    Default Fishing In January?

    Anything worth fishing for near nags head in January? Thought about extending my vaca when I go swan hunting and doing some fishing while down that way.

    Sent from.......wait....where am I?!

    Tuna are offshore. Yellowfins, bigeyes and bluefish are Round in January. Also wahoo are around. Occasionally you'll hear if a dolphin or two being caught.

    Stripers are also around inshore on and off of the beach in the winter.

    What would one use for stripers around the sure?

    Was planning to surf fish....assuming inshore charters run in January? Might be an option

    I think your odds in the surf for stripers are kinda low. Might be able to get into some decent sized blues. The manns Harbor bridge usually holds a fair amount of decent size fish, nothing like the ocean ones but still fun. Use 2 buck tails with grub trailers set up as a mojo.

    Yep, be about a month late for stripers.

    There's still pups in the surf if you go a little further south, also some of the smaller blues.

    Years ago you stood a chance of catching a striper in the surf but i haven't heard of them making it down this far in some time. Lots of dogfish to be caught and small blues. Occasionally a drum. I went every year in Dec and January for about 10 years, weather can be all over the map!
