June overall has yielded some excellent speckled trout fishing when conditions are good. Good conditions mean its calm enough to get to where the fish are and have the ability to get around to search for them. On rough days, we’ve been a little more limited and the fish just haven’t been everywhere and wherever we’ve been able to get out of the wind. On relatively calm days, we’ve caught lots of limits of speckled trout and a few keeper flounder to go with them.
Today was one of those banner days. It was slick calm, and we took advantage of the nice conditions. We caught over 100 trout. Our biggest one was 24.5″ and we threw back dozens of keepers. Lots of action catching them many different ways. We also hooked two big drum under a school of tarpon but ended up pulling both of them off. Oh well, that’s fishing, but it’s good to see some showing up early. We hope to be on them steady by the middle of July this year.
Just because I haven’t been posting regularly doesn’t mean I haven’t been on the water. I’ve been rolling pretty steady this June. I have one open day (Aug. 7) between now and the beginning of Oct. It’s not too early to begin planning your fall trip on the Pamlico. We should continue to have some excellent speckled trout fishing as well as some fun fall striper action.
Here are my open days in Oct: 2, 3, 7, 8, 14-17, 21-26, 28-31
If you can’t wait until then, I can get you out on the water with Capt. Scott, Kent, Joe, or Bryan. They all do a great job and are capable of putting you on fish and showing you the experience you deserve.
