Areas around Little Oak Island and Deepwater Bay have been good this week. Water temperature dropped a little bit but still a warm 61-63 degrees. Red, orange and gold jigs tipped with a minnow or worm is working well. Best depth has been 28’-32’ and 22’-24’ on the reefs, points and in gaps.
Crappie fishing has been decent. Larger crappies are being found this week. Areas around structure in 27’-32’ has been good using 1/4 to 3/8 oz. jigs tipped with a minnow.
Trolling and casting using shiny crankbaits baits are luring these aggressive fish in. Before leaving a bay try casting shallow and deep waters, you just never know where they may be lurking.
We are deep into fall but ice fishing will soon be here! Only 74 days away!
