Yellow Fin Tuna & Wahoo, Thick And Hungry

April 26th, 2006 by Gillwetter Press

We saw some nice fish this past weekend. Lots of things started to happen close to shore. Let’s start in the river down around Bald Head Island. We have been hearing about a regular flow of whiting feeding mainly on the falling tide. Also some nice Black Drum and even a few Puppy Drum. In Snow’s Cut, some Croaker, Puppy drum and a few small Flounder seem to be what’s happening these days. Both the river and yacht basin are holding plenty of Menhaden and just a few Mullet Minnows. In the surf, things are also improving. Many Whiting are being taken from the Kure Beach area and along with Whiting I am beginning to hear and see some small Pompano. Yes Pompano are showing up in decent numbers. No real big ones, just lots of small ones. The piers are doing pretty well with lots of Whiting and some small Blue Fish on bait day and night. The offshore boats are catching their share as well. Out near the Gulf Stream, Yellow Fin Tuna and Wahoo are stripping G/O reels like pelicans eat bait. They’re thick and hungry. Closer in, Boston Mackerel are feeding on Mara Jigs and Sting silvers and we are hearing about a few Grey Trout. We are still open and still for sale and would love to get your fishing picture in the paper. Keep fishin and releasin… Steve and Karen Labanec
