The late fall/early winter fishing is really starting to heat up. There are not a lot of options out there but the one’s that you have are promising. That is unless you deicide to chase after the elusive giant bluefin tuna. They are here and being caught nearly everyday. The only problem is that 30-50 boats are after them daily and only 3-5 bites to be had a day. If you get a chance at one, you are in for a treat and possibly the catch of a lifetime. All of these fish are being caught just up the beach around Morehead City. These fishing are moving down the beach so when out off our beach’s keep an eye out for them because they have to come right by us on their way south. The inshore fishing is what’s providing the most action in our area. The speckled trout, stripers, and redfish are biting better and better everyday as the water cools. The stripers are proving that conservation can really work. Every year for the past several the striper fishing has done nothing but improve. The fish are even working their way further down river every year. All of these fish can be caught with both live or artificial baits. They can also be caught in the same area’s, so when you go it is very possible to pull off a winter fishing grand slam. (Catching a striper, redfish, and speck all in the same day) I’m not even sure that this term has been labeled this yet, but it sounds pretty cool! Good luck out there this upcoming week and make the most of the warm days that are still around.
