Well folks, fall is really showing itís self around southeast North Carolina. With that said fall fishing is picking up too! The mullet run is in full force and the fish know it and are reacting to it. Redfish, Flounder and even a few early speckled trout are chasing the mullet around.

The Redfish have started to show up in and around the local inlets. We are catching Reds in the 24 to over 32 inch range, some days their over the slot some days their in the slot. Most of the Reds around the inlets are hitting mullets on Carolina rigs; using heavier egg sinkers. On some days we have had some luck on Saltwater Assassin Blurp grubs in colors molting and pearl.

When we have been Red fishing around the inlets we are picking up some nice Flounder as well. The Flounder are in the size range of 2 to some over 5 pounds; a right nice bonus to the day of fishing. There again the Flounder are hitting mullets on Carolina rigs and scented grubs. One fish last week went six pounds, one happy little boy that caught that one! We also have gotten some Flounder in the creeks around Wrightsville as well.

There has been a few Trout starting to show up around. Most that we have found are in the creeks and channels running along the drop offs to deeper water. The trout that we have caught are hitting grubs in colors Chart. Diamond and sliver mullet and red jig heads. Hard baits getting the luck are Mirrolures redhead silver body and green back white belly. It wonít be long before the trout will move in around southeast NC, I canít wait!

The Sheephead are still going strong and should to the end of October. The best fishing lately for the Sheephead 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. Check out the October NC sportsman; I have a very good article on Sheephead fishing in the magazine

I have recently tried a new product from Bang scent Inc. Itís called ďTexas TeaĒ and is a spray scent for soft and hard baits. It is a mixture of a few different fish and shrimp oils, great for Redfish and Flounder fishing. Give it a try, so far so good for my fishing trips.

Thanks for reading this report, if you would like to go on a guided trip give me a call 910-233-4139.

Fishing gear we use:

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

Good Luck,

Captain Jot Owens
