Fall Albie Blitz
False Albacore Fly and Light Tackle Fishing (October-November)
Prices Starting at:
3/4 Day: $600
Full Day: $750
In fall, as the coastal waters cool, baitfish flood out of the local inlets and the predator fish along the beaches respond with feeding frenzies that can be epic at times! This is a fly or light tackle fisherman's dream... Running the beaches looking for birds and/or splashing fish is the name of the game. False albacore are hard fighting fish that blister the drag on fly or spin reels and hit flies and lures at or near the surface and take off running. This fishing is very exciting and there is a cult following of "albies" up and down the east coast, where Cape Lookout often is the epicenter of the action. Other species that sometimes partake in the fall blitz are sharks, Spanish and king mackerel, bluefish and redfish, sometimes even giant redfish or "old drum." If you're a big fish junkie, you owe it to yourself to come to check out Cape Lookout in the fall!
