We had much better weather over the past week. The wind laid out enough for people to be able to fish more and even go offshore a couple of time’s if they wished. Along with the better weather came some better fishing. I talked to a few anglers that made their way out the inlet in search of the larger spanish mackerel and blue fish that show up feeding on the beach this time of year. These fish were right on track with their usual pattern and found at the same old places off the beach. I heard of some spanish caught that were in the 6.5 to 8 pound range. Catching these fish casting light tackle plugs  or lure’s can make for some very exiting action. The redfish and speckled trout bite stayed right on track as it should be for this time of year. There have been some reports of a few flounder being caught. This week seemed to be the week to actually say that they are here and showing up in some descent numbers. At this point with the right tide and enough patience it seems safe to expect to catch a few or more flounder if you leave the dock in search of them. I stopped by the Carolina Beach charter boat docks and watched some of the offshore fleet come in over the weekend. This was a sight worth seeing. Only a few boats went out but they all came back with plenty of fish to hang up for show. It looked like the wahoo were feeding over the weekend and I even saw a near 50 pounder hit the dock. It is always fun to get down to the municipal dock and watch the boats come in with their catch. It is even more fun to get out there and bring in a catch of your own. Good luck over the next week and remember that safety is the most important part of a fishing trip.
