Hi folks, Capt. David here with this weeks outdoors report. When the wind ain’t blowin’ the fish are biting! Water temps are in the mid 70′s now and everything in the water is fired up. Lots of 1-2 lb Blues are around and some big chopper blues are biting as well. Folks these big Blues are vicious and will bite the heck out of you so handle them carefully! Redfish are biting around the docks and on some of the points around the creek mouths now. If you can find some live bait, that’s the ticket to a big Red. Some flounder are being caught in the surf and back in the sound, but most of them are small fish. The big ones ought to be here soon. Some nice Mullet are being caught in the surf, mostly at night, along with Pompano and Croaker.

The Spanish are here and are thick around the Inlets and the bite is early morning folks. Now that don’t mean you can’t catch them all day, it just means they are biting the best in the morning! Trolling a 00 Clark Spoon on a planer is the best way to fill a cooler. Sometimes they like the gold color and other time they will only hit a silver spoon. The best way to find out which they want is to troll both and when you catch a few and figure it out, fill the cooler! The kings are around and are being caught from the piers. Mostly smaller fish but the big ones are coming. Anywhere between the E-bouy and Christmas rock are hot right now. Farther out the Wahoo and Mahi are biting but the weather is the limiting factor. Bottom fishing is good with Black Bass and snapper biting and farther out on the ledges the Grouper are biting too. Be careful before you head out the inlet folks. The weather can be dangerous this time of the year.

It really doesn’t matter what you fish for or whether you fish from the beach, pier or boat the fish are biting and you really need to go fishing! Just call the boss and tell him the little voices in your head are saying you need to go fishing. Oh, inviting him to go with you might not be a bad idea. He needs to relax as well! Well that’s about it for this week folks so remember to take a kid with you and be safe!

Hi folks, Capt. David here with this weeks outdoors report. Last week I was in the Florida Keys fishing with my wife and did we have fun! We caught Snappers and Groupers. We saw Tarpon and Snook and got a little sunburnt in the process. Heck they wanted us to stay in Florida so badly they tried burning half the state down to keep us there. Folks, they had some massive forest fires and it gives you something to think about when you see miles of burnt forestland. We haven’t had a bad one since the big Holly Shelter fire in the mid 80′s. When it’s as dry as it has been in the last year or so, it don’t take long for a small brush pile to get out of control. Think before you burn anything these days.

Now to the fishing news. I am hearing that the Kings are close to the beaches now and that the piers all around are starting to get a few. All the reefs are loaded with Black Bass and remember that the length is now 12 inches. Grouper are biting on the ledges and deep wrecks now. I hope this wind will lay down before long! Be careful before you go out folks and tell someone when and where you are going.

Inshore the Reds are tearing it up and the Trout are still biting good up in the River. Folks, there are some monster Blues in the sound and waterway now and these things are hungry and mean! The Flounder should be moving in before to long and I can’t wait for some fresh fillets. The water temps are in the low to mid 70′s and the fishing is only going to get better folks. My advice to everybody is GO FISHING! Boat, bank, dock or pier, the fish are biting.

On the hunting side, it’s over till September boys and girls! Here’s a good one for you folks. I have traveled all over N.C. and Va. trying to get a Turkey this year and haven’t done any good. Well my neighbor tells me the other day that he has a big old tom roosting in a tree in his back yard not 100 yards from my house! ARRRGGHHH! It’s no wonder most hunters are bald, from pulling their hair out trying to figure the critters they are after out! Well that’s about it for this week so remember to be safe and take a kid with you!
