We have had a weather front moving through the past few days making the walleye bite a little challenging, but we anticipate it to straighten out within the next few days. Yesterday morning’s bite was better with the cloud cover overhead compared to the afternoon when the sun came out. 23-27’ of water on the reefs using a 3/8 oz. gold, pink or orange jig tipped with a minnow has been working best.

Guides are reporting the perch and crappie bite has been good and getting better and better as we have been moving into fall. Nice crappies have been found vertically jigging in  35’-45’ feet of water using 3/8 oz. or lighter jigs tipped with minnow. Jumbo perch have been located in shallow spots to bays and inlets. The most effective technique is the same as crappie and walleye this time of year, a jig and a minnow.

Muskie bite is strong
Shallow crank baits and Danny baits have been Hot! Hot! Hot! in bays near Oak Island.
