Outer Banks Fishing Report

April was a bit chilly, but the fishing was still a blast. We had some slower days, but overall, we had a great time out on the water. The waters are starting to warm up, and the fishing is only going to get better from here. I still have a few openings in the first couple of days of May and May 17th, so if you're looking to get out on the water and have some fun, let's make it happen. We'll bring all the gear you need, you just bring your snacks and drinks. Can't wait to see you out there!
