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.

Fall arrived on Sunday with heavy rain, winds and a strong cold front…perfect. Fishing is showing some signs of fall revival with bait in the water and water temperatures now sinking back into the 70s, a real sign of fall. A plethora of pompano showed at Bogue Pier over the weekend a usual early fall visitor. With the pier crowded shoulder to shoulder and the pompano’s survival approach being swimming parallel to the pier, tangled lines were almost as abundant as the pompano. There were also plenty of sea mullet in the mix too. Ditto for the surf with sea mullet, some over two-pounds, and pompano being landed on sand fleas and FishBites baits and shrimp. So how about the spots? There are some showing to the north of us, some on Topsail Island and a few in our local waters as well, particularly in the Beaufort area.  I know that they are around, since they are showing up in the local restaurants as well.

BIPTrout_sSo where did I catch that 20-inch speckled trout? Any spots yet? What about Old Drum fishing in the Neuse, what artificials work? Flies? Pompano? SO where are they and how big are they? 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? What piers had a good, no great week with big kings? Any false albacore around? One fishing pier is being extended another under construction, but where are they?

    I have a renter who wants a guide to fish the sound and maybe mouth of creeks, in other words, anything but the ocean. He will be arriving at my house on Friday, Oct 3 & leaves on Oct. 7.

    Any recommendations?

    I would appreciate it. Thanks so much.
