Topsail & Surf City Outdoors-Fishing Report 10-26-09

October 26th, 2009 by Gillwetter Press

Hi folks Capt. David here with this weeks outdoors report. The Spots are here and the Specks are too. Some nice Flounder are still around as well. Reds are everywhere from the surf to the backwater creeks and are hungry! Everything is biting now folks so it’s the time to go fishing. Blues are in the sound and surf and will hit anything. Gray trout are biting too. Surf or sound you can’t go wrong. The inlets are hot and some nice Reds and Specks can be caught around the Dredge dock on the south end. The north end of Lea Island is hot with some 20-30 pound Reds being caught in the surf. The water temps are cooling off and all the fish are trying to fatten up for the winter, so it really doesn’t matter if it’s cut bait, live bait, or artificials, they will hit it!

Offshore the bottom fishing is still good with Black bass and grouper on the rockpiles and ledges. Kings are still in the 20 mile range but that don’t mean you can’t catch one closer in. Look for the bait and you will fish. Spanish are still around and some False Albacore are in the area. Watch for diving birds and bait crashing. Be careful when you go out because of these fast moving fronts we get this time of the year. The weather can turn in a short time.

Last weekend I fished in the Red-Trout for Cystic Fibrosis tournament out of Figure Eight Yacht Club and guided two anglers for two days of the hardest fishing weather one could dream up! Windy, cold, cloudy, rainy, and unusually high tides made for rough condition but we managed to catch a few fish and won the largest redfish catagory. If you don’t know about this tournament it’s part of the Mercury Redbone Series. It’s all catch and release, 100% charity for the benefit of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. The money raised goes to find the cure for this ailment that affects children and young adults. Special thanks to the manager and staff at Figure Eight Yacht Club for their hospitality and use of their facilities.

Hunting season is in and I’m a happy boy! Duck season comes in on Nov 14th-Dec 5th, then from Dec 19th-Jan 30th. Black Ducks are out till Dec 1st. Deer gun season is in and I finally tagged one. It was a 21/2 year old cull buck. He had a long spike on one side and 3 points on the other. I saw the same deer last year and he had the same rack, only smaller. If you are trying to manage for better bucks,you have to take the culls and leave the small basket racks to get older and become a trophy. I’ve got to where I will pass on a buck if he has potential, But I will take a mature doe in a second. Well thats it for this week so be safe and take a kid with you!
