Black Drum All Through Snow’s Cut Area

May 10th, 2006 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

Another wet weekend but there were still a few fish caught and some were just right. The offshore report was a little slow due to a stiff wind. Near shore, a few brave souls did manage to catch a few Spanish Mackerel. They were not real big but it’s a good sign. The piers have been catching their fair share of fish. Lots of Whiting and some Black Drum along with a few Blues. On occasion we hear about one or two Spanish Mackerel being caught. Surf fishing is pretty good right now. Pompano have finally showed up and some have been weighed in the two-pound range. One of this weeks pictures shows a catch that weighed two and three quarter pounds. People are also catching some Blues and a few Black Drum and of course there is always some Whiting around. Back in the river, well, there is plenty of Black Drum all through the Snow’s Cut area. Down the river people are catching some bigger Black Drum and plenty of Whiting. Also, if you catch the tide right, there are still lots of Grey Trout for the taking. Flounder? I’m hearing about a lot of small ones and the occasional twenty-inch catch. Keep fishin and releasin! Steve and Karen Labanec Seagull Bait and Tackle

The First Big Flounder Of The Year

May 3rd, 2006 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

Well it’s happened, the first big Flounder of the year has been caught and she was a nice one. Saturday in the Snow’s Cut on a piece of Shrimp and a #6 long shank hook, a seven and a quarter pound flat fish met his fate. I would love to show him to you but the gentleman would like to remain in the shadows. (No it was not Harry G.) There was also a lot of small Black Drum in the cut. In the river around Bald Head Island and the other islands in that area, a lot of decent Whiting are also feeding on shrimp on a falling tide. The surf fishing is not bad. There have been some Whiting and Pompano, a few Black Drum and even a Bluefish or two being caught on shrimp and some mullet. In between the howling winds surf fishing has been pretty decent. Both piers are having their share of luck as well. There have been lots of small Bluefish and Whiting and Forrest even told me he caught a small Spanish Mackerel last week. That’s a real good sign. All we need is a week of good weather to really fire things up. Offshore, well the weather has not been just right but the few that have dared to go out have caught some nice King Mackerel. Keep fishin and releasin… Steve and Karen Labanec

Jan and Johns’s cat Zoreo. A cat’s fantasy to have caught such a large fish.
