This summer has flown by so fast. It's been non stop for me with work, family and fishing. Looking back, we had a fantastic summer here in Eastern NC with some really good fishing.
The new East Cape Fury has been putting us in front of a lot of fish this summer.
Lowtide redfish have been plentiful and willing to take flies and artificials.
We've also had a great top water bite on high tide reds and speckled trout.
Tailing redfish in the grass has been very good this summer, with a few really outstanding days that come to mind. I was able to get some really good footage stalking reds in the grass this year. There's still nothing that compares to casting to these fish as they methodically work their way through the grass stalking crabs and shrimp.
This summer also provided some fantastic fishing along the beaches for Spanish Mackerel, Bluefish, Ladyfish and Jacks. We were also able to get our Project Healing Waters participants out a few times this summer to get in on the action.
With cooler weather and some North winds, one of my favorite fish has arrived back along the coast and it looks like we are in for a great fall season chasing these guys!
