Seahawk Inshore Fishing Report 6/18/10 Lots of Action in the Backwaters of the Cape Fear area !!!

June 18th, 2010 by Gillwetter Press | Comments Off

The inshore fishing has been good with catches of redfish, flounder, sheephead, speckled trout and black drum.

Redfish are the number one target species for me in the backwaters lately. The reds are schooled up on the flats, around oyster rocks, and shellbeds These fish are super strong with the warm water temps and aggressively hitting topwater plugs, jigs and live baits. Many of the fish we have caught lately have been drag screaming over the slot fish with good numbers upper slot fish mixed in. We are also picking up a few flounder and speckled trout when targeted the reds. For those that are not comfortable using artificials, I can make simple by using live baits on float rigs and bottom rigs for reds, trout, and flounder.

The flounder bite has picked up around the inlets and Cape Fear River using live menhaden, finger mullet, and mud minnows on carolina rigs. We are also catching a few speckled trout using live baits,jigs, and artificial shrimp on popping corks.

The sheephead bite continues to be good using live fiddler crabs fished close to pilings and other structure around the Cape Fear area.

I had a really good trip fishing for sheephead, redfish, and flounder with publisher Gary Hurley and editor/writer Max Gaspeny. Also check out the pictures from the past couple of weeks and the awesome short video Topwater Redfish with my son Christian. Thanks again for the video Luke.
