The wind has been blowing fairly steady and the swells have been rolling in, however the fall bite is in full swing.

Wayne at Seaview pier reports the Spot bite has been good as well as seeing some nice black drum and a few sea mullets come over the rail.

At Surf City Pier Vinita reports that while the king bite has slowed down the spot bite is stronger than ever. She hasn’t seen any of the yellow bellied spots but anglers are catching them “two at a time” on both sides of the pier! She says they are seeing some nice schools of Spanish but they are a little fickled when it comes to the bite.

The king bite has been hot says Robin at Jolly Roger pier. He also reports a “wide open” spot bite and feels this is one of the best fall fishing seasons he has seen in a long time. Nice size black drum in the 4 to 5 pound range are being caught as well as some flounder.

In the sound and waterway some nice drum are being caught near the inlet and along docks behind the island. The speckled sea trout bite is picking up with the New River area producing the best results right now. Again some flounder are being caught but many of them are undersize.

Tight Lines to all!

I'll second that on New River having a nice bite right now. I've primarily been having the most luck with Red Drum though. I've been playing around in the evenings afterwork ivo the mouth of Wallace Creek area and have had some terrific luck with Red Drum. Just as the sun sets I have had the most luck. The biggest I have caught in the last week was a 26 inch Red Drum in that area off of a live shrimp hooked through the tail up into the body. Most of my luck has been just casting up close to the bank where the water is real shallow (1/2 to 2 foot) and then slowly reeling or jigging it in.
