Fishing Great Now!
<P>Let's hope all this rain doesn't mess up the fishing because they are "chewing" real good. And I mean REAL GOOD. The king mackeral bite has been hot at the horseshoe with some mixed in Blackfin Tunas. The bait of preference has been live cigar minnows with the second best being frozen cigar minnows working best early. If the bite stops on the frozen, go jig up some live ones, also, if you can jig up some live Boston Mackeral, count how many you have and most likely, that's how many hits you will have on those also!!!
Have not heard from the Gulfstream, but, if the weather allows, I will be going there this Sunday. I can't hardly wait, I am real excited about putting out one of these new baits from BONEYARD BAIT CO. out there. I know it will be something that they have never seen before, and it should tear their nerves all to pieces!!!!
On the inside, The Speckled Trout are biting about as good as you could ever expect them too!!! Reports are that the spots are still on today off tomorrow. The best bait for the spots has been the "FISHBITES BLOODWORMS". If you have trouble finding them DUTCHMAN CREEK BAIT & TACKLE (910) 457-1221 has them, they are located beside the BRUNSWICK CTY. AIRPORT, just before the bridge that goes on to OAK ISLAND. Be sure to tell them that Capt Butch sent you there, I'd appreciate it!! Whitings, Flounder, and Bluefish are biting as well.
Grey Trout should be on the inshore reefs along with some big Red Fish. Try cut bait, squid, mullet minnows, or jigging spoons such as the "Stingsilvers", or "Diamond Jigs".
The offshore bottom bite, well unless something drastic has happened to the ocean out there, it should be good as it always is. Sometimes you just have to look a little harder from time to time to find them, but, they are there somewhere and will usually bite!!! It looks now as though we may have a decent weekend to fish, keep your fingers crossed!!!! Till next time, FISH ON!!! Capt Butch & "Private Bodie" the fish dog. www.yeahrightcharters.com
