Fishing Report
by Capt. Joe Shute
  04/19/14
 
OH BOY!  Here comes Easter Weekend, and the northeast winds will be here as well.  It looks like the offshore fishing for this weekend will be extremely rough.  Northeast winds from 15 to 25 knots will be around all the way through Monday.  There will be a likely chance of rain on Saturday and a possible chance of rain on Sunday.  The inshore fishing will more than likely a little slow due to the hard Northeast winds that we have been experiencing all this week.  The water in the sound is very stirred up and dirty. There have been some sea mullet caught in the turing basin and up around the Cape Lookout shoals.  The red drum fishing has been pretty good in the ocean for the last week.  There have also been some red drum back in the marshes.  Offshore the wahoo bite has still been very good with blackfin tuna andx gaffer dolphin mixed iin.
