condition and up to date! Nothing worse than having to call SeaTow on the first trip of the season. Offshore, bottom fishing is great if you can get the right day to make it offshore with the weather. Huge black bass are thick anywhere past the twenty-mile mark. Things should really start picking up shortly. Do not forget to e-mail your Senators and congressmen about the Carolina Beach Inlet. It is vital that it remain open! A lot of bait comes through that inlet to feed those big flounder. So even if you don?t have a big boat or use the inlet it is still just as important to the bank fishermen as the boater. So go online and visit www.fryingpantower.com to find out more about what?s going on and how to get involved. Let?s catch some fish folks. All work and no play is not very healthy. Keep fishin and releasin!
