TW’s Daily Fishing Report

Friday April 7th, 2023

Big Drum, Big Sharks, and Big Trout have been the trend this week! Looks like we have a few days of nasty weather upon us, but mid week next week, the forecast looks beautiful! If you are looking for somewhere to escape the wind this Easter weekend, stop by and check out the new Marsh Wear Clothing ladies apparel we recently added!

In the surf, we have seen some nice Trout and Puppy Drum here in town and around Oregon Inlet. Down south, from the Point to Ocracoke, the Big Drum decided to show up in decent numbers over the last 3 days. However, there were a lot more Sharks then Drum… good numbers of Sea Mullet, Puffers, Bluefish, and small Croaker were also reported down on the south beaches.

Sound side, we have seen more Puppy Drum and Speckled Trout being caught as well as a few decent Black Drum. Josh Hagadorn stopped by the shop to fill out a release citation for a 24-inch Trout on Thursday, and this morning, Neil Carnigan stopped in and weighed a 5lb 5oz Citation Trout! Dont forget our Spring Trout Tournament is going on now, and it isn’t too late to enter!

Offshore the Yellowfin Tuna have been biting very good the last few days with multiple boats catching early limits! Along with the Yellowfin, we have heard reports of Blackfin, Wahoo, and even a White Marlin that was caught by the Afishionado!
