Sound Fishing Kitty Hawk Help!




I have family coming down from Wisconsin next weekend (10/18) and we are staying at a place in Kitty Hawk bay and would really appreciate some tips and advice on where to fish in the sound and what to use. I have a 21' bay boat center console and would really like to take them out fishing and show them a good time catching trout, flounder, and reds. Preferably something we can eat!

Anything helps! Thanks!

Okay can these people handle a rod and cast a lure? Big question. If youre looking to just drop a bait you have to basically go way South. In the Kitty Hawk area It's all Trolling or Casting. First choice is try the bridge(WMB). Quite a few "Short Stripers " casting or trolling around and through pillars. You really will have work hard to get a keeper. You might be surprised with a Trout and Puppy Drum. Watch your sizes! Forget Flounder unless you fish the Inlet Area (Davis Channel). Your guest will need fishing license. A lot more to say. You may check with Tw's B&T and get reports from LOCALS. If you don't want to go South you may be able to catch some bottom fish in the holes or toward Collington. Real small Croaker, Spot maybe a Catfish

yes we are all very experienced when it comes to fishing. Just not so much in saltwater. I have experience fishing around Morehead and Wrightsville but this is my first time making a trip to this area. Thanks for the info.

Fishing the Kitty Hawk Bridge can be very productive. Small Bucktails, Grub Tails, Rattle Traps, not Metal. A real big suggestion would be to trailer the boat to Oregon Inlet, launch at the Fishing Center and go to the South side of the main channel over to Davis Channel and Green Island Slough. Although October fishing can be waning, there still should be some Flounder in Davis, Fish the downsides to the deep water with Finger Mullet or Flounder Belly. There should also be some Puppy Drum, Bluefish and Trout in the general area. Slack water you can fish the Bridge pillars for possibly Stripers, Black Drum or Sheepshead. Good Luck, leave one for me.
