ProFishNC Charters Fishing Report for Southeastern North Carolina including our Topsail Beach, Wrightsville Beach, Carolina Wrightsville Beach Cobia Fishing CharterBeach, Figure Eight Island and Wilmington Fishing Charters.

Summer is Here and the Fishing is HOT !   We are currently catching a huge variety of species on our “combo” Fishing Charters.  We have introduced our Fishing Combo Charters which is a good mix of fishing techniques allowing for a widely mixed bag.   On our Combo Charters we troll for Mackerel, Bluefish and Tuna… Then Bottom Fish for big Offshore Flounder, Black Seabass, Silver Snapper… We jig for Grey Trout, Jacks and Cobia… Sight fish for F. Albacore, Spanish Mackerel, Cobia & Jacks…We can top it off with inshore or jetty fishing at anytime during the charter.    I have found that many of my clients prefer this mixed approach to fishing as it allows both a huge variety of fish and lots of action!

Whats Biting Nearshore and Offshore…   Everything!   U name it and we are probably catching it.   We are catching big cobia sight fishing the buoys and bottom bouncing big jigs in the 3-10 mile range.   The huge offshore flounder are now running and we are catching them on both live baits and bottom jigs (Berkeley Gulp on a 2-3oz jighead).   Spanish and King Mackerel are here as well in good numbers as we are picking them up trolling YoZuri Deep Divers & Spoons.  Black Seabass and Silver Snapper are biting well in the 5-10 mile range picking up most of them on jigs and fresh cut bait on circle hooks.Topsail Beach Flounder Fishing Charters

Whats Biting Inshore…  Just about all of our inshore species including Flounder (we are having 20+ fish days most days), Speckled Trout, Red Drum, Black Drum, Sheepshead, Grey Trout, Bluefish, etc.   We are picking up most of our gamefish on artificials; however, live baits are key as well.  We are fishing a lot of backwaters right now including South Topsail Island Fishing the Inlet and Flats, Figure Eight Island Fishing Masons Inlet and the backwaters of north Figure Eight Island.  Wrightsville Beach Inshore Fishing includes Masonboro Inlet  and all of the tributaries and inshore fishing waters of Wrightsville Beach and Wilmington. Inshore Fishing Carolina Beach includes both the inlet, Snows Cut and the Cape Fear River.

ProFishNC Charters Early Summer Fishing Report

ProFishNC Charters Fishing Report Late Spring – Early Summer FishingKing Mackerel Fishing Topsail Beach

Our Spring Wilmington Fishing Charters including Topsail Beach, Wrightsville Beach & Carolina Beach are going STRONG!   Our Water Temps here in SE Coastal NC are from 67 – 70 Degrees currently and warming up FAST providing some Excellent Fishing.

Whats you can expect to catch right now:

Spanish Mackerel Fishing is Great right now with large schools of fish pushing up the nearshore coast.   We are catching them on YoZuri Deep Divers trolling fast.

Atlantic Bonito are still around and falling for the YoZuri Deep Divers as well.  The current run of Bonito are a little smaller class of fish than the early run Bonito.

The Bluefish are so thick in numbers they are now a nuisance while targeting mackerel.  I found that speeding up my troll speed to above 6kts keeps the bluefish off my baits and focuses more on mackerel.Spanish Mackerel Fishing Wrightsville Beach

The King Mackerel are here now as well as we have been catching good numbers of them in the 3-8 mile range.  We are catching the Kings on both live baits (slow trolled) and YoZuri Deep Divers (the larger ones).

Flounder Fishing is Heating up right now as well…    We are now catching double digit numbers on many of our inshore fishing charters and LARGE Flatties on our offshore bottom fishing charters.   I am using 1-2oz Spro Jigs paired with Berkeley Gulp and fishing the tops of nearshore ledges and structure.  These offshore Flounder are in the 2-6 lb range on average!

Red Drum Fishing is Excellent right now as well.   We are catching most of our redfish in the backwaters around oyster bars and docks.   They are hitting both live baits and Soft baits on jigheads.

Black Seabass Fishing is still going Strong with most of my Offshore Bottom Fishing Charters catching huge numbers of seabass; though not all keepers, many go in the cooler.Bonito Fishing Topsail Beach

Cobia Fishing is picking up now with the migration of the bait fish that are moving up our coast.   The cobia are falling for both live baits and artificials (they are VERY Curious Fish).

We are currently running Offshore Fishing Charters and Inshore Fishing Charters for all of our local beaches and still have availability for our Summer Fishing Trips.  We fish for it all… so if you want to target a specific species or fish a certain technique just let me know and we will make it happen.   When you fish with ProFishNC, you can expect to do it all including Trolling, Drift Fishing, Offshore Bottom Fishing, Jigging, Sight-Casting, etc.

We have a new website for our Topsail Beach Clients, take a look at our Topsail Beach Fishing Charters Website!

Don’t Forget to Pass Down the Fun you had as a child and TAKE YOUR KIDS FISHING!
