OI Reports Anyone?

Postby BionicSenior » Sat Oct 15, 2011 9:09 am

Anyone fished OI lately? I might be down in a week and was wondering what conditions were like other than rain and wind. :roll:

Blues, blues and more blues - all of them I have seen were 10-12 inches at best. Last week at the inlet fished over near Green Island - blues - shoals on the south jetty - blues, went into the old pond - blues. Etta James would be proud.

Thanks Biff. That'l work. I'll be wading and will try the south side of the bridge with my 6 wt. Happy with the blues if I can get 'em. (Also like Etta!)

Senior, Bradley (BCflyfisher) and I were on the OBX last week columbus day, since we got blown out at HI we traveled to the northern beaches to visit his grandparents who were staying there. On Monday we fished and blues were there on the pier (jeanettes) we probably could have gotten them in the surf too but we needed pullage after our weather dissapointment.
we also went to the little bridge and flyfished from the sides of the bank. and BC got his first SPECK on fly.
we saw another fellow fishing gotchas and he was pulling out specks too.
wish could give you more of a report but that was a real blow week.

Lwflyrod, where is the little bridge up north ? We stay In Corolla.

I was at HI right after you and in two days I made maybe 10 casts total. And we were blind casting, never saw a fish. You definitely did better than we did.

bionic senior,

it is the first bridge that you come to after you pass Tale of the Whale and Basnights as you're heading towards Manteo

Any word on fishing the new (or reclaimed) cut under the OI bridge?

Is the turn down the beach accessible from the access point by the marina? It was a tight squeeze even at low tide last I was there. Not sure if the structure change has cut off the south portion of the beach altogether.

Used to do pretty well down there 10-15 years ago or so. Caught a few nice stripers directly under the bridge before it all filled in.
