Ocean Isle Fishing Report

Early-November Update!

Posted on 11/08/2018

Well folks, November is officailly now well underway, and with it our fall fishing continues to be very good overall.  November is usually the top producing speckled trout month of the year, and this year should be no different.  The one catch however is that we are apparently in a one of those cyclical years where we have a ton of small trout around.  It happens every few years for one reason or another, and I feel a combination of factors have come together to cause it this year.  So for the time being, the trout bite is good, just as it should be, but we are having to weed through a lot of undersize fish for every keeper we get to bring back to the dock.  Our water is still a few degrees on the warm side for this point in the year, and cooler water could improve the quality of the trout we're catching, but we will just have to see. We're also still picking away at the redfish and black drum, and are still finding a flounder here and there as well.  We've also been picking a few gray trout and sheepshead off a few areas to add to the variety.

So while we may not be having the spectacular trout fishing that we had last year at the moment, there are still plenty of critters around to catch.  I still have plenty of openings so give me a call and lets go do some catching.  I'm a little short on pictures on this go-round, but hopefully I'll have a few more next time!
