Seahawk Inshore Fishing Report 4/14/09 Lots of Black Drum, a few Reds and Speckled Trout.

April 15th, 2009 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

The inshore fishing has been good over the past couple of weeks with catches of black drum, red drum, virginia mullet, and speckled trout. There are also a few bluefish and sheephead starting to show up. The spanish mackerel and flounder should move in over the next couple of weeks.

We have been catching good numbers of black drum around docks and rock piles using carolina rigs baited with fresh shrimp. Twenty to thirty fish days have been common. We are also catching a few nice reds mixed in with the blacks.

We are also catching a few speckled trout in the Cape Fear river on jigs, artificial shrimp imitations under a popping float, and live shrimp on a float rig. The trout fishing has been tough in the wide open Cape Fear due to the high winds we have lately. We should be able to catch some nice specs on the days when the wind cooperates. We are also picking a few redfish mixed in with the specs.

The shallow water redfishing has also been tough due to the winds. I am sure the fish are there we just need the winds to lay down so we can find the fish. Sightcasting and blindcasting artificials and live bait on float rigs and carolina rigs will be the way to go for the reds.

If the weather will cooperate we should have some great fishing over the next couple of weeks. Check out some of the photos from the past couple of weeks. These are just a few of the good catches we have had lately.
