Kure Beach Pier Is HOT

April 12th, 2006 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

Fishing is getting better and for those who enjoy pier fishing, the Kure Beach Pier is hot right now. It may seem a little early but they’re catching plenty of Whiting and Blowfish. Yes, some are of good size and quantity is no problem. I have heard of people catching as many as forty. The surf is also improving. The people across the street from the tackle shop have caught two citation Whiting already. There are also some Black Drum and Puppy Drum down by the rocks on the south end. Things are definitely improving. There have been some Trout located lying up in the yacht basin. Some of which have also been of good size and below those Trout you’ll find some Flounder. We even heard there was a seventeen and eighteen inch fish caught. Black Drum are in the river – or should I say down the river. Whiting are becoming abundant. Affordable Charters is reporting some real good catches of Whiting. Another well known fisherman, Curt Nash, has passed away. Most remember Curt as the boyfriend of Martha – the manager of the Scotchman near Jubilee Park. He was a regular and mainly fished the open beach. He will be missed by all. Keep fishin and releasin… Steve and Karen Labanec

Whiting Caught On Shrimp At The Kure Beach Pier

April 5th, 2006 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

There were a few fish caught this past weekend. Kure Beach Pier reported Whiting being caught on Shrimp. A few Blowfish also showed up from the pier and in the surf. The river is still producing some nice Whiting and a few Puppy Drum around the islands. The warmer it gets the better the fishing will be. Offshore, there is plenty of King Mackerel around the twenty-mile mark and bottom fishing remains quite good. You know all in all it has been a rather warm winter. Bait remains in the river with both Menhaden and Mullet in good numbers. We have some bad news. Another local fisherman by the name of “Biggin” has passed away. He was a long time steady customer of Seagull Bait and Tackle and a very close friend. He could often be found on the beach just about every night especially during Drum season. Nothing could keep him off the south end at night. Now he fishes night with big Phil. The state park might have put up a gate, but some of the best fishermen around are down there every night. To everyone in his family, all of us at Seagull and Karen and I will miss Biggin very much. He will never be forgotten. Keep fishin and releasin… Steve and Karen Labanec
