Fall Fishing is in Full Swing

daves-flounder-oct-17-2009.jpgHi Folks, We are in full swing with fall fishing. The trout bite has been on fire, the flounder are BIG and the reds are sporadic. When the fish adjust to our first really cool snap, fishing should explode. Now here’s my report:

Inshore: Trout fishing is fantastic. While fishing with Wayne and Dave during the Cape Fear Red-Trout Tournament we caught 13 trout and had a nice surprise of a 5.25 pound flounder…all on artificials. We were pretty high on the leader board but for several reasons, including the weather, we did not fish the second day of the tourney. Reds are biting, but you have to hunt for them. The big flounder are definitely biting.

Near Shore: Just before this cool snap, the big spanish were providing hot action with a lot of nice blues mixed in with them. Look for the spanish to boogie on south as the water temps go down. The gray trout bite and bluefish along with some bonito and false albacore should keep you busy just off the beach.

Offshore: I have heard many reports of kings from 10-25 miles out. Remember as long as the water is 68, there is a good chance kings will be around.

Gulfstream: Persistent NE winds have prevented the usually fall trips. It is time for a big wahoo bite as well as tuna.
