Kure Beach Pier & Stretch 25’s

January 4th, 2006 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

So what did you get for Christmas? A G.P.S.? A new four-stroke motor? A fancy chart plotter or depth finder? A new car or truck! Great presents right? Well, if your like me – but just won’t admit it and I’m sure at least 50% of you are – how do these things work! Oh great, it comes with a CD ROM or whatever that Frisbee looking wana-bee record shape thing is. But what do you do with it? Did anyone ever tell those companies us 40+-year-old people were not taught on computers? I can barely turn it on! I know I’ll ask one of the kids and swear them to secrecy not to say anything. Us middle aged folk need some help from the big companies. We’re not all Bill Gates or rocket scientists. How about taking some of those fishing shows that take two weeks of hard fishing to produce a half hour to show us what the man overboard button means before I throw it overboard. Reading the directions is not always the best way to learn how to work something. Anyway, Striped Bass are being caught up the river on the usual bait – Stretch 25′s. Speckled Trout are also plentiful up and down the river. This past weekend I heard they were catching Black Drum between the legs of the Kure Beach Pier. Keep fishin and releasin… Steve and Karen Labanec

Winterizing Your Boat

December 28th, 2005 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

Well, except for Stripers and Speckled Trout, it’s pretty well over for this year! But as for Stripers there are plenty up the river from the big Bridge on up to Smith Creek and they’re plentiful. Many of the Striped Bass are being taken on artificial and live baits. It’s also time to try for some of those big catfish, but you will have to travel way up the Cape Fear River. Speckled Trout seem to be very plentiful this year. Many are being taken on mirror lures but green grubs with red heads and live minnows are also working well. We have heard of Trout coming from the water way and inlet, and most of the river. Offshore, King Mackerel are still hanging around the twenty-mile mark and bottom fishing is also pretty good if and when you can get out there. This is also time for those of you who have given up for the year to think about winterizing that boat. Even though its not cold enough to freeze hard, gas laying in the tank and carburetor can quickly turn to varnish and really mess things up. So, stop by Car Quest or Tom?s Marine for some stabilizer for your gas and avoid that springtime headache. Have a very Happy and safe New Year and we will be back next week… Keep fishin and releasin… Steve and Karen Labanec
