Not so good fishing:

From the boating side of fishing first for those fishing in the sound and inlet. Some of the biggest spot we can recall in recent history are being caught right in Teach's hole. We've started writing up citations for those angler's who are catching them up to 1 lb. or better. Our new derby leader is Stephen Johnson from Hillsborough, NC with a 1 lb. 1 oz. one beating out his father, Gary by 1 oz.

Also by boat are some citation sized red drum being caught and released...(pictures coming soon). Among the lucky angler's was Tyler Lambeth from Winston-Salem, NC, Bebe Hill from Snow Hill, Tim Cooke from Winston-Salem and Ken Lambeth from Winston-Salem. Also caught in the sound is flounder, speckled & gray trout and croakers.
The surf fishing also produced a few citation red drum yesterday evening and nighttime. Jim Tripp from Lumberton, NC caught and released a 41" red drum and a 31" red drum. Bluefish are scattered pretty much everywhere, flounder, spot, croaker and sea mullet round out the catch.
Hope to have more reports soon. Have a great day and keep fishing!
