I'm 20 miles south, down here the bite seemed to be back this past week-end - mainly at or near the inlets. However the creeks and channel water is clearing up and should be back to normal for this time of year soon.

Let us know how you make out!

Eric at New River Marine says they are biting in the river and intercoastal waterway at Sneads Ferry. They are also getting a few out of the surf. Finger mullet are what they are eating right now. You might have better luck at the inlet. That's where I would start if the tide is outgoing in the morning.

I just posted pictures of my Labor Day fishing trip to Beaufort. That flounder is the largest one I have ever caught. 22"... What do everyone else use for bait. I think I was just lucky this time. I was using minnows caught in Taylor's Creek. I am going this weekend, 9/30/05. Any suggestions on where they are biting the best.

No flounder bite to report around the Drum Inlets. Ophlelia made so many changes, I guess fish are just as confused as I am about where to go. The old inlet( original ) went from a few hundred feet wide to almost 1/2 mile wide. Also a new inlet opened on Davis Island. Getting plenty of ocean water into Core Sound right now across from Sea Level And Atlantic.

Slow process. Never seen so many live oak leaves-- Water still hasn't cleared up yet. It was shaping up to be a good flounder year for me before this storm. Best part of season is yet to come-- will have to wait and see.

I gigged 16 Tuesday night that went 43lbs. in Sneads Ferry. (someone else was with me, the 8 fish limit) The flounder are here, but I don't know how they are biting. Some nice specks are hiting hard though, if you know the holes. Good luck this weekend.
