Outer Banks, North Carolina - Saltwater Fishing Report
Kitty Hawk

<p>The past few charter had great success with jigging and casting for the big Stripers. Some days, we have done a fair amount of motoring around, until we mark the big schools, but thatís when the fun starts. Just drop a 3-4oz bucktail over the side, jig it a few times, and hold on. Most fish have been in the 30-40lb. Range, but a few have top over the 50 mark. If the weather holds out, all of February and most of March should be fantastic fishing. I do still have some dates open, so give me a call or send an email for dates.

Tight lines,

Capt. Ray
