Minnesott Beach Fishing Reports

Early June Reort

Lewis Crew3.5 release

What a change a week can make. Bait has moved into the river and already following is the Spanish mackerel. There has been a good number report’s of a lot of Spanish with some nice ones being caught too. Some use rods and other like myself pull hand lines tagged with 00 clark spoons and my rocking wooble heads too. Its a lot of fun and good eating.

Spot and croaker have also been hitting shrimp and squid around Dawson/Oriental areas. Haven’t seen sizes but one customers said they were nice and good numbers.

Flounder has been the big news with a lot of them being caught around piers, rocks and structure in the river. Baits of choice has been Gulp, Deep Creek and mud minnows. You have to pick through them to get our supper but fun to catch.

Drum, a lot or slot fish, are up and down the river shore up tight to the bank. Carolina rigging with 2/0 or 3/0 circle hook tipped with cut bait or live mud minnows working the best. I move around with my trolling motor and get on them, then setting down power pole to catch a few before moving on. Handle these fish with care to allow survival on release.

Trout? What will happen this week? There are good numbers around in the river and sound. Normal fishing technique being careful to release health has worked. Hopefully soon we can keep a few and please if this happens; only keep what you will eat, release others for another day.

Rock are still hitting hard in New Bern as a release only fishery. Early morning and late evening the best for top water bite.

I had one of my best trips Saturday with the Lewis clan from Rockingham. They made the trip enjoyable coming to have fun and catch a few fish. I was quickly told don’t hook a fish and hand them the rod! We managed to catch fish everywhere we went. This consisted of undersize flounder, trout and 6-8 slot drum. Largest was about 21” with largest trout about 3.5 lb. We fished mostly live muds but I caught a trout or two throwing Deep Creek. Really fun for all, great to have clients also crazy as me.

For all you fly fishermen. I invite you to call or come by if I can help with any Temple Fork Outfitters fly rod, reels or accessories. I only stock Spinning rods but call help get you any of these quality products you may want. I have a customer in Raleigh has been ordering a lot and really bragging on the product as I do spinning rods.

My charter bookings are picking up so call or email soon if you would like to target any of my fisheries. I Guarantee FUN.

Be Safe on the water
