May has come and gone, leaving behind a bunch of happy anglers and plenty of Redfish with sore jaws. Our trips on the Lower Cape Fear around Bald Head Island and North to Topsail Island have been nice and consistent with quality upper slot Redfish falling to flies as well as topwaters, swimbaits, spoons, and jigs. The Reds have definitely grown legs and are moving around much more than usual this time of year, as the mullett haven't moved in in numbers yet. As we get mullett and the shrimp get some size in June this will change, and the Redfish will settle in to a more consistent Summer pattern. Tailing trips on the New and Full Moons have been producing lots of activity, giving anglers multiple shots at happily tailing fish sometimes as close as 10 - 15 feet from the boat! June is sure to heat up even more, and we invite you to come out and experience the best that the Cape Fear region has to offer.
