Topsail & Surf City Outdoors-Fishing Report 5-18-09

May 18th, 2009 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

Hi folks, Capt. David here with this weeks outdoors report.

Another Turkey season has come and gone with no success for me. Well there’s always next year. Lets talk about the present and what is happening now! The fish are biting folks and just about anywhere you want to go! Red drum, Black drum, Blues of all sizes,little sharks, Mullet and Spanish mackeral are being caught in the surf and from the piers. Some Flounder are being caught in the ocean as well.

The sound has plenty of Reds but they are scattered. Lots of big chopper blues are in the waterway as well. Folks these things have a head like a Pitbull and an attitude to match. If you boat one of them, stay away from the business end as they can remove a finger in one bite. Some nice Black drum are around as well and the Trout are still biting. The swing bridge is usually a good place to look for a nice Speck this time of the year.

It really doesn’t matter where you like to fish now, you ought to be able to catch a few and the time spent doing it is worth it! Remember to stop by one of the local tackle shops and get the latest Marine Fisheries regulation sheet. It’s better to throw one back than get a ticket! Well that’s about it for this week so remember to be safe and take a kid with you!

Topsail & Surf City Outdoors-Fishing Report 5-12-09

Hi folks, Capt. David here with this weeks outdoors report. The fish are biting folks! Red and Black drum are in the surf and sound,Mullet and spanish are in the surf and being caught off the piers too. The kings are moving in close to the beach and should be available to the pier guys if they already haven’t got there. Loads of Bluefish are aroundand some of them are big. Folks I caught some in the waterway this past weekend that were 8 pounders plus! That’s a handful on a light rod. The flounder should be moving in and I’ve heard of some keepers being caught. Look around the inlets,jigs or live bait will hook a big flatfish this time of the year. If you are looking for live bait,the backs of the creeks are full of 3-4 inch Menhaden and a castnet will fill a livewell in a couple of throws.

Offshore the bottom fishing is good on the ledges and reefs. Grouper,Snapper,Beeliners and Black bass are hot. I haven’t heard much about the gulfstream lately because the weather has been so rough. Folks, now is the time to hit the pier,beach or the boat and catch some fish. Well thats about it for this week so be safe and take a kid with you when you go out!
