Winterizing Your Boat

December 28th, 2005 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

Well, except for Stripers and Speckled Trout, it’s pretty well over for this year! But as for Stripers there are plenty up the river from the big Bridge on up to Smith Creek and they’re plentiful. Many of the Striped Bass are being taken on artificial and live baits. It’s also time to try for some of those big catfish, but you will have to travel way up the Cape Fear River. Speckled Trout seem to be very plentiful this year. Many are being taken on mirror lures but green grubs with red heads and live minnows are also working well. We have heard of Trout coming from the water way and inlet, and most of the river. Offshore, King Mackerel are still hanging around the twenty-mile mark and bottom fishing is also pretty good if and when you can get out there. This is also time for those of you who have given up for the year to think about winterizing that boat. Even though its not cold enough to freeze hard, gas laying in the tank and carburetor can quickly turn to varnish and really mess things up. So, stop by Car Quest or Tom?s Marine for some stabilizer for your gas and avoid that springtime headache. Have a very Happy and safe New Year and we will be back next week… Keep fishin and releasin… Steve and Karen Labanec

No Trouble Catching Puppy Drums

December 21st, 2005 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

It’s the week before Christmas and it’s a little quiet in the surf. But in the river, Stripers are not quiet these days. Charles Furgerson was up around the bridge and did it again this week. Two thirteen pound catches and one fifteen pounder caught on live Shiners. Also, you should not have much trouble catching a Puppy Drum either. I have heard there are plenty of them around in local waters. In the surf, well, it’s not to cold to say it’s over, but it is a little slow. I’m still hearing about some Whiting scattered around in the surf and off the piers. Offshore, I’m fairly confident the Grouper and Kings are hanging around the twenty mile mark, but no one has been out lately. We at Seagull Bait and Tackle would like to take a minute to wish everyone a wonderful Christmas and Happy Holidays. We look forward to seeing you all next spring. In the meantime! Keep fishin and releasin… Steve and Karen Labanec
