ProFishNC Charters: Wilmington Fishing Charters (and surrounding beaches) report through mid July:
The sun is HOT and the water temps are UP providing opportunities to “Buffalo Hunt” for big fish. The current inshore water temps are between 83 at high tide and 87 at low tide. For our offshore waters I am seeing temps steady around 84 degrees.
Up to the minute fishing report: (Water temps above observed 7/7/15)… Fishing out of the Wrightsville Beach Inlets the small glass minnows are there in the billions pressed up in so close there were “red clouds” of barely bigger than plankton flowing like a well orchestrated dance as the the spanish mackerel crashed through. Out to three miles there were albies and spanish jumping in what seemed to be a constant feeding frenzy (in reality we saw a topwater “washing machine” about every quarter mile which provided fun topwater action. Cobia are still around as Captain Shawn’s charter boat caught a 40 pounder today inshore! Its “go big or go home” time right now as there are too many big creatures lurking not to put out a BIG LINE anywhere you fish, especially with all the bait and the water temps up in the 80’s.
**Shark Fishing is Awesome Right Now!
