Seahawk Inshore Fishing Report 6/30/09 Red Drum + Flounder + Speckled Trout = Carolina Inshore Slam

June 30th, 2009 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

The inshore fishing has been good lately with catches of red drum, speckled trout, flounder,sheephead, bluefish, and spanish mackerel.

The redfish bite has been solid with most of the fish around the 26 to 27 inch mark. Sightcasting to these fish in a foot of water is some of the funnest fishing you can do inshore. We have been catching the reds by sightcasting and blindcasting artificials. We are also fishing live baits on float rigs and carolina rigs around the marsh edges and shelly bottoms in the creeks and bays of the lower Cape Fear river.

We have been catching some nice flounder and speckled trout on jigs and live baits. We are picking up the flounder and specs at some of the same spots we are catching the reds. The sheephead bite has also been good and double digit days on these tasty fish have been common. The spanish mackerel fishing has been good right of of the beach.

Check out the photos from the past couple of weeks. These are just a few of the good catches we have had lately.

Seahawk Inshore Fishing Report 06/14/09

 Redfish, Flounder, Speckled Trout, Black Drum = Good Inshore Fishing !!!

The inshore fishing has been good lately with catches of red drum, black drum, speckled trout, flounder, sheephead, small and large bluefish.

We have had a blast fishing for redfish this past week. The reds have been schooled up on the flats, around marsh edges, shellbeds, and dock pilings. Double digit days have been common and most of the fish have been slot sized with a few drag screaming over the slot fish mixed in. The reds are being caught by sightcasting and blindcasting soft plastics, topwater plugs, and by fishing live baits on float rigs and carolina rigs. We are also picking a few speckled trout and flounder, and have hooked some large blues weighing up to 10lbs while fishing for the reds.

The speckled trout bite has turned on in the Cape Fear river. The specks are hitting soft plastic shrimp imatations, jigs, live menhaden, and live shrimp on float rigs. The flounder fishing has also been good around the Carolina Beach Inlet, Snow’s Cut, and in the river. We have also caught some good numbers of nice black drum, and picked up a few sheephead in the lower Cape Fear. The spanish mackerel fishing has been good right off the beach.

June is a shaping up to be great month for a inshore slam {redfish, flounder, and speckled trout}. Check out the photos from the past couple of weeks. It has been very rewarding watching my customers catch some nice fish and seeing the smiles on the kids faces when they catch a nice fish on light tackle.

Thanks,
