11-8 Carolina Explorer Report:) Fall fishing is great, we are catching REDFISH, TROUT, AND FLOUNDER..

November 8th, 2011 by Capt. Robert Schoonmaker | Comments Off

Hello to all, Thanks for reading the report.  We are catching fish and having great days on the water.  Inshore the Red fish, flounder and a few trout have been cooperating on a daily basis.  We have had some strong winds, but remember it is always calm in the back waters and sounds.  We have been catching the red fish and flounder on 3inch gulp shrimp, strike king minnows, D.O.A minnows and Finesse jerkbaits on jig heads. The trout are biting DOA shrimp, Billy Bay Shrimp, strike king minnows, and various mirro-lures. Spray some fish juice on the lure and cast.  Mud minnows, mullet, shrimp, and live shrimp have been working as well.  The wind has kept us off the ocean over the past few weeks.  We have been fishing the calm waters and enjoying some great inshore fishing.  Now is a great time to book your Fall or Winter fishing trip.  I have some great Winter Rates and affordable oceanfront lodging if you want a package deal. Call 910-264-1807 and book your trip today!!!!!

Tom with a nice peice of crabtrap that fought like a flounder. 


Tom and Bonnie with a nice double on red fish. Toms was over the slot at 30 inches.

Rex and Riley with a nice redfish that Riley hooked.  She and Rex reeled this big one in together.

Riley and Daniel with a double on Red fish.  I held the pole and Riley cranked it to the boat.  She insisted on holding both fish.  Fisher women in the making. She also wanted everyone to know that hers was bigger than her moms.

Riley with a Riley sized redfish.  She caught this on all by herself.. Way to go…

Matt, Chris, and Andy with a nice catch of flounder and red fish.  Some caught on lure and some on bait.

This pic is cool because Chris caught this flounder on a bare hook.  He is holding the minnow that fell off during his cast.  He casted saw the minnow fall, reeled in the line, felt a bite, and caught this small flounder that we released.
