Capt. Dean Lamont ( Fall fishing is right around the corner. Dean is booking false albacore trips for October and November. Best fishing is usually between Oct. 15th and Nov. 15th. Some of the best days are still available. Trout fishing is always available plus excellent bottom fishing. Check out Capt. Dean out this fall.

Although I use the first mullet blow as the unofficial start of the fall fishing season, this week it feels like the chilling weather is making its statement about the start of fall too and the fish are responding in kind. First of all, fall isn’t fall until the speckled trout bite is on, and it’s firing up as we speak. Specks are in Core Creek, the Haystacks and to the west, nice two to four-pounders are being landed in the Emerald Isle and Swansboro marshes and inside Bogue and Brown’s inlets. They are also showing along the surf east of Bogue Pier, east of Oceanana Pier and yes at the Ft. Macon Rock Jetty, the Radio Island fuel docks and rock jetty. The specks are eating live shrimp, MirrOlures and soft plastics. The better than usual summer bite seems to be giving us another good fall trout season, and there are already reports of specks and some drum at the Cape Lookout rock jetty. It doesn’t get any better than that!

Specks on the beach yet? Any spots in the ICW yet? Where were the late season cobia caught? Has the flounder bite on the beach picked up yet?  Wahoo are still hot, but what’s the key water temp and where are they? Need an update on Bogue Banks or Topsail piers? I got it! On Wednesday I surf fished from one end of Bogue Banks to the other, what did I see? Where are the stop-nets? Gill nets? Any false albacore around? What did I catch at the Iron Steamer in PKS? One fishing pier is being extended another under construction, but where are they? Bogue Inlet boat channel has been reorganized, so what did they do? For this and much more, you can subscribe to the full “Totally Bogus Fishing Report” for less than 7-cents/day, still only $25/year. It’s getting close to summer fishing season, so there’s no reason for YOU to miss out! Just send a check for $25 and your e-mail address to:
