Surf City Fishing Report

Bass Pro Shops

Hello from Surf City! The kings are still hitting trolled baits near the beach. There are schools of spanish chasing bait just behind the breakers, but haven't heard of too many surf casting hookups. Trout are hot in new river in the mornings. Flounder and specks are still biting but have moved to deep holes just off the ICW. Try creek mouths and grass lines during high tide, and docks and piers during low for reds. As for flounder gigging, try becky's creek and virginia creek. The piers are still producing some good kings, although the action is slowing. Look for trout in the mornings and fish small finger mullets or mud minnows around the pier for flounder. A scattering of small schools of spots have been reporting, but catching numbers are small. Lady fish have been reported under the swing bridge. Good Luck!

Till next time....
Tight lines!

Topsail Island, A Short History

Local folklore claims the name, Topsail (pronounced Tops’ul), dates back to the 1700s when pirate ships roamed the coastal waters. The pirates hid their ships in the channels behind the island and waited to plunder passing merchant ships loaded with goods. Eventually the merchants became aware of this hiding place and began to watch for the tops of the pirates' sails peeking above the oak trees on the island — hence the name Topsail Island.
