Ocean Isle & Sunset Beach Fishing report

Fall is right around the corner!

Posted on 09/18/2013

The last couple of mornings have been sure reminders that fall is right around the corner, which means the best inshore fishing in the Ocean Isle area is right around the corner as well.  The fishing is pretty strong right now, and it will only get better as we get more cool weather.  In recent days, the redfish bite has continued to be very good throughout the area.  We're starting to find some nice schools in the skinny water of the backwater creeks, and the larger "over-slot" reds have been making a showing around the Little River Jetties.  There continue to be only a few big bull reds mixed in, but the main run of bull reds should only be a couple of weeks away.  While all of this hot redfish action is taking place, there has continued to be a consistent flounder and speckled trout bite throughout the area as well.  On Monday we managed to find several nice flounder up to 5lbs, a couple of nice trout, and a few reds to complete an inshore slam and a great mixed - bag trip, so anything and everything is possible right now in terms of which fish is biting best.  The cooler air and water temps are certainly getting all of the inshore species into feeding mode, and I'm excited to see what the coming weeks have in store.  I've got plenty of openings for the fall, so give me a call and lets get you in on some fall inshore action!
