Lots of Snapper

May 17th, 2006 by Gillwetter Press

Fishing continues to improve daily offshore, inshore and near shore. Offshore, there is a lot of Tuna and Wahoo. All are thirty miles out or better. A little closer to shore there are plenty of King Mackerel. No trophies, but plenty of snakes all around the ten to fifteen mile mark. Bottom fishing has been rather good with lots of Snapper and a few nice Grouper. Close to the hill, I am starting to hear a lot about Spanish Mackerel. No giants, but if you can get out there, there are plenty of small ones. Both piers are catching Blue Fish on a regular basis along with some small Spanish and Black Drum. I’m sure there are still some Whiting around. The surf has been producing some big Blue Fish. We have heard of some real nice ones upwards of five pounds and there are still plenty of Pompano. There was a run of some big Black drum last week in the five pound + range. In the river, there are plenty of Puppy Drum in the range of size from legal all the way to twenty pounds. We still hear there is plenty of whiting down near Bald Head Island and some Trout scattered up and down the river. Flounder still remain a little small but that will change shortly. Keep fishin and releasin! Steve and Karen Labanec Seagull Bait and Tackle

John Tesh and Tom Altieri caught three tuna at 36, 38 & 40 lbs. fishing about 40 miles out.
