I have come to terms that the flounder bite here in Wilmington NC is not very good until later in the summer/Fall months. I will be in NJ this week on a little vacation to AC etc. I can't wait to get back to all the great flounder fishing this time of year in GB. It's gonna be a blood bath

We're also going to be out in GB on Friday for some flounder. It was posted on Scott's Bait and Tackle that a guy caught a 13 lb 10 oz flounder in Grassy Channel on Sunday. They're supposed to post the picture today. All we want to do is catch some keepers. Give a yell and let us know how your doig-BetOne is the name of our boat and we pretty much stay on 9, never heard any chatter on 78.

I won't be out Friday but I will be out on Saturday for the JCAA Fluke Tournament. I will be somewhere between L.E. Reef and the stakes in the bay. :D

Someone give a "Barner call" on channel #9 Saturday...there is strength in numbers! That 13.10 fluke is impressive...I was just saying how it seemed odd that no one had caught or reported a big fluke from Great Bay as yet....usually a nice big one or two comes from the 126 area by now.

I don't have a name on my boat but I will answer to Bottom Bouncer, a$$hole, and many other names ;) I will monitor 9 on Fri and Sat. Sunday I think I am fishing the big pond with my cousin.

I have been fishing Great bay all my life and I still don't believe I know exactly where grassy channel is could someone help me out?

Grassy Channel in Great Bay
A quick map made from an excerpt from a Charterboat Charts #5. We carry the laminated charts in the store. Order Online
Scanned image is not as clear as actual chart.

Grassy basically runs parallel from 139 marker up past 129 to Little Beach.
There are some very shallow areas, as seen be the dead low tide depths marked on the chart.
Navigate with care! It is very easy to get beached on a bar.

Thanks I have looked at that but it is kinda hard for me to get a reference. Scotts is a great B & T! About how far off the ICW would you say it is 100, 200, 300 yards? Should I just putt around looking for the holes? How deep is the grassey channel area (IE what depths should I be looking for?)and where do you enter it near 139 or up by 129 or anywhere in between?

Thanks for your reply.

I had a suface temp of 78 degrees yesterday. A few more hot days and the bay is going to be cooked. You are going to need to find the holes and deeper water as the temps rise. I will be out on Saturday with my radio tuned to 68.

Bottom.....if you sit at 132 and look at 139, Grassy is to your immediate left...just make a left hand turn at 132 and you'll go over some shallower bars and such but not for too long....maybe a 100/150 yards or so....and then it will drop off into 9/12 feet, tide stage dependent. You are now in Grassy....if you look out towards the inlet Grassy continues down that way and if you look the other way Grassy goes up into there too but not as far...it is not a completely well defined area but has lots of little humps and ridges etc...that is what makes it good fish holding bottom...good current there too at the right tide stages...hope this helps.

Do you really think that fish was caught in Grassy?

Well Fluke,
I am glad to hear you had success. I was out Friday as well and that wind was murder. A few shorts was all we claimed.

When you wanna take me out for a fishing lesson ;) ?
