Surf Fishing Report:
We have a dismal looking day. We know when Eta moves on the fishing will be good again. I understand there was a big bite of slot and citation size drum at the point early Thursday morning just before Eta. This is a good day to roam through the store and see what new merchandise is coming in. We have the holidays coming up.
The boats are not sailing again today, but the pier Jockeys are out. All the piers are catching Sea Mullet and Jennette’s added small Puppy Drum to the report.
The weather is suppose to break later today. Today is Friday the 13th. Anyone superstitious?

The winds are N at 16 and the water temp is 66 degrees. Morning showers, breezy, rough Ocean.

Outer Banks Fishing Report

Surf Fishing Report:
Hatteras Island had Puppy Drum and Sea Mullet. Jason Gregory caught an Albie from the point. It happens. We have Drum, Trout and Black Drum on the north beaches. Coleman Holland bagged a deer in Southampton County. Getting pictures from hunters gives me a chance to remind everyone we have a good supply of hunting supplies and clothing.
We are expecting heavy rainfall as the remnants of Eta passes off the coast into Friday. A cold front is expected to cross the area this afternoon and a stronger cold front will push across Monday.
Nothing happening this morning to write about. The winds stuck around another day so our offshore fleet docked for another day.

The winds are SSE at 11 and the water temp is 66 degrees. Heavy rain, breezy, med swells.
