Striped Bass (aka Stripers, Rockfish) fishing near Wilmington has been really consistent the past few years. Whether the better fishing can be attributed to a moratorium( both recreational and commercial) on Stripers in the Cape Fear River and its tributaries, stocking efforts, a new rock weir at Lock and Dam One in Reigelwood or a combination of all three , we have an exciting fishery that can be enjoyed all year, but especially throughout our winter months. Good fish(4-12lbs) can be expected most every trip, with fish 15-20lbs caught throughout the season.
