Hi folks, Capt. David with this weeks outdoors report. The water is warming up and the fish are biting. Bluefish are everywhere now. The surf ,the sound,from the pier or a boat, they’re everywhere. I’m also hearing reports of some Flounder starting to show up as well. The bonita really did’nt get real close but some are around the liberty ship off Wrightsville and around Divers rock too. A few spanish are beginning to show up and are hitting the old Clark spoon and planer rig. If you don’t know what that is,go to the tackle shop! We have some very good tackle shops locally and some of the best local fishermen and women working for them. Help and advise are always free at any shop around.
Back in the sound the Reds are stirring around and are hungry. If you find a school try a Gulp bait on a jig head or a gold spoon. They are kind of spooky too sostay as far back as possible and cast to them. Some nice trout are being caught in the creeks up on the river. Capt. Rick Kellum out of Sneads Ferry tells me that the new Halo Shrimp made by Betts Tackle works real good on those big Gator Trout. Heck he caught a 9 pounder last week!
On the hunting side, Last week I had the priviledge to hunt some property on the N.C.-Va. border. Folks I’ve hunted all my life and I’ve never seen anything like this place. I sat in a ground blind on the first morning and saw 5 deer and 2 turkeys. One of the turkeys was a big gobbler,I called him in with a box call I made and had him at 30 yards. Perfect! Only problem was he was on the other side of a brier patch and I didn’t have a shot. I could see him! Beard about 10 inches long! Strutting around like a fool! No shot! Hey that’s hunting folks. It’s not the kill, it’s the experience of being in the woods. My buddy Chris had one sneak up right behind him and was looking him in the eye when he turned around. Scared the heck out of both of them. Neither of the three of us got a bird but we had a great time and saw a lot of cool stuff. The experience is the reason we need to take the kids outdoors. Show them that there is something other than video games and computers. The adrenalin rush of a big buck or ducks in the decoys can’t be simulated on a computer. Well thats about all for this week folks. Be safe and take a kid with you. Capt. David

Hi folks Capt. David with this weeks outdoors report. Aside from the weather the fishing is picking up. The bonita are within 5 miles of the beach and some folks wore them out last week before the weather blew in over the weekend. The Liberty ship, Dallas rock and Diver’s rock are great places to start looking for them. Be there early because as the morning wears on the bite slows down. Off the piers and in the surf the Mullet are thick, along with some Black drum mixed in. The Blues are around the inlet and they will bite just about anything, even each other! Back in the sound the Reds and Specks are biting, one of my friends caught a couple of nice Trout out from under the swing bridge the other day and was using live shrimp. He had them left over from the fall in the bait tank. Like I was saying last week,this time of the year the weather can be fickle so be careful out there. Heck a 30 mph wind makes the sound unpleasant so you know it’s rough outside!
Turkey season is finally here. Yippee! I hope somebody got a nice gobbler on Saturday cause I didn’t see nothing. I’m going to a friends place in Virginia this week and hopefully we will have something to show you when we get back. With my luck we probably won’t see a thing. Thats hunting folks, enjoying being in the woods appeals to a primal instinct deep in my soul. I know I’m not the only one out there with the same feeling. By the way, hunting Turkey’s over bait is illegal in N.C. Don’t do it folks! It’s a good way to lose your hunting privileges in this state. Well I’ve got to go and finish packing my stuff, so till next week Keep it real and keep it safe! take a kid with you and have fun! Capt. David
