Topwater Redfish Action in Southeast North Carolina

Capt Rennie Clark - 07/03/2012

Inshore and nearshore fishing has been good.  Inshore I have been catching redfish from Oak Island to Swansboro and everywhere in between.  Last Saturday June 23 I fished the Redfish Action Series Tournament out of Sneads Ferry.  We caught over 30 reds early in the day and ended up finishing in second place and first overall in points for the series.  We caught several over slot reds on topwater lures and gold spoons.  When the sun got up good and the wind started howling we switched over and pitched soft plastics.  Now is the time if you want to get on some reds throwing topwater lures.  The flounder bite has been steady and we are picking them up as by catch fishing the flats for reds.  Some have been really nice sized.  The trout bite has been good early as well.

Nearshore the spanish mackeral bite has been  good early and the bluefish are biting all day.  There is plenty of bait around inside and out.  We had several 50 fish days in the past two weeks on these two species.  Bottom fishing has been outstanding as well with plenty of black sea bass to go around as well as grunts, porgy, and some grouper.  We have had several 100 fish days on short trips bottom fishing.

Call today to schedule a trip while the action is hot!  Dates are limited so call today to book your trip.
