Man!!  The fishing has picked up in the last week with the fish schooling up and going on a feeding frenzy. Right now you'll find the inlet area plus up and down the beaches more alive than anytime of the year. There's lots of bait around and the fish are taking full advantage of it. I even heard of schools of Tarpon rolling on bait last weekend. None were caught that I know of but that just shows how many fish are in the inlet and along the beach. With the weather we have coming our way the bite should get even better!!!

The Spanish fishing is just about as good as it gets "RIGHT NOW".  Last weekend and throughout this week we've had customers catching well over 50 Spanish a trip. The anglers trolling Clarkspoons, Mackerel Trees and Squid Rigs have been producing the most fish because of being able to fish more than one rod at a time. But anglers also are having great luck casting lures like Jig Fish and Spec-Rigs to schooling fish around the inlet with most of the trolling action down around the piers. Artificial reefs 315 and 285 are still producing great numbers of big Spanish in the 4lb to 7lb class. The larger Spanish are being caught on Live Finger Mullet, which we're stocking now in our tanks. Mixed in with the Spanish you're going to catch lots of Bluefish with some up to the 6lb range. They've been schooling up along the beach and inlet going crazy feeding on bait coming out of the inlet.

Well, this week the Albacore have pushed in along the beach and anglers are having some fun on light tackle fighting these small tuna. Try casting Stingsilvers, Kastmaster, Hopkins and Jig Fish lures will produce good action. Just look for the birds once you hit the inlet and along the beach you should find feeding Albacore.

King Mackerel seems to be moving in better as we had a nice catch come into the shop that were caught around the North West Places. I also heard of Kings skying in the Shipping Channel this week on bait. The bigger fish are still being caught around the 1700 Rock and AR285. With the North East blow coming it should really fire up that side next week. This is the time last year the bite really gets good with lots of fish showing up.

Speckled Trout action is already heating up since this first real water cool down. I've had good reports of limits being caught in the Haystacks and up Core Creek near the month of Adams Creek. Also, I heard of some more that were caught around the Fort Macon Jetty and in the Surf.
 
The biggest thing I'm hearing from the anglers trying to catch them in the Surf is the Blue Fish are so thick right now it's hard to get any action as the Blues are going crazy. The reports I've gotten from the anglers fishing the creeks their using Live Shrimp, 17MR’S, DOA, Gulp, Z-Man, YO-Zuri, Slayer Paddle Tails, Bass Assassin, Got-Cha Grubs and Honey Hole Grubs.
 
With the big North East blow we have coming for the next few days it should really get the trout on the move and bunched up. I talked with a customer from Virginia yesterday and he told me just this week with the water really cooling down they've been catching them like crazy.
 
I know I keep saying this but it’s setting up to a great year for our Speckled Trout maybe better than last year.

Redfish bite is getting better and better. It's been kind of off for the last two years but we're actually seeing good numbers right now plus numbers were caught on Topwater lures last weekend. The Marsh areas are holding fish you just have to hunt to find them. The Haystacks have been holding fish for the last few weeks. Cut Mullet, Live Mud Minnows fished under Popping Corks are working great.

Flounder action is "GREAT" right now, the best we've seen all year. Each week we are weighing in fish over 5lbs with the reefs really starting to hold good fish. Other areas still producing fish are AR3f5, AR285 and the Port Wall have been the best. I've been getting good comments from a lot of anglers saying they are fishing the Port Wall with luck now.
 
The Port Wall can be either good or bad but to catch them at the wall you have to put time into it. It's not a spot you can just fish for an hour and fill the cooler. It’s just not going to happen. Tim that works at the shop has to be one of the best anglers I've ever known that fishes the wall but at times even Tim will fish it and not get a bite. Then he'll go back the next day and catch three fish over 5lbs. But as far as big fish that is the best place in Morehead to catch monster fish.Another key is the right bait Live Mullet works the best there which we have IN-STOCK right now.
 
