Get ready for winter fishing season

-A A +A
By Jeffrey Weeks, Fishing Correspondent

Though the weather has stayed relatively warm for us, the wintertime fishing season is almost here. The transition to cold weather species has already begun in the water as redfish and speckled trout become the predominate species sought after by anglers with the sea mullet making a nice showing before they disappear.

One important note before I get to the fishing report: new speckled trout size and creel limits are now in effect for all North Carolina anglers. Commercial fishermen are now prohibited from possession or sale of speckled trout on the weekend.
