Fisherman's Post Topsail Island fishing report, November 16, 2017

Fisherman's Post November 16, fishing report for Topsail Island

Vinita, of Surf City Pier, reports that kings have still been biting, with fish anywhere from 10-35 lbs. being pulled in. Cut bluefish remains the best bait for the kings.
While a few spot runs have come through, they’ve been inconsistent. A decent sea mullet and pompano presence has kept anglers busy, though, and the trout bite has been off and on.

Dylan and Mason French with a pair of speckled trout. Both fish stuck Z-Man soft plastics on 1/4 oz. jigs.

Frank, of Seaview Fishing Pier, reports that the last few weeks have been slow, with no significant catches. 

Fishing on the beach around the pier has been decent for such species as sea mullet, flounder, and spots, but the fish are hanging just out of reach for pier anglers.

Sean Benson with a 24” trout that hit a Rapala V10 just before sunset.
Mike, of Native Son, reports that the main story these past few weeks has been the speckled trout action, with most fish being in the 17-22” range. The specks have started to migrate from the main channels to the smaller feeder creeks, and if you can find a concentration of bait, chances are the trout are close by.
MirrOdines have been producing the most fish, especially in electric chicken, white broken glass, and pinfish colors. Chartreuse, opening night, and green lantern-colored Z-Man MinnowZ are also working well.
Plenty of flounder can be found in the same spots as the trout, and they will readily eat a soft plastic if you can wade through the lizardfish to get one to them.
Red drum are starting to school up and can be found in their usual winter places, such as on points and oyster bars. Thanks to outstanding water clarity, you should be able to see the drum and cast right to them.
Jim, of Plan 9 Charters, reports that king mackerel fishing remains excellent. The fish have been anywhere from 30” to 25 lbs. and are being found between 8-12 miles. Both live and dead bait are catching the kings.
False albacore are being found from the inlet out to about 10 miles offshore, where small shiny jigs and flies are producing the most fish.
Bottom fishing has been fantastic. Sea bass, grouper, and snapper are all happily biting, especially in the 70-100’ range. Deeper water has been producing some larger sea bass and a few red snapper during the mini season opener.
