I haven't been to Ocracoke in years, but, we always had some great luck at Wallace's Channel, close to Portsmouth Island, fishing for grey trout. I'm sure someone here can get you headed in the right direction.

I've fished Wallace Channel. What kind of rigs/bait did you use to catch the trout and what timeof the year was it?

C.J..........It was the month of June most of the time. When I said "Years" I meant "YEARS" LOL Like 15-20. We mostly used heavy Diamong Jig type lures (To get to the bottom quick) with a couple of smaller Umbrella type jigs tied above. Pick it up and let it settle back to the bottom. Like I said, haven't fished that place in years, and I'm sure someone else can probably help you with some of the more modern baits, that are on the market today.

Carolina rigs and finger mullets drifted thru the inlet works great on flounders. Just be be prepared for the occasional skate! :eek: Work the 8 to 14 foot edges of the channels. Find a finger bay and cast some topwaters for red or pitch your live bait rig up there and see what's in there. Don't be afraid to just explore and play around. I've been rewarded a few times doing that. Ya just never know.

For artifical, 1/8 to 1/4" jigs with a skirted twin tail grub in clear with red specks under a clear float worked over weedbeds has worked good for me, to get trout. A lotta guys like the "Gulp" shrimp or grubs on their Carolina rigs for flounders too.

Hope that helps get you started , good luck
