Topsail & Surf City Outdoors-Fishing Report 3-31-09

March 31st, 2009 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

Hi folks, Capt. David here with this weeks outdoors report. The weather is warming up and the dogwoods are fixing to bloom. That always means the fish are starting to bite. The water temps are right around 60 degrees now and it’s in the 70 degree range back in some of the creeks. The Trout are biting up in the creeks off the New river and are hitting Gulp shrimp and Billy Bait Halo shrimp. Lots of Reds are around from the surf back into the sound and are hungry. It looks like a banner year ahead for Specks and Reds.
Offshore some False Albacore are within a couple of miles of the beach and the rockpiles and reefs are starting to stack up with Black Bass.Farther out Grouper are biting and Wahoo and Tuna are as well. Be careful and check the weather forecast before you go out. Make sure all your safety gear is handy and in good order too. Tell someone where you are going and when to expect you back.
Now is the time to make sure your boat is ready as well. If you haven’t already taken care of your trailer and boat,don’t wait any longer. If you ain’t mechanically inclined take it to the local repair shop before you head to the water with the family.Nothing ruins the day like boat problems at the ramp. Oh, brush up on your trailer skills too.
Turkey season will be here in a couple of weeks and I can’t wait! Maybe this will be the year I finally get a longbeard. Thankfully there are plenty of birds to hunt in our state and most of the local game lands have birds. Check your regulations digest and game lands map book to find a spot near you. Well thats it for this week so remember to be safe and take a kid with you!

Topsail & Surf City Outdoors-Fishing Report 3-23-09

Hi folks, Capt. David here with this weeks outdoors report. Things are looking up folks! Reds are in the surf and at the north end of Lea Island. If you can get outside on a calm day you can run the surf just outside the breakers and find some big schools of fish. Folks this is extreme fishing because one guy has to stay on the wheel and run the boat. Toss a Gulp bait at them and hang on! the reds are also getting fired up in the sound as the water warms up. Look for Specks in the deep holes and along dropoff’s. Gulp bait on a jig or a Billy Bait Halo Shrimp will work wonders on a hungry Trout. Find the warmest water you can and look for fish laying around sunning.
Offshore the Stream is giving up wahoo and tuna and the Grouper in in the 10-15 mile range. Black bass are starting to show up in the 5 mile range and the Bonita should be making their presence known soon.
April 4th is youth turkey day and April 11th is fun for everybody. The season runs till May 9th so get out there and bag a longbeard. If you don’t have any private land to hunt just head for one of the game lands in the area. All of them have birds but the hunting can be hard. Hey if it was easy it wouldn’t be fun!
Remember to check out the local tackle shops and get your gear in order. These folks know their business and know whats biting and where. They can hook you up with all you need to catch a mess of fish! Well that’s it for this week so remember to be safe and take a kid with you!
