Wrightsville Beach to Cape Fear: Fish are Biting

June 28th, 2012 by Capt. Rick Bennett | Comments Off

Hi Folks,

Even with the wind and the high tides and the rain, fishing has stayed hot in the Wrightsville Beach to the Cape Fear waters. The best action is inshore with reds and flounder biting, along with some trout in the river. Now here’s my report:

INSHORE: Again, reds and flounder are biting well. Many citation size flounder are hitting live bait. Reds are biting on live bait as well as cut bait. Best tide for flounder is incoming and for reds it is falling. In the river, both reds and flounder are biting and add some trout to the mix too.

NEAR SHORE: Near shore the main attraction are the Spanish. They are being caught in large numbers on a routine basis. Some nice cobia have been brought to the boats as well. Vertical jigging has produced some nice gray trout on the near shore artificial reefs.

Offshore: Offshore fishing is in that lull between spring and summer that seems to happen every June about the 3rd or 4th week. Look for the king and mahi bite to pick up soon.

GULFSTREAM: No reports from the stream as yet, but the Cape Fear Marlin Tournament has started so we should be hearing something soon.

UPCOMING: Big flounder have shown up. For those of you who can get into the ocean, try some flounder fishing around the near shore artificial reefs for some citation size flounder. Remember, I will go on your boat and guide you to where the fish are and show you how to catch them. And, if you do not have a boat, I now represent 17 of the best captains in the area: from flats boat fly-fishing for reds to Gulfstream fishing and everything else in-between, I can hook you up with a high quality boat and captain. SO…LET’S GO FISHING!!!

IT’S FISHIN’ TIME in S.E. North Carolina

June 13th, 2012 by Capt. Rick Bennett | Comments Off

Hi Folks,

Well some more rain has come and the fish are biting even better than before. Inshore, near shore and offshore, the fish are biting. Summer is here, June is here and all is right in the fishing world. Now here’s my report:

INSHORE: From the inlets to the creeks to the river, the fish are biting. Redfish are hitting live bait and artificials. Flounder are biting live bait. On one trip this week, one of the captains I book for caught 20 stripers, 3 reds and 2 flounder. And, that was just an early morning outing, WOW, what a catch. The stripers were caught on topwater and suspended lures on light tackle and ran between 4 and 8 pounds.

NEAR SHORE: The Spanish macks are biting hard with several of the boats catching their limit Again, another one of my captains reports he had 75 Spanish this morning! Some cobia are around also.

OFFSHORE: King mackerel and some small mahi are biting in the 10-25 mile range. Deep jigging is bringing in some nice amberjack. The grouper bite is on and on strong!

GULFSTREAM: Gulfstream trips are producing some wahoo, mahi, blackfin tuna and kings.

UPCOMING: Look for the inshore bite to continue strong for the next month or so. The mahi bite closer to shore mixed in with some sailfish should crank up soon.

Until next time, LETS GO FISHING!!!
