Curious as to the general location on the river (lower, middle, upper) and what bait/lure? I gave up a topwater plug to a red on the middle river last Saturday morning. Best I can tell he cut the leader on some oyster rock or something. Anyway I was surprised to find him after all the rain.

Had a neighbor catch one just like Doug's on Friday as well. I guess the close to the season has helped?

Nice fish!

He's referring to the closing of the commercial red drum season that happened a while back due to over harvesting. It will remain closed until September. Now let's get off the subject and back to the fishing report. Great job.

No worries, just didn't want to see the thread get jacked. Too pretty of a fish for that to happen. The white oak is an area I haven't fished very much.

Oyster beds off the amphitheater mid river. I got a nice 17" flounder as well, but I did not get a photo of it. It was nice and fat.
Saturday, got one red about 18" and that was it.

Nice fish for sure!
From my experience White Oak has been on fire, or the dead sea. Never seem to have an in-between day down there. Sure is purty though, and a lot of different water in just a few miles.

I drive by white oak all the time and have never fished it, if I was going to fish it I would probably try the branch creeks near swansboro.

Not sure, if that is a creek or if he means the creeks that branch off the river. We are still exploring those, as we have only been fishing the area for a couple of years

You know, where the white oak river branches out into smaller bodies of water that sometimes have no friggen name, well i call them branch creeks. Looks like a tree branch on a map...you know.

There's some really shallow water back in there, but there's plenty of bait and I've seen more than one keeper flounder caught from a spot that shows up in that pic
