The weather has terrible this year so far with numerous fronts coming thru with high winds but the water temps are finally close to 70 degrees. Fishing has definitely picked up. Even on days where high winds persist we are catching good numbers of reds on soft plastics, spoons, and spinner baits. Its time to break out the popping corks and go to work. Fish are chewing on the outgoing tide around creeks, ditches, and grass flats as the water falls out. The past week some grown ones have been mixed in with the slot reds.

We have been catching some nice trout, black drum, flounder, and stripers.

Category 5 soft plastics have been the ticket. We had a 50 fish day on Tuesday with most of the fish coming from Cat5 shrimp minnows and manic minnows.
Got a nice striper this morning along with several blues on topwater.

Winter Fishing at its Best!!!

The Cape Fear area winter fishing has begun!! Stripers are chewing and so are the redfish. We had the best day I have ever had on the Cape Fear River for stripers recently with over thirty bites and 11 reds as by catch. Every trip is producing redfish on soft plastics. We haven’t really been targeting reds but they are mixed in everywhere we are catching stripers. The stripers are chewing everything from 3 inch plastics to 8 inch baits and everything in between. We have got them on topwater as well during low light conditions. Book your trip today for some hot cold weather action.
