Fishing Report: August 26, 2014

Hurricane Cristobal is making tracks away from the coast and moving away from North Carolina. Our shores are seeing some of the strong current and larger surf, but anglers are still managing to catch some fish. Off the Assateague Surf we are still having reports of Sharks, Skates, Bluefish, and early morning bites of Kingfish. In the bay, channels, and creeks anglers are reporting Croakers, Sharks, Skates, and Flounder.

Baits of Choice: Finger Mullet, Bunker Fillet, Mackerel, Squid, Shrimp, Bloodworm, Fishbites (Squid, Bloodworm, Shrimp, and Crab) and Peeler Crab

Recommended Rigs: Captain Steve’s Jumbo Surf Ball Rig, Mullet Rig, East Coast High Low Rig, Captain Steve’s Custom Made Shark Rig, Fishfinder Rig, or a Carolina Rig. 

Good luck out there and remember you can’t catch a fish unless you wet a line. Tight Lines Everyone!
