Ocean Isle & Sunset Beach Fishing report

Good fishing after the flood....

Posted on 07/04/2013

After being washed out by rain and thunderstorms for a couple of days, I was able to finally get back on the water yesterday.  I must admit I was very apprehensive about how fishing might be after all of the rain and wind we experienced over the weekend and the first part of this week.  The water around Ocean Isle and Sunset Beach was stained as can be expected with so much rainfall, but was surprisingly less dirty than I expected.  It didn't take us long to find some action yesterday, as we started getting bites as soon as we got the lines in the water at the first stop.  In the end it turned out to be a mixed bag kind of day, as we caught redfish and black drum, trout, flounder and sheepshead on different stops throughout the course of the day, giving us an inshore slam plus some for the day.  Today was nearly a carbon copy of yesterday, as we caught another inshore slam, catching of handful each of redfish, trout, and flounder, plus a few black drum thrown in for good measure.  The weather is supposed to finally stabilize some over the next few days, so that will certainly continue to improve the fishing as the water should clean up even more.  I'll be on the water again over the next couple of days so stand by for more reports or check out the facebook page for pictures and reports as well.  I still have plenty of openings for next week, so give me a call if you want to get in on some inshore action!
