Ocean Isle & Sunset Beach Fishing report

Early July Ocean Isle Beach Fishing Report

Posted on 07/10/2013

After a day back on the marlin grounds on Sunday, and taking a boat maintenance day on Monday, I was back on the water yesterday in hopes of finding some hungry fish after the inshore waters had a chance to settle a little more from last week's rain and holiday boat traffic.  Fortunately, we were able to do just that, with the redfish making the strongest showing among the target species during the course of the day.  The bite started off a little slow in the morning on the higher water, but we still managed to find a handful of reds to pull on.  We started out the afternoon catching a flounder and a trout on our first stop, and quickly added a couple of redfish on our next stop to complete an inshore slam.  We then made one more move where we managed land on a school of big reds, most of which were "over-slot" sized fish up to 33 inches.  We also added another nice trout and a sheepshead to the tally at the end of the trip to finish off a great day on the water.  I'll be back at it again tomorrow so stand by for more reports over the next few days.  Don't forget to "like" the facebook page so you will be able to stay up to date on the fishing action in between my reports on this site.
