Ocean Isle & Sunset Beach Fishing report

"Catching" Up

Posted on 07/20/2014

Once again, I have been slack on my fishing reports, as I have had a lot of long, hot days in the past couple of weeks.  Overall, the fishing has been and continues to be good.  We have certainly had some up and down days, mostly due to some tough weather conditions, but when we have had good weather and clean water, we have found plenty of hungry fish.  The flounder bite continues to be very good throughout the Ocean Isle area.  We have also been catching quite a few nice ones, with fish up to 5lbs this week.  The redfish action has improved as well, as I am starting to see more fish move into areas where they should be this time of year.  Hopefully, this trend will continue and we will begin to see even more reds move into the area.  Finally, the trout fishing has slowed down a bit, but that is to be expected with the hot water that late summer usually brings.  However, there are still a few areas that are holding some nice trout when we have the right conditions.  So all in all, things are still pretty good on the inshore grounds around Ocean Isle and Sunset beaches.  I only have a few spots left for the rest on July, so don't hesitate to give me a call if you are coming to the area in the next few weeks and want to do some inshore fishing.  Check out some of the highlights from the past few trips below!
