Sorry for not updating my page lately, we have been staying very busy doing out of town work for Joe Shute Lures and Fish Finder Tackle. Hopefully the weather will start to improve and the fishing will pick up. Right now the news is the cold stun event for the speckled trout. Monday NCDMF issued a proclomation closing both the recreational and commercial harvest of speckled trout due to the cold stun event that killed a large number of speckled trout. The season will remain closed until June 15th . There have not been any sightings of bluefin tuna yet out of Morehead City area that can be confirmed. Hopefully the bluefin will show up here or off Oregon Inlet by the middle of this month.
