NC Summer Flounder

Sunday, June 27th, 2010

Another flounder for the pan !Flounder first bite
NC summer flounder fishing can be quite productive,in the smaller creeks just off the Cape Fear River,my favorite bait is the menhaden on a fish finder rigs with a circle hook.
Anchoring up to a grass line bank with a scattered oyster shell bottom will hold flounders,all you have to do is just be a little patient. Fishing with live menhaden requires you give the flounder time to eat the bait, after the initial hit on the bait,wait let the fish do the pulling and the circle hook will set itself.
Summer flounder – Paralichtys dentalus are flat.disc-shaped fish white on one side brown,gray or dark olive color on the other side fish will have spots through out the body.

Speckle Trout Biting

Another Speckle TroutCurtis catches speckle trout
Speckle trout in June,oh yea it’s hot but you just can’t be the Cape Fear Region for inshore fishing in North Carolina,creeks off the Cape Fear River are producing some speckle trout in the 3lb. range.
Tip of the day,carry plenty of water,drink often,book a inshore charter with the Cape Fear Guide and see what all the talk is about !
Speckle Trout – Cynoscion nebulosus  has a long slender body with a dark bluish-silvery-gray back an silvery sides.Look for round black spots on the back,upper sides,the upper jaw has two large canine like teeth.
Speckle trout have a tender mouth,which will tear from trying to put to much force bringing the fish to the boat,play these fish with a light drag,and you will land more fish!
