OFFICIAL RESULTS:
 
2nd Annual Flounder Challenge!!!
 


1st Place - Chris Batsavage 6.05lbs!!!!
 
 
WINNINGS $345 & Penn Tackle Bag

 
One of the best finishes to one of our events so far!!! Saturday, the last day to fish in the Flounder Challenge (...that began on May 1) Chris Batsavage brought in a 6.05lbs fish to be weighed around mid-day.

He told us that he wasn’t even thinking about trying to catch a flounder on the last day. His son was begging to go fishing and Chris wasn’t to wild about it since it was a Holiday weekend with tons of people out on the water fishing and boating. Well, he said he finally gave in and took his little guy fishing and it wasn’t long after that he hooked the winning fish on a Live Minnow that took the 1st Place spot.

What a great way to end the event as Chris got to make some great memories with his son that he won’t forget. 

 

2nd Place: Jesse Ham 5.97lbs / WINNINGS $172.50 & SPINNING REEL 

 

3rd Place : John Gann 5.17lbs / WINNIGS $57.50 & SPINNING REEL

WE WANT TO THANK ALL ANGLERS THAT SUPPORTED THE EVENT THIS YEAR AND HOPE TO SEE YOU ALL NEXT YEAR!!!

 

 

We have another blast of "FALL" on the way for this weekend. The forecast as of right now, we could see some temperatures in the 60’s at night. So, we should see some fish fire up this weekend. Over the holiday weekend there was some great fishing from the backwaters out to the blue water and it should just get better and better.

 

Inshore / Nearshore:

 

The Spanish fishing was great last weekend and into this week so far. There's been some very nice fish brought in to be weighed. Even with all the boat traffic we had over the weekend AR 315 was pretty hot with bigger Spanish being caught on Live Bait. The anglers trolling Clarkspoons, Mackerel Trees, Squid Rigs on planers and weights were having good luck fishing just off the Oceanana Pier. Also, some good numbers were caught up around Cape Lookout but on some days they've been a little hard to locate.


This coming weekend the Spanish should really pull into the inlet and close to the beach when the NE winds start to blow. We should see our 2nd mullet blow and the Spanish will take advantage of it. The anglers casting are having better luck now on Jig fish Lures, Got-Cha Plugs, Kastmasters, Hopkins and Stingsilvers. This time of the year the Spanish will get in big schools around the inlet so take advantage of their feeding frenzy. The best way to find them is look for the birds feeding along the surface. If the birds are going crazy that's a good sign of feeding Spanish. You're also going to find some Blue Fish in the mix with the Spanish.


A few kings were in the Shipping Channel around the reefs during this week. The best action is going to be over on the east side to land the bigger fish. But don’t pass up the inlet area because this time of year there's always some 40 plus fish caught in the inlet. Live Bait will work good but if you don’t won't to use live bait then you can use Dead Bait Rigs with Cigar Minnows and have good luck.

The Flounder bite has been real good since last week. The reefs and inside are both producing some good quality fish. We weighed in 3 fish that went over 5lbs last weekend. Most of the bigger fish are coming from around the port area, bridges and rocks. Anglers are fishing with Live Minnows around some kind of structure. The numbers seem to be coming from the artificial reefs using Spro Bucktails and Betts Flounder Bucktails these go to lures are working the best. The key is to tip it with 4” Berkley Gulp Shrimp. Remember also, they could be lying around on rocks and be piled upped just waiting for bait. You don’t always have to be right on the reef to catch them.

Old Drum fishing is still doing great with fish now being caught up toward the mouth of Adams Creek. I had a customer fish there the other afternoon and had great luck. South River and Point Marsh is also good areas to fish. Most of the best action has been after the sun goes down but you can catch them during the day too. I know anglers that are fishing during the day are catching lots of fish on bait and artificials. We should see a few more weeks of action but if we have too many hard NE blows they'll start to head back out. So, if you want to give it a try I'd be going in the next week or so to get in on the action.


The smaller drum bite has been decent on some days but not that good on others.  We've heard of up to 30 fish being caught then the next day 5 to 10 fish. Most all the action has been in the marsh areas working Redfish Magic’s, Topwaters, Gulp Baits and Popping Corks.

There are good numbers of Sea Mullet starting to move in the inlet toward the Turning Basin. The best catches I've heard of have been just outside the inlet in the Shipping Channel. The big numbers of the mullet haven't came through yet but it could be any day with some cool air on the way. There also has been some nice Gray Trout mixed in with the mullets along the bottom.


I'm starting to get some calls about Spots but I've not seen any good catches yet. They are some around but no big schools of them moving in yet. With the cold front on its way it should start to push them our way. Spec-Rigs tipped with fresh shrimp, bloodworms and fishbites are all great choices when looking for the bottom feeders.

The Sheepshead bite was very good this past weekend with some big fish being caught. We weighed one in that was just under 10lbs along with some others that were over 7lbs. Most of the big ones are coming from the Atlantic Beach Bridge. I also heard of several being caught along the Port Wall, they will start to school up making them easier to catch in numbers over the next few weeks. We still have Live Fiddler Crabs and Live Sea Urchins in-stock. We will keep them until the temperatures and the water gets to cold for us to keep them alive. We should have Sheepshead bait until mid October.

The Speckled Trout action is getting better and better. We weighed in a few fish last weekend, none real big but some good solid keeper fish. I've one customer catching his limit of trout early in the morning in the Haystacks right at sunrise. Also, reports are the trout are being caught in Core Creek and up in the ditches. North of us has had a great summer on trout in the sounds and as the water gets colder they'll move our way just like they did last year making it one of the best years we'd seen in awhile.

 

Piers / Surf:

 

Oceanana Pier reporting some great Spanish action over the last week. The best bite has been early in the morning and late afternoon but some anglers are catching them during the day. The lures to use are Got-Cha Plugs, Pole Kat and Kastmasters to have the best action. There will be some Bluefish in the mix to be caught while casting for the Spanish. For those bottom fishing Spot, Croakers, Sea Mullet and Black Drum will be in the mix. The Surf Zone is also producing a few Red Drum to be caught right along the wash.


Fort Macon Jetty also has been holding a few Red Drum and Black Drum. With the Northeast wind on its way this weekend the mullet should start to run and the drum should move in to feed on them. Sea Mullets have been working up and down the beach with a few spots mixed in. Anglers having good luck with the mullets are using Fresh Shrimp and Bloodworms fished on the bottom. There are plenty of small Founders along the beach, the majority haven't been keepers but they're catching a few to take home for dinner. Live Mud Minnows and Gulp Baits fished right in the wash will get you some action on the flat fish.

 

Offshore:

 

The bite this week has been great it looks like we have a good fall bite coming on. Last weekend we were weighing in lots of Wahoo and a few nice Dolphin. The Wahoo bite has been the best with fish ranging from 30lbs to 60lbs. Most of the action has been around the Big Rock and down south toward the Swansboro Hole. Blue Water Candy Wahoo Jags, Wahoo Sea Witch Rigs, Green Machines and Jag A Hoos have been working great.


Anglers have been buying Large Ballyhoo, as there are no Mediums around and having just as good luck on the large. I had a customer coming back with fish that were all caught on large baits. Also, that's what your bigger Hoo’s will be caught on.
I've also heard of a few Black Fin Tuna in the mix. 


The bottom guys are still having some luck but most of the action has been around the 14 Bouy out to the 90ft Drop for the Groupers. Sea Bass can be caught in areas like North West Places and Atlas Tanker. Also, there are good numbers of Silver Snappers being caught along the bottom.

 

See you this weekend.
