Went fishing with Captain Froggy's Charter Fishing on April 26, 2022
This was our first time fishing in Manteo, we caught a quantity of small fish that will be perfect for dinner, which was our goal. We also took and hour to go for another type after we had the quantity that we were looking for. It was a great experience, a little different than we expected, but a good time was had by all. We know it is early in the season so we did anticipate to have less options as far as what was biting.

If you are there as early in the season as we are, note that you can get some action but less with the listed fish. We landed 25 2-4lb blue catfish in the 3+ hours on the water at the spot he guided us to. That was plenty of action to keep my 10 year old engaged and happy.

Ribbon fish are predators and scare other fish away…but great eating so that is a bonus.

Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Captain Jeremy answered right away and was very professional.

We fished in a slow part of the season, the first week of April. I would love to go back and try again for something other than shark.

What can one ask in advance on one's first trip? I was told you had AC and you were untruthful. It did not. Not offering life vests is irresponsible.

May fishing will vary greatly year to year because it is so early in the season sometimes it's warm sometimes it's cold.

Go on a really sunny day. Cobia are spot fish and if the weather is overcast, it is really hard to spot them.

I don't think you can wrong with any type of fishing in the area. Wide array of species to catch.
