We have had a couple of good fishing weeks in a row now. Everything is really starting to line up in order for us local angler’s to have an exceptional fall season. There is a ton of bait around which is all starting to flow out toward the ocean. The day time temperature is not as high which not only makes being on the water more comfortable but is also cooling the water down slowly but surely. And now that the fall has come upon us, the big fish are starting to show. A very good friend of mine, Devin Anderson, caught his first 10 plus pound flounder this past week. There was a tournament that day which also yielded another flatfish over 12.5 pounds and another angler weighed in one right at 10 pounds on the same day. This is a very exceptional occurrence for there to be three fish of this caliber caught on the same day, in the same area. My buddy, Devin, was fishing with Kyle Jefferys and Chase Leblanc. They put together a whopping 15.78 pound two fish aggregate to take home the top spot in this year’s Carolina Beach Inshore Challenge. Great job guys! There has been a few king mackerel starting to show on the beach front. There hasn’t been many caught right off out beach but just to the north of us has been pretty good. They will soon show up here as well. Down in the mouth of the river and just off the beach at oak island the large bull redfish are starting to bite really well. Anglers are finding multiple a trip and it will only get better as the water continues to cool. Hopefully these storms will not effect our area too badly and give the fishing a chance to really get good. Keep your fingers crossed for better weather and if you have a chance get out there and wet a line.

These are the kind of Bull Redfish that our local water's can produce this time of year on into the late fall.
