The inshore and backwater fishing has been fair on most days, good on some, and tough on a few, but we have managed to catch a few fish everyday. Redfish and flounder have been ther main course, with a few speckled trout, sheephead, bluefish, ladyfish, and jack crevalles. This pattern will more than likely continue thru August and then the fall fishing is not far behind. Can’t wait!!
The redfish are schooled up on the flats and the sightfishing has been good when the winds are light. On the windier days we have been catching reds, trout, and flounder in the the protected creeks behind Bald Head Island. In these creeks we can anchor down and throw live mullet or mud minnows on carolina rigs or drop the trolling motor, cover ground and cast soft plastics or topwater plugs. Either as been equally effective depending on what the anglers want to do. We are also picking up reds and flounder fishing marsh points in the bays of the lower Cape Fear area.
Thanks for reading the short report and hopefully I’ll have a good one the next time around. Check out the photos from a few of my recent trips.
This is one of the better days recently on 7/13/12 with around 25 flounder, 15 of which were keepers and seven redfish between 24 and 27 inches. All caught on Berkely Powerbait Jerk Shads
