The full summer heat is here and obviously here to stay. Everyday this week had a high in the upper 90’s with a couple of days at 100. What this does for the fishing? Well it certainly doesn’t help it. The water over the past week has heated up to 85 degree’s inshore and pretty close to that off the hill as well. This makes the fish bite pretty spotty. There are still plenty of spanish and king mackerel around. The majority of the spanish are being caught on clark spoon’s just outside the inlets. The kings can be found in the same place as well as on further off the beach. The inshore fishing has stayed relatively   consistent with anglers catching numerous species that are considered good table fare. The flounder, trout, and redfish are sticking to their usual patterns and and habitat. Live baits are fooling these fish along with some select artificial baits. I noticed a lot more anglers trying their luck with the sheephead this past week. I also heard most that tried were able to connect on a few.
These fish can be caught using a fiddler crab for bait and dropping him beside some hard structure like pilings or the bridge. This week was the fist of many area king mackerel tournaments of the season.
The Jolly Mon, hosted by the ocean isle fishing center was a great success this year. There was 241 teams that entered the tournament with hopes to bringing home a big check. One of our local fishing team’s, Miller Time, Captained by Brent Gainey was able to bring a 32lb. Kingfish to the scales this year. His crew member Ryan Wiggins angled the fish. Good going guys.
Up next is the Got-em-On Classic held right here in Carolina Beach. Look forward to seeing some results in the next couple of weeks.
This is not only a great fishing tournament but also a great event for Carolina Beach. Look into it and look to stop by and check it out this year if you have never been. In the mean time, get out there and catch some fish. Remember, be safe!
