Over the past week we have been in constant battle with the weather but the fish are here and they are hungry. The few days the wind let us get offshore we are still getting the wahoo’s. On our nearshore trips the big Spanish Mackerel have showed up with best results being live bait. Of course the sharks are still around and still showing us lots of fun. Backwater fishing is still Red Drum with a Flounder in the mix. Fall is here lets go fishing.
After the busy Holiday weekend I tried to lay low and collect my thoughts again. We have had wind, rain for a few days but when the weather is nice we did take advantage of the great fishing. Big African Pompanos on the offshore stucture along with a few Grouper and lots of Amberjack. In the Gulfstream the Wahoo bite has been great with the boats full limit the norm. The Red Drum are still bunching up getting ready to do their fall bite so if you have not booked your trips yet now is the time.
Not much has changed in the last week except the number of boats on the water this past weekend. With all the boats it made it tough to find spots that have not already seen tons of lead weights but we gave it a try anyway. The Red Drum action is picking up in the ocean and the flounder are making a comeback. Fall is around the corning and that means we are changing things up to target King Mackerel and Big Red Drum. If you want to see what our fall fishing is all about with Oak Island Fishing Charters give us a call we will show you a good time.
