Still not much on the fishing front to report today as the weather has just been crappy! Lots of folks coming in and asking about fishing, what's been biting, what's the best bait, etc. etc. Many times we've said that sand fleas make amazing bait right now and we get that "deer in the headlights" look.
BTW, the ones with the eggs sacks are the best for bait! Not only do we sell them fresh at times, we also sell them frozen. Or we can even teach you how to catch them yourself!
Tight Lines and See you soon!
FRANK & FRAN'S HATTERAS ISLAND FISHING REPORT - 6/11/19
