    July was hot, August has been rough. That said, the bite in Hatteras is just getting good. I suspect this NE blow we are having now is going to send more fish this way and they’ll be fired up when they get here.

    Default August full moon bite

    We were there for the full moon in August when that system sat down on the coast all week with thunderstorms. Tons of bait, no markers. Finally Friday 16th an overnight storm broke around 10am and we ran out near Broad Creek and the wife threw it down the mouth of this shouldered moose. Only bite that week, and after talking to anyone we could and checking the posts here, he was the only one that came over the rail that week apparently. Bait everywhere, definitely blues cutting swim baits in half. Heading back this week, hoping to find some shop with mullet to buy so we can try some night soaking.

    Where can you buy mullet near Oriental/Whortonsville?

    They are super nice. That's who turned us on to Blabbermouth rigs. I spoke to them in August and he said they have a standing order for 500lbs every morning, BUT... their phone number is dead and emailing them through their website came back as a dead email. No way to reach them. I was hoping to pay for and reserve some mullet before it's all sold out again.

    ***Just called again and their phone line is back up. Got 50lbs reserved. That should be good for 3-5 people soaking 2-3 nights for a few hours each. Or daytime soaks if the chop is up.

    When mullet is mentioned here, is that jumping mullet?

    It "used" to be jumping mullet, now it's frozen mullet.

    I was being cheeky. Yes it is big 12 inch jumping mullet. Neuse River BnT still has not got any in this week but they turned us on to B & J Seafood market over the bridge in New Bern. They have plenty. Bought 50lbs from them. $2 per pound. Our 18 yo daughter landed a 44 inch female this morning on it!
