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

Big Red And White Bucktails And Mann Stretch 25’s

December 14th, 2005 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

Not much has changed since last week. People are still catching a few Whiting from the Kure Beach Pier. They are also catching some Blowfish and an occasional Black Drum. In the surf, you might still catch a few Whiting but by far your best bet is Speckled Trout up and down the beachfront. Use mirror lures and grubs for bait. If you want to put the boat in the water one more time, then you’re going to need to get up in the waterway around the docks and inlet. That’s where most of the Trout and Drum are feeding. Charles Ferguson caught some nice Stripped Bass up the river. One was as big as fifteen pounds. Stripped Bass have made a slow but steady come back in the past few years. Big Red and White Bucktails and Mann Stretch 25′s are about the best bait. Though I have heard of Stripers being taken on plain old dead shrimp. If you are looking for live bait, look hard because I hear there are still a few baits up the river. Having trouble with what to buy your favorite fisher-person? Try a gift certificate. It’s a great stocking stuffer for anyone. Keep fishin and releasin… Steve and Karen Labanec Seagull Bait and Tackle 910-458-7135
