We have had some good reports from Cape Lookout lately, of nice size (4lb) SPECKLED TROUT. We saw photos of a 9 pounder caught on an electric chicken Paul Brown Mirrodine. The fish were caught late afternoon on a falling tide. As far as smaller SPECS, you can find them most everywhere. Radio Island rock jetty around Sugarloaf Island, Shackelford and Haystacks. Live shrimp, mud minnows, Mirrolures and soft plastics are all working for the SPECS. We anticipate the bite will continue to improve through the holiday weekend. SEA MULLET fishing remains strong. There have been good catches just outside the Beaufort Inlet and into the shipping channel. The dead tree hole, the turning basin, pier and surf fishing are all producing some SEA MULLET. A few PUFFERS in the mix as well. Some BLACK DRUM have also been caught. Nice DRUM in the 16 – 18 inch range. Sand fleas have been very effective for the BLACKS. Some BLUEFISH along with nice GRAY TROUT have been caught by the SEA MULLET fisherman inside the inlet. We had a good report from offshore this weekend as well. The Peggy brought home 10 BLACK FIN TUNA and 2 nice size WAHOO on Saturday. With the conditions improving an offshore trip would be well worth it.
