Bushy Park Saltwater

PostFri Apr 02, 2010 11:36 am

Has anyone had any luck with the trout and spottails lately? We didn't make it out last weekend, but will be out there tomorrow...and I'm guessing that everyone else will be out there too. The weather is looking good for the next week or so. Also...am wondering if the bait has arrived in the creeks up there yet...any help would be appreciated. Good fishing folks!

We fished with Gulp, Badonk-A-Donks, Shrimp, and Cut Bait...caught one catfish that weighed about 6-8 lbs. on a Gulp Shrimp...and that was the only bite of the day. One bite...one fish. We saw 2 tiny schools of mullet all day in one creek and no menhaden in any of the creeks. The few fish we saw on the sonar were in about 20 ft....otherwise, the bottom looked pretty lonely. It did get pretty windy early in the day...not sure if that had anything to do with it...but it was certainly tough fishing. We are going to try again on Wednesday, but may head closer to the harbor or out to Folly River if not too windy.

Last weekend was much better. There were plenty of mullet and glass minnows in the creeks. We didn't catch any reds or trout, but we did manage 4 flounder. 1 was slightly undersize and was released, 1 threw the hook at the boat, and 2 went home for dinner with us. These were caught with a 'Money Minnow' swimming it near the bottom. The drought is over!

This past weekend the fishing was much better than it has been. One keeper flounder and a 25 1/2" spottail that was released. Also caught a couple of smaller flounder that were released...but decided to keep the 6 giant blue crabs we caught. There was a lot of action but we didn't have much luck catching any menhaden or mullet. We were glad that we brought some mud minnows along and so were the fish. I had one really huge spottail wrap me around a piling but it was fun for a few minutes. We watched some other folks nearby boat a few keeper spottails and some small flounder.

You really have to avoid the landing at low tide now. It was less than a foot the last time we hit it at dead low and we were stuck for about an hour waiting for the tide to get back in there. 2 hours before or after low tide the water is generally not more than 1.5' to 1.8' and that is ok for us but in anything larger than about 18' you might have trouble.
