The fishing is still a little up and down but it is getting much better. This past week the Flounder have become much more consistent, producing about 4 or 5 per trip.

Early in the week Melissa Pahel and Kevin Kindred went out fishing and picked up nice Redfish, Speckled Trout, and Flounder… A “Cape Fear Slam”

On Tuesday the Organ family Naperville, Ill. went out and caught 5 flounder and 2 redfish.

On Wednesday Bob Brunett took out his son Ryan and they got into the flounder and redfish but left them all in the creek as they had to go back to Pennsylvania.

Once Ryan Burnette put on his lucky hat he became Ryan “Flounder Pounder” Burnette, catching 4 flounder by himself!!! 

Thursday we started the day in the ocean and picked up 14 Spanish Mackerel then to the Creeks in the afternoon where although the fishing was a little slow the fish we did catch were exceptional!

Raby Meng, a fly fisherman from Pittsburg, just picked up his first Redfish…25″ with spinning tackle. No more fly fishing for Raby. 

On his last cast of the day, Dr. Padiwath Ung of Pinehurst, NC landed this 20″ Flounder. there is no question what he had for dinner…. 

There are more schools of bait fish showing up every day which brings in the fish we are looking for.

Lets Go Fishing….
