Ocean Isle & Sunset Beach Fishing report

Mixed-Bag May!

Posted on 05/15/2019

Its hard to believe that we're already halfway through the month of May.  It seems like winter was just yesterday, but here we are with summer right around the corner.  Thankfully, we have had both good weather and good fishing so far in May, which should continue into the near future.

I know I may be beginning to sound like a broken record, but we have still had some very consistent speckeld trout fishing throughout the area.  Once again the fish are mixed in size, but there have continued to be quite a few fish in the 1.5-3lb range, and even a few 5+ pounders still showing up.  We have also been picking away at a nice mixed bag of redfish, black drum, and even a sheepshead or two while we have been trout fishing.  "You never know what you're gonna get" has really held true everytime we've gotten a bite recently.  Also, we are beginning to see a few better quality flounder being caught as well, with several specimens up to and around the 5lb range caught in the area recently, along with quite a few other nice keeper size fish.  Although not every trip has been red hot, I certainly can't complain about the quality of the fishing we had so far this season around Ocean Isle and Sunset Beaches.  I can only hope that it continues on into the summer.

As far as open dates go, I still have a few left in May and plenty scattered throughout June, but fortunately I have been steadily filling them up, so don't wait until its too late to give me a call and plan your inshore fishing trip!  Check out some of our recent catches below!
