1st Annual Cobia Challenge

 

Don’t forget if you are going to fish the 1st Annual Cobia Challenge you need to come by the shop and sign up. There is No-Dead Line but there is a 3-day grace period before you can weigh in a fish. So, if the Cobia show up in big numbers you want to be ready to start weighing fish and not having to wait three days - missing chances with fish that you might have caught and take home the top prize with.

The Wild Card Fish for April is 36lbs. Whoever gets the closest or catches a fish right on that weight will be a winner of a BILL FISHER COBIA ROD.

 

 

INSHORE:
 
This week we are still seeing good numbers of Sea Mullets. I will say this is one of the best spring runs we've had over the last few years. The bite locations with the big numbers of fish has seemed to have changed some. They are still catching them in the Turning Basin area back to the Coast Guard Station but the big numbers have been coming from Bardens Inlet up at the Cape. I talked to a few customers over the weekend that said they could have caught all they wanted in that area. Still a few are being caught around the Dead Tree Hole but that has slowed some too. Spec-Rigs tipped with Bait Shrimp and Fish Bites is the bait of choice for the mullets.
 
There are some nice Gray Trout in the area. Most have been caught in the Port Area, Railroad Tracks, around the High Rise Bridges and the Inlet. We have weighed a few in that were around 4lbs, most are jigging Sting Silvers, Jig Fish Lures, Berkley Gulp and Spec-Rigs fished on the bottom with Bait Shrimp.
 
There are plenty of Blue Fish to be caught around the Inlet if you are trolling or you can cast Jig Fish Lures to them. There is also good numbers of Blue Fish hanging around the rocks at the Cape Lookout Jetty.
 
To our surprise we have seen our first run of SPANISH MACKEREL. There were a few caught in the Inlet last weekend with some of the charter boats reporting they are catching their limits. All the ones that were caught were trolling Clarkspoons. I've a feeling that this cold front we just had probably pushed them back off the beach some but with the warm weekend and warm next week on the way they should get thicker and thicker.
 
I just talked with a customer that has been down all week for spring break with his boys and he has been doing real good at AR315. They've been catching Gray Trout in the 18" range, Red Drum over 30", 3 to 4lbs Blue Fish and Flounder all around the reef. They mostly have been fishing Spec-Rigs tipped with Squid and Bait Shrimp on the bottom.
 
Last weekend there were a few sheepshead caught around the Port Wall in the 3 to 4lbs range, so they are moving in more and more. Also, the guys bottom fishing in the port area have been picking up a few Flounder fishing Gulp and Live Mud Minnows.
 
The Speckled Trout fishing still remains good over on the Neuse River creeks. There are a lot of small fish mixed in, so if we can keep them from getting gone over the summer we should have an outstanding fall on Speckled Trout. As far as what’s working the best the Yo-Zuri 3D Shrimp, 3DS Minnow, Mirrolure 17MR’s and Gulp Baits all are producing well.
 
We still haven't weighed in a Cobia yet.  I've heard of a few small ones being caught but haven't seen any pictures. A good friend and very good Cobia angler went out Monday to look and he said that it was just a little early he thought. He did see a few bait balls but no big numbers yet. But I did have a bait supplier give me a call yesterday to give me a report from down below us. He was telling me that around Beaufort, SC and Hilton Head area, they are seeing good numbers of Cobia coming through. So, I would say in the next few weeks we should start to see some arriving in the area. But you never know since the weather has been so warm this year who knows when they will show up it could be tomorrow or this weekend with the forecast reported.

 

 

Surf/Piers:
 
Fort Macon Park is still producing good numbers of Black Drum and Red Drum. Just the other day we had a customer come by with a good catch from there. Also, they are seeing Blue Fish, Sea Mullets, a few Flounder, Hog Fish, Puffer Fish, Sharks and Skates. Most fishing from the beach are using Bait Shrimp, Squid, Finger Mullet, Fish Bites, Live Mud Minnows and Cut Mullet all fished on the bottom. Also, heard of a few more Chopper Blue Fish that were caught in that area. I don’t think they're here yet in big numbers but in the next few weeks be on the lookout for a good run of Big Blue Fish.
 
Bouge Inlet Pier reports Sea Mullets, Blue Fish, Spanish, Croakers, Puffer Fish, Hog Fish, Sharks and Skates. Also, they have started to pick up a few Flounder off the pier on Live Mud Minnows.
 
By the looks at it the Oceanna Pier is in the works for some changes. I've heard that they have a few changes in the making that will make the anglers very happy. It is under repair construction no report of opening date but should be soon.
 
Over at the Beaufort High Rise Bridge Pier - they are catching Sea Mullets, Hog Fish, Croakers, Sharks, Skates,  Gray Trout and Blue Fish. Most are having the best luck on Bait Shrimp fished on a bottom rig.

 

 

OFFSHORE:
 

Well, its looks like as for now we are going to have a window for anglers to get Offshore tomorrow and Saturday. Last weekend was a blowout but the few that made it out at the first of week are still reporting Wahoo, Dolphin, a few Yellow Fin and a few Sail Fish. What I'm hearing the 90 ft Drop back to the Big Rock and the Swansboro Hole seems to be producing the most fish. As for lures and baits the Blue Water Candy Wahoo Rigs and Jag – A – Hoo’s have been working well. We just got in a fresh shipment of Bionic Ballyhoo for the season, so we are all stocked up on Small, Medium, Large/Select and it's all excellent bait.
