Sluggish backwater bite

-A A +A
By Capt. Jacob Frick

The backwaters surrounding the Ocean Isle Beach area have not been producing the kind of action expected for this time of year.
The flounder bite has been on and off with only a few good fish biting a hook. Red drum and black drum have gotten picky in their feeding habits. Trout seem to be spread all over the place, making them hard to target. I can only speculate that the back-and-forth weather patterns have continued to play a role in making our resident fish sluggish and slowing down the flow of migrating fishing into our waters.
