4/17/05 Swansboro Stripers - FISH'N4LIFE


Checked out the new bogue inlet today.... be CAREFULL, the inlet looks nothing like it did several weeks ago and the water is so murky you can't depend on your polarized lenses to see shallow water... hopefully the water will clear soon. The new inlet has good water (10 to 15ft) till the last 30yds... which is only 6 to 8ft. The water temps have dropped inside to 51 and the ocean to 53 to 55. Didn't see much going on.... so came back inside and found a place out of the wind this afternoon and got on a quick striper bite that lasted for 45min. Hooked up with 4 striper. The ones in the pics went between 9 and 12lbs. These fish were very aggressive and fought like heck on 8lb spinning tackle! Suspending Jerk Baits did the trick! We're still finding some good schools of reddrum in the backwaters too.
Still some open dates for April and May... Call 910-326-7512 to reserve your date.
Keep Fish'n4life and teach a young one the sport!

April fishing report

Yellowfin are still being caught on a regular basis off Swansboro Hole area and Big Rock. The Dolphin should be showing up any time now , as long as warmer water holds near the 40 fathom line. Great catches of King Mackerel were reported around the Big Rock in 66 to 68 degree water with a couple Wahoo thrown in. I have even had reports of a couple Sailfish and Marlin.
Closer to the beach the Albacore are beginning to show in good numbers. Look for the birds working bait and get ahead of the schools. Small stingsilvers should do well imitating the small baits they are chasing.
The shallow water Artificial Reefs should be picking up. The flounder are moving in and the Bluefish can get thick over the structure.
Over the next couple of weeks the fishing should continue to improve. Bait will begin to show and warmer water water will get fish moving and eating. Work areas that you think will hold fish and move till you find them. This time of year is a hit or miss, so be prepared to pull anchor and try another spot.
