Island Life Outfitters: April Showers Bring Fish?

Mikey Sabadic, of Island Life Outfitters, like so many other local fishermen, is patiently waiting for the fish to show up closer to home.

April showers bring….fish?  With April we see fish migrating closer to the OBX but very few fish have been caught at home on the island.   A solid bite still continues inland with trout and redfish. We have seen some sea mullet and black drum showing up down south around Avon to Frisco, as well as a few puppy drum but a scattered bite.

This time of year the freshwater bass fishing turns on as the weather warms up and they are hungry from a long winter. Within the next few weeks, everything should be starting to happen here, we’ll see trout around the inlet and little bridge. Perch and some puppy drum should be showing up in numbers within the next month or so, hopefully.

Island Life Outfitters, specializes in wade and kayak fishing adventures, for all ages and skill levels.  If you plan to visit the Outer Banks, a fishing trip with Mikey should be on your “to-do” list if you enjoy fishing or perhaps are even a first-timer just wanting to try your hand at fishing.  Mikey will design a fishing adventure around you or your group.

Kayaks and rods are supplied, even though some people prefer to use their own.  Mikey can also act as a guide on privately owned boats.
