    Default Southport fishing

    Fished the southport area the last 2 days. Day 1 I targeted whiting for 3 hours in the AM and found the bite to be slow but I did manage 12 fish with 4 being decent sized. Day 2 I targeted trout and reds around the lower Cape Fear and while I never found the trout, I did manage to catch 7, 17" reds and 1, 21" striped bass. Most fish came off submerged oyster rocks on the last hr of high tide in about 3' of water. The drum definitely preferred a small 3" swim bait in chicken on a chain color pattern on a 1/8 oz head.

    Nice report. Chicken on a chain and 1/8oz jig is my go to.
