I’m very happy that fall is really starting show here in eastern North Carolina. This is by far my favorite time of the year for outdoors and fishing in North Carolina. As the air temps Fall the fishing action just heats up more and more every day!

We’ve done a lot of Flounder fishing the last couple of weeks, with some pretty good days of fishing. Most of the Flounder are eating Mullet and Mud minnows on light Carolina rigs. The Flounder are mixed in size to just under keeper size to a few over five pounds. If you would rather use artificial bait, I would try a Saltwater Assassin Blurp grub in molting color. Rig the Blurp on a red or black jig head for best results.

We have found most of the Flounder in the creeks in mixed size but higher numbers. Fishing the drop of the main channel in the creeks, this is where we have found the most fish. The bigger Flounder seem to be around the inlets and just off the beach. There seems to be less action and Flounder but, they are very nice Flounder; in the three the over six pound range. (The creeks have been more fun for Flounder fishing.)

There are still fair amounts of good ole’ Redfish around, some in the creeks and some in the ocean. In the creeks and waterway top water plugs and live baits are doing the trick. We fish top water early in the morning and late afternoon when the sun in low. The ocean Redfish is eating; live bait and Blurp shrimp and or shad grubs. Extra scent never hurts when Red fishing!

The Trout are starting to show up around the area. We’ve caught Trout from right around Wrightsville Beach to down in the Cape Fear River. 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, Pump Seed/Chart tail and sliver mullet on red jig heads. Hard baits getting the luck are Mirrolures redhead silver body and white back white belly.

As water temps drop the Trout fishing will get better and better. The last couple of seasons have been the best Trout fishing I have ever seen around Wrightsville Beach, it seems to get better every year! I do a great deal of Trout charters in November, if you would like to go book soon for I will book up fast!

In other fishing news: I’m proud to announce that myself and Capt. Jeremiah Hieronymus, took second place and First place TWT “largest Redfish” in the Redfish Action Inshore Classic this last weekend. We had a great time fishing this well run event and look very forward to fishing more in the feature! Capt. Lee Willis and the Redfish action crew did a wonderful job running this tournament, my hat comes off to Him and his crew! I will always recommend this series to anyone how enjoys Red fishing and tournaments.

The Fishing gear we use:

Reds, Trout and Flounder: Reels Pflueger Medalist spinning in sizes 6035 and 6040. Rods: Ugly stick lites 6’6” and 7’ Med & Med-Heavy. 20 pound Ugly Braid.

In the Redfish Action tournament I could not have done it with out my: Pflueger Supreme low profile bait caster and All Star Platinum P845MC 7’ rod. This combo gave me extreme casting distance that truly helped us place in this tournament. Check one of those out, you won’t be unhappy!

Good Luck,

Captain Jot Owens
