The weather is warming up and the fishermen and lady anglers on the OBX and elsewhere are already watching fishing reports, checking the pier and getting their tackle ready and dreaming of big catches. The Outer Banks is known for outstanding fishing...whether it is from a charter boat, from a pier, in the surf or in the waters of the sound. Before you head out for that annual fishing trip here we wanted to share some quick tips with you that will hopefully find helpful.
Make sure you have a North Carolina Recreational Fishing License!
You need to have one if you will be fishing from your own boat in coastal waters or if you are surf fishing or plan on fishing in the Roanoke Sound, Albemarle Sound or the Currituck Sound.
Most of the area tackle stores sell these licenses and you may also get one online at www.NCFisheries.net.
If you want to know what is biting and how to catch it, ask the employees at the tackle shop. They know the latest information and are happy to share. You can find out what bait to use and where the fishing are biting.
