July 2011 Report

Sunday, July 31, 2011








While last month proved to be quite frustrating, this July has been full of great fishing!  While the king mackerel never showed and the dolphin did not stay inshore the way we would like them to, the bottom fishing has been great.  Limits of grouper, triggerfish, snapper and black sea bass have been fairly frequent this month as the grouper are becoming more and more active.  Ledges inshore of 90 foot are providing most of the gag grouper, while the 40+ mile range has been quite productive for both scamp and red groupers.  While we cannot keep them, the American red snapper are everywhere, and I have seen the most I ever have off the Wrightsville Beach coast.  The spanish mackerel action continues to be consistent, however in the recent heat, the bite has been early and late.  Flounder fishing on the nearshore structures is getting better and better, with half day catches for the Wrightsville Beach Charter Fishing boats beginning to approach limits.  I am happy to relay a much better fishing report this month, and here’s to hoping the trend continues!
