Topsail Update

Fishing is good at Topsail Island. There is a bit of everything biting, but not a huge amount of anything. The piers are seeing spots, mullet, black drum, a few reds, some sheepshead and spade fish. There have been a few keeper flounder, though most are undersized. The flounder have been taken with cut bluefish, cut hardhead mullet, and live minnows and shrimp. I even one saw one keeper speckled trout. (Remember the size limit for speckled trout has increased this year to 14 inches, 10 per day max) Saw one gray trout this week. You can only keep ONE FISH PER DAY now. Min size is still 12 inches. (Check out the 2010 NC Recreational Coastal Waters Guide for Sports Fishermen; May 2010 version here.) The surf fishing is starting to get better, as more sand fleas come to the surface. If you can find fleas, you might get a large pompano on the sandbars, or sheepshead around the dock and bridge pilings. The sheepshead bite has really been on fire in the backwaters this week. There are some finger mullets and shrimp around, but not many yet. (I haven't found them)

Weather looks pretty good this week. Here is the forecast for Topsail, ShowMyWeather.com.

Looks like a great week for fishing.

Lets all send our prayers to the folks along the gulf coast that are being devasted by the oil spill. As people that live near, and depend on the water for our livelihood, lets remember, this could be us in a few years. Do we really want to take the chance that our beautiful coastline may be ruined for years by the lust for oil money? You all know my feelings on this subject, so I won't rehash it here.

Lets go fishing!

Till next time....
Tight lines!
Johnny
