  • Speckled trout season has begun

    December is here and that means speckled trout season in Brunswick County.
    Each year anglers begin their annual pursuit of the beautiful and aggressive specks as they roam inshore and in the surf in large schools, hitting a variety of baits and lures and running the tides at both predictable and totally unpredictable times.
    Unfortunately, the biggest news in trout fishing this year is the new North Carolina size and creel limits. Recreational anglers can now keep only four speckled trout with a 14-inch size limit.

  • Fish are biting inshore, offshore

    I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving weekend. Mother Nature did her part and gave us one of the nicest weather weekends we have had all year.
    It was beautiful. Offshore fishermen were finally given a multiple-day weather window to get offshore and take advantage of the area’s great late fall fishing. The Gulf Stream yielded good catches of wahoo with mixed in Mahi-mahi and blackfin tuna. The bite was not red-hot but respectable with most catches bringing in multiple wahoo, averaging in the 40- to 50- pound class.
