Seahawk Inshore Fishing Report 2/21/09 Good Redfishing !!!

February 22nd, 2009 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

The redfishing has been good over the past couple of weeks. Due to the cold weather and water temps, we are finding the reds laying up and sunning over shallow, dark, and soft muddy bottoms on the leeward side of grass banks and islands. This is where the water is the warmest. I am mostly having to pole up to these reds and cast artificials and mud minnows on light jig heads. The fish in these areas are very skiddish, due to clear water conditions and stealth is a must. The schools range from ten fish to one hundred fifty and are all slot sized fish. We are also catching a mixed size of reds along the oyster rocks and shell beds. These fish are easier to catch because we can stay in deeper water and use the trolling motor to cast around the points. These redfishing methods should continue over next few weeks.

There are also a few speckled trout being caught around Bald Head Island and the whiting are starting to show up along the shipping channel in the lower Cape Fear river.

The inshore fishing should gradually start to pick up around the first of March with some better numbers of speckled trout showing up in the river.

I will have another inshore fishing report the first week of March. Check out the photos from the past couple of weeks.

Seahawk Inshore Fishing Report 2/5/09 Winter Redfishing !!!

February 5th, 2009 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

We are are still catching redfish despite the cold weather we have had lately. My son Christian, his friend Wade and I caught nineteen on 2/1/09. The reds are on the flats and around shellbed points and oyster rocks. All of the fish have been caught by sightcasting and blind casting artificials.

It looks like the temps are going to get back to normal for a few days after this cold snap. Hopefully there will be some good redfishing for the next week or so. The fish are there we just need the right temperature and winds to get them to bite. I should have a better redfishing report for the next couple of weeks. Check out the photos from the past couple of weeks.
