Seahawk Inshore Fishing Report 2/2/13 Catching reds, speckled trout, and black drum in the backwaters of the lower Cape Fear.

The inshore and backwater winter fishing is still going strong and producing catches of redfish, speckled trout, and black drum.  The speckled trout bite has been good on the warmer days with redfish and black drum biting in almost any conditions as long as the tides are right.  Most of the reds and black drum have been caught using fresh frozen shrimp. We’re also catching reds on Gulp Baits, DOA paddletails and live mud minnows.  The speckled trout are hitting Gulp Jerk Shads and DOA jerk baits.  Catching reds, black drum, and speckled trout has provided us with a lot of action and mixed bag of fish to take home for the dinner table.

Hopefully the weather will cooperate and we will continue to experience this awesome inshore action through February.  Thanks for reading the report and I should have a good one for the next couple of weeks.  Check out the photos from my recent trips.
