Surf Fishing Report:
A couple of boats sailed out of Pirates Cove early yesterday to give it a try before the storm. They loaded up on Ribbonfish.
I slept through whatever part of the storm we had last night. We have a beautiful morning with sun shining and winds at 35. I could have made it without turning the deck chairs over, but its not worth it to take a chance. Been there and done that.
I see that Jennette’s pier is going to open at 11 this morning. I’m pretty sure the others will also open but see no announcements.

The winds are SW at 32 and the water temp is 68 degrees. Mostly Sunny, strong winds, rough Ocean

Surf Fishing Report:
It is 8:30 am and I just called the piers. It is getting ready to rain or already raining on them right now. Avalon has caught some Mullet, Nags Head some Spot and Mullet, OBX some Spot.
The boats fishing the Inlet caught some Ribbonfish and Croakers yesterday.
I did not have any pictures this morning so I added one of mine. This is the much missed cat walk at the Oregon Inlet Bridge in the late 60’s. And that is my daughter and my mother fishing looking very serious trying to get it done. I get many questions to answer about the new bridge and about its sight seeing and fishing pier. There is no concrete answer to the question. We do know it’s running late in the making.
In a couple of days the storm will have passed and maybe there will be fish caught. Of course you always hear fish bite better before a storm. We will see.

The winds are SW at 8 and the water temp is 66 degrees. Partly sunny, light winds, small swells.

Surf Fishing Report:
The Island reported Sea Mullet and Croakers everywhere. We have a few Sea Mullet reported on this side of the bridge.
The only thing I have to say about the storm that’s on the way. They should never name a storm that even the weather reporters cannot pronounce. How bad is that?

The Little Bridge on the Nags Head/Manteo causeway reported catching Drum, Black Drum and small bottom fish.

Pier Fishing Report:
Avalon:Bluefish.
Nags Head: Bluefish, Spot, Mullet and a Pompano

Outer Banks: Bluefish, Flounder, Speck and Mullet.

Nearshore anglers caught Ribbons and Albacore. Trout and Drum fishing is good in the sounds.

Offshore Boats Report:
All I have for offshore this morning is Tilefish, Sea Bass and a couple Blue Marlin

The winds are SW at 17 and the water temp is 68 degrees. Mostly sunny, windy, small swells.

Surf Fishing Report:
Some Bluefish were reported on the island yesterday and some also some on our north beaches beyond Corolla. Fishing should pick up to day. The conditions are improving. A correction on the Tiger Shark that was posted yesterday. I t was a Sand Tiger Shark and the angler knew that also. I just left off the word Sand. A couple of readers picked up on that and contacted me. I don’t get away with anything.
