Topsail & Surf City Outdoors-Fishing Report 11-24-08

November 24th, 2008 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

Hi folks, Capt. David here with this weeks outdoors report. The fish are still biting but it’s starting to slow down. The Reds are still thick in the sound and surf. Some Flounder are still biting and Black drum are thick in the surf as well. Specks are tearing it up and it looks like it’s a banner year too. The piers are still catching a few Spots and mullet along with Red and Black drum and a few Flounder thrown in the mix. Bluefish are everywhere too. 

Offshore it has been too danged rough to go out and the guys are staying on the hill. It shouldn’t be long before the bluefin and Fat alberts show up if the ocean will calm down so you can get out without killing yourself. 

On the hunting side, a buddy and I went up to western N.C. this past weekend hunting and had a blast. He got a doe, a button buck and a big non-typical 7 pointer. I got a doe. Oh well thats the way it goes. He was sitting in a honeyhole and had deer around him all the time. I saw a lot of deer but I couldn’t get a shot so I passed. I’ll tell you folks something, dragging a 180 lb deer up the side of a mountain ain’t easy even with 2 guys pulling. Maybe I’m just getting old! It was cold up there and it snowed about 11/2 inches on Friday morning and the temps didn’t get above freezing the whole time but we had fun and made memories. Thats what its all about! Well thats about it for this week so be safe and take a kid with you.

Topsail & Surf City Outdoors-Fishing Report 11-17-08

November 17th, 2008 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

Hi folks,Capt. David here with this weeks outdoors report. The bite is slowing down a little but there are still plenty of fish biting. The spots are still around in the surf and sound and some are big. Lots of Speckled trout and Redfish are biting in the sound and surf. Just off the beach on the ledges the Gray Trout are tearing it up. Blues are everywhere and all sizes. Use a short wire leader if you keep getting bit off. The water temps are cooling off pretty fast and are in the mid to low 60′s according to where you are fishing. This time of the year a couple of degree’s can be the difference between fishing and catching. Some nice black drum are being caught as well.  Offshore the kings are pulling out 20-30 miles but that don’t mean you won’t catch one closer in. I’m hearing the the stream is thick with Wahoo now too. The bottom fishing is still going on but the fish are easing out to deeper water for the winter too. Everything is still around,just farther out.

 On the hunting side, one of my readers called the other day to comment on my lack of success in  deer hunting so far this year. Well folks it’s not that I ain’t seen any deer,I’m just being a little picky this year. Heck I’ll bet I can shoot a deer in you folks back yard. Deer hunting and harvesting a deer are two entirely different things. It ain’t about the kill,it’s the experience of the hunt! Anyway, duck season is in and about everything else for that matter so go hunting. I haven’t heard of any birds being around except for woodies on the river so lets hope for cold weather to push some down here. On another note: coming up before too long is the Wild Game Cookoff at Poplar Grove Plantation on January 24th 2009 and then the Cape Fear Wildlife Expo in March. Over the winter there are a lot of outdoor shows and seminars to attend and hopefully pick up some helpful tips from. Well I’m going to wrap this up because I’ve got to get my mess together for a mountain hunting trip. Till next week,be safe and take a kid with you.
