Seahawk Inshore Fishing Report 8/10/09

The inshore fishing has been good this past week, especially early morning with catches of redfish, flounder, and a few speckled trout.

The redfish bite has been really good. We have been catching the reds back in the creeks, schooled up on the flats, and in deeper water along shelly bottoms in the lower Cape Fear. Double digit days have been common. Topwater plugs are working well early mornings with jigs and live bait working for the most part of the day.

We have also been catching some nice flounder and a few speckled trout on some of the same artificials and live baits that the reds have been hitting. The sheephead are also biting well on live fiddler crabs.

September fishing is right around the corner with speckled trout normally providing us with a lot of action with live shrimp and artificials. Flounder and redfish should be here in good numbers also. Check out the photos from this past week.
