Rain, rain, go away is what I have been saying all day today and will probably be saying all day tomorrow as tropical storm Andrea passes through the area. The fishing continued to be good for the first half of the week, with the flounder, reds, and trout all continuing to bite consistently. Its has been nice to finally to have all three of the target species biting well, so that if one decided to be uncooperative one day, we have been able to easily transition into fishing for another species and finding some action with them. We also finally have a ton of bait in the area as well, which usually begins to happen this time of year. The peanut menhaden have been around for a couple of weeks now and are thick pretty much everywhere around Ocean Isle and Sunset Beaches, and the shrimp have started to show up in the creeks as well, which usually causes some good fishing to fire off this time of year. The last part of the week has literally been a washout, causing myself and pretty much all of the other guides in the area to have to cancel some trips. After all, there no use in being wet and miserable while you're fishing, because its supposed to be fun! But, we will be right back at it after the storm passes, so stand by for more reports in a couple of days.
