Fishing Report
Tue, Sep 6, 2011 7:09 am

The 4thAnnual Speckled Trout Challenge started over the weekend. This year dates have been changed to September 1st– December 31st. We changed the dates just to prevent the tournament going into January in case we have another cold winter this year possibly making a trout kill. We have not had any fish weighed in so far; but have had good numbers signing up to be this early. Remember you can sign up any time. You can sign up in December if you want too. But you need to get signed up because you cannot catch a Speckled Trout then come in to sign up. There is a 5-day waiting period once you have signed up before you can weigh your first fish in. This is a low “ENTRY FEE” tournament and fun for the whole family. Come join the fun TODAY, for more info check out the SPECKLED TROUT CHALLENGE PAGE HERE ON THE WEBSITE

WILD CARD TROUT FOR SEPTEMBER – 2.48lb who ever catches the exact weight or is the closest will be the winner of a 7ft Trout Rod.  

We have some 2012 Shimano Rods that have just arrived. The 2012 SOJOURN Spinning and Casting Rods are now in-stock. These are some of the best looking rods that I have seen for $30.99 - $ 35.99. More 2012 Shimano Rods arriving soon. 

 

Inshore: Well, the Labor Day Weekend brought good weather and some good fishing. The Bluefish and Spanish are very active now since the water has cleared up from Irene. We had Spanish busting glass minnows all the way to the Atlantic Beach Bridge over the weekend. Good numbers of them were up and down the beaches and around the Inlet. There are lots of glass minnows in the water and the Spanish and Bluefish are taking advantage of it. Some good lures to try when casting to busting fish are Glass Minnow Jigs, Jig Fish Jigs, Crippled Herrings, Kastmasters, Hopkins, Gotcha-Plugs and Pole-Kat Plugs. 

The Old Drum fishing has not slowed down there are lots of fish being caught in the Neuse River on the shoal areas. Anywhere from the mouth of Adams Creek down to the Point of Marsh is producing good numbers of fish. The best action seems to be at night but I know of guys having just as good of luck in the daytime. The fresh bait at times has been hard to find but we have a 4 pack of Large Mullet that will work. We had a few customers try it last week and they caught fish. We also have a 3 pack large Menhaden that will work also, if you cannot find any fresh bait.  In stock we have 1gal, 2 gal, 5lb and 7lb chum and plenty of custom made Old Drum Rigs. 

The Redfish in the backwaters seems to be picking up but still no large numbers of fish around. I did here of some good reports from anglers starting to find more action on the Redfish. Core Creek Bays have been good along with the Haystacks for tailing fish with the high tides that we have been having over the last week.  Carrot Island has been holding a few schools of fish also. Berkley Gulp, Gold Spoons, Redfish Magic’s, Marsh Works Spinner Baits, Badonk-A-Donk, Skitter Walks, Spook Jr’s and Z-Man Plastics all have been working well on the Redfish when you can locate them. Guys fishing Live Minnows and Cut Mullet have been having good luck on the Redfish also. 

The Sheepshead fishing still remains good around the High Rise Bridges, Port Wall and along the docks up and down the ICW. The best baits are Live Sea Urchins and Live Fiddler Crabs. 

The Flounder fishing still remains good at the AR 315, 320, 330 and any other reef or ledges that you can find. There were some good numbers caught Monday at some of the Nearshore reefs. 2oz Spro Bucktails in the Chart/White, Glow and White have been the best colors. The key to it is make sure you tip it with Berkley Gulp 4” White, Glow or Sugar Spice Glow Shrimp. As for the inside fishing you can catch Flounder along the Port Wall, Bridges, Docks, ICW Channel, behind Shackleford Banks and along Morehead City Waterfront. Live Mud Minnows fished on a Carolina Rig and Berkley Gulp have been working well. 

As for the bottom fish there has been a good mix of Sea Mullets, Gray Trout, Hog Fish, Spots and Croakers from anglers fishing the Turning Basin area with bottom rigs and Speck Rigs tipped with Shrimp and Bloodworms. 

I have heard of some good catches of Speckled Trout over the last two weeks. I talked to one customer and he was telling me that he caught several in the 3lb to 4lb range. Last week I had a guy come by the shop that caught all he wanted and left them biting. Now that sounds real good for the fall fishing. I’ve not really heard any pinpoint spots but you should find some in the Haystacks and the Core Creek area.  With these good solid reports coming in it looks like we are going to have a Fall/Winter Speckled Trout bite. 

The False Albacore have showed up in good numbers right off the beach. There were big schools working Glass Minnows over the weekend. Good lures of choice would be 1/2oz Jig Fish Jigs, Glass Minnows Jigs, & Crippled Herring's jigs in the 1/2oz size. You want your bait to be the same size of the Glass Minnows that they are feeding on. It's a little early for them to be this close but we will take it.

Piers / Surf: Irene has the Sheraton Pier shut down but the Oceanna and Bogue Inlet Piers are open and catching fish. The Spanish and Blue fishing was good over the weekend with lots of Glass Minnows and Mullet Minnows along the beach bringing fish in close. Pole Kat Plugs and Gotcha-Plugs are working well for plugging off the piers. 

The Flounder fishing is still doing well along the Surf Zone and the pilings around the piers. Live Mud Minnows fished on a Carolina Rig is the way to go for some Flounder action. 

There are a mix of bottom fish being caught Sea Mullets, Hog Fish, Spots, Croakers, Sharks, Pompano, Blue Fish and Spots all are being caught bottom fishing in the Surf Zone and off the piers. 

Since Irene has past we have been seeing some very good Redfish action around the Fort Macon area. The reds have been ranging from 24” all the way up to 38”. Last week there were lots of Redfish caught in that area using Cut Mullet fished on a Drum Rig produced the best luck.  

Offshore: The Wahoo bite still remains good at the 90ft Drop out to the Big Rock along with the Atlas Tanker area. Both areas have been producing good numbers of fish and some big ones. Medium and Large Ballyhoo has been the bait of choice, rigged up on a Wahoo Rig. Along with the Wahoo there have been some large King Mackerel in the same area. There are still Dolphin in the mix from the North West Places out to the Big Rock area most are using Small and Medium Ballyhoo rigged on a Sea Witch Rigs. 

The bottom fishing still remains good in the 30 to 35mile and out range. Most anglers having the best luck are fishing the wrecks and ledges in that mile range using Cigar Minnows, Mackerel, Squid, Squid Wings and Sardines catching Trigger Fish, Grouper, Black Sea Bass, Grunts and Ring Tails. The Blue Water Candy Roscoe and the Barefoot Decoy Squid Jigs have been working well for the deep jiggers. 

DJ Scott and Hanna Price with some nice Redfish that they caught over their Labor Day Holiday. They were fishing from the "Surf" at Fort Macon Park using Cut Bait.
