Wrightsville Beach Trout Bite is Strong

November 7th, 2012 by Capt. Rick Bennett | Comments Off

Hi Folks,

Inshore fishing is very hot and should continue for some time. Trout, reds and flounder are biting well. Offshore fishing is producing king mackerel and the Gulfstream still has a strong bite of wahoo. Now here’s my report:

INSHORE: Speckled trout are providing plenty of hot action in this cooler time of the year. The fish are bigger and more plentiful. While lots of folks like to use live bait (shrimp), I prefer artificials for trout fishing. Give me a medium lite rod, a ¼ oz. jig head and a favorite soft bait and I can fish all day. Don’t forget a good scent to apply to your favorite plastic. They all work well. Red rum and some flounder are biting as well.

NEAR SHORE: Bluefish, bonito, false albacore and some grey trout make up the nearshore action. Add in an occasional king mack and there is plenty to enjoy near the beach. Your favorite jig will catch everything but the kings, and a live bait or a drone spoon will catch them. Small bluefish make an excellent live bait.

OFFSHORE: Some good king mack action is to be had in the 20-40 mile ranges. Fast trolling with ballyhoo or slow trolling with live bait will produce great results. It’s Frying Pan Tower time when the kings bunch up at the old big structure.

GULFSTREAM: The wahoo bite is still strong. Blackfin tuna and a few YELLOWFIN TUNA are being caught as well.

UPCOMING: Look for the inshore bite to be strong and stronger until the weather turns the water too cold. Trout will continue to be the big bite now. For the false albacore fans look for that bite to be strong for the nest few weeks.

As a reminder, my new website at www.rod-man.com is fully operational. The old sites are still there but will be turned off very soon, so please visit the new site and bookmark us for future reference.

Until next time…LET’S GO FISHING!!!

It’s Fall, Everything is Biting Wrightsville and Carolina Beach

October 2nd, 2012 by Capt. Rick Bennett | Comments Off

Hi Folks,

Once again I would like to remind/inform everyone of my new website, www.rod-man.com, and my new email address, rodman@rod-man.com. All the information you need about the Rod-Man doings are now available on one site and the new email will put you in touch with me. Thank you.

What would you like to catch? That is a summary of this week’s fishing report. Virtually everything is biting! Now here’s my report:

INSHORE: Reds, flounder and trout are biting, although the trout bite will improve as it gets cooler. Reds are mostly EVERYWHERE. They are biting artificials and bait, live or dead. Flounder are staring at the inlets, Snow’s Cut and the River. Live bait and paddle tail artificials are the baits of choice. Trout are mostly in the river right now but will be cruising the sounds very soon.

NEAR SHORE: Big Spanish macks are biting in 30-40 feet of water along the beach. Clarkspoons on #1 planers with 30’ of leader and Bird rigs with 6’ of leader are producing the most and biggest fish. Two pound fish are common! Some false albacore and bluefish have shown up as well.

OFFSHORE: Kings and big Spanish are biting slow trolled live and dead bait. You can catch nice grouper, grunts and sea bass (you cannot keep the sea bass per current regulations).

GULFSTREAM: The main attraction in the stream right now is the wahooooooooooo! Blackfin tuna are plentiful as well.

UPCOMING: It only gets better from here. Look for a great trout season. The flounder and redfish bite should peak this month and remain strong into November for the flounder and December or until it gets too cold for the reds. It’s time to go fishing. Remember the Rod-Man is now a complete fishing service with ON YOUR BOAT GUIDED TRIPS, FULL SERVICE CHARTER BOOKING AND CUSTOM FISHING RODS AND REPAIRS. Until next time…LET’S GO FISHING!!!
