Fishing was good in May up until about the 19th when Tropical Storm Arthur passed through, stirring up the water.
Here’s what is in the surf and at the pier:
- Spanish Mackerel (were biting up until the 19th when the storms stirred up the water)
- Black Drum
- Virginia Mullet
- Spot (not a lot yet)
- Pompano (A few nice ones at the pier)
The first King of the season showed up on May 14, 2020 as seen in this pic I found on Twitter. This King fish was 24lbs:
The first Tarpon of the year was caught at the Surf City Pier as well. For full credit, this fish was posted on their Facebook page here. Check it out:
It looks like that it is going to be stormy again from the 28th through the 31st and windy after that. We should hopefully get into some good fishing for June..
