Spanish Mackerel Have Showed Up On High Rock & Sheepshead Rock

May 25th, 2005 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

It has been a good week for fishing. In fact, I have so many pictures some of you may not make it until next week! We have seen it all from Wahoo to Whiting and everything in between. Let’s start offshore. the Charter Boats are catching lots of small Dolphin and some nice Wahoo. I hear bottom fishing has also been excellent. In fact, we weighed in a seven and a half pound Vermillion Snapper. That’s big. Closer to shore, some Spanish Mackerel have showed up on High Rock and Sheepshead Rock. The piers have started catching a few Spanish Mackerel and a lot of Blue Fish on Got-Cha-Plugs. Both piers are picking up with lots of pan fish, Black Drum, small Blue Fish and Whiting. As for the surf fishing, well, it’s hot with big Blue Fish up to ten pounds and Red Drum in all sizes. Of course the big ones are primarily caught at night. Whiting and Pompano have also hit the beach in better numbers. Flounder are slow but that did not stop Bruce Fields from Winning the Fisherman’s Post inshore Tournament with a six and a half pound flatty! Fishing is good and getting better everyday. Get out there and fish! Keep fishin and releasin… Steve and Karen Labanec Seagull Bait and Tackle 910-458-7135

Big Fish!!

May 18th, 2005 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

Big fish! That’s this weeks report. Like I said last week, there is not yet the large quantity we would like to see, but the size is great! Pompano at three plus pounds have been a regular visitor of the shop recently and there has been no shortage of two-pound catches. Black Drum have been another invader of the surf and they also have been bigger than usual. Some up to seven and a half pounds. Blue Fish are running in the two to three pound range and all are feeding regularly on shrimp and mullet. Fishing is great right now and getting better as the water temperatures rise. Flounder should really start improving fast and I have heard of and seen plenty of small ones. I’m just waiting to see that first big one. Off the piers, I hear Kure Beach Pier had its first run of Spanish Mackerel on Monday. These warm southwest winds will push water temps up fast! Offshore, bottom fishing is till real good. About twenty miles out is good even though King Mackerel are a little scarce. Keep fishin and releasin… Steve and Karen Labanec Seagull Bait and Tackle 910-458-7135
