  1. I just got home from spending a week at the Outer Banks. I fished three days at the LITTLE BRIDGE which is located between Manteo and Nags Head. I fished the South side of the bridge and caught six hickory shad. The shad were plenty and the ones I caught were 14" and weighed about 2 lbs. I also caught two stripers and they were 14.5" and 16". I had better results when I fished between 8-11PM. I used char truce grubs. The other three days I spent fishing the Kitty Hawk Pier. The Blues were thick and I was catching them and hickory shad on plastics: white grubs, white fluke and white/silver fluke. A fella at the pier taught me how to tie a two grub rig. I caught one speckled trout on a 4" white grub that was 14" long. The specks were being caught in the wash from time to time. A local caught a 23" trout on a clear with a light purple tail. I also caught 6 puffer fish on a 2 hook bottom rig with 2 oz. weight. I was using shrimp. I only fished with shrimp for about 2 hrs. I wasn't interested in catching puffers so I didn't fish with a bottom rig long. The water temp was around 56. IMO once it gets up to 60 in a couple weeks I think the bite will be on. I'm going back in three weeks for a few days and look forward to doing some more fishing.

  5. I went to Bob's bait and tackle in Duck,NC today and met Ed. Ed works at Bob's and was very knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. It's nice to go to a business and feel welcomed.
