WSFL Fishing Report is dedicated to information about fishing the coastal and interior waters of Eastern NC!
Springtime means making babies in the fishing world. The bass are protecting their beds and their fry, so any lure that resembles a bluegill, lizard, water snake or frog is a “go to” lure. The best bets are swimming jigs, Bream looking swim baits, Walking baits and creature baits.
Saltwater fishing is amazing now. Trout fishing is excellent along with drum, flounder, and the cobia will be showing up soon. Plus spots, croakers, sea mullet, hogfish, and blue fish are hitting now.
Off shore Grouper season is here plus snappers, trigger fish and black sea bass are good bets for bottom fishing. Kings, wahoo, and tuna are good too.
Take a kid fishing and remember to pick up your trash.
It’s always a great day to go fishing. The bass are spawning and the daddy bass are protecting their eggs or fry. So any soft plastic that looks a lizard, bluegill or small snake will get bit. The big girls are shallow right now and will eat anything that swims.
The bream and crappie are schooled up and eating beetle spins, jigs, road runners, and the like.
Salt water wise, trout and puppy drum are killing it on white grubs with pink jig heads. Off shore the tuna are hitting.
Take a kid fishing. Stay out of my private lake. Also, pick up your trash.
March has arrived and the fresh water fishing is really heating up. The largemouth bass have reproduction on their minds.
The bass are fattening up to get ready to make baby bass. Jerk baits are good choices. Spinner baits are working. Also swim jigs, plastic worms and crank baits also. For those you who prefer live bait, use minnow!
The Crappie are also hitting on jigs, inline spinners and minnow. The bream ie, bluegills, red ears, green sunfish and pumpkin seeds are hitting on crickets, worms, night crawlers and beetle spins.
Catfish are hitting on everything as always.
Saltwater speaking some trout and drum are hanging around inshore. The offshore bite is a wee bit slow except for tuna.
Play hooky from work and go fishing. Take a kid fishing too.
February is National Heart Health Month and what better way to get your blood flowing than reeling in fish. On the Saltwater scene off shore fishing is good now for tuna, wahoo, and sharks. Inshore anglers are still catching trout and puppy drum.
Fresh water fishing speaking bust out the live bait. Crappie, bream and catfish are biting on minnow and crawlers. The Bass are starting to fatten up a little and getting ready for making baby bass. The best baits are swim jig, soft plastic creature baits Carolina rigged since we are in the Carolinas.
Go fishing and take a kid fishing. Please pick up your trash!
