Ocean Isle & Sunset Beach Fishing report

Inshore Update...

Posted on 09/09/2013

If you read my last report, you could probably tell I was pretty pumped about the good redfish fishing we were experiencing last week.  Thankfully, the bite continued to be good in the couple of days after my last report.  Once again we found some hungry, schooled up reds that ate pretty much everything we threw at them.  We also continued to find consistent action with the speckled trout floating live shrimp down grass and oyster shell banks on higher tides.  On the flounder front, it seems like the inshore action is improving slightly, while the offshore flounder fishing has slowed a little, but overall there are still quite a few being caught.   The fall bull redfish run is the next big event on our fishing calendar in the Ocean Isle area, and is always one of my favorite fisheries of the year.  A few big ones are already beginning to show around the inlets and there should be more and more of them showing up as the month goes on.  The last week in September through the first couple weeks of October usually mark the peak of this run, so now is the time to plan your trip if you want to chase these big reds in the 20 - 40 pound range!  Fall is almost here, and with it will come the best inshore fishing of the year, so get ready!
