Wrightsville Beach Fishing Report 4-23-09

April 23rd, 2009 by Capt. Matt Wirt | Comments Off

Spring is here and the fish are chewing! The bluefish are biting anything that moves and limiting out has been no problem. They are lots of fun on light tackle. The spanish mackerel are moving in and the spanish fishing is continuing to improve each day. We will soon have loads of spanish to troll and sight cast for with light tackle spinning gear and 6 wt fly rods. The king mackerel bite is also improving in the 5 to 15 mile range and it looks like we may get a early start on them this year.

Inshore the black drum are biting well around the docks on fresh shrimp fished on a carolina rig. The red drum bite is becoming more consistent. We have had good success on the flats on low wind days chasing the schools. The drum have been caught on Berkley Gulp! jarkbaits and clouser minnows.

This is shaping up to be another great year. Our charters are catching lots of fish and it should only get better! Now is the time to book your trip and come fishing! Hope to see you soon!

Reel Adventure Charters 4-14-09 Wrightsville Beach Fishing Report

April 15th, 2009 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

Hello everyone and sorry for the lack of reports. I have no excuses. The weather has been tough and the fishing has been SLOW!

That has all changed with the arrival of the Spanish Mackerel and the Bluefish! Both are biting well now and the season is finally in full swing. We have high hopes that the Atlantic Bonito will show up any day as well. The smooth dogfish sharks have the inlet covered up and are lots of fun on light tackle. Black Drum are biting on fresh shrimp fished around the docks on a carolina rig. Try the falling tide for best results. It was such a slow start, and the water temps were so cold, we did some freshwater bass fishing at Sutton lake with good results and had a great time. When the fishing is tough sometimes you just have to fish for what will bite! Everytime those Bass would jump it reminded me of the Snook in Florida!

Keep an eye out for the Spanish Mackerel article we have in NC Sportsman this month. It should be on the news stands around the 17 th of this month.

Also here is a new fly tying video we hope you enjoy. It has become one of my “go to” fly’s.

Now is the time too book your charter. The fish are biting and the weather is finally nice! Just give us a call!

Thanks!
