Ocean Isle & Sunset Beach Fishing report

More great fall fishing!

Posted on 10/20/2013

The past week has thankfully been a busy one, both in terms of business and fishing action.  The bull redfish action over the past week has been world class, as the big 38 - 45 inch reds have been feeding heavily before they head offshore for the winter.  With much cooler weather in the forecast, the big drum fishing may soon be nearing its end, but hopefully we will get to pull on a few more before they leave.  While the cooler weather in the forecast will slow the drum bite, it should kick the speckled trout and backwater redfish bite into high gear.  Our water temperatures have remained around 70 - 72 degrees, which is a few degrees warmer than normal for this point in the year,  which has resulted in the trout and inshore redfish fishing being a little hit or miss recently.  However, despite being a little slower than normal, the have continued to bite better and better as the month has progressed.  We managed to find a hot trout bite first thing yesterday morning, catching 12 - 15 before heading off to find a bull redfish.  The flounder fishing also continues to be good, with quite a few 5 - 8 pound doormats still being caught in the area.  The flounder fishing should continue to be strong for at least 2 - 3 more weeks, depending on how quickly the water cools.  So there you have it, great fishing that is going to lead into more great fishing.  I have very few weekend days left for the rest of the season (but plenty of weekdays), so give me a call if you want to get in on the great trout and redfish fishing that is to come!  Check out the photos below of some of our catches from the past week.
