Hot Start to the Cape Lookout Season
Capt. Will Wednesday, May 16, 2018
The fishing at Cape Lookout has started off with a bang. Cobia are just starting to trickle in, hopefully it will bust wide open soon. There have been chopper bluefish at the Cape Lookout shoals, inside the hook, in Core and Back sounds. There has been excellent Spanish Mackerel casting at the Cape and they have been mixed in with Atlantic Bonito on the nearshore reefs and wrecks. The Bonito fishing has been decent to excellent, depending on the day. They will make their way out of here very soon though. A few false albacore were around mixed in with the Bonito over the last few weeks.
There hasn't been many menhaden bait balls around, but when they have been available, there have been sharks, a few cobia and a few big red drum pulled out of the baitballs. We have been on a school of large old drum on the Cape Lookout Shoals. They are hard to find, and when you do, you have one shot at them before they either spook or you have to back away because of the waves starting to break on you.
Made it out to check some of the summer inshore spots and there are already slot drum on the flats. Small undersize fish and mid to upper slot fish. That's a good sign, because it should only get better!
To book a trip for this late spring and summer inshore action call me at 919-218-8451!
Enjoy some pictures of recent fishing trips.
