Kings off Beaufort Inlet
Posted On : 2013-08-12


Hello everybody, I want to thank everyone who has gone to our facebook page and liked us.  Don't forgot for those of you that haven't yet that we are giving away a very nice Daiwa Jigging reel valued at $275.00.  All you have to do is like our page on facebook and your entered to win.

Fishing offshore is starting to shift a little bit.  Most of all the dolphins caught this past weekend where small, bailer dolphins.  The wahoo bite continues to be doing very well.  Most of the charter boats getting out are coming back with 4-8 nice wahoo each day.  Most of all this actions is actually pretty spread out.  This time of the year the water is very warm and it gets a little harder to find those temperature breaks. Remember that .5-1 degree break can hold fish, so don't run by it.

 

Inshore fishing is definitely picking up.  The dredge is out of the inlet, finally, and the water is clearing up very nicely.  I was in 15' of water this weekend and could see the bottom just fine.  The Spanish mackerel bite has been in and around 40' of water for the past week to the left of the inlet.  Still not many bluefish being caught though.  King's have shown up along the beach and right around the bar outside the inlet.  They're not monsters but their are definitely some keepers with most of them ranging 22-26". 

The surf bite seemed like it picked up a little this past weekend.  I had several people bring me pictures of some nice Drum they had caught around Fort Macon.  Still lots of sharks coming out of the surf with the occasional hole producing some nice Flounder.  I had one gentleman that was fishing in front of his hotel and said he had caught 17 flounders that day with 2 of them being keepers.
