The best fishing of the year is now. Take a day off work. Call in sick and go fishing.

From WSF-AL: “Captain Greg from Four Seasons Guide Service took me, my wife, and 2 adult kids to the Pamlico Sound and we slayed everything that swam. Speckled trout, bluefish, croakers, sheepshead, hog fish, drum, black drum, and I hauled in a pinfish that finned me.”

Also off shore the mahi, kings, spanish, wahoo, and albacore are being caught in huge numbers. On the fresh water the heat has slowed things down a little except early morning and late at night. The bass are excellent on Whopper Ploppers, and Bubble gum trickworms. Blue gill are hitting worms, crickets and beetle spins.

Don’t go wishing, go fishing! Pick up your trash please.

It’s summer and everything is biting. But you actually have to go fishing to catch fish. The Spanish are hitting on Gotcha plugs, and Clark spoons. The Kings are good on ribbon fish and menhaden. Flounder drum trout and croakers are great on squid, shrimp and cut bait.

The fresh water bite is amazing at sunrise and sunset. Bass on topwater is really good. Scum frogs and filthy frogs are great baits and completely weedless.

Go fishing now, call in sick, and take a kid fishing.
