Ocean Isle & Sunset Beach Fishing report

Windy and Rainy Day Report

Posted on 05/03/2013

We have certainly been plagued with some nasty weather this past week, with cooler temperatures, lots of clouds, and rain off and on all week.  Today was no different as me and my crew for the day braved the elements in 25 knot NE winds and spitting rain.  While it certainly wasn't a good day to work on your tan, the fish didn't seem to mind the adverse conditions at all.  We spent most of the trip fishing spots at Ocean Isle Beach sheltered from the wind, and managed to find a good bite of both redfish and black drum in several of those spots.  We also managed a couple of trout bites on Sunset Beach as well.  It was very encouraging to find the fish still in a feeding mood after all the bad weather.  The long-range forecast shows warmer and drier days for next week, which will improve things even more.  I haven't made it to the big trout grounds to fish for the springtime gator trout yet,  but stand by, I'm going to make it a point to spend some time there next week, and will hopefully have good things to report! Don't forget to check the Facebook page for real-time photos and reports!
