Topsail Fishing

My sources say "fishing is slow!" About the only action I know of is around the bridges in the ICW. Fish with sand fleas or the small one armed crabs. I can't recall their proper name just now. Anglers are catching fat black drum and some nice sheepshead. Try live bait in the same spots for the occasional flounder.

On the piers, it's much the same with a few spanish and blues early and late, sharks, and the occasional flounder during the heat of the day, and a few spots, black drum, and sharks, skates, and sea mullets at night. The inlets are holding a few lady fish at night. Good fighters, jump like a tarpon! The Jolly Roger Pier reported a few kings, a tarpon with lots of hook-ups on the tarpon. They just can't get them to the pier.

Most of the charters are catching fish, the captains all have their "favorite honey holes" where they can locate and entice the fish to bite. Charters are catching reds, flounder, and the occasional speckled trout.

The weather is great! So come on down and enjoy a day of fishing, just don't be too disappointed if the bite is slow. There are plenty of sand crabs, (mole crabs) to be found at the tide line in the surf.

Construction update: CVS Pharmacy construction is moving along. Looks like they are about ready to start the walls. Just off Hwy 210 and Hwy 17 intersection near Lowes Hardware, the new Harris Teeter Supermarket has hit a growth spurt. The walls are just about up.

If you haven't checked out the new Italian restaurant in the shopping center at Hwy 210 / Hwy 50, go enjoy a meal. My friend "Yogi" is the night chef and we all know how great his cooking is. Give them a try, tell them "Fishin' Topsail" sent you.

Till next time....
Tight lines!
