Hello folks, I hope y’all are enjoying the warmer temps as much as I am! Summer is starting to show it self around eastern North Carolina. Lighter winds and warmer temps have been the story and that means good fishing! Finally three and four day windows of good temps and light winds. Enough about the weather lets talk fishing!

We have had some great Trout fishing lately, fishing south of Wrightsville beach. On good days we are catching over fifth teen trout with three to six flounder mixed in too. On Thursday 4-17, my charter caught sixteen trout and six flounder. That same day one of the trout was 27” and weighted six and a half pounds, a very nice spring trout. The trout was released alive and in good health.

We’ve been catching the trout on live shrimp and shrimp grubs. The rig we are using for the live shrimp is a float rig, fishing two to four feet deep. The shrimp grubs that seem to work the best are Saltwater Assassin (Shrimp Cocktails) in colors (Drunk monkey and Natural glow). We’ve also caught a few with a Kiwk rattling cork and a grub shrimp.

The Red fish bite has been “hit or miss” some days we go out and wack’em some days we don’t. Live bait, fresh shrimp and scented grubs have been the ticket. You just have got to find the Reds to catch them. Fish the live and cut bait on Carolina rigs. Saltwater Assassin (Blurps) in colors good penny and molting seem to work well for the scented grubs. Most of the reds are in the water way on docks and in creek mouths.

In the ocean on the nice days, the blues are biting well. Sometimes you get a few Bonita’s mixed in as well. Clark spoons in size’s one, two and three trolled behind number one planners are the trolling ticket. Casting and jigging spoons works well too around near shore artificial wrecks. Pink colored lures seem to work the best for my charters. It will not be long we will see some Spanish mackerel; I’m looking forward to that!

Gear used: Pflueger Medalist 6040 and 6035 spinning reels with 12 and 20 pound Ugly Braid line. Rods: Ugly stick lite’s in med action 7’.in length. Thanks for taking a look at this report! Get out on the water and take a kid fishing. Or better give me a call and I’ll take ya!
