Saltwater (unchanged from Aug. 21)
- Cherry Grove Pier reports that pompano, whiting, croaker and a few spots are being caught off the pier. Some barely legal flounder are also being taken, while a few weeks ago almost all of the flounder were under 14 inches.
- Surf and Pier: Perry’s reports that bluefish, whiting and pompano have all been caught in the surf, as well as some ladyfish. Nearshore: Perry’s reports that Spanish mackerel continue to run the beaches, and they are also being caught at the 3 Mile Reef. King Mackerel have also been caught a the 3 Mile Reef and out at Bilkie Bear, with cobia also coming at the 3 Mile Reef as well as other nearshore reefs. Spadefish are also at the 3 Mile Reef.
- Offshore: Georgetown Landing Marina reports that the wahoo bite is hot right now with lots of nice fish caught in the last few days. Tuna, good numbers of king mackerel, and good bottom fish including grouper have also been caught. Finally, three sailfish were released yesterday.
- Offshore: Haddrell’s Point reports that even with red snapper season closed again there is still some excellent bottom fishing including grouper in 100 feet of water on live bait and butterfly-style jigs, as well as vermillion snapper in 80-90 feet on squid and cigar minnows. Trolling is still producing some mid-sized wahoo along with scattered dolphin. Sailfish have been hit-and-miss, but the best reports have been in 350-450 feet of water.
- Hunting Island Pier reports that mostly whiting, sharpnose sharks, rays and eels have been caught off the pier.
