    FISHING REPORT

    MAY 23, 2017

    BY:  STEVE FIFER

    THE FAST ACTION IS NEARSHORE AND THE THREE MOST ACTIVE FISH ARE COBIA, SPANISH MACKEREL, AND FLOUNDER. AS THE WEATHER STABILIZES AND WATER CONDITIONS IMPROVE, THE COBIA THAT ARE HERE ARE STARTING TO COME UP TO THE SURFACE AND CRUISE LOOKING FOR FOOD. THERE ARE STILL GOOD NUMBERS OF THE BEING CAUGHT SOAKING DEAD BAIT ON THE BOTTOM AT BOTH BARDEN AND BEAUFORT INLETS, BUT THE REAL FUN COMES WHEN YOU SIGHT-FISH THEM. THEY ARE CURIOUS CREATURES AND ARE DRAWN TO SURFACE DWELLING SEA TURTLES, BIG STINGRAYS, AND BUOYS IN ADDITION TO BAIT BALLS. IT IS NOT UNUSUAL TO HAVE THEM SWIM RIGHT UP TO YOUR BOAT. A BIG BUCKTAIL WITH SOME SORT OF BRIGHT PLASTIC TRAILER WILL DRAW STRIKES AND A GULP EEL TRAILER WILL REALLY GET THEIR ATTENTION. THE SPANISH HAVE ARRIVED IN FORCE JUST IN TIME FOR MEMORIAL DAY AND THEY ARE GOOD SIZED THIS YEAR. TROLLING CLARKSPOONS BEHIND A BIRD TEASER, A SMALL PLANER, OR A SMALL IN-LINE TROLLING SINKER (1-3 OUNCE) IS ALWAYS PRODUCTIVE BUT CASTING TO THEM IS BY FAR MORE FUN. THE FISH ARE FEEDING ON SMALL GLASS MINNOWS RIGHT NOW AND CAN BE VERY PICKY WHEN IT COMES TO STRIKING A LURE. YOUR BAIT HAS TO BE THE SAME SIZE AS THEIR PREY. THAT MEANS SMALL JIGS NO HEAVIER THAN ½ OUNCE TYPICALLY. GO EVEN SMALLER IF YOU CAN’T GET BIT. DON’S GLASS MINNOW JIG AND SEA STRIKER’S JIGFISH ARE GOOD CHOICES. USE A BITE LEADER IF YOU WANT TO KEEP YOUR LURES. A 6” LENGTH OF 40# FLUORO OR MONO HELPS PREVENT BITEOFFS. THE LOCAL AR’S (285, 315, 320, 330) HAVE FLOUNDER ON THEM NOW. WITHOUT QUESTION, THE BEST WAY TO CATCH THEM IS BOTTOM BOUNCING A 2-OUNCE SPRO OR SIMILAR BUCKTAIL (WHITE IS THE #1 COLOR CHOICE BUT ANY COLOR WORKS) WITH A 4” GULP SHRIMP ATTACHED AS YOUR BOAT DRIFTS OVER STRUCTURE. FLOUNDER DO NOT LIKE HIGH-RELIEF STRUCTURE SUCH AS THE SUNKEN SHIPS THAT ARE FOUND AT EACH REEF. THEY LIKE LOW RELIEF STUFF LIKE REEF BALLS AND CONCRETE PIPES. THE YELLOW BUOYS MARKING THESE ARTIFICIAL REEFS HAVE BEEN REMOVED BY THE NCDMF, SO YOU BETTER HAVE THE NUMBERS ON YOUR GPS. IF NOT, THE ARTIFICIAL REEF GUIDE PUBLISHED BY THE NC DIVISION OF MARINE FISHERIES AND AVAILABLE FOR FREE AT THEIR BUILDING ON ARENDELL ST. IS INVALUABLE. IT IS A CRUCIAL RESOURCE.
