Fishing Report
Fri, Jun 15, 2012 3:06 am

 

Inshore:

The Flounder bite was good this past week at the reefs AR 315, 320 and 330 all are holding good numbers. Spro 2oz Bucktails tipped with Berkley Gulp 4” Shrimp and 4” Pogys have been the ticket for the reef Flounder. Anglers have been having some luck using Flounder Rigs with Live Mud Minnows around the inlet and behind Shackleford Banks. Also, there are fish holding around the bridges and docks and you always can have a chance to catch a Flounder around the Port Wall.

The Sheepshead fishing still remains good and even getting better. Docks, Bridges and the Port Wall are all good places to look. You can also find sheepshead around Rock Jetties. Live Fiddler Crabs and Live Sea Urchins are the best bait to catch them.

Just over this past week, we've seen some Speckled Trout caught in and around the Haystacks, they are moving into this area for the summer. Anglers are catching them on Live Mud Minnows and Berkley Gulp baits fished in the small creeks in the deeper holes. There has been some caught in Core Creek along the deep edges. Surprisingly, the most have been keepers around the 15-inch range with the biggest we've seen around 4 1/2lbs.

The Redfish seem to be moving into the marsh areas but still not in great numbers. I've heard of a few being caught around Core Creek.

Spanish fishing is still up and down one day you can go out and catch them good; then the next day not catch a one. The biggest thing is all the weather we have been dealing with, the cool fronts and then warm fronts coming through. We just can't get a stable summer pattern yet. Most of the Spanish are being caught trolling  #1 planers with Clarkspoons, Squid Rigs and Mackerel Trees.

I'm beginning to get some reports back on the "Bama 5 Clarkspoon Rig" that it's working. When they get here thick I can see anglers catching three or more Spanish at a time using this rig.

As for the Blue Fish, they're still thick around the inlet area but most are in the 1 to 3lbs range. When you can catch them feeding they will hit just about anything thrown at them.

There is still some good sized Gray Trout in the inlet and around the railroad tracks. You can catch them on Stingsilvers and Jig-fish Lures jigged off the bottom. You can also catch them on Spec Rigs tipped with bait shrimp.

Sea Mullets, Hog-fish, Black Sea Bass, Skates, Sharks and Croakers are being caught in the basin just bottom fishing with Bait Shrimp, Squid or Mullet.

Some might think that all the Cobia have moved on but we seen good numbers of fish this past week with the biggest weighing in at 62lbs. This week a lot of Cobia was caught in the inshore waters in the 20 to 30 lbs range along with a few caught in the inlet. Anglers fishing for them are having the best luck fishing with dead menhaden on the bottom.

 

Piers/Surf:

The Oceanna Pier is seeing good action on Spanish and Bluefish at times, most are casting Gotcha-plugs and Pole-kat Lures at them. Flounder fishing is picking up on the pier using Live Mud Minnows fished right around the pilings or right in the surf zone. As for the bottom fisherman there are Sea Mullets, Hog Fish, Pompano, Sharks, Skates and Croakers using bait shrimp, squid and bloodworms fished on the bottom using bottom rigs.

Fort Macon area - you have a chance of catching Red Drum, Black Drum, Sea Mullets, Blue Fish, Spanish, Hog Fish, Puffer Fish, Flounder, Sharks and Skates. Some good baits to use would be Live Mud Minnows, Bait Shrimp, Live Fiddler Crabs, Squid, Bloodworms, Finger Mullet and Cut Mullet. A good area to fish at the fort is around the Rock Jetty and around the backside near the Coast Guard Station.

If you just want to fish up and down Atlantic Beach in the surf - you will still have a good chance at all the fish listed above using the same baits.

 

Offshore:

Last weekend - the weather was perfect to go offshore and do some fishing. The reports that came back in were great, good and not so good. I talked with a few customers that went out real early before the crowds made it out and did very well on the Dolphin bringing back over 20 or more fish with some nice Gaffers in the mix. I don’t know if it was just to many boats trolling around or what but what I heard after 11am the bite just shut down. Anglers were fishing from the 90ft Drop out to the Big Rock but I've heard of Dolphin being caught as close in as North West Places.

As for the Billfish - the bite was great on Saturday for the Lady Anglers fishing the Big Rock. They caught lots of Blues, Whites and Sails more than they've seen over the past years and the bite has continued into this week.

Big Rock Report - there has only been two Big Marlin come to the Big Rock Landing to be weighed but there has been tons that have been released. It should be an exciting last two days of the Big Rock with most of boats not being able to fish because they've already fished up their 4 days. I've heard there will be just a few boats fishing on Friday and Saturday.

It would be cool to see something happen on the Leader Board over the next few days as the water is going to get rough on the anglers.

As for the bottom fishing its still remains good in the 30 to 35 mile range. I heard reports from the Atlas Tanker area with good numbers of fish last weekend with good numbers of Grouper, Sea Bass, Trigger Fish and Amber Jacks all being caught.

Be sure to take a look at the results of the "1st Annual Cobia Challenge" on the post just before this fishing report under fishing reports. Again, we want to thank all that signed up and fished the event. We hope to see all of you again next spring and more.


Now, we are signing up anglers for the "1st Annual Spanish and 1st Annual Flounder Challenge".  If you would like to join in on these come by the shop to sign up. These two will be great family fun!
