Seahawk Inshore Fishing Report 06/14/09

Redfish, Flounder, Speckled Trout, Black Drum = Good Inshore Fishing !!!

The inshore fishing has been good lately with catches of red drum, black drum, speckled trout, flounder, sheephead, small and large bluefish.

We have had a blast fishing for redfish this past week. The reds have been schooled up on the flats, around marsh edges, shellbeds, and dock pilings. Double digit days have been common and most of the fish have been slot sized with a few drag screaming over the slot fish mixed in. The reds are being caught by sightcasting and blindcasting soft plastics, topwater plugs, and by fishing live baits on float rigs and carolina rigs. We are also picking a few speckled trout and flounder, and have hooked some large blues weighing up to 10lbs while fishing for the reds.

The speckled trout bite has turned on in the Cape Fear river. The specks are hitting soft plastic shrimp imatations, jigs, live menhaden, and live shrimp on float rigs. The flounder fishing has also been good around the Carolina Beach Inlet, Snow’s Cut, and in the river. We have also caught some good numbers of nice black drum, and picked up a few sheephead in the lower Cape Fear. The spanish mackerel fishing has been good right off the beach.

June is a shaping up to be great month for a inshore slam {redfish, flounder, and speckled trout}. Check out the photos from the past couple of weeks. It has been very rewarding watching my customers catch some nice fish and seeing the smiles on the kids faces when they catch a nice fish on light tackle.
