LIVE BAIT, WE HAVE IN STOCK:

 

Live Mud Minnows

 Live Sea Urchins

 Live Shrimp

 

Live Fiddler Crabs

  

 

 

Inshore:
 
The Flounder bite is still good in the area. We're having one of the best year's that we've had in awhile on keeper fish. Last week we weighed in the biggest flounder that we've seen all year going just under 10lbs.
 
The bigger fish are all coming from the inside waters with 1st and 2nd Place fish in the 1st Annual Flounder Challenge coming from around the Port Wall area. We've also weighed in more big fish that aren't in the tournament that have came from that area also. There is just so much structure for the flounder to hide around with the deep water in that area. Most of the flounder have been caught on "Live" bait like Mud Minnows fished right on the bottom. Anglers are also having good luck drift fishing with Live Mud Minnows and Gulp Baits on a Flounder Rig. Anglers are drifting the channels and drops along the ICW Waterway.
 
The Ocean Flounder fishing is steady too with lots of fish in that 3 to 4lbs range, good keeper size fish. The deal out around the reefs like AR 315, 320, 330 and 285 is the Spro 2oz Bucktails in white tipped with a 4” Berkley Gulp Shrimp. Also, some are having luck with Live Mud Minnows.

The Old Drum fishing is really firing up in the Neuse River. You can now have luck far up as Adams Creek. Just about anywhere you can find a good shoal with deep-water access close by, you can have a chance in catching the "BIG" Old Drum. We have "Fresh" caught Menhaden bagged up that has been working well on them along with Chum. We also have you covered on Old Drum Rigs ready to fish custom made.

Spanish Fishing has been good over the last week. It seems like the bigger fish are holding around the reefs now with a few nice fish coming in to be weighed. There are still lots of Spanish that can be caught along the beaches trolling Clarkspoons on planers and trolling weights. The Bird and Squid Rigs that stay on top have been working well too. We're now picking up fish around the inlet casting small 1/2oz lures like Jig Fish and Glass Minnows Jigs. It has been somewhat slow for the cast fishing but in the last few weeks it’s starting to turn on. Late in the afternoon is also a good time to look for schooling fish on top to cast to.

A few Speckled Trout are hanging around the Haystacks and good numbers of fish over in the Neuse River to be caught working the shorelines with Topwater, Gulp and Mirrolures. The ones around the Haystacks and Core Creek are being caught on Live Mud Minnows and Live Shrimp fished under Popping Corks.
 
 I had a customer come in the shop this morning telling me that he caught one in the surf this week that was 18 inches long. If everything stays like this, we are going to have a great fall for Speckled Trout. It could be one of the best we've seen in awhile.

Sheepshead Fishing is going strong with good numbers of fish being caught around the AB High Rise Bridge, around the Port Wall and other bridges with structure all are holding good fish. We've seen more fish over 8lbs this year than ever. I've noticed over the last week "Live Sea Urchins" has been the better bait over the "Live Fiddler Crabs". We have both in stock but I know of a few anglers over the last week that could not get a bite on a Fiddler Crab then dropped a Live Sea Urchin down in the same stop and "BAM". With Sheepshead fishing it's always a good idea to take both baits because they can change anytime over one to the other.

King Mackerel fishing is starting to heat up with fish being caught from 15lbs to 40lbs. Last year fishing was so off it's good to see some fish showing up in the area. Most all of the wrecks are holding snake kings right now along with a few out in the Shipping Channel. Over on the East Side around AR285 and the Atlas Tanker you might have a better chance to hook up with a bigger fish. Most anglers are having good luck on Dead Cigar Minnows trolled on Dead Bait Rigs or fishing Live Bait.

As for the bottom fishing in the area you can pick up Sea Mullet, Croakers, Blue Fish, Sharks, Hog Fish and Puffer Fish. There is nothing really running but you will find a good mixed bag of fish to catch. It won't be long as we will start to see the Sea Mullet make the fall run. Last year it was around mid to late September and they were on fire along with some good Spot action. If you are going to bottom fish some good "fresh bait shrimp" tipped on a Bottom Rig or Spec Rig will do the trick.

 

Piers / Surf:
 
Spanish and a few Blue Fish are being caught off the piers early in the mornings on Gotcha-plugs and Pole Kat Lures. A few Flounder are being caught using Live Mud Minnows right in the Surf Zone with lots of small fish but some good keepers are being caught also.
 
Last week there were a few Red Drum caught up around the Fort Macon Rocks on cut mullet and finger mullet. Some of the Red Drum has been up to 33 inches. There are good numbers of Red Drum hanging around the Coast Guard Docks.  Sheepshead is still being caught right on the Fort Macon Rocks with "Live Sea Urchins".
 
As for the bottom fish along the beach and pier you can expect to catch a mixed bag from Sea Mullets, Puffer Fish, Hog Fish, Croakers, Sharks, Skates, Pompano and Spots. This time of year you never know what you might catch. Just fishing on the bottom with bottom rigs tipped with Bait Shrimp, Squid, Bloodworms, Mullet and Fishbites will get you some kind of action.

 

Offshore:
 
As for the Offshore, it's looking like you will be able to make it off in the next few days. The Wahoo and Sailfish bite has been good out around the 90ft Drop out to the Big Rock area with good numbers of bailer Dolphin being caught in the same area. You also can get into some bailer Dolphin action inshore around the 10 to 20 mile range around like North West Places along with a few Sailfish. Small and Medium Ballyhoo trolled on a Sea Witch will get the job done. Around the 30 to 35mile range on some live bottoms and ledges you can get into some great bottom fishing. You can catch Sea Bass, Grouper, Trigger Fish, Snappers, Ringtails and AJ’S. Anglers are having the best luck with Dead Menhaden, Squid and Cigar Minnows fished on the bottom.
