When you say State Channel do you mean out near Oak Island, Thaganus Thatch etc. or the East West Channel up near the mainland? Just wondering if despite the cold water the fish are in the south of the bay too.

Nah, probably just the bottom again...

wondering the same thing that inspite the water temps the fish are following thier seasonal migration patterns.we fished between oak island and frank and dicks.though 4 flounders is not enough to prove our points the fish were nice and fat and bit aggressively.will try the south beacharea and mussel beds next week to see if we can catch up to the larger female fish that seem to split first.ithas happened before while the fleet is still fishing the flats and drains we hade them all to ourselves there dispite the water temps...
