: Spring albacore bite!

03-20-2003, 10:43 AM
The fishing the last week has been extraordinary. There are 1000's of albacore inside the inlet. For over a week it has been non-stop action, with no sign of letting up! That's only minutes from the dock. Some of the sight fishing is happening in the no-wake zone(the port) it doesn't get any closer... Fish in the 12 to 15 pounds have been the norm. 10 to 25 fish 1/2 days have been happening daily with doubles and triples happening on light tackle or the fly. The topwater action is wild, the albacore are smashing the crease fly on the surface. Not to leave the Top Dog topwater plug out, their hammering it as well. If you can break away for a morning or even an afternoon/evening trip, it will be worth it!!!! I don't send this messages often but it's crazy not to take advantage of the great fishing that's taking place in Beaufort Inlet currently. Take a break from work and really enjoy the day w/ some good fishing at the beach. Here's a few pics from the Monday and Tuesday fishing. Check out the latest fishing reports for the week, w/ pics. http://lostincyberspace.com/fishreports/lookout/default.asp

Someone have eye drops?? My eyes must be decieving me. Did I read Spring Albies? Did I see someone holding one in March?

Lucky devils you are down there. Good look and tight lines. I'm jealous now:(

How can I possibly have a great day after a report like that? I'm stuck in Atlanta! Although, I may see if the fish are runnning off the coast of the Grand Strand in South Carolina. My parents live there and I can get down to fish for a weekend for free.

The closest commercial airport is New Bern, NC 45 muinutes from Morehead City. Beaufort has a private airport for small planes. Hang tight guys warm weather is coming your way.

Talk to soon,

Dave - is the fishing any good in the early June time frame? We're looking for a place to get away for a few days, and my wife has graciously offered that it be somewhere that I can do some fishing. I won't be bringing a boat, just my gear. What are your thoughts?
