Fishing Report:
It was a nice warm, sunny day. It was windy but it should not have kept anyone from taking advantage.
Down on Hatteras Island at ramp 43 and 44 there were Blow toads and Sea Mullet.
Kitty Hawk Bay was a good place to catch Trout this weekend. Justin Manners bait of choice was popping corks and he said all the Trout were keepers.
Matt Paulson and a buddy caught their limits of Trout.
TW’s Curtis Gum taking advantage of his free time caught Trout in Kitty Hawk. More picture tomorrow when I get every ones name.
Nate Tanner fishing with a fly rod hooked a Largemouth Bass. I wished I had learned to fly rod fish. Tried it but no go.
Carmine sent a Catfish picture in from the James River. I love a Catfish sandwich.
Richard Barnhouse wrote in about the fish skeleton I posted on the fishing report yesterday. He wondered if it might be Dolphin vertebrae. Bobby Nusbaun said maybe a Spiney bonefish.
