Topsail & Surf City Outdoors-Fishing Report 4-28-09

April 28th, 2009 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

Hi folks, Capt. David here with this weeks outdoors report. Well the fishing is getting better with the warmer water temps and will only get better. Spanish Mackeral have made their presence known and the Bonita are just offshore now. Black Bass are thick on the ledges and reefs too. I’ve heard that the Flounder are thick just off the beach around any bottom structure. Kings are getting in to around 10 -15 miles and are hungry. Lots of Blues are around and are all different sizes from little snappers all the way up to choppers.
Inshore the Specks and Redfish are biting along with Blues everywhere. Dogfish sharks are biting as well and are 2-3 foot long. On light tackle they are a blast to catch! Back in the creeks the bait is plentiful and easy to catch with a cast net now. Folks load up the boat and go fishing. Call into work sick or just lay out and wet a hook. The surf is full of Blues,Black drum and Red drum. Lots of mullet have been caught as well from both the surf and piers. It won’t be long till the Tarpon and Kings will be close enough to the piers to target. Folks it looks like a banner year for fishing and I can’t wait.
On the hunting side,Turkey season will be going out on the 9th of May and that will be it till September boys and girls. I haven’t got one this year so the Turkeys have made me look like a Turkey! Deer hunting is easy compared to trying to kill a bird. Frustration and madness are my constant companion now. If anybody can help me out with getting one before this season goes out I would appreciate any help I can get! It’s a good thing we have a Food Lion close by so I don’t starve to death. Well thats about it for this week so be safe and take a kid with you when you go out! Till next week, Tight lines and screaming drags are my wish for everyone!

Topsail & Surf City Outdoors-Fishing Report 4-20-09

April 20th, 2009 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

Hi folks, Capt. David here with this weeks outdoors report. Sorry about last weeks column but I went to Virginia turkey hunting for a couple of days. Now I know why most successful turkey hunters are slightly insane! I’ve read every article and watched every TV show on turkey hunting to try and learn and in three years I still ain’t got one. I’ve gotten real close,but no cigar yet. Heck I’ve still got the whole box of shells I started with three years ago. I must be a glutton for punishment to have not given up yet,or stupid. The jury is still out on that one.
 Well lets talk fishing. The reds and trout are biting but it’s a little slow. The water warms up a few degrees and then a cold front will knock it back down. That’s okay because it won’t be long before it stays warm! The reefs,ledges and rockpiles are holding some nice Black Bass and the Bonita are around. Divers rock and the artificial reefs about 3 miles out are hotspots now. Don’t forget the Liberty ship off Wrightsville beach either. Mullet are being caught from the piers and surf along with Blowfish. Blues are everywhere so using a short piece of steel leader is a good idea when fishing to keep from re-rigging after every bite. A word of caution to everybody,New Topsail Inlet is slitted up bad and the bouy’s are not right. If you are not sure of how to get out the inlet,Don’t try! Most boating accidents happen around inlets. Shifting sands and currents make navigation difficult at best and deadly at worst! I haven’t heard about New river inlet or the conditions there but I do know about Topsail. Be careful folks,please! Hopefully the Corps of Enginners will get it cleaned out soon.

Well thats it for this week so be safe and take a kid with you when you go out!
