Topsail & Surf City Outdoors-Fishing Report 7-21-08

July 22nd, 2008 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

Hi folks, Capt. David here with this weeks outdoors report. Spanish Mackerel are everywhere just off the beach. Lots of Flounder are being caught in the surf and off the piers but most all of them are too small to keep. The Flounder fishing is the same way back in the sound as well. Lots of 12-13 inch fish but keepers are few and far between. Now that’s not to say that there ain’t any keepers out there, you just have to fish hard and cull a bunch of fish. The Redfish action back in the sound is hot but that little storm the other day kind of knocked them down a bit. There are a lot of small fish but folks I have been finding a lot of over-slot fish lately. It’s hard to tell a man that he has to let the biggest fish of his life go! That’s why we have those fish is because of the regulations in place. There are some Trout still biting but it’s mainly a late evening or early morning bite. The swing bridge has been fairly good and up in the river all the deep holes at the creek mouths are full of Specks.

Offshore has been hot as usual for this time of the year. The bait and the kings are still about 10 miles out but they have been catching them from the piers too. You just can’t tell what a fish is going to do! I don’t think a single one of the fish around here have seen one of those fishing shows or read a book about what, when, and where they are supposed to be doing! A wise old fisherman once told me,” Boy you find fish where they are at! If anybody out there figures that out, Give me a call and enlighten me, Please! Well folks thats about it for this week so be safe and take a kid fishing!

Hi folks, Capt. David here with this weeks outdoors report. Folks no matter what you like to catch, it’s biting! The sound is full of hungry Redfish and flounder. The Speckled trout are biting early morning or late evening and Ladyfish are around just about every dock with a light on it at night. The Reds are mostly slot sized fish and most of the Flounder are on the small side but legal. Lots of Blues are still around and some of them are big! I don’t know what’s up with the chopper Blues but they are still around back in the sound.  Offshore the Kings are biting from the piers on out and some nice Sailfish are being caught slow trolling for kings in the 10 mile range. The bottom fishing is good with Black bass,Snapper,and Grouper on just about every ledge and rockpile you can find! Some Mahi are around in the 10-15 mile range and if you can find some debris or a weedline,fish it hard! Cobia are still around and a few Tarpon are still in the area as well. The Gulfstream is hot as usual this time of the year too!

 On the hunting side,less than 2 months till Deer season opens on the 13th of Sept. Folks you better start filling the feeders and checking your stands. Go ahead and get your gear together and start practicing now. It ain’t gonna be long till the games begin and I ain’t talking about the Olympics either ya’ll. Well thats about it for this week so remember to take a kid fishing and be safe.
