Surf City Ocean Pier opened Friday to cold winds, but a nice crowd. The winner of the season fishing pass for catching the first sea mullet was a local angler familiar to all of us who fish SC Pier regularly, Paul. Paul caught the winner about 9:50am. We are glad a familiar face won the prize this year. Fishing was a bit slow, the virginia mullet Paul caught was about 10 inches long, a good frying size. There were other fish caught, very small croakers, spots, slicks (a member of the cod family, I think), and a few dogfish and skates. The wind was out of the North and very cold. A few brave souls stayed after the pass was won, but not many. My Dad and I left by 10:30am. It was just too cold for me. Dad went back Saturday and caught a nice virginia mullet that went the freezer, but nothing more. I stayed in with a bad cough. Cold and raining today. Congrats to Paul for his catch. See all my friends on the pier when the weather warms just a bit. Go ahead and say it, I know I am getting old and the cold hurts these old bones. I'll be happy when the weather warms a bit.

Till next time....

I have gotten good fishing reports from all three piers this weekend. Dogfish, sea mullets, puffers, and even a couple of spots were reported caught over the weekend. It's picking up folks. The weather is wonderful! Surf City Pier has it's Annual Grand Opening on Friday the 25th, at 6am, only a few days away. First virginia mullet wins a FREE SEASON PASS! I hope to see you out there, although I will probably be caughing my head off. So if you see an angler with no head baiting with shrimp, it's probably me. See you on the pier!



Till next time....

Here is a Video of State Record Tarpon Caught from Sea View Pier. I would have loved to see the "King Shuffle" on the end of the pier that day! What fun! Not sure when the fish was caught. I know it was several years ago. Enjoy. I did!

I have been doing a lot of cyber fishing while I've been sick. Today I found a current fishing report which is rare this time of year. It's Liveline Charters out of Wilmington, NC. 
To read this report on the Liveline Charters Website, click here.

Here are a couple of pictures to get you started.


Till next time....
Tight lines!
