WD-40 Those Reels, Change The Hooks And Let’s Go Fishing

March 30th, 2005 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

Can you feel it getting closer? Any day now those big whiting will hit the beach and river. Just hang on a little longer. Right now blowfish are starting to show and they are usually first in and last out for the season. There are some puppy drum showing up in the surf and the shallow flats. They are feeding on artificial lures and shrimp. Offshore, Boston Mackerel are due anytime. Maria jigs and Got-Cha Plugs should work well on them as in previous years. Further out, yellow fun tuna and wahoo have been very good to the charter boats, even with some tuff weather when they get out, they catch fish. The Winner Queen had it’s first trip out this weekend and it was a good one. Lots of Black Bass and Beeliners along with a few grouper. Up the river by lock and dam number one, some shad are showing up but not in great numbers. The catfish are up there for sure and some are rather big from what I am hearing. Live shad and minnows would be the best bait. Why you might even find a stripped bass up there. Hopefully this next warm stretch will turn on the fish and really fire up the season. So freshen up that line, WD-40 those reels, change the hooks and let’s go fishing! Keep fishin and releasin! Steve and Karen Labanec Seagull Bait and Tackle Carolina Beach, NC 910-458-7135

Update On The North End

March 23rd, 2005 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

It’s time to wet a hook. You have waited long enough. Even with all I have going on, I took a couple of hours to break in the boat. I’ll tell you that you do not realize how long the winter is until you take that first trip. We had a busy winter and should be ready for a new phase of business and a grand opening pretty soon. We can’t wait. With the rising price of gas, more of you will be fishing inshore for flounder and red and black drum as well as whiting. Also, more and more of you will fish for Spanish mackerel. Inshore fishing can be just as exciting as fishing out in the Gulf Stream. Just fish lighter and remember the lighter you fish, the more you will catch. For those of you who can still venture to the Gulf Stream, the fishing is heating up quick. There have been some great Wahoo caught recently and bottom fishing is still great with some big black bass in the four-pound range. If you want to go to the Gulf Stream these days, the most economical way and a sure catch to boot is to charter a boat with a six-person split. A professional crew can surely make for a great trip and plenty of fish to bring home. The update on the North End is that it’s running smoothly with not so many tie-ups and few if any complaints. Filling out the form to purchase an annual permit is really simple. My advice is to get your pass at one of the local shops before you head up there. It will save you time and relieve the traffic bottleneck. Next weekend is Easter so I want some pictures of large catches! Let’s get out there and fish. Winter is over! Keep fishin and releasin!
