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 a serious fisher I would not recommend this time of the year. I would wait until May or November time frame when there is a greater vary of fish,

Sun block. Plenty of food and drinks. A good attitude. Also understand that sometimes the conditions are not good for the fish you are after, and listen/consider the Captain's recommendations. Sometimes it works out better.

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.

It's still hot in the afternoon so be sure to wear plenty of sunscreen. When booking be sure you know if you're going out just a mile, 9 miles or further ortherwise I found September a great time to go

Book your accommodations early and make sure you can change dates or get a refund. Most places are sold out! Also reconfirm with your guide service to make sure the fishing you want to do is working well with the recent trips and check out latest reviews.
