Ocean Isle & Sunset Beach Fishing report

Still Catching...

Posted on 08/21/2013

Initially, I must apologize because I am way overdue on updating everyone on our recent fishing action.  August can be one of the toughest months of the year, as it usually brings blistering hot air and water temperatures that put both fish and fishermen into a bad mood.  Although we have certainly had some hot days this month, it definitely hasn't been as bad as it could have been, which has resulted in good, consistent fishing for all of our target species.  We have continued to pick away and the redfish, speckled trout, black drum, and sheepshead by fishing live shrimp under floats at many of the same spots that have been producing fish for the past month or so.  We have the cleanest water around right now that we have had all summer, which combined with the abundance of finger mullet that have finally shown up, has resulted in a good flounder bite recently.  Many of the usual flounder spots have been holding fish, and there have been some true "doormats" around too.  Check out the photo below of 6+ pounder that we caught yesterday.  So all in all, things are still good on the fishing scene, although I am certainly looking forward to those cool fall days and hot fall fishing, which is right around the corner!
