Topsail & Surf City Outdoors-Fishing Report 1-26-10

January 26th, 2010 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

Hi folks, Capt. David here with this weeks outdoors report. There really ain’t much happening with the fishing except for Reds in the surf. The inlet bars at Rich’s and Topsail are holding some nice fish. Lea Island is a hotspot and you might get lucky and catch a big school moving along the beach about anywhere along the island. Some Specks are still around too. Mirro-lures and redhead jigs with a green body seems to work just fine. The water temps are in the low 50′s to high 40′s according to where you are. The ocean is a little warmer than the sound but a sunny day will raise the temperature enough to get fish feeding. Remember to work your bait slower when it’s cold!

 On the hunting side, Duck season goes out Saturday and some birds are here. Bluebills,Buffleheads,Redheads,Geese,Mergansers,or Ringnecks are all possible now. The birds are scattered but still it’s worth the trip. Loads of birds were here right before that cold snap the other week but they moved on. Lots of birds are just a little north of us at Pamlico,Cedar Island and Mattamuskett. Lets hope some more show up before the weekend. Check your regulations digest for the other small game that is still in season like Quail. It’s also a good time to pick up closeouts at the sporting goods stores around the area and you can save a ton on next season’s gear. Well thats about it for this week so remember to be safe and take a kid with you!

Topsail & Surf City Outdoors-Fishing Report 1-12-10

January 12th, 2010 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

Hi folks, Capt. David here with this weeks outdoors report. I hope everybody has been able to stay warm for the last week. This is some unseasonably cold weather but the good thing about it is the ducks are showing up. Mattamuskett, Pamlico, and Core sounds are full of birds and they are showing up in the area now. Plenty of Bluebills and some Redheads are around. Buffleheads and loads of Mergansers. A few Blacks and Mallards can also make for an interesting morning too. I’ve heard that the river has Ringnecks, Mallards,and some Teal. Woodies are also in the mix. Lots of Geese are around too. With the cold weather the ponds and creeks are freezing up and the birds are going to big water like the sound now, so go hunting folks.

The fishing is pretty much a bust until the weather warms up a little, so clean and organize your gear for next season. Oil reels and respool them with line and when you get done with that, get the boat in order too. Turkey season ain’t but a few months away so get that squared away as well.
Well that’s about it for this week so remember to be safe and take a kid with you.
