Topsail & Surf City Outdoors-Fishing Report 9-29-08

September 30th, 2008 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

Hi folks, Capt. David here with this weeks outdoors report. I’m going to go ahead and tell you this is going to be short and sweet this week. Redfish on the inlet bars and all along the waterway. Nice Flounder around just about any dock or structure. Specks are in the deep holes and are biting on the high tide. Howard’s creek and the swing bridge are hot. Don’t forget the dredge dock at the south end either. The creeks are full of Shrimp and baitfish and the falling tide at just about any creek mouth is about a sure thing. The spots are starting to bite a little better and should get even better over the next few weeks. Do you hear that Doctor D!
 The surf is heating up and the best bite seems to be when I’m not there! Late evening and into the night is the best bite. Lots of Blues around and are all sizes. Lots of Reds running the surf and inlet bars. Get yourself a beach pass and go to either inlet and relax for a while!
 Offshore things are still the same,the storm didn’t mess it up too bad. Folks all I can say is to go fishing. Don’t keep putting it off till it’s too late. Procrastination will insure you don’t catch anything! Don’t complain when you don’t have any fish to eat in February, cause I told you to go fishing. Oh, remember that they call it fishing not catching. If they ain’t biting where you are, MOVE!
 On the hunting side, I ain’t got one yet but I have seen a few. Between fishing and hunting my wife is getting mad cause my housecleaning duties are getting overlooked. Huh, imagine that!
Folks thats it for this week cause I got fish to catch and critters to hunt! Till next week, be safe and take a kid with you!

Topsail & Surf City Outdoors-Fishing Report 9-23-08

Hi folks, Capt.David here with this weeks outdoors report. The Spots are showing up in better numbers this week and it’s none too soon! The waterway and the surf are heating up and everything is biting. Trout are still hanging around the Swing bridge and early morning seems to be the best time to catch a nice Speck. All that structure means that the Flounder are laying on the bottom around the bridge too. If you want to catch a citation size Flounder now,the bridge is the best place I know off. The Reds are scattered all along the waterway and I’m hearing that the inlet bars at both ends are stacked up with some BIG Reds! Now is the time to be fishing folks. Lay out of work and go fishing.
The offshore bite is still going as well. The best advise I can give you is, find the bait-find the fish!
Black Bass are everywhere for the bottom fisherman and some of the ledges in the 10 mile range have a grouper every now and then. Just be careful of the size limit! Flounder are being caught in the ocean and surf and the Blues are everywhere. I didn’t think that the little Blues would be worst bait stealers than the Pinfish, but they are! Kings and Spanish are thick and early morning is the hot  time to have baits in the water. Sails and Mahi are farther out but still biting hard when you find them. Be careful and pay attention to the weather this time of the year folks. A fast moving front can make it dangerous in a hurry out there. Slick calm in the morning and BAM! 6 footers rolling 4 seconds apart! Folks the first thing I would advise doing when it gets rough is to put on a life jacket immediately. Rouge waves are not a myth, they do happen! Just be safe folks.
Now on the hunting side. Well I’ve been hunting 3 times and saw deer twice but I still haven’t had a shot. Who says hunting is easy. Early season bow hunting is an exercise in abuse. Whether it’s the heat or the skeeter’s, it makes you question your sanity. What am I talkin’ about,sane people don’t do that to themselves. It’s still a rush when you see a deer. Heck just being outdoors makes me feel good. Friday my daughter called me to invite me to go Dove hunting with her on Saturday morning. Must have done something right! I didn’t go because I didn’t want to get a lesson in wingshooting from her. She gives me a hard time about getting old and missing birds. She did get her gift of good aim with a shotgun from her Granddaddy. Remember to take your kids hunting and you won’t be hunting your kids folks. Well thats it for this week folks,be safe and take a kid with you!
