Taking Care Of Your Fishing Boat

March 8th, 2006 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

Spring is just around the corner and so is the fishing. Are you ready for the season? Have you been taking care of your equipment? I hope so. Did you know that gas turns to varnish? Great if you went to the boat yard last fall and got some of that stabilizer for your gas. Or did you? That works for what’s in the tank but if you did not run the boat it’s not going to help the carburetors, so maybe that’s something you need to look at. Well, there are a few trout in the yacht basin and I still hear about some puppy drum in the waterway. Black Drum should also start showing up soon along with the Blue Fish. The water temperatures are starting to climb and sixty degrees is not far off. We are now open weekends from around nine in the morning until three in the afternoon. Around the middle of this month we will reopen on the weekdays. We are still looking to fish more and work less, so the for sale sign remains up. Hopefully it will remain a tackle shop. If you are interested, call Betsy at Walker Realty 458-3388. Red at the Trading Post is opening up in the next few days. Mike at Kure Beach Pier is still leaving the gate open so all of you with cabin fever can go wet a line. Thanks Mike, we appreciate you doing that. It’s a nice place to take a walk and enjoy our beach! See you all soon and look for that sixty degree mark and most of all… Keep fishin and releasin… Steve and Karen Labanec

Boston Mackerel

March 1st, 2006 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

Speckled Trout are in the yacht basin and running in good numbers. There have been many caught and I have even heard about some as big as five pounds. People are still catching a few Puppy Drum in the waterway. That should start improving daily as long as we do not get many cold snaps. I have not heard of many Stripped Bass being caught lately. I don’t know if all the rain has had something to do with it. Offshore, there is plenty of small King Mackerel from twenty miles out to as far as you want to go. If you travel as far out as the tower you will probably find some real nice Black Bass. I have weighed in several that were better than four pounds. We at Seagull, or should I say Karen and I, have decided to get more frequent fishing done. We are tired of missing out and besides, someone has to catch that twenty-one pound flounder, therefore we are retiring from business. The store and land are for sale and if you are interested you can call Betsy McQuillen at Walker Realty (458-3388) for more info. We will still be telling you all the local news about fishing and gathering pictures via Internet and other local fishing stores. We will keep you up-to-date on the Boston Mackerel with warmer than normal temperatures. They should be in early this year. In fact I’ve heard there are some biting about thirty miles out offshore. Keep fishin and releasin… Steve and Karen Labane.
