By: Captain Matt Wirt of Reel Adventure Charters
Now is the time to come fishing! We have plenty of open days available through Thanksgiving. The fishing has been great!
ANNOUNCEMENT: Capt. Matt and Reel Adventure will be operating out of Pine Island Florida and the Everglades from November 29 to March 1. Please click here for more info: http://www.reel-adventure.com/PineIs...ngCharters.htm This is an awesome packaged deal including: free airport pick up at Ft. Myers, (airfare is cheap right now!) very cheap lodging, with free phone and internet, and AWESOME fishing! This is my 4th year going down there, and will be my second year guiding down there. The fishing is truly amazing; you will see every fish before you cast! We hope to share this awesome fishery with you! (Call soon to get the dates you want! The end of February is already getting full!) Now back to NC waters…
INSHORE: The water is cooling off and the redfish are moving onto the flats and further up the shallow creeks. The trout bite is picking up around points, oyster bars and creek mouth’s where a lot of current is present. The flounder bite is really good. Try deep holes or ledges and don’t forget the inlets and near shore reefs. This pattern should be the same through Thanksgiving. The top producing baits have been Gulp! Gulp! and more Gulp! The shrimp and 5 inch jerkbaits are my favorite, color seems to have no effect right now.
OFFSHORE: The wind has been brutal the last few days but before the wind the Amberjacks were doing well at the wrecks and reefs 10-20 miles out… use the biggest bait you can find and HOLD ON! The cudas are everywhere and are a blast on light tackle. Try big topwater baits for best results. The spanish bite has picked back up and the Albacore are also right off the beach. The bluefish are everywhere right now and we have had a lot of fun sight casting to them on light tackle. The wind is supposed to subside in the next day or two and we cant wait!
We hope to see some of you for the great fall fishing NC has to offer and don’t forget The Florida fishing this winter. Get away from the cold and have a blast! Just give us a call!
