Carolina Beach and Wrightsville Beach Fishing Report – 4/11/12

The water temp is up and getting warmer every day. We are catching some nice whiting around the Bald Head Island area, some of these fish are in the 2lb range. These fish put a nice fight for the kids. The trick to catching these fish is to use the freshest shrimp you can find, not frozen. We are starting to see some nice speckled trout around the islands in the Cape Fear River using live shrimp on a float rig. The new penny DOAs are also working well. The red drum bite is starting to pick up around the docks of the ICW anywhere from Carolina Beach to Wrightsville Beach. Right of the beaches we are starting to catch some really big blues and a few Spanish are starting to show up also. Each day just gets better and better! So for a great day on the water give me a call!

Carolina Beach Fall Fishing Report – 9/21/11

Fishing in the Carolina Beach area continues to be strong and as the water temperatures cool the fishing is only going to get better.  We are still catching nice flounder, speckled trout, and big red fish.  The spanish mackerel bite continues right off shore. This has been putting the tasty fish in the cooler. Some of our nearby reefs are also producing some nice flounder and a few gray trout.  Now is the time to catch that “door mat” flounder that everyone talks about.

So grab the kids and lets go fishing.

Check out the photos below of this past week’s catches.
