South Topsail report 8/4/10

Post by Guest on Wed Aug 04, 2010 7:10 pm

The marine forecast was looking great for today and my friend Mark
from Sanford was down. So we decided to go out for a half day of
fishing. We didn’t find any decent sized menhaden close by and didn’t
want to spend all morning looking, so we headed out of the inlet around
7:30 with some nice ballyhoo.

Our first stop was the rocks off of South Topsail Beach. We hadn’t
been trolling long when the starboard long line goes to singing, nice
sized Spanish - about 5 pounds worth. Then a king takes the other long
line. After a pause, we boated another Spanish, this one just under 6
pounds and then another king.

Low tide was at 9am and about 8:30 or so the bite just died - nothing
between then and 9:45. So we decided to head offshore and fish for an
hour or so - tried a couple of spots about 8 miles out with no luck. We
needed to be finished around noon so we headed back for a few more
trips around the South Topsail rocks. Nothing except one small shark
(the only one for the day). We ended up with 2 Spanish and 2 kings -
not stellar but we had a very enjoyable morning and are having fresh
fish for dinner so no complaints here!

Way to go Mike! Glad you were able to get some catching done today. Looks like the waves are going to pick up for the rest of the week.

Thanks Gery - the Spanish cooked up nice last night - hard to beat fresh fish for supper!
