    Cobia fishing has been great this September. We're catching them sight casting and bottom fishing. Trout and red drum have been very good since the water has cooled down, and the artificial bite has really picked up using zman 3 inch paddle tails in pinfish color. Trout and red drum will continue to get better as water cools down for october. This picture is Amanda VanDyke with a nice one!

    Been a bit since last report, ran a few offshore trips before I left for Ohio. Had Wounded Warrior Project bring 10 vets down and ran them on 3 boats. Great day, lots of enjoyment but the troll bite was slow, we had a blast swimming and horse assin around at the end of the day. Next day ran offshore, trolled up 37 small blackfin, landed 2 out of 3 wahoo as well. Also had a trip we did some sea bass and amberjack fishing, it's all a blur so not sure what day was what, but it's been fun!!! The drum fishing has been great at night as well and that should stay solid through Sept into Oct.

    Fly fishing has been awesome with the weather we have been gifted. Sight casting schools is always a classic for my charters. Shark fishing has been a blast on light tackle, sight fishing them also! Lady fish, and Spanish on fly rod also! Albies are also starting to show up!

Fishing report from Jamie R. in Trails End Road, Wilmington, N, North Carolina. Book a trip with Captain Jamie here.

    Great fishing for flounder, Red drum, Spanish mackerel, false albies (fly fish opportunities) and more..this is the beginning of great fall fishing. A wind of change is blowing in and all are excited for great fall fishing. Flounder fishing is great and anglers are able to keep some now through the end of September.

Trout fishing here should be as good as it gets towards October and November.
