Finally, the water cleaned up a little bit from the storm and the fish started biting again. There was a lot of action to be had on the water over the past week. The speckled trout fishing is absolutely on fire. There were even some very nice fish caught this week with some coming to the scales around the seven pound range. These fish are biting well in the waterway and around the local inlets. Anglers are catching them on live and artificial baits. The talk of the fishing community this week had to be the king mackerel bite that was happening right off the beachfront here at Carolina and Kure Beach. These fish were biting so well that both the piers had some of the best catches that they have seen in years. Kure Beach pier had two days with around twenty bites and landing ten to fifteen a day. This is an amazing fishery and makes for a great time if you get out there and go for them. Word got out fast and if you went to the beach you could see the boats strung up and down the beachfront trolling for these speedy fish. This past weekend was also the final local king mackerel tournament of the year, the Fall Brawl. One of our very own fishing teams won the event this year. Team Miller Time captained by Brent Gainey along with Ryan Wiggins, Randy Gainey, and Jason Mcdowell hauled in a whopping 44.2 pound kingfish which was large enough to hold off the other 220 boats that entered this year. Congrats guys! The fishing should stay this way as long as the weather remains the way it has. I would suggest getting out there and in on some of the action. Remember, safety first!
