Bobs Bait And Tackle Outer Banks Fishing Report 3/4/2017

We are now open 7 days a week for the 2017 season. Come by as we are getting the new 2017 inventory in daily. As far as the fishing news we have had a very scattered puppy drum bite on the northern beaches when conditions are good. Down south towards Hatteras fishing has been pretty good with lots of puffer fish, nice size sea mullet, and few puppy drum.

We went to Guatemala fishing again in December. The fishing was epic, in three days we caught and released 73 pacific sailfish, and a blue marlin. On the surf the past couple of days we have had skate, dogfish, and few bluefish. We will be closing for the season on Jan. 1st and will re-open March 1st.

Outer Banks Recreational Fishing Report 19 Nov 16

Outer Banks Recreational Fishing Report 19 Nov 16

OCEAN:   Fishing success improved this previous week after a very  slow period before hand mostly due to the weather element.  Activity levels were very low offshore out of Hatteras, the few that went were rewarded very well with limits of king mackerel and citation size wahoo and blackfin tuna.  Scattered catches of dolphin, yellowfin tuna, little tunny, and triggerfish added to the bounty.  No nearshore activity was reported.  Offshore anglers fishing via Oregon Inlet had improved success as well, no particular species were caught in high numbers but diversity was good with citation size wahoo and blackfin tuna being most notable, king mackerel, dolphin, and assorted sharks were also caught in moderation.  No nearshore activity reported at this location also.

INLETS/SOUNDS/BAYS: Fishing inshore in the South region has recovered nicely with red drum of all sizes being caught including high numbers of over-slot giants being released, moderate amounts of spotted seatrout and small bluefish made for some good table fare.  Anglers in the Northern area have been concentrating on striped bass for the most part with limits caught about half of the time, bluefish and dogfish sharks were caught in moderation along with a host of others in low amounts.

BEACH/PIERS:  The red drum catches continue to be good with adverse weather conditions yielding plenty of over-slot giants for those braving the elements.  Anglers in the South beach region also caught plenty of bluefish in the 1-2lb range along with moderate amounts of both black drum and sea mullet.  Northern beach catches were similar with the addition of moderate amounts of spotted seatrout of all sizes.

Recreational Fishing Report 15 Nov 2016

Recreational Fishing Report 15 Nov 2016

OCEAN:  To say that fishing has taken a ” step backwards”  this previous week would be quite the understatement .  Offshore anglers were pretty much shut out with only a few exceptions, Hatteras trips were very few and only yielded low amounts of assorted species including dolphin, amberjack, king mackerel, little tunny, and assorted sharks.  The only exception was one boat did manage to catch and release a swordfish, nearshore activity was non-existent.  Action via Oregon Inlet was limited even more so with the weather element keeping boats at the dock.

INLETS/SOUNDS/BAYS:  Unfavorable weather limited anglers in the Southern area with very low activity and low success rates.  Northern area fishing was fair in the Sounds if you could deal with the abusive wind & spray, mostly striped bass of all sizes along with a few spotted seatrout and red drum were the offerings.

PIER/BEACH:  Mother nature made it tough on these fisherman also, red drum continue to be the primary target with decent catches by those braving the elements, large size kingfish, (sea mullet) have been mixed in on a regular basis for a nice added bonus along with a few scattered bluefish, black drum, and flounder.
