Seahawk Inshore Fishing Report 7/6/09

July 7th, 2009 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

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

We have caught some really nice redfish up to 36″ lately on the flats and marsh edges of the lower Cape Fear. There were a couple of days that we hooked and caught some of the largest reds that I have seen in less than two feet of water. The reds have been caught by sightcasting and blindcasting topwater plugs, spinner baits, and soft plastics along marsh edges and oyster rocks. They have also been caught by fishing float rigs and bottom rigs baited with live minnows and live shrimp.

We have also been catching some flounder, speckled trout, and sheephead. The flounder and speckled trout have been caught using live bait and artificials. The sheephead have been caught by using live fiddler crabs. The spanish mackerel bite has also been good within a half of a mile of the beach. Check out some of the photos from this past week.

A 36″ redfish that I caught sightcasting to a school of fish this size in less than two feet of water.

Eric with a 32″ red that hit a Skitterwalk topwater plug. Eric and I doubled up with this 32″ and my 36″. I usually don’t fish on my charters but I had to make a cast into this school.

A nice mixed bag of inshore fish caught on live baits and artificials.

The kids and adults are having a blast catching reds, specs, and flounder using the simple method of live baits on float rigs and bottom rigs around marsh edges and oyster rocks.
