Ocean Isle & Sunset Beach Fishing report

Another "Red"-Hot October!

Posted on 10/31/2016

As I am typing this, we are about to wrap up October 2016, and just like always, it has gone by way too fast.  The past month has provided us with one of the best, if not the best bull redfish season that this area has ever seen, both in numbers of fish and the length of the fishing season.  I have to wonder how many more we would have caught had we not lost nearly a week in the middle of the season to Hurricane Matthew.  While they may be thinning out a little, there are still some fish being caught as I write this, as the warm weather has kept the water temps up throughout the month.  I can only hope that we will have them around for this long next year.  In other news, our speckled trout bite has kicked off nicely, and they are biting well on many of the normal fall trout spots.  There is a nice class of fish around at the moment as well, and hopefully that will continue to be the case.  The trout fishing should continue to be as good as it is, or even get better in coming weeks, so now is the time to come if trout are your primary target.  There are also quite a few smaller reds and black drum in the creeks right now as well, and they have been a welcomed bycatch while trout fishing.  There are even a few flounder still being caught, and a stray flounder or two will remain a possibility for the next few weeks.  I still have plenty of openings during the month of November (although the weekend dates are getting full), so please give me a call if you want to get in on what should be some hot trout action.   Check out the photos below of what we have been up to over the last month.  Finally, be sure to keep an eye on the Facebook page for more up to date photos and reports.
