Seahawk Inshore Fishing Report 1/19/10 Good Redfishing!!!

The redfish bite has really turned on in the backwaters with the warmer weather we have had over the past week. The reds are schooled up on the flats in good numbers and the sightcasting has been good on the days with light winds. We have also found some reds in the creeks and in some deeper pockets of water around low tide. We caught around fifty fish out of one hole on 1/18/10 along with two 21″ speckled trout and a 16″ flounder. We had a triple hookup out of one school of redfish on the flats and ended up with over sixty fish for the day.

My son Christian and his friend Brian fished on 1/16/10 and caught around 30 reds in the creeks and on the flats. There are also some large schools of reds in the surf along Masonboro and Lea Islands and there are some sightfishing opportunities to these fish when the winds cooperate.

The striped bass fishing is starting to pick back up in the upper Cape Fear river with the warmer weather starting to bring the water temps back up where the fish will get a little more active.

There should be some good fishing opportunities over the next couple of weeks for redfish, stripers and possibly some speckled trout. Hopefully the long periods of cold weather are gone and we will have some normal weather conditions for the rest of the winter. I should have a good fishing report for the next couple of weeks. Check out the photos from 1/16/10 and 1/18/10.
