Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina - Saltwater Fishing Report
Masonboro Sound

Went fishing last night in search of some Red Drum. We were throwing Redfish Magic spinnerbaits and grubs. We hit one overslot fish fish just after sundown and that was it. The fish looked a little light in color so maybe they are starting to move into the sound. This could be the beginning of some great night fishing.

Bio: Fishing the Cape Fear Area for over ten years. Fly fishing and light tackle for inshore and near shore fish year round. Come fish for Stripers from November through April and an assortment of saltwater fish April through November. I love to night fish during the summer to beat the heat and the crowds.
