September 2010 report

Wednesday, September 22, 2010












As the weather has begun too cool, the fall fishing here in Wrightsville Beach is heating up.  False albacore and large spanish have been found on top near the beach.  We are catching these fish on spinning rods, some too light to be largemouth bass fishing with, casting small metal spoons and jigs.  If you want to test the drag of your small spinning tackle, now is the time to do it.  Offshore the bottom fishing continues to be great, with good catches of gag grouper, black sea bass and American red snapper - which unfortunately must be returned to the sea.  The gulfstream fishing has begun to heat up, with more and more wahoo being caught each week.  Keep in mind the fishing will only get better as the water temperature cools.. it is still in the lower 80s!
