Seahawk Inshore Fishing Report 4/12/10 Carolina Beach, Wrightsville Beach, and Southport fishing is heating up!!!

April 12th, 2010 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

The inshore fishing has been good on most days and has shown a good sign of improving for the next couple of weeks. The water is warming rapidly and flounder are starting to make their move into the inlets and backwaters. There are also some black drum, and whiting around. The sheephead, bluefish, and spanish mackerel are not far behind.

The redfish are biting well on the flats, in the creeks, around docks and rock piles. Double digit days have been common and a trip on April 10th produced 25 to 30 reds, mostly upper slot fish and a 15″ flounder all on artificials. There are also some good sightfishing opportunities for schools of reds when the wind and tides cooperate. For children and those that are not comfortable throwing artificials we can catch reds and other species by using the simple methods of fishing live baits on float rigs and bottom rigs around marsh points, docks, and rock piles.

The whiting are biting in the lower Cape Fear river and we have been catching decent numbers of these tasty fish. The speckled trout fishing has been off and should be picking up over the next couple of weeks. Within the next week or so we will have a good variety of fish to pursue in the Cape Fear area. Check out the photos from the past couple of weeks. These are just a few of the good catches we have had lately.
