Spring 2018 Report

With the warming temperatures the fish are chewing in the inshore waters around Emerald Isle and Swansboro!

Sight fishing for Redfish remains incredible! There are schools of 25 to 500 fish cruising the flats behind the barrier islands and in the local rivers.  These fish are biting several different types of soft plastic baits and are taking an interest in topwater baits most days as well.  When the Redfish are picky live mud minnows and cut mullet has been getting the job done. This is some of our best Red Drum fishing of the year and you don't want to miss out on this great fishery!

The Speckled Trout are moving out of the local creeks and are making there way back into the rivers and sounds. Zoom and Gulp jerk baits and suspending Mirrolures have been the top producing baits for the Speckled Trout.  A few Flounder have been mixed in with the Speckled Trout as well and they will eat the same baits as the Speckled Trout.

We have also been fishing the Neuse River some, it is possible to catch anything there from Stripers, Flounder, Redfish, Large Mouth Bass, Speckled Trout and more!!

Hatteras (Chopper) Bluefish should be starting to show up any day and we usually catch some of these fish while fishing for Red Drum and Speckled Trout.

The Cobia should be showing up in about a month with the water warming up  and right behind them should be Amberjack, Spanish Mackerel, more Flounder, Sheepshead and too many more species to name.
