    FISHING REPORT

    MARCH 15, 2017

    BY:  STEVE FIFER

    JUST WHEN THINGS WERE REALLY GETTING CRANKED UP, ALONG COMES THIS STRETCH OF BLUSTERY WINTER WEATHER. WHILE IT WILL KEEP MOST FISHERMEN OFF THE WATER FOR A COUPLE OF DAYS, THE FISH WILL STILL BE THERE. IF YOU CAN GET OUT OFFSHORE THERE HAVE BEEN SOME YELLOWFIN CAUGHT AND THE BOTTOM FISHING HAS BEEN GOOD FOR SEA BASS, PORGIES, AND TRIGGERFISH. SLOPPY CONDITIONS LATELY HAVE KEPT MOST BIG BOATS AT THE DOCK. CLOSER TO THE BEACH YOU’LL FIND REAL GOOD NUMBERS OF NICE-SIZED BLUEFISH AROUND CAPE LOOKOUT, ESPECIALLY IN THE VICINITY OF THE ROCK JETTY. THERE ARE THE EARLY ARRIVING 2 TO 5 POUND CHOPPERS THAT WILL EAGERLY BITE A LURE. IF YOU THROW SOFT PLASTIC BAITS (EXCEPT MAYBE Z-MAN), EXPECT TO LOSE ONE BAIT PER BITE. THEY’LL STRIKE METAL JIGS JUST AS HARD AND YOU WON’T HAVE TO REPLACE THEM IF YOU USE A SHORT (6-8”) BITE LEADER OF 40 OR 50# MONO OR FLUOROCARBON. IT IS HARD TO BEAT A ½ TO ¾ OUNCE STINGSILVER OR SEA STRIKER JIGFISH FOR THIS BITE. NEARBY AROUND SHARK ISLAND, SCHOOLS OF BIG RED DRUM HAVE BEEN SEEN AND CAUGHT. THIS IS WHERE THOSE BIG (5-7”) SOFT PLASTIC BAITS ON A 1-2 OUNCE JIGHEAD REALLY PRODUCE…IF YOU ARE FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO SPOT A PASSING SCHOOL. THE NEARSHORE LIVE BOTTOMS, ROCKS, REEFS, AND WRECKS HAVE SEA BASS – THE DEEPER YOU FISH THE BIGGER THEY SEEM TO GET – PLUS SOME GRAY TROUT AND A FEW FLOUNDER ON THEM. A 2 OUNCE BUCKTAIL WITH A 4” GULP SHRIMP ATTACHED WILL GET BIT ALMOST EVERY TIME YOU GET IT TO THE BOTTOM ONCE YOU’RE OVER GOOD STRUCTURE. INSHORE, THE SEA MULLET ARE BITING IN THE SHIP CHANNEL JUST EAST OF THE TURNING BASIN. THE PREFERRED METHOD FOR CATCHING THEM, ALONG WITH HOGFISH AND PUFFERS, IS DRIFTING ON A MOVING TIDE AND BOUNCING A SPEC RIG BAITED WITH SMALL PIECES OF FISHBITES BLOODWORM OR BAIT SHRIMP OFF THE BOTTOM. THERE HAVE BEEN SPECKLED TROUT CAUGHT IN THE CREEKS EMPTYING INTO THE INTERCOASTAL WEST OF MOREHEAD CITY. THEY’LL BITE A 3” GULP SHRIMP, CURLY-TAILED GRUB, OR SHAD-SHAPED SOFT PLASTIC ON A JIGHEAD JUST HEAVY ENOUGH TO HIT THE BOTTOM; USUALLY NOTHING MORE THAN 1/8TH TO ¼ OUNCE.
