Matt's World of Weather - FishingCast

Temperatures should be coming back to the warm side of our seasonal averages this weekend. This bodes well for any anglers looking to pick-up some striped bass or Red Drum. Fish tend to bite more frequently in the warmer waters and through various inlets Mr. Fahrenheit is starting to push into the 60s.

Towards the deeper water there have been solid reports coming in on Blue fin near the Gulf Stream temperature gradient, most notably off the coast of the Oregon Inlet. You can expect tuna but also the occasional “Speeding Bullet”, Wahoo, in the waters south of Hatteras.

Should you enjoy enclosed fishing on the rivers and creeks, speckled trout seem to be coming back in large sizes. Additionally, puppy drum bites have been on the rise from last week and should hold into this weekend.

Additionally information ranging from sea heights as well as wind speed/direction can be found in the video portion. Otherwise, please feel free to add your comments or suggestions about fishing in the east. There is a lot of water out there that will likely turn up different results. You can add your "Nice Catch" to Carolina Camera as a picture or post your weekend catch as a comment right here. Good luck and keep an eye on the bobber.

    Red drum catches have increased quite a bit with ramp's 23, 27, 30 & 34 yielding the bulk of the catches. Black drum, puffers & banded rudderfish were caught in this same location in lesser amounts.
