    FISHING REPORT

    FEBRUARY 17, 2017

    BY:  STEVE FIFER

    CANDIDLY, THE FISHING AROUND MOREHEAD CITY HAS BEEN PRETTY SLOW. THERE ARE SOME SPECKLED TROUT AROUND IN THE CREEKS THAT EMPTY INTO THE INTERCOASTAL WEST TOWARD SWANSBORO, BUT THEY ARE MOSTLY SMALL. THEY’LL HIT A SCENTED SOFT PLASTIC LIKE Z-MAN OR A GULP SHRIMP ON A LIGHT JIGHEAD. THE REDFISH ARE SCATTERED. THE BEST PLACE TO LOOK FOR SOME IS IN THE MARSHES AND CHANNELS BEHIND THE BARRIER ISLANDS FROM BOGUE INLET ALL THE WAY TO THE NORTH TOPSAIL AREA. PLASTIC JERKBAITS AND SWIMBAITS DRAW STRIKES AS DO GOLD WEEDLESS SPOONS. THE MOST ACTIVE FISH AROUND RIGHT NOW ARE BLACK DRUM. THEY ARE IN THE SAME CREEKS MENTIONED EARLIER AS WELL AS AROUND THE BRIDGE ABUTMENTS AND BOAT DOCKS IN THE MOREHEAD CITY AREA. BAIT SHRIMP ON A 2-HOOK BOTTOM RIG OR FISHED CAROLINA-STYLE IS THE WAY TO GO. IF YOU CAN FISH LIVE MUD MINNOWS IN THOSE SAME AREAS, EITHER UNDER A SLIP CORK OR ON A CAROLINA RIG, YOU’LL HAVE A BETTER CHANCE OF FINDING A SPECK OR REDFISH TOO. THE ROCKFISH BITE IN NEW BERN HAS SLOWED A BIT BUT THE FISH ARE STILL ACTIVE UPSTREAM FROM TOWN AS WELL AS UP THE TRENT RIVER. THEY ARE GETTING READY TO HEAD UPSTREAM TO SPAWN ON BOTH RIVERS VERY SOON. LOOK FOR THEM ON DROP-OFFS AROUND BENDS AND ALONG THE MAIN RIVER CHANNELS. A ¼ OUNCE JIGHEAD WITH A 4” OR 5” JERKBAIT IS A TOP LURE. WHITE OR PEARL ARE THE #1 COLOR CHOICES. THE SHAD ARE BEING CAUGHT IN THE NEUSE AROUND KINSTON NOW, BUT NOT YET IN BIG NUMBERS. MOST OF THE FISH ARE MALES, INDICATING THE BIG RUNS OF ROE FISH ARE YET TO ARRIVE. THE IDEAL OUTFIT FOR THIS FISHERY IS A VERY LIGHT ACTION 6’ TO 7’ SPINNING ROD MATCHED WITH A 1000 OR 2000 SIZED REEL, 4# TO 8# MONO AND A PAIR OF CURLY-TAILED 2” GRUBS ON 1/16TH TO 1/8TH HEADS TIED ABOUT 18” APART. WHITE OR CHARTREUSE GRUBS GET THE MOST STRIKES. A TIP TO GET MORE HITS IS IF YOU HAVE TO USE SNAPS OR SWIVELS, MAKE THEM AS SMALL AS POSSIBLE. BETTER YET, DON’T USE ANY HARDWARE AND SIMPLY TIE YOUR OWN TANDEM RIGS.
