I hope everybody made through Hanna ok. Iím very glad it was not a major storm, and it looks likes Ike is going to the Gulf. Good for us in the Carolina; not so good for the Gulf. Our hopes and preys are with the Gulf States. Fishing was good until we stopped for the passing of Hanna. Iím sure it will pick right back up too!

The Spanish mackerel have still been biting good to great on most days, with some small keeper kings as well. Most of the Spanish are biting Clark spoons trolled behind #1 plannerís. The Clark spoons that are working the best for us are sizes; 00 and 0 in plan silver and pink flash. When the Spanish are on top feeding and jumping, Maria jig spoons have been the trick. The colors that seem to be working are pink, green and blue in sizes seven & fourteen gram. The Spanish are eating very small bait fish, with this happening I have gone to smaller lures. This has helped greatly in the good numbers of Spanish we have caught.

The King mackerel have also showed up this last week, they are not real big but a lot of fun on light tackle! The kings are also biting the Yo-Zuriís. The colors that are working the best have been Pink and Clown. We are trolling the crystal minnows two to three knots. The good thing about trolling this Yo-Zuri is you can use light tackle which makes it a lot of fun.

Sheephead are still biting good, we have caught some real nice Sheephead this year. Weíve had two fish over ten pounds, so much fun on light tackle. They are so good to eat as well! The best fishing lately for us has been around bridges, docks and bulk-heads. Fishing in water from six to fifth-teen feet for Sheephead seems to work the best for us. We fish mostly using small Carolina rigs, with forty pound mono leader and small but strong live bait hooks. Baits we are using; fiddler crabs and sand fleas have worked just fine. Give it a shot, it takes time but youíll get one; Hold-onĒ!

The fishing should get better as the water clears up from Hannaís hit and run. Get out there and do some fishing, fall fishing should be just around the corner. Thanks for reading this report, and good luck fishing. If you would like to go fishing give me call!

Fishing Gear we use:

Sheephead, King and Spanish mackerel: Reels Pflueger Medalist spinning in sizes 6035 and 6040. Rods: Ugly stick lites 6í6Ē and 7í Med & Med-Heavy
