Great fishing again this past week on the Outer Banks. My best trip was with John Barlow and his crew. It was a beautiful day and just a little breezy in the afternoon. We were one of the first boats on the fish that morning before the fleet showed up allowing us a good head start. We didn’t have any huge fish, but several in the low 30’s and most in the 20 pound range. We caught our limit and released everything else, alive. I did hear of several fish in the 40’s and a 54 lb piggy caught on Capt. Arron’s boat. It was a tough day of fishing, as the fish must have been feeding on the full moon. We spotted several schools of Stripers on top feeding on small glass minnows, but it was hard to get them to bite. We did release several fish that were 28-30” to grow bigger and hopefully catch several years from now. We trolled for most of the day with mixed success, but had no luck jigging. With the cold weather still around, I think we have a few weeks left before the Striper bite is done. I do have dates open and starting to book spring and summer charters.
