ProFishNC Charters Fishing Report, Fishing Forecast and Fishing Tips for Wilmington, Figure Eight Island, Topsail & Wrightsville Beach, NC

Seabass 1Fall Fishing is now Excellent from Topsail Beach, Wrightsville Beach, to Wilmington, NC.  With the recent cooler nights, our water temps have fallen into the upper 60′s providing prime fishing as the fish feel winter coming and are HUNGRY.

Nearshore Fishing Charters: This week we Filled Coolers nearshore vertical jigging and bottom fishing off of Topsail and Wrightsville Beach (all within 7 miles of the beach!).  We managed limits of Grey Trout, Big Black Seabass, Triggerfish, Silver Snapper & Spanish Mackerel (Just to name a few:).  The False Albacore and Spanish Mackerel are feeding super heavy right now as well.   There is a “mass migration” of bait going on right now off our coast and is providing some un-paralled sight fishing action.

*Fall Fishing Tip 1: Find a ledge or good structure, find your “Anchor Course” and anchor over it.   Many Species that traditionally hold in deeper waters most of the year are feeding & breeding in our Nearshore waters right now.   Don’t overshoot the fish as the Big Gag Grouper and Triggerfish are within 7 miles of the beach RIGHT NOW!*

Bottom FishingInshore Fishing Charters: Inshore fishing is on fire right now as we have been catching good numbers of big flounder and speckled trout on artificial baits.   I prefer using “Blue Water Candy” jigheads (super sharp) with a Berkeley Gulp shrimp or grub.  The Red Drum have been hungry as well as they are hitting both cut and live bait right now.   Just last week we landed two Trophy Red Drum in one trip (both over 40″ and pushed 30+lbs)!

*Fall Fishing Tip 2: As the ocean water cools, slow your presentation inshore with your artificial bait as the slower twitch and retrieve will produce more strikes… CONVERSELY:  Speed up your presentation nearshore!   The baitfish are FAST right now alluding the Mackerel and F. Albacore.  and you will catch more nearshore gamefish casting to the schools of top-feeding fish with a blistering fast retrieve.

ProFishNC Charters Fishing Report (Wrightsville & Topsail Beach, NC)

October 21st, 2013 by Capt. Trev | Comments Off

North Carolina Fall Fishing is in FULL SWING and only getting better every day!  Wrightsville Beach Offshore Bottom Fishing Flounder

On many of our Inshore & Nearshore Wrightsville Beach and Topsail Beach Fishing Trips this week we have caught boat limits of Grey Trout, lots of LARGE Spanish Mackerel and lots of Flounder!   Just this week I have gone through 30+ jigs from the teeth of very aggressive Spanish Mackerel (*Tip: The fish cant resist 3/4 oz Sea Striker Diamond Jigs in the Silver Color… #MatchTheHatch).  This time of year I prefer to vertical jig and sight cast to the schools of Mackerel just a mile off of our beaches (IMO, its much more fun than just trolling for them).

The Bigger Flounder are moving into our backwater and estuaries; however, there are still good numbers of larger fish holding off of our Nearshore wrecks, ledges and hard-bottom areas.  I am picking up most of our larger Nearshore Flounder on large Spro jigs pinned with a Berkley Gulp and on live finger mullet.  In our inlets and backwaters I am picking up most of our fall flounder on Berkley Gulp shrimp with Blue Water Candy jigheads.

MonsterRedDrum44The Red Drum this past week was nothing short of Epic!   We managed many “slot” Red Drum in the backwaters around docks and pilings; however, the story this week was the MONSTER Red Drum that are migrating south and passing through our waters.   Just this past Wednesday we managed 6 Huge Breeder Red Drum with the largest coming in at 44″ and 30+ Pounds and many more “Citation Sized” fish!

Our current water conditions are getting right and are now 70 – 72 degrees.   With the approaching cooler weather and colder nights, expect the Fall Fishing “bite” to only get better as the abundant Speckled Trout move into our waters with the falling temps.

*Note: Our Cape Fear River and Wilmington, NC Fishing Charters are booking up quick for our late Fall and Winter Striped Bass Fishery.  Give us a call today.

Check out our latest ProFishNC Charters Fishing Video Page and Enjoy a part of the Action.

Be sure to Book Early to ensure your Charter Fishing Date.

As Always, Tight-Lines and don’t forget to Take a Kid Fishing!
