Seahawk Inshore Fishing Report 3/9/09

We have been catching good numbers of redfish the past couple of weeks. We are catching the reds on scented artificials and mud minnows fished around oyster and shell points close to shallow muddy bottoms. Most of the reds in these areas have been smaller fish with a few slot fish mixed in. The larger reds are schooled up on the flats and have been tough to catch due to the cold water temps and windy conditions. The reds on the flats will turn on with the air and water temps coming up over the next few days. The sightcasting should be good on the calm days. The reds should start showing up around docks also.

The speckled trout bite in the Cape Fear River will be getting better as the the water warms and the fish get more active and move up from their winter hideouts. The black drum should start showing up around docks and rocky bottoms in the waterway and the river. The whiting are also biting in the lower Cape Fear River.

Hopefully for the next report I will have some catches of speckled trout and black drum along with the redfish. Check out the photos from the past couple of weeks.
