I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday weekend. I sure did. Fishing is very good right now. Specks are biting just about everywhere on just about any tide. You can catch them on live bait(shrimp) or artificials like GULP SW. The reds have somewhat moved to the ocean and are patroling the beaches. We did catch a flounder this week, but he was undersize and we released him.Now here’s my report:

Inshore: As mentioned above the main thing going on right now is the trout fishing. We have been having double digit days almost every time we have been out. The jetty, the ICW and the creeks are holding fish.

Near shore: Reds are in the surf along with other fishes like blues, whiting and more.

Offshore: The king mackerel bite has moved out a bit to the 23 to 42 mile areas.

Gulfstream: No reports this week.

Registrations for my fishing school are picking up. They make a nice gift. You may view the details at Rod-Man Fishing School or feel free to give me a call at 910-799-6120.

I invite you to visit my website at ” Wrightsville Beach Fishing Charters “. We have done a lot of new and exciting things and more will forthcoming. Navigation is now a snap. We will be adding videos soon, featuring fishing trips and educational themes.

Please support my sponsors…they are the best or I would not be using their products.

Let’s Go Fishing!!!

Rod-Man Report November 22, 2006

gene-miller-red-november-22.jpgHi Folks,
Happy holiday to all and don’t eat too much. The Rod-Man is on a diet and feels like everyone else should suffer too. Due to the terrible storms, rains and winds the last 3 days and continuing in tomorrow, I don’t know exactly what to say about fishing right now. It will be “pot luck” for sure.
But, I can tell you the fishing prior to the storm was fantastic and hopefully will be back to that sooner than later.Now here’s my report:

Inshore: The reds and trout have been biting the bottom of the boat out. The jetties, the docks, the creeks, the inlets, the marsh banks, all have been holding fish. We have been catching fish on GULP SW, live shrimp, dead mullet.

Nearshore: Some gray trout and miscellaneous bottom fish have been biting. I still expect a run of albacore. The water temperature is still 62-64 degrees, so a lot of fishing is in front of us.

Offshore: I have heard reports of some nice king mack catches from 23 to 42 miles out.

Gulfstream: No reports this week, but know the wahoo have been biting well and some bluefin have shown up.

Gosh, this year is winding down fast. Soon it will be boat show time and then fishing schools and before you know it, spring will be here and we start again. This year I will be at the Greensboro Bass and Saltwater Expo at the Coliseum Jan. 5-7 and the Raleigh Bass and Saltwater Expo at the Fairgrounds Jan. 12-14. My Raleigh area Rod-Man Fishing School will be February 10 and the Wilmington Rod-Man Fishing School will be March 3. Registrations for the schools are coming in and I hope to see many of you there. You can find registration information at 2007 Annual Rod-Man Fishing School

Finally, I wanted to say a big thank you to the nice folks at the Raleigh Saltwater Fishing Club for welcoming my wife and me last night. The weather was bad but inside the welcome was warm and hopefully we shared some good things about fishing.

Let’s Go Fishing!!!
