Hello everyone. The spring weather has finally arrived and the fish are biting. We are catching red drum and black drum on fresh shrimp or mud minnows. You can catch them on jigs with gulp shrimp or jerk baits rigged weedless. There have been a few trout and flounder around as well. The whiting bite has been great in the river. Lots of fish and fun. They have been biting fresh shrimp and worms fished on double hook rigs on the bottom. Look for the boats and anchor up. A few bluefish and grey trout are biting as well. Now is a great time to book your inshore of coastal fishing charter for spring or summer, Give me a call at 910-264-1807.
