Topsail & Surf City Outdoors-Fishing Report 3-22-10

March 22nd, 2010 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

 Hi folks, Capt. David here with this weeks outdoors report. The water is warming and the weather is getting better. Maybe spring has finally sprung! The ocean water temps are in the mid 50′s and it’s warmer back in the sound. The Reds that stayed back in the sound are going to be found around the bays with a dark bottom. Just about all the bays behind are holding fish and all it takes is a good sunny day to turn them on. Spinnerbaits, topwaters and jigs will all work! They are hungry and will hit about anything! These fish are still very spooky because of the clear water so don’t get too close and be quiet. Specks are back in the creeks and a few Black drum are around as well. 

The surf has some Red and Black drum around with some Mullet and Dogfish in the mix. It won’t be long folks, so get ready.

 The 2nd annual Cafe Fear Wildlife Expo was a success and a lot of vendors, boat dealers, and others involved in the local outdoor industry were present and a good time was had by all. If you didn’t make it it will happen next and you can take the whole family. The Cafe Fear CCA banquet will be held this weekend on Saturday at the American Legion Post on Pine Grove Drive in Wilmington at 6:00pm and all are invited. If you fish,you need to be there! Turkey season ain’t far away and you need to be ready! I am! April 10th is the opening day for bearded birds only. Check your regulations guide for all the details. Well thats about it for this week so be safe and take a kid with you when you go out hunting or fishing!

Topsail & Surf City Outdoors-Fishing Report 2-9-10

February 9th, 2010 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

Hi folks, Capt. David here with this weeks outdoors report. Nothing is happening with the fishing but I ain’t going to say you can’t catch one. No matter how cold it gets, they still have to eat. I just ain’t going to brave the cold! It will not be long till the weather and water warms up and the fish start biting. On the hunting side,Quail season is in till the end of the month as well asRabbit, Possum and Coon, Bobcat and Crow. Squirrel season is in till Feb 13th for Red and Gray Squirrel only. Snow,Blue and Ross’s goose is in till March 10th. I guess we will just have to look forward to Turkey on April 10th.

I would like to talk a little about conservation and the enviroment. I know you are probably asking yourself how a hunter and fisherman like myself could care about the enviroment. Don’t get me wrong,I ain’t a treehugger either. Sportsman just realize that the animals are an important part of our world and the are barometers of the ecosystems health. A healthy ecosystem is good for both non-game and game species and for us! I pick up trash out of the water every day and most of it is plastic shopping bags. Sea turtles mistake them for jellyfish and eat them resulting in death. Seabirds face the same hazards from trash in the water.Old fishing line,plastic bottles and bags,bottles and cans don’t just disappear. A couple of years ago I was hunting in the mountains and came across an old dump site in a ravine and it was decades old and you could still see bottles and cans in the pile. Folks, we made the mess and it’s up to us to clean it up. I always try to come home with more trash than I left with even if I just walk around the block. It would amaze most poeple to see the trash floating in the water after a good rainstorm. I want to leave the next generation the same things to enjoy that I do. Clean water, Clean air, fish to catch and game to hunt.Well till next week be safe and take a kid with you!
