Thankfully, tropical storm Andrea blew through the Ocean Isle area quickly, but still dropped a bunch of rain and the 30+ knot winds really stirred the water in some areas. However, things have been recovering and the water has been getting cleaner each day since Friday. We have still managed to find some hungry fish despite the tough conditions though. The trout and redfish bite has continued to be consistent after the storm in the areas that have had the cleanest water. The flounder fishing has slowed somewhat due to the dirty water, but there is no doubt that the fish are there to be caught, and the bite should take back off any day now. I'm going to be out of town for the next couple of days fishing the Big Rock blue marlin tournament in Morehead City, but I'm already anxious to get back to the inshore grounds, because by the time I'm get back to Ocean Isle, I fully expect the fishing to be just as good as it was before the storm.
