Seahawk Inshore Fishing Report 9/2/10 Fall fishing Coming on Strong!!!

The inshore fishing is good and getting better with catches of redfish, speckled trout, flounder, and sheephead. This is a great time of to get out there and get those inshore slams. There will be lots of good fishing oppurtunities coming up with cooler temps and less people on the water.

The redfish bite has been really good with lots of some drag screaming over the slot fish being caught this past week. The reds are schooled up on the flats, and some smaller schools are working the shellbanks in the creeks of the lower Cape Fear. We are catching the reds on spinnerbaits, soft plastics, and topwater plugs for those that like to fish artificials. Live baits have been the ticket, especially late morning and afternoon. Looks like it is going to be an awesome fall for redfishing.

The speckled trout fishing is picking up and will be getting better. The specs are spread out in the Cape Fear river and falling for an assortment of artificials and of course live shrimp on float rigs and bottom rigs.

The flounder fishing has been good around the grass islands and docks in the Cape Fear area on live mullet and peanut pogies. We are also picking up some flounder throwing artificials for reds and trout in the creeks of the lower Cape Fear river. Look for the flounder fishing to get better as the fall fishing season approaches.

The sheephead bite has also been good around docks and other structure using fiddler crabs. Check out the photos from the past couple of weeks. I should have a good report for the middle of Sept..
