LATE FALL FISHING IS IN FULL SWING

December 1st, 2017

Trip and his dad Fred with aVery Fat TroutHi Folks,
Fall fishing is great. Cool temps mean we can fish all day and the fish are more active and aggressive. The main story in our area is the trout bite, Now here is my report:
INSHORE: Trout, reds and a few flounder are biting Z-Man soft plastics on 1/4 oz. jig heads. Live shrimp will also provide lots of action.
NEAR SHORE: False albacore and bluefish are providing lots of action just off the beach. Small diamond jigs both casting and jigging will catch both fishes.
OFFSHORE: King mackerel are starring in 66-70 degree water.. about 20-25 out. Cigars and ballyhoo work well.
GULF STREAM: No Reports
CAPE FEAR RIVER: Lots of trout and reds and a few flounder are biting soft plastics and live shrimp. Whiting are biting fresh shrimp.
UPCOMING: As long as this pleasant weather holds, look for fishing to continue to be awesome.
Until Next Year (this is my last report for this year)… LET’S GO FISHING!!!

FALL FISHING IS IN FULL SWING

November 10th, 2017

Mike's 18 inch FlounderHi Folks,
It’s been a while but fishing and rod building is “busy work”. Fortunately, the water temps and air temps have cooled and it now actually feels like fall fishing. But best of all just about everything is biting! Now here’s my report:
INSHORE: Prime time! Reds, flounder and trout are biting really well. Falling tides continue to work best whether using artificials or cut bait.
NEAR SHORE: Plenty of kings are biting just about anything; spoons, dead bait, and live bait. False albacore are in the mix as well. Flounder are biting on the nearshore AR’S.
OFFSHORE: More kings and albacore.
GULF STREAM: Wahoo are plentiful with some blackfin mixed in the bite.
CAPE FEAR RIVER: Trout and reds are biting very well and the Virginia mullet are crushing fresh shrimp as well.
UPCOMING: Without any severe cold, expect the fall season to continue right into the next month and maybe longer.
Until Next Time…LET’S GO FISHING!!!
