Hi folks, Capt. David here with this weeks outdoors report. Warm weather and warmer waters mean the fish are starting to bite. Bluefish are everywhere and unless you want to lose a lot of rigs, use a wire leader! Don’t stick your thumb in a Blue’s mouth or you might not have the ability to hitch-hike anymore. Redfish and black drum are in the surf along with Mullet. Reds are starting to bite along the waterway and around some of the docks. The Trout bite up in the River is still hot if you know where to go! The inlet bars are great places to look for a nice red this time of the year. Lots of dogfish are around too.

Offshore all the fish are biting where they usually are when the weather permits. Folks it’s been rough out there lately. Kings are out 25 miles or so and I’ve heard of some Bonita 10 miles out. Grouper are on the ledges and rockpiles starting about 20 miles and the closer reefs are full of Black bass this time of the year. It shouldn’t be too long till the weather calms and small boaters can get out.

On the hunting side, I went to the mountains this past weekend and saw turkeys, Talked to Turkeys, and still didn’t get one! #%@! I went to a seminar on Turkey hunting a few weeks back and the guy said it averages 4 yrs to get your first bird. I’m beginning to think he’s right. Don’t think I’m going to give up folks. I hate it when people tell me stuff like that. I have to prove them wrong! A friend said it was a character flaw. Well anyway folks thats about it for this week so remember to take a kid with you and be safe!

Hi folks, Capt. David here with this weeks outdoors report. The fish are starting to get a little more active with the warmer water. The Bluefish are thick and will hit just about anything. Reds are hanging around some of the docks and in the surf. The north end of Lea Island is a yearly hotspot and now is no different. Lots of Speckled Trout are being caught up in the River. The Specks are back in the creeks in any deep hole you can find. Be quiet and fish slow for the best results.
Offshore the fish are biting but the weather is convincing a lot of smart folks to stay on the hill. 20 -25 miles out seems to be a good place to start from what I am hearing. Temperature changes, current rips, weedlines, or reefs are the best places to start. Be careful and check the weather forecast and use your head when planning an offshore trip folks. I know I rant and rave about safety all the time, but maybe it will stick in your mind and keep you from being on the news!
Turkey season is in full swing and I’ve heard of a few birds being taken and I am proud of anybody that can get a longbeard. Heck I can’t seem to do it! Anyway I hope to change that this weekend in Sparta N.C. when me and a couple of my buddies go huntin’. Even if I don’t get a bird it’s still a beautiful place! Any time spent in the great outdoors is time that should be shared with good friends and family. Even if you don’t hunt or fish,time outdoors is still good. We are blessed with many rare and unusual plant and animals in this area. Venus Flytraps, Pitcher plants, Fox Squirrels, Sea turtles, Bald eagles and osprey’s to mention a few. Hey the weather is getting warmer so get off your tail and get some sun! Well thats it for this week so remember to take a kid and be safe!
