Topsail & Surf City Outdoors-Fishing Report 6-22-09

June 22nd, 2009 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

Hi folks, Capt. David with this weeks fishing report. If it swims it’s biting folks! The sound has plenty of Redfish that are more than willing to bite and the Flounder are in as well. A lot of the Flounder are on the small side but some keepers are around. The Reds are scattered all along the waterway flats and back up in the marsh creeks and will knock a topwater bait out of the water. Cut bait or live bait will work too.

The surf is happening too. Pompano, Red and Black Drum, Flounder, Sheepshead around the pier pilings, Flounder, Blues and who knows what else may bite. The piers are hot with some kings on the end,Spanish and blues on Gotcha plugs, and the occasional Tarpon.

Offshore,the kings are not far off the beach and I’ve heard that some Mahi are around 10 miles out. Bottom fishing is good with Grouper and Snapper on the ledges and rockpiles 10-15 miles out and I’m hearing that some Sail’s are not to far away. Most of the time they get caught by folks King Mackeral fishing. Hey, big bait, big fish.

Well all I can say folks is get your rod and head to your favorite fishing spot, cause the fish are biting! Till next week,be safe and take a kid with you.

Topsail & Surf City Outdoors-Fishing Report 6-9-09

June 9th, 2009 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

Hi folks, Capt. David here with this weeks outdoors report. Reds are scattered throughout the sound and creeks but are willing to hit a topwater plug or a live pogey on a Carolina rig. Fishing around docks is a good strategy for finding a big Red or Flounder. Yes the Flounder bite is picking up folks and some decent fish are around. The Trout bite is hot in the creeks off the New river. Live shrimp on a popping cork around structure is the ticket to tempt a big speck into the cooler.

 The surf and piers are reporting a good mixed bag with Whiting, Flounder, Black drum and puppy drum. The casters are getting Blues and Spanish now and the inlets are loaded up with chopper Blues. Kings and Cobia are a couple of miles out. The Grouper bite is hot about 20 miles out now as well.

 Folks, right now there are lots of Pogeys in the water and whether you fish for Kings or Reds or anything in between just pick the right size pogey and it will get the job done as bait. The trick to keeping pogeys alive is good water flow in your livewell and a round or oval bait tank. When you catch them,get them in the livewell quickly and don’t overload it. Pogey’s have to have room to swim and not knock into things. Add in the fact that they are a tender bait it won’t take much to stress them out to the point of exhaustion and start dying. If this happens get rid of most of them and try to pick lively ones to keep. Think about it guys, if all the sudden you were snatched up and thrown in a room with other folks with no explanation,you might get stressed! Then add in the fact that everybody eats you too! Anyway the point I’m trying to make is that good lively, healthy bait is the most important thing to angling success!

 Well thats it for this week so remember to be safe and take a kid with you!
