Topsail & Surf City Outdoors-Fishing Report 10-27-08

October 27th, 2008 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

Hi folks, Capt. David here with this weeks outdoors report. Sorry about the last couple of weeks folks, between fishing and hunting I’ve been a busy guy. Never fear folks we are going to give all of you the lowdown on whats hot and whats not!

Inshore, Specks and Reds are everywhere and are hitting about anything you can throw at them. The Swing bridge and Howards creek are holding lots of Trout, both Specks and Gray’s. The docks along the waterway and Banks channel are holding some nice Flounder and Reds along with Black drum. The inlet bars are a good place to look for some big Reds this time of the year and the north end of Lea island has a good bite going on too. The waterway still has a lot of spots making the fall run and the netters are tearing them up. Folks the best places to catch a mess on a rod and reel seems to be Topsail creek and Banks channel. Anyplace along the waterway is a good spot when a school moves through. Just sit and wait on them, they will be along shortly! Bloodworms and fresh cut shrimp are about the best baits to use. Who knows, a black drum or anything else might hit your bait.

The surf and piers are catching everything from Pompano to Blues now and the guys on the end of the piers are still catching some Kings. Spanish Mackeral are still around and early morning seems to be the best time to catch them. Live bait,cut bait or Mole crabs aka”sand fleas” are the best baits to catch whatever is in the surf. Some big fish roam the wave zone and can be caught now. Lots of fish feed in the white water zone on the beach so don’t try to heave your bait plumb to Europe! Spots,Redfish,Trout,Mullet,Blues,Spanish,all can be caught from shore so go stick a sand spike in the beach,take a chair,wet a hook and relax. Dinner is only a bite away! Don’t forget your beach permit if you drive out on the beach.

Offshore things are still biting and the kings can be found from the beach on out. Spanish are thick around the inlet and bluefish are everywhere. Bottom fishing is still good but the weather here lately has be great one day and miserable the next. Be careful if you go out and keep an eye on the weather.

On the hunting side, My son-in-law and I went hunting last week and he got a deer on Monday and one on Wednesday. That boy has a horseshoe up his-OOPS can’t say that in a family publication.Well anyway, you get the idea. I haven’t had any luck yet so I’m still trying. I even found out that the legendary sportsman Waylan Batson has even gotten 2 deer so far this season. Well thats about it for this week so remember to take a kid with you and be safe.

Topsail & Surf City Outdoors-Fishing Report 10-14-08

October 14th, 2008 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

 Hi folks, Capt. David here with this weeks outdoors report. Spots are everywhere and judging from what I’m hearing just about every place you can wet a hook, you can catch them. Surf fishing is good with a little bit of everything biting. The Reds are all along the beach and some huge schools are around the inlets. The north end of Lea island and Rich’s inlet are hot if you can find time to get there. Lots of Specks are around and are biting. A fat shrimp under a float will surely tempt a big Trout now. They are also hitting minnows and artificials. It really doesn’t matter what you use you ought to be able to find some hungry fish now. The flounder bite has picked up and some nice fish are being caught in the surf and sound. Back in the sound most of the docks are holding flounder or Reds now. Folks take a couple of days off work and go fishing! Everything is biting.
 Offshore, bottom fishing is good with lots of Black bass being caught on the close in reefs and ledges which is good news for small boaters. Farther out, Grouper and Snapper are in the 15-20 mile range on the deep structure. The Kings are all over the place and finding the bait is about the best place to start looking. Mahi and sails are still around but are pulling farther out as the water temps fall. Temperature breaks and current lines are good spots to look for about anything that swims in the ocean. Just remember to hang on when it happens, it can go from tranquil to chaotic in an instant when the fish hits.
 On the hunting side, I still ain’t got a deer yet but I’m still trying. Hey, even a blind hog will find an acorn! Hunting is an exercise in patience folks. Most folks who hunt know that it ain’t about the meat cause meat is cheaper at the store. It’s the experience of becoming part of your surroundings that appeal to a lot of folks. Gun season comes in Saturday and the boys are going to loose the hounds. Folks if a deer hound wanders up to your house, don’t run it off. Give the dog some water and call the number on the collar. The owner will thank you and you might make a new friend. Folks have a lot of money in a good dog and do take good care of them. These dogs are lean, running and tracking athletes of the dog world, so don’t think that because the dog is skinny it’s not taken care of. It’s the genetic trait of the breed to be skinny. Well thats it for this week so remember, be safe and take a kid with you!
