Topsail & Surf City Outdoors-Fishing Report 12-28-08

December 28th, 2008 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

Hi folks,Capt. David here with this weeks outdoors report. If you don’t know it already, the fishing is slow. The surf is slow but a few fish will always bite. Usually it’s where I ain’t! Lots of little trout and some Red drum are still biting for the hardcore fisherman. These last few warm days have warmed the water back in the sound a couple of degrees and have gotten a few fish feeding. Like I’ve said before,find the dark bottom areas folks. A good sunny day in the 70′s will usually turn the fish on this time of the year. Loads of reds are in the sound still and are spooky as heck too. The creeks are usually a good place to start looking for fish because there will be some bait in them. Find the bait,find the fish! Now don’t think fishing in the cold is easy,I’m just saying if you have to go fishing,go!

 On the hunting side, Deer season is out after the first of January so you better get your fill for a while. Duck season is in but there ain’t many birds around the sound. If you want to go to the swamps or the Northeast Cape Fear you can find some Woodies and Ringnecks along with an occasional Greenhead. Loads of mergansers are around and they will come to the decoys. Now on another note,Get your best wildgame recipe and enter the Wildgame Cookoff at Poplar Grove Plantation on January 24,2009 if you want more info call Ann Williams at 910-794-0292 or check out the website- capefearwildlifeexpo.com. They have 3 divisions for game,fish and fowl. Cash prizes for all divisions. On March 21st and 22nd the 1st Annual Cape Fear Wildlife Expo will be at the Schwartz Center and the Coastline Convention Center. This is a must for anyone who enjoys the outdoors and they will have something for everyone. Bring the whole family! Well folks I’ve got to go now and pack for one more hunting trip of the year. Everyone have a safe and Happy New Year and take a kid with you!

Topsail & Surf City Outdoors-Fishing Report 12-22-08

December 22nd, 2008 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

Hi folks,Capt. David here with this weeks outdoors report. The fishing has slowed to a crawl folks but a few hardcore folks are still out there and catching a few fish. It’s mostly a mixed bag with Red and Black drum, Trout, And some Mullet. One of my buddies told me that there are a lot of small Specks in the surf but they are undersized fish.  The sound still has Specks and Reds biting on warm days up on the flats. Find some dark bottom areas and oyster bars during mid day. They can be a little slow this time of the year and are spooky as heck in the clear water. Go slow and cast long!  Offshore it’s a long way to find fish and its been rough most of the time. If you can find a good temperature break in the upper 60′s you can probably find fish. Be careful if you go and tell somebody when to expect you back!

 On the hunting side, deer season goes out on Jan.1st and don’t come back in till September. Never fear though, Duck season is in and all the small game species is in season. Winter turkey season will be coming in in mid January and spring season ain’t far away either. Anyway, It’s the holiday season and I would like to send all of you my best wishes for a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Remember that spotlightin’ ain’t right and Santa wouldn’t appeciate it much either. He knows who you are too. Don’t shoot the Reindeer! Well thats it folks, be safe and take a kid with you.
