Old Mossy Horns
Nice day of fishing. Plenty of drum and trout.
Thanks. Yea the wind had me cancel a couple trips this year with my boat size.^^We fished a couple day ago. Bite was just ok but not great on my end. It's been more of a early morning/late afternoon bite with the water temps. Getting a limit of specks hasn't required to much effort, but we have not fished as hard as we normally do because of the dang wind. Plenty of slot size drum around too.
Looks like yall were dodging squalls all day.My Son and I went out in that blow yesterday and managed to catch our limit in Trout and caught a few slot and under slot reds. Had to grind to find bites. Never really got "into" them at any spot. One positive was our class of fish was 18-22". We kept enough to eat and released the rest including the 22". Not bad considering the conditions. We got a late start, so I'm guessing we missed the morning bite. Either way, any day is a good day when I can spend it with my Son.

By the time they got to our end of the sound, they had 55-60 mph winds in em from 3-6 pm. Crap was rough and bad looking behind the house yesterday.
It always amazes me how the same spot can have different fish the next day, even on the same tide with the same tactics.We did well on our day and a half trip to the coast. One morning got into the reds (all slot except 3 over) with a couple trout. Then afternoon was a bust with one red. Next morning same area was mostly all trout with a couple reds mixed in. Caught one spanish to which was new inshore there for me. Flounder we could have had a 10 man limit both days. Was a big let down with such a short season coming up but hoping to make it down again during that time.
Heck yeah niceYesterday’s fishing tried my patience catching a few here and there….very scattered bites. We barely caught enough to keep focused.
Today made up for yesterday with decent midday topwater fishing. Bite didn’t last too long, but it was good while it lasted.

That’s my neck of the woods. Pops and me fished Friday and Saturday in almost impossible conditions. We didn’t catch but 25 or so between the two days but they were all quality fish.
Happened on my end too. Need a few days for the water to clear up and the water temp to stabilize. Our water temp dropped over 10° in a couple days.yesterday was tough. found lots of menhaden in a couple creeks but nothing feeding. rode all over the lower neuse. only caught 2 keepers b/w 18 and 20" and a bunch of rat reds
