I'm going to wait and see what happens , If it looks like the "Rona" numbers stay down I'll do trip but for now I'll watch and plan on a fall trip.

From my friends that live there things in the grocery stores are scare , So bring all the paper products with you and any cleaning supplies you think you'll need , The Seafood markets are aren't well stocked since the commercial markets aren't buying since a lot of restaurants aren't opening up yet so commercial fishermen aren't going out if they have nowhere to sell it . Plan accordingly

just got here in kitty hawk. Getting the cottage ready for what rentals still want to come. Hopefully friday I will start at sunrise for close to shore and latter for whoever is hungry. Near frisco a 3lb sea mullet caught. Best Ive done is 1.8 lb. Let yall know how it goes. Takes longer for kitty hawk to heat up.

My schedule looks like I’ll be going on the 28th after work. Maybe the weather will cooperate. Problem will be deciding what to fish for. Mullet, blues, drum, trout, tuna, dolphin?? Hard decisions

from what Im understanding according to tw fishing report the blues should be everywhere, big drum arte at the point, sea mullet and most varieties are south of oregon inlet but as things warm up fishing should improve going north to kitty hawk where Im at this weekend. I hope to get out tomorrow ans see whats biting on sand fleas both real and artificial.

Yeah, missed a whole week in April. During the spring and fall I usually do so.e overnights when you can stay on the beach. In between I just make a long day trip. Saturday looks like the best day anyway I think.

We shall see!!

Thanks for the update @beachcaster Looks like we're heading down Saturday and will be staying in KH. Talked to a guy yesterday who said he had been catching plenty of Sea Mullet including a couple over a lb.
