SEAHAWK INSHORE FISHING REPORT 1/16/11 We’re still catchin’em !!!

The redfish bite is still going strong and should continue over the winter months as long as we get into a normal winter weather pattern. We have had some nice days lately with sunny skies and warmer temperatures. This is key this time of year and catching big numbers of reds is a good possibilty when the conditions are right.

The reds are schooled up on the flats and creeks of the lower Cape Fear area. Most of the reds are middle to upper slot fish with a few over slot and small ones mixed in. We are catching most of the reds blindcasting artificials and also picking up a few sightcasting when the winds are light. Fishing mud minnows on light jigheads is also a great way to pick up reds when the fish are finicky.

Hopefully the weather will return to normal and we’ll get some good fishing days in over the next week or two. I should have a good report for the first of Febuary. Check out a few of the photos from some of the recent trips.
