FISHING REPORT
Thu, Sep 19, 2013 7:09 am

 

Well, I think fall is knocking on the door with the weather we've had over the last few days. The cool days and nights with north winds will get things happening. Already, this week we've seen a mullet run down the beach and fish are taking advantage of these easy meals. A few cool nights will really drop the water temperatures making the fish very happy.

 
Just over the last few days I've noticed the "Live Bait" in our tanks are doing much better since the water has cooled way down. We have Live Shrimp, Live Mud Minnows, Live Mullet Minnows, Live Fiddler Crabs and Live Sea Urchins all in-stock for the pretty weekend coming up.

 
Inshore / Nearshore:

Spanish fishing is still doing good this week with great catches. The schools of fish are holding from the Oceanana Pier down the beach toward the Double Tree Pier. But if you're around the inlet area at the right time they've been schooling up making it easy to catch casting lures like Spec-Rigs, Stingsilvers, Jig Fish, Kastmasters and Glass Minnow Jigs. The best bite seems to be on the high tides. Some very nice Blue Fish have moved in; just the other day we had a customer come in from the rain and they'd been catching 3 to 4lbs Blue Fish one after another trolling around the Coast Guard Station. Also, there's been some large schools of fish hanging around the Cape Lookout Shoals. Then if you want to catch some 6lb plus Spanish stop by and pick up some Live Mullet Minnows rigged on Live Bait Spanish Rigs and head to AR315 or AR285 and you should have no problem.

If you like to catch False Albacore they're moving in and are just offshore in very large schools coming this way. Albacores have already been caught along the beach and around the inlet this week. Look for the working birds and you'll probably find fish. I talked with some coast guard guys the other day and they said that there's more right off the beach than they'd ever seen.

The Flounder fishing has been very good over the last week. Tim from the shop fished two days last week mostly at AR315 and the Port Wall and just slammed them. He caught over 20 flounder with 3 of them being over 5lbs with the biggest over 6lbs. For the reef fishing it has been Spro Bucktails tipped with 4” Berkley Gulp Shrimp and along the wall and bridges it has been Live Mud Minnows or Live Mullet Minnows and we have both in stock. One of our charter boat captains brought one back this week that went over 8lbs caught while they were fishing around docks for Reds on a Live Mud Minnow.

Be on the lookout for the Spot run and Sea Mullet run. When we get a cold blast like this we'll start catching these two fish in quanities. There's already good numbers of Sea Mullet in the Shipping Channel to be caught and I've seen a few spots this week. It's still going to be a few weeks for our major fall run in the spots because they're still catching them in Virginia in good numbers. Bloodworms, Fish Bite Bloodworms and Berkley Gulp Bloodworms will be the key for Spot fishing. For the Sea Mullets nothing better than Fresh Shrimp and Spec-Rigs will be the key to fill your cooler.

The Speckled Trout bite is getting good with fish already showing up. The Haystacks is holding some keeper fish along the points and in deeper holes. In Core Creek this week some fish have shown up. The Neuse River has had some good catches over the last week. I talked to customer today that caught a few trout in the Surf Zone this week. I really feel like with this cold snap we're really going to see the bite turn on. We have plenty of Live Shrimp for the weekend plus we've been stocking trout lures all week in the shop with more plastics in-stock than we've ever had. So, we should have you covered this trout season.

The Old Drum fishing is still going strong in the Neuse. What we've seen so far it has been one of the best years in awhile. Anglers are still catching them in the early mornings on popping corks and DOA Airheads. Look for the Menhaden schools to fish around  and you should find fish. Anglers are catching up to 15 fish a day just fishing artificial. The bait fisherman are catching all they want also. We have "Fresh Mullet" in stock for the weekend if anyone wants to "GET" in on the action before they head back out to the ocean.


 
Piers / Surf:

This week good numbers of Founder are hanging right along the Surf Zone. They've been lying right up on the beach in just a few feet of water. I've talked with customers this week fishing the surf seeing several of them. Yes, there's a lot of small ones being caught but plenty are being caught for the dinner table, The surf guys doing the best have been fishing Live Mud Minnows. It seems there's a little different minnow than all the mullet running the beach so the flounder are keying in on that.
 
Spanish and Bluefish action has been good off the Oceanana Pier over the last few days. Most of the action has been early mornings on Kastmasters, Got-Cha Plugs and Hopkins. Also, there's been a great Blue Fish bite along the surf zone this week. Surf fishermen are hooking up with Finger Mullet Rigs rigged with Fresh Mullet. We haven't seen many Red Drum this week but with another day of North Wind there'll be some schools moving in to feed on the mullet. Also, Sea Mullets and Spots are being caught fishing bait shrimp and bloodworms on the bottom with bottom rigs.

 
Offshore:

Wahoo fishing has been great if not the best we've seen in awhile. Last Thursday proved to be an unreal bite. Every fish we weighed in all the boats caught limits of fish. I've never seen so many Wahoo coming by the shop to be weighed. Also, we had several nice Dolphin come to the scales. Islanders, Blue Water Candy Jags and Sea Witch Rigs all rigged on wire have been just killing the fish all in dark colors. We also have a lure called the "Wahoo Chain" that has been very deadly on the Hoo's. Anglers fish the chain alot in the Charleston area and it's just making its way up here and working very well.
 
We just got some Medium Ballyhoo back in stock to go along with the Large for the Wahoo and we have Small Ballyhoo for the Dolphin so we should be good to go for the rest of the year. The hot bite seems to be right on the Big Rock then North of the Rise.
