Cape Fear Guide Fishing !Ronald,John,Pee WeePee Wee catches red drum

NC fall fishing is back even though the heavy rains from the past week had flooded the back waters of the Cape Fear River,causing extremely high tides,and pushing all  of the bait out of the back bays.Ronald Bowes from Caswell county,North Carolina gave Capt.Mike a tip that the finger mullet were thick at Carolina Beach Inlet the afternoon before.October 9Th leaving the slip at 06:45 am Capt.Mike,Ronald,John,and Pee Wee headed toward Carolina Beach Inlet in search of finger mullet,sure enough they were at  a spot directly across from inlet.Capt.Mike put John on wheel,got on the bow with the cast net,with in just a few minutes had enough bait for the day.The ride south on the Cape Fear River to Buzzard Bay was just a little cool first thing in the morning,but the river was like glass making for a smooth ride on the pathfinder bay boat.Fishing started a out a little slow that morning with the first two of three stops,not producing any action.This is when experience and local knowledge of the waters makes all the difference in a successful day of fishing,or going home with a empty cooler. I knew my normal fishing spots were not producing,so I changed to my spots,with no current at all,sure enough we started to catch fish.
