Cape Fear River, North Carolina - Saltwater Fishing Report
Brent Stanley

We have been catching lots of fish on Berkley gulp jerk shad, shrimp and swimming mullet fished on bucktail jigs and jig heads. The bigger fish seem to be biting best on the high water right up next to the grass. I have managed to catch at least one fish 10lbs or over in my last six trips, with lots of slot fish, over slot fish and pups mixed in.

The Speckled Trout bite seemed to slow down a little this week, but should pick back up with the shortening days and with cooler weather. I witnessed a large school of specks feeding on mullet that they had pinned against an oyster bed Saturday morning, but we pressed on looking for big Redfish since that was what my guest really wanted to catch. I did manage to catch a few on a topwater zara spook before we moved on.

When the weather has permitted, King Mackerel are biting close to the beach and there are some big fish being caught.

I still have the 21st of October open and all weekends in November are open at this time. Call and book your trip today.

Tight lines!!!