In the deeper water the bigger bait seems to produce more action. This week the guys drifting around the inlet with Live Mud Minnows have been picking up good numbers of fish. Spro Bucktails and Betts Flounder Fanatic Bucktails will produce the best in the ocean. Make sure you tipped it with a Berkley Gulp 4” bait it will make all the difference in getting a bite.

Last weekend we saw our first push of Spot over in the Beaufort Channel at the Draw Bridge. They're not here thick yet but I did see some good catches come in over the weekend. With this big North East blow on our way it will push them right in to us. This weekend could be a good bite for the Spots. You also can catch them in the Turning Basin and back toward the inlet area. Bottom rigs tipped with Live Blood Worms and Fishbite Blood Worms will be the key to filling the coolers. So, within the next two-weeks they should show up in good numbers.

The Sea Mullets are here but we're not seeing that many anglers fishing for them. But we've seen some great catches from the inlet back toward the "No Wake" zone in the Turning Basin. Fresh Shrimp, Fish Bites fished on Spec-Rigs will be the best choice for action.

To my surprise anglers are still catching the Old Drum in the Neuse River but I have a feeling this weekend will be the end of it. There will still be a few around to catch but the majority will make their move back toward the ocean. This is the time of the year anglers will start to see them show up on the east beach as they come out of the sound. Some also will be caught in our inlet as some make their way down Core Creek to the ocean.

 

Piers / Surf:

 

If you like to fish from the beach "NOW'S" the time. There's tons of Blue fish working the Surf Zone with lots of anglers catching all they want. Fresh Mullet fished on a Blue Fish Rig right off the bottom is the way to fill up a cooler. The anglers plugging for Spanish and Blue Fish are having great action and lots are being caught on Got-Cha Plugs.
 
This week there's even been good numbers of Albacore coming through to be caught. The Spanish have been coming in so close even the surf anglers have been hooking up with them over the last few days.  Flounder is being caught in the Surf Zone right now more than we've seen all year. Live Mud Minnows fished right in the wash seems to be working the best. They seem to be working better than the mullet I guess it's something different than all the mullet they're seeing come through. Also, Berkley Gulp baits have been producing good numbers of Flounder.
 
Red Drum has been working the beach but they have been hard to catch since the Blue Fish are so thick. There are good numbers of Sea Mullets and Spots beginning to show up in the Surf Zone. Fresh Shrimp and Bloodworms fished on the bottom is working the best. With the hard Northeast blow on its way for the next few days the Surf should really turn on. So, Surf anglers it's time to get you gear out and start fishing. 
The Oceanana Pier is having great action early mornings on Spanish and Blue Fish plugging off the end.  You will also be able to catch Flounder, Spot, Croakers, Puffers and Pompano using live bloodworms, fresh bait shrimp, live mud minnows and fresh finger mullet.

 

Offshore:

 

I thought the Wahoo fishing couldn't get any better but last weekend and continuing this week it has been the best we've seen in years. We've had boats coming back in with their fish that caught over 20 fish. The charter boats over the last few days are still just killing them. Most of the action has been from the Big Rock down to the Rise then down to the Swansboro Hole. The Wahoo seems to be in that 30 to 40lb range but we have weighed quite of few over 50lbs. The biggest Wahoo we've weighed have come from the 1700 Rock from guys - "King Fishing Live Bait".
 
Last weekend there were quite a few Black Fin Tuna caught in along with the Wahoo plus a few Dolphin. I talked to Jody (owner of Blue Water Candy) yesterday and he was telling me a good number of Yellow Fin have shown up off Hatteras; so, maybe we'll get a push of them to go along with the Wahoo’s. Jags, Tweener Jags, Sea Witches, Jag Hoo’s rigged with Medium or Large Ballyhoo are working very well. On Friday, we'll be stocking more Wahoo Chains on the shelves as a few of you were looking for them this past week since they've been working very well on the Hoo’s.
