What a difference the bait makes, 24-million little fishies… Next to “where’s the fish Doc?” the question I get asked more than any other is, “is better to have no bait around or too much bait in the water?” Daaaa, no bait, no fish, #bait equal fish! This past weekend, for the first time this season there were Spanish, blues, ladies and Crevalle jacks busting the little stuff along the beach and on out. An even better, we saw finger mullet and medium sized hard-head mullet riding the wave curls like a mini-mullet-blow. Bait! And although there will be a bit of a lag for predators to find out the mullet are arriving, fishing is picking up and we should be seeing the red drum, trout and flounder in the surf soon. By the way we are already seeing speckled trout and red drum at Bogue Pier.
How is the surf fishing…bottom fish? What about Old Drum fishing in the Neuse? There has been a good summer speck bite, but where are they? Any offshore action? Need an update on Bogue Banks or Topsail piers? I got it! How about a surf fishing update? Where have I been catching slot drum? Mullet Blow? What’s that and when can we expect our first mullet run? For this and much more, you can subscribe to the full “Totally Bogus Fishing Report” for less than 7-cents/day, still only $25/year. It’s getting close to summer fishing season, so there’s no reason for YOU to miss out! Just send a check for $25 and your e-mail address to:
