Seahawk Inshore Fishing Report 6/30/09 Red Drum + Flounder + Speckled Trout = Carolina Inshore Slam

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

The redfish bite has been solid with most of the fish around the 26 to 27 inch mark. Sightcasting to these fish in a foot of water is some of the funnest fishing you can do inshore. We have been catching the reds by sightcasting and blindcasting artificials. We are also fishing live baits on float rigs and carolina rigs around the marsh edges and shelly bottoms in the creeks and bays of the lower Cape Fear river.

We have been catching some nice flounder and speckled trout on jigs and live baits. We are picking up the flounder and specs at some of the same spots we are catching the reds. The sheephead bite has also been good and double digit days on these tasty fish have been common. The spanish mackerel fishing has been good right of of the beach.

Check out the photos from the past couple of weeks. These are just a few of the good catches we have had lately.
