Inshore Fishing Around Southeastern, NC Heating Up

April 19th, 2011 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

Hi Folks,

Fishing is definitely heating up. Water temps from the 5 mile to inshore are right at the 63-64 mark. There have been good catches of drum inshore, blues on the beach, false albacore around 10 miles and kings 20-30 miles out. Weather is getting more consistent and that will mean more fish.

Now here is my report:

INSHORE: Black drum and some reds mixed in with them have been biting fresh shrimp in the creeks, the inlets and waterway. Best bite is on the falling tide. A few flounder have been caught, but no major bite yet.

NEAR SHORE: Bluefish are biting on the high tide near the inlets and along the beaches. You can catch them jigging or trolling. A couple of more water temp degrees and the first wave of Spanish mackerel should arrive.

OFFSHORE: False albacore and bonito have been reported in the 10 mile area. Kings are still 20-30 miles out.

GULFSTREAM: Weather permitting, boats making it to the stream have had good catches of wahoo, blackfin tuna and African pompano.

UPCOMING: As the water creeps up just a bit look for Spanish macs to make their appearance as well as some bonito. While the blues are biting now, look for some bigger fish to move in soon.

Be sure to check out my new picks (2011) on the photo page.

Until next time…LET’S GO FISHING!!!

Despite Weather Issues Fish Biting at Wrightsville Beach

April 5th, 2011 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

Hi Folks,

This will be an abbreviated report. Weather conditions have played havoc with attempts to go fishing, but when the window appears the fish have cooperated well. The action is inshore and in the Gulfstream…both ends of the spectrum.

Now here is my report:

INSHORE: Water temps have come up nicely and reds and black drum have responded well to fresh shrimp. Most fish are hanging near heavy structure and are biting best on the falling tide.

Gulfstream: We have received reports of wahoo, blackfin tuna, some mahi and king mackerel.

UPCOMING: Look for fishing to improve daily as things settle down. A few flounder have already been caught and it will not be long before the first spanish show up. I would bet on later April and all of May as being fantastic for fishing. Please visit my photo gallery for the latest pics.

Until next time…LET’S GO FISHING!!!
