We are going to have an "EASTER WEEKEND TENT SALE" this weekend: 30%, 40%, 50% & 60% OFF Items. There will be Rod & Reel Combos, Reels, Rods, Tackle, Berkley Gulp & LOTS OF OTHER SUPPILES on sale this Friday & Saturday.
 
We are watching the weather very closely for FRIDAY. They are calling for 60% chance of showers and wind. So, FRIDAY is going to be weather depending on the TENT SALE.  But SATURDAY is going to be perfect for a TENT SALE with sunny skies.  SO COME BY FOR SOME GREAT DEALS!

 

 

 


Inshore:
 

Man, we're seeing some great Sea Mullet fishing. I will have to say we have not seen mullet run like this in a few years. Last year there was not much to it but this year they are here in good numbers. Now, don’t get me wrong not every boat is going out there and filling their coolers up but some guys have had very good trips. The mullets are like any other fish they have tails and they do move around. One day you might find them as you go into the Turning Basin; the next day they might be more toward the Coast Guard Station. You have to move around and scout for the big schools of the mullets to really catch them good. Usually the best areas are in the Turning Basin back to the Inlet and from the Dead Tree Hole back to the Cape Lookout Jetty. Spec-Rigs tipped with Bait Shrimp, Fishbites Shrimp and Fishbite Bloodworms are the best way to go for catching them.
 
Along with the Sea Mullets you are going to catch Hog Fish, Croakers and Sea Bass in the same areas on the same baits. The Gray Trout are now in the Inlet in good numbers since last week and they are some nice size fish in the 18inch range being caught. There also is good numbers of Grays hanging around the Railroad Tracks and the Beaufort High Rise Bridge. They've been catching most of the ones in the Inlet on jigging Stingsilvers and Jig Fish Lures in the 1oz to 1 1/2oz size. Also, you can catch them on Spec-Rigs tipped with Bait Shrimp.
 
I've seen a few Flounder over the last week not many but they are showing up. One of my good friends went out this week on some of the Artificial Reefs off the beach and caught a good mess of Flounder. He said they did not fish long, so he thought there was good numbers of fish around. They were using Spro 2oz Bucktails tipped with Berkley Gulp 4” Baits. I also showed him the new "MEAT Flounder Bellies" that we have in stock and he was telling me that he could not wait to try them out on a Spro Bucktail. The "MEAT Flounder Bellies" is the closest thing that I've ever seen that is not the real thing. A few Flounder have been caught in the inshore waters as well; not any big numbers but a few have moved in. If I were going to try inshore I would be fishing with Live Mud Minnows fished on a Flounder Rig.
 
Blue Fish are still showing up. I heard of a Chopper Blue Fish that was caught yeaterday at the Fort Macon that weighed around 11lbs. In the next few weeks we should really start to see good numbers of them.  Also you can go up around the Cape Lookout Rock Jetty and cast 1/2oz to 3/4oz Jig Fish Lures and catch all the 2 to 3lbs fish you want. There is also good numbers in the Inlet and in the Turning Basin areas.
 
There has been some good numbers of Black Drum hanging around the Fort Macon Rocks most people think that’s just a Surf Fishing spot but I know some customers that caught their share of fish there the other day out of a boat. They were just casting bait shrimp on bottom rigs and landing fish. But if you fish there out of a boat just keep in mind to stay off of the guys fishing from the surf. You don’t want to get right in on them. Give them their space you are in a boat that can move around and they are just trying to have some fun and catch a few fish from the surf. The advantage you have from the boat you can fish out at the very end that does not get fished that much from the anglers fishing from the surf.
 
Along with the Black Drum there have been a few schools of Red Drum working the same area. Some Finger Mullet or Cut Mullet fished on the bottom with get the job done with them.
 
There also has been some good numbers of Red Drum up around the Shark Island at the Cape. You just have to have some good weather to get up on the shoals to find them. There have been a few Redfish that have been caught around Carrot Island and the Haystacks area. Best bait to use for them now is Berkley Gulp, Live Mud Minnows,  Cut Mullet or Finger Mullet.
 
Its seems early but there are a few Sheepshead that have moved in the area. Most I've heard of have been coming off the piers up and down the water way and around the bridges. We have not brought in Live Bait for them yet but by next week we should have some on hand.
 
Speckled Trout fishing has been just great in the Neuse River in about any creek you fish. There are lots of small fish but that is a great sign for this fall. But I've seen and heard of good numbers of fish in the 3 to 4lbs class. The Yo-Zuri 3D Shrimp, Yo-Zuri 3DS Minnow and Mirrolure 17MR in the 808 BGG, Tequila Sunrise and GBG all have been working very well.

 

 
Surf / Piers:

 

We are still seeing good numbers of Puffer Fish. I'm starting to think, we have the best puffer fishing in the world. Every surf angler I talk to says we are catching plenty of puffer fish.
 
The Sea Mullets are in good numbers up and down the beaches. What I'm hearing from anglers coming up to the shop to buy Bait Shrimp is that the Bouge Pier is having one of their best years on the Sea Mullets. Lots of people just filling the coolers up.
 
As for the pier at the Beaufort High Rise they are picking up Sea Mullets, Hog Fish, Gray Trout, Skates and Sharks.
 
The Oceanna Pier is under repair and not yet open.  We will keep you informed of the progress. But surf fishing around the pier should be good.
 
Up around the Fort Macon Rocks there are some goods numbers of Black Drum. Along with some good numbers of Red Drum. We had a customer that fished up there one day last week and caught fish all day long. Best bait has been Bait Shrimp, Squid, Finger Mullet, Cut Mullet, Fish Bites and Live Mud Minnows. I have actually heard of a few Flounder that has been caught over this past week. Live Mud Minnows fished on a Flounder Rig would be the way to go to try for some Flat Fish. Yesterday I had my first report of a Chopper Blue Fish that was caught at Fort Macon Rocks. Its was around 11lbs and was caught on a Finger Mullet. There should be good numbers of Chopper Blue Fish showing up in the next few weeks.
 

 

Offshore:
 
We were seeing a great Wahoo bite but now it seems that the wind has kept a lot of people from going out. Looks like we are going to have an open window on Sunday and Monday to get Offshore. Along with the Wahoo the Black Fin Tuna and Dolphin bite has been good. The Big Rock, the Rise, 90ft drop would all be good locations to try. Medium and Large Bionic Ballyhoo have been working the best. But the Blue Water Candy Jag-Hoo’s and the Jag Rita have been working very well too. The cool thing about those new lures you don’t have to have bait you just put them out and troll.
 
I've heard of some good bottom fishing out there but it seems like the Marine Fishery has a lot of the fish closed down right now. But when they open up the Black Sea Bass there should be some very good fishing for them. I heard of guys throwing back 3 to 5lbs fish one after another. So, we will just have to wait and see on that.
 

 

 

We have the ANGLER ACTION DAYS SWEEPSTAKES going on here at the shop. It runs through April 1st - April 30. This is something you do not want to miss out on all you have to do come by the shop fill out the form and drop into the box.
