Ocean Isle & Sunset Beach Fishing report

Starting to look like summertime...

Posted on 05/24/2015


Memorial day marks the unofficial start to summer each year, and also the beginning of the busy season for me.  After all the bad weather that we had earlier in May, it was nice to see things finally starting to come around to where they should be the past couple weeks.  Honestly, overall the fishing has been a little slower than I would expect for this time of year, but things seem to be moving in the right direction and the fishing has been steadily picking up. We have been catching a little of everything, with the flounder bite being the most consistent fishing we've had going on for sure. As is normal this time of year, we have had to weed through a lot of undersize fish, but have been finding some nice keepers as well. The trout and redfish bite has been a little more hit and miss, but that should also continue to improve with the stable weather. Even though they have been a little more sporadic, we have been finding some small schools of trout, reds, and black drum to keep things interesting.  While I certainly would love to have a better report for you, I must report the truth, and I'm confident that we will see some vast improvement in the coming days and weeks, as we are still very early in the fishing season.  Dates throughout the month of June are starting to fill up quickly, so don't wait too late to give me a call and get a trip booked if you're going to be in the area during June!
