Fishing Report:
A beautiful day on this sand bar.
I have no beach report today. I have some news from the sound.
As you know TW’s tackle offered free bait this weekend. That was a good move and there was lots of feedback. I was wishing for more pictures.
Jennie Thomas’s daughter caught catfish. Jennies e-mail said this. I only took one pack of the fish because there were only three left; I was grabbing it for my kids and didn’t want another kid to not have bait. My kids have had to stay home because of the current situation and the opportunity to fish yesterday was great for them. I wanted to say thank you and share my daughters catch. Unfortunately I did not get the daughters name.
Justin Manners caught his bag limit of Trout by 8:30 and he also sent an early morning picture of the sound. What a wonderful feeling that must be to be on the water at that time.
I have not heard from him in a while but Andrew Gluba sent a picture of one of the catfish he caught fishing Bebop’s pier. The catfish had parasites. Gross.

The winds are W at 19 and the water temp is 63 degrees water surface. Sunny, breezy, calm, flat Ocean.

Fishing Report:
The only news this morning would be Blow toads at Buxton.
Staying in the house full time with family is tough. Zane Harper and his Dad are making lures from blanks or repainting old lures since schools have been closed. Good job.
Rich Stone sent in a picture of Tuna caught. He did not say where but he gave a date of March 31. The fishing will be improving soon. I like to know your name, the name of your fish and where you are fishing. Any other news you want to volunteer is always good as in your bait of choice.
I have another Turkey picture this morning. Though they did not say I think maybe it was Youth day. Though our store is not open right now getting hunting pictures always gives me an opportunity to remind everyone what great hunting inventory we have.

The winds are SW at 4 and the water temp is 52 degrees. Mostly sunny with t-storms, light winds, large swells.

We are experiencing another day of high winds. It definitely is keeping the fishing news at a minimum. Breyden Parnell found a place to do some crappie fishing.

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.

The winds are NE at 12 and the water temp is 57 degrees. Water surface at Jennette’s Pier is 66. Mostly sunny, light winds, flat Ocean.
